Wildlife in Serengeti-Park

Chimpanzee | Pan troglodytes

You are right in front of our 3,000 square meter green island for our chimpanzees – our closest relatives in the animal kingdom. This is located in the Amboseli Schimpansen Reservat. Since chimpanzees cannot swim, the natural limitation of the moat is completely sufficient. The rocks, tree trunks, climbing ropes and the many greens offer our chimpanzees a lot of variety. The island is so extensive that young animals spend many weeks on their mother’s back to get to know their surroundings. You can watch the chimpanzees search for hidden food that the keepers hid for them in a variety of places.

Serengeti-Park animals: Chimpanzee

The gestation period lasts seven months, a juvenile is sexually mature at eight to ten years and can live up to 60 years old. Even chimpanzees lose their milk teeth, which happens with them at the age of four. They like fruits, grains, leaves, nuts, eggs as well as insects and small mammals. They are very careful with their offspring. Chimpanzees have a pronounced social life with several adult females and males and a gendered hierarchy. Their territorial structure defends them against other groups.
