Get a close-up view of recovering animals at Limbe Wildlife Centre, a sanctuary for orphaned primates. See western gorillas and chimps, mandrills, olive baboons, red-capped mangabeys, guenons, and vervet monkeys amidst a total of some 200 animals kept in large enclosures. Founded in 1993 as a sanctuary for rescued chimps, the center soon expanded to include other primates, as well as reptiles and birds across its grounds of man-made ponds and lush greenery. An education center within the sanctuary gives frequent lectures to groups of children and students.

  • One of the best places around Limbe to visit. This zoo is just opposite the botanical gardens and has one of the best pizza shops in the whole of South West Region of Cameroon. The workers are very welcoming and will go out of their way just to make sure you have a good time. I strongly recommend that you visit this place when you are in Limbe
  • Here, you can find a variety of less dangerous animals and the atmosphere is friendly. The best place I've ever been to in Limbe. Even from childhood. The best place to discover or see and have experience with animals from the jungle. Here we have the different types of monkeys, we can find orangutans, gorillas, baboons, chimpanzees and even some colorful birds and snakes. The environment is very conducive, and comfortable. The staff are welcoming, nice and their gate fees are also very affordable. Tourists from all over the world and the general public visit the LWC. I will be a great choice of visit and I'm recommend for anyone.
  • This is a very interesting place. It is very good for tourists. It contains ao many species of wild animals. The tour guards are really helpful as they walk with you and show you around and also answer all your questions regarding the place. The give you advices like not to throw stones at the animals otherwise it will make them angry. Love the place because it helps those who never knew names of animals to be more educated about them. Best place where parents can take their children
  • Touristic site. Beautiful garden just opposite the wildlife center (zoo)
