Thu 14 Apr- Bushwalk

Today it was off to the orphanage for our bushwalk with the chimps. I was feeling awful so didn’t really interact much but had fun watching the other guys playing with them. We were given food and drink to give them and they riffle through your pockets looking for more. They like sweet things like raisins and biscuits over the chips.

It was great to see them running around in the bush, leaping from tree to tree to person and to be able to get up close to them outside a cage.

Karla and her baby are very cute and she’s quite willing to let you touch the baby in exchange for food or some scratches.

It’s amazing how much they are like humans..looking bored and camera shy.

We all got to meet Sheilla who started it all which was nice but there was no sign of Billy the Hippo anywhere today.

I headed back to camp after this as I wasn’t feeling well and the other went to the enclosures. In the evening I helped innocent set up the wifi and a new printer so now I can catch up on my blogging..yay.

Hoping I feel better tomorrow as I want to test out my chimp toy.
