About Calabar Drill Ranch

Drills are found only in Cross River State in Nigeria, South Western Cameroon and on Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea.

Calabar Drill Ranch is a Drill Rehabilitation and Breeding Centre. It is an NGO that aims to preserve a very endangered African primate, the Drill. It also serves as an orphanage for chimpanzees. Most of the Drills were donated by citizens of Cross River state; others were recovered by wildlife or park officers, or the police.

The ranch\'s biggest chimpanzees (ages 7-28 yrs) live in their own natural forest enclosure at Afi Drill Ranch, Boki in Cross River State, Nigeria, while the young ones live together in a chimp nursery at Calabar.

For more information on Afi Drill ranch, Boki or Calabar Drill ranch both in Cross River State, visit their website at

Entry to Calabar Drill ranch is free with a free tour guide but visitors might choose to make free will donations.
