Energetic Mambou

Mambou is growing quickly.  Nothing remains of the tiny, exhausted, disoriented baby chimpanzee who arrived at Tchimpounga some time ago.  Thanks to the Jane Goodall Institute, particularly Tchimpounga’s caregivers, Mambou is now a strong and energetic chimpanzee.  He plays and laughs with his friends all day long.  No one can beat Mambou in his games.  Even Makasi, the chimp group leader, is exhausted after playing with Mambou.
