Lola Ya Bonobo Sanctuary

Kinshasa, Congo, Democratic Republic

Just 90 minutes outside of Kinshasa, this sanctuary provides a home for orphaned bonobos.Claudine Andre founded Lola ya Bonobo, the only sanctuary for bonobos in the world, in 2002 after caring for orphaned bonobos since 1993. These inherently peaceful primates, who resemble chimpanzees, are incredibly intelligent and known for solving most of their problems with sex. There are various trails through their forested enclosures, but you're just as likely to find these loving creatures hanging around by the main building.
