Sweetwaters

Does anybody know if you get to interact w/ the chimps at the sanctuary at Sweetwaters? What does meeting Morani the rhino mean? Do you get to touch him, get your picture with him? Also, can you ride camels at Sweetwaters?

Been to Sweetwaters in 2001, i believe. The only reason i went was, because, the group i travelled with wanted to go there.........

Yes, you get to touch the rhino and take photos......very gentle....

Chimps, i dont remember so........overall, i wouldnt go out of my way to plan a trip there.......

The chimps are in a protected area, across a creek from the viewing area. Close interaction is not possible from that distance. However, you do get a good idea of their behaviours in the wild rather than in a completely artificial zoo-like situation.

Just to confirm what others have said, my experience from last year was that you could not interact with the chimps but you can touch and take pictures with Morani. Short camel rides are offered.
