Christmas at Mahale

Amazingly the Chimpanzees decided to walk through camp on Christmas Day. It was a special present for our guests especially Laury Isenberg who has difficulty walking. The community sat eating big ripe figs in a tree next to the staff quarters. Laury was sitting on a portable seat watching when Kalunde and Alofu walked right up to her and sat down only feet away. Their was no way that Laury could move back the required 10 meters so we all watched as the two old males sat peacefully next to Laury who had Mwiga our trainee guide standing behind her reassuringly. Another memorable Christmas at Mahale.
