The Limbe Wildlife Centre The Limbe Wildlife Centre gives you a glimpse of life in the jungle brought to you right in the heart of a romantic city. It is a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre co-established by the Government of Cameroon and the Pandrillus Foundation in 1993.
It has been considered that due to its wealth in rare primate species, the name “zoo” is belittling of this hailed outfit which rather deserves the more befitting appellation of “wildlife sanctuary”.
The centre harbours about 15 endangered primate species one of which is the cross river gorilla subspecies (fewer than 300 remaining in the world), and other wild animals such as tortoises, crocodiles and pythons.
The centre serves broad educative programmes for primate lovers and also provides guided tours around the zoo. From the zoo, visitors can take a stroll to the Limbe Botanic Garden to admire one of the rarest and most beautiful faunae the country has to offer.
