Vad du kommer att göra

Learn the basics of beekeeping and get a behind the scenes look at chimpanzees living in sanctuary in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains! This extra sweet, 2.5-hour experience has two exciting parts:

First, we'll share the basics of setting up a honeybee hive. We'll suit up and open an active hive for an up close look at the worker bees, drones and, maybe, the queen. You'll learn the different roles the bees play, some basic bee communication, and see how the bees store pollen and honey.

We may also feed the bees a little honey so you can examine a honeybee up close. Then we'll try some for ourselves! The bees at Project Chimps produce wildflower honey and sourwood honey and the excess is used as nutritional enrichment for the former research chimpanzees in our care.

Second, you'll have a rare opportunity to see some of the chimps and learn about their unique life in sanctuary. Because we aren't a zoo, you'll see the chimps in a relaxed, peaceful setting, unlike anything you've experienced before. The chimps have access to a 6-acre forest and while chimp sightings are never guaranteed, they usually like to see who has come to visit!

The walking tour lasts about one hour and is similar to a moderate hike. There is no contact between humans and chimps, but you will have the opportunity to see them up close and personal for a once in a lifetime experience!
Other things to note
While all precautions are taken to prevent bee stings, they may still occur. Be prepared!

Please note that Project Chimps is a sanctuary for chimpanzees previously used in medical research. It is not a zoo and the chimps are not on display. Chimps are almost always seen but it's their choice!

I'm Kathryn, the Volunteer Coordinator at Project Chimps, and I love introducing new guests to our sanctuary for chimpanzees retired from medical research. I am also a beekeeper in my home life and we have an active apiary at Project Chimps that I helped set up too! We harvest the honey just for the chimps. At Project Chimps, I will introduce you to beekeeping followed by a tour to see former research chimps up close in their 6-acre forested outdoor habitat. I started as a volunteer myself before the first chimpanzee arrived at this location and have been here ever since, working part time and now full time. We can't take care of these precious souls without folks like you coming to learn about them, meet them, and help us care for them. We look forward to meeting you!

The Honeybees and Chimpanzees was the most phenomenal experience I have ever witnessed. The Staff and the volunteers create a dynamic partnership that goes above and beyond the compassionate giving heart for the rescue. I will definitely be going back to visit, volunteer and continue to pray for their endeavors for this wonderful community to thrive and rescue every single chimpanzee from research.

My husband and I went on the Honeybees and Chimpanzees Airbnb experience at Project Chimps. Our host was Kathryn. There were was one other couple on our tour, so the experience was very interactive. Kathryn was great! We toured an active hive - all suited up in beekeeper gear - which was amazing. I loved being able to experience the bees up close and personal without the worry of being stung! After that, we toured the compound and visited the chimp villas. We were fortunate in that several of the chimps were in the mood to be very social (through glass). Kathryn was great at explaining the mission of Project Chimps, which is a sanctuary for chimps that were formerly used in medical research (which is no longer legal in the U.S., thankfully). Everyone down to a person at Project Chimps, staff and volunteers, was so friendly and happily answered all of our questions. It is quite obvious that they love the chimps and are dedicated to their well being. I highly recommend any program presented by Project Chimps!

It was our lucky day! The chimps were active and we spent quite a bit of time watching them. One of them put on quite a display right in front of us. Just unforgettable experience.
