Rise Of The Warrior Apes tells the epic, twenty five year story of an indomitable chimpanzee troop in Uganda. With a population three times larger than any other known to science, the incomparable success of the Ngogo chimps has been shrouded in mystery for decades. Through the extraordinary lives of a handful of individual chimp characters we experience a political drama and bloody conflict that unfolds deep in the African jungle. Using previously unseen archive footage, witness testimony from the scientists who have lived along side them since the study began in 1993, we chronicle the Rise Of The Warrior Apes – a true chimpanzee empire. It is a story of unbreakable friendship, fierce rivalry and unparalleled ambition and it reveals the shocking truth behind the most successful group of chimpanzees ever known.
