A few months ago a little chimpanzee entered the world that captured everyone’s hearts. Since her arrival, Mum Zombi and her baby have become firm favourites with fellow chimps, keepers and visitors and with touching scenes of the mum and baby, cuddling and kissing going viral.

In fact, there is only one thing missing from this wonderful story – a name!

Keepers have spent the last few months closely monitoring the chimp and in doing so have come up with names that they think are suitable for the littl’un.

But, they need your help. It’s up to you to choose the winning name.

Pick a name from the list below for your chance to win a Family Pass to Monarto Safari Park. Winner will be picked and notified on Monday 25th November 2019.

Names and explanations

Khari – Queenly, born to rule and bring joy.

Zenzile – One who can overcome life’s obstacles

Esi – Sunday born

Ziggi – Spunky personality and rockstar looks

Zola – Peace, tranquility and to love
