Each year, the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada offers the unique opportunity to visit our project sites in Africa. Our trips provide travellers the chance to visit places that are accessible only when accompanied by expert JGI staff. Destinations vary each year and have included travel to the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo; overnight stays at the famous Gombe Stream Research Station in Tanzania where Dr. Goodall began her ground-breaking study of wild chimpanzees; and visiting community projects in Uganda.

JGI Canada trips are highly customized to maximize time spent in the field, meet the JGI team, engage with local communities, and witness chimpanzees in the wild as well as the chimps rescued from illegal trafficking.

Seeing first-hand our projects in the field is a powerful demonstration of the importance of our work in conservation and with local people.

We will be offering two distinct trips in 2020:

June 12-18: Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo – See Trip Itinerary

June 19-26: Conservation sites and community projects in Uganda – See Trip Itinerary

To join us on a trip of a lifetime, the cost for each destination is $15,000, exclusive of airfare. A portion of this cost will be tax deductible.


We closely monitor the regions we visit to ensure the health and safety of travellers and staff. The well-being of everyone on our trips is our top priority, and we will reroute the trip or cancel a trip in-progress if events warrant.
