Lemba likes to play with her caregivers' shoes. The caregivers at Tchimpounga are very patient and allow the small chimpanzee to nip, hit and hide their sandals.
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.
Lemba is an amazing chimpanzee. Despite her physical limitations, Lemba performs exercises every day during the games Tchimpounga’s caregivers have created for her. The games help restore her agility and arm strength. We can learn so much from Lemba!
