Thanks to its private status it also allows such unforgettable pleasures as the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary (the only place in Kenya to see these highly endangered animals), night game drives, guided bush walks and camel-trekking across game-teaming plains. Thereafter, return to the camp for dinner and overnight stay and to view animals that come for a drink at the waterhole here. After lunch proceed for an afternoon game drive until sunset.

Hi Rashid

you will be able to find chimps only at the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary at Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

Please folow this link for more details.
Three subspecies of common chimpanzees are distributed across the forest zone of Africa from Guinea to western Tanzania and Uganda. Another species of chimpanzees, the bonobo (Pan paniscus), is found exclusively in central Democratic Republic of Congo. In East Africa the chimpanzee is found in the wild in Tanzania and Uganda, but only in captivity in Kenya. Gombe National Park in Tanzania is the first park in Africa specifically created for chimpanzees.
