Description

I was extremely privileged to be able to be the first American to enter the park since the new Disney Chimpanzee movie was released. But because I didn't undergo the required 5 day quarantine before seeing the chimps (to avoid passing them fatal respiratory viruses), I was not permitted to enter the Tai Chimp Project area. We were looking for sooty mangabeys in the Tai Monkey Project area about 4km away from the Chimp Project, and the chimps came in to hunt Red Colobus. This is the same group that was filmed in the movie - can't say how lucky this sighting was and what a privilege it was.
