It will bring tears and laughter.

Eugene and his team treated and rehabilitated them like they were meant to live out their lives; as wild animals in a sanctuary.

Better than the Animal Planet series as broadcast; without all the teasers and commercials that slow the narrative, this surprisingly moving series will make you cry and make you laugh. The human hero inspires, and the chimps touch your heart; you'll never see a chimpanzee in captivity the same way again. What more can you ask from any experience than that? Eye-opening, life-affirming, uplifting stuff. You'll watch it more than once and you'll want everyone in your family to watch it with you. Well worth the purchase price.

I hardly ever watch TV but got hooked on this series from the get-go. The Chimp Eden sanctuary, located in South Africa and associated with the Jane Goodall Institute, is a refuge for chimpanzees, many of whom were orphaned by the bush-meat trade or abused in captivity. The Animal Planet series, which ran for two seasons, shows rescue missions and the rehabilitation that goes on at the sanctuary. Viewers see the progress of the individual chimps and their integration into chimp society. If you are interested in the great apes and their plight, you will love Escape to Chimp Eden. Presently, only Season One is available on DVD, although the episodes of Season Two can be downloaded through Amazon Video on Demand or iTunes. The important work of the sanctuary continues and can be monitored at the Chimp Eden website at [...].

We love Eugene, his staff and the chimps. The programs are educational, humorous and yes, sad on occasion. The rescue trips offer us insight into other areas of the world. We tape the programs and rewatch with our grandchildren over and over. Keep them coming, Animal Planet.

I TOTALLY LOVE THIS PROGRAM. I watch the the shows EVERY DAY !!! I drive my family crazy, because they don't understand why I watch the shows over and over. When I want to get rid of my family; all I need to do is turn on one of my recorded shows,and I clear the room in seconds. I record the programs every morning, and I do not erase them from my DVR. There were only two seasons recorded, I record and watch them as if there were 100 seasons. The other love of my life besides my husband, is COZI!!!I love everything about him; he is so mischievous, then he acts as if he has not done anything wrong. When I am exhausted, upset,or sad; all I need to do is watch him over and over. I am looking to purchase the second season if it becomes available.I really hate that the program no longer records.I really feel cheated that I don't get to see Cozi and the gang in their everyday life now.

Let me begin by saying I am not your usual Animal Plant viewer but after seeing a preview at the cinema of how chimps are treated and the shelter in which Eugene provides to these animals, I made a point of watching the first season and immediately purchased the DVD the moment I found out it was available.

Should you watch the show, you will not only be a witness to the barbaric ways in which animals are treated, but you will also see that it takes a whole family to nourish and love one in distress (i.e., the chimps). This season also showed the dynamic relationships the trainers shared with the chimps, the obstacles of reintroducing the animals to their own environment and learning how to let go.

Again, I'm not one to watch shows about animals often, but I encourage any and all to grab this DVD and see how magnificent human beings are as far as caring goes. I was not disappointed with this item and cannot wait for the new season to start again in April.

I followed this show on Animal Planet and was excited upon it's release of Season 1 on DVD. It follows the lives of orphaned chimps that are rescued and rehabilitated in a center in South Africa. Every chimp has it's distinct personality, making this an extremely entertaining watch!
