A Typical Tour

Preparing for Your Tour

Tours typically last two hours, and the duration of the tour is held outdoors. We recommend comfortable clothes and shoes year-round, and breathable clothing during hot summer months. Sunscreen and water is also recommended.

While tours typically occur rain or shine, if inclement weather causes your tour to be cancelled, we will work with you to reschedule.

An Experience for Every Visitor

Chimp Haven strives to provide a memorable and educational experience for every visitor. Please be aware that our events and tours take place outdoors in the sanctuary’s rural setting, and that certain areas may be difficult to navigate for those with limited mobility. Our parking lot and walkways may also be muddy in the event of rain. While Chimp Haven vehicles are not wheelchair accessible, we may be able to accommodate individuals whose mobility allows them to stand briefly and ride in a golf cart. If someone in your party has limited mobility, please note this on your reservation form or reach out to us at so we can discuss and plan suitable accommodations.
