Volcanoes Safaris has been at the forefront of reviving gorilla and chimpanzee tourism in the region since 1997. Our lodges and safaris offer luxury gorilla trekking and chimpanzee tracking experiences.

In 1997 we were the first company to set up simple camps in the areas around the gorilla parks. Today, Volcanoes Safaris is the leading luxury lodge company in Uganda and Rwanda:

In 2017 we launched a strategic program to re-imagine all aspects of our lodges: design, style, the guest experience, food and service, lodge and safari activities, and guest participation in community and conservation projects.

This program has required significant investment and has already seen a major transformation of our lodges, which is due to be completed during 2020.

In 2017 Volcanoes Safaris lodges have been ranked on Condé Nast Traveler’s list of the best Africa Resorts in their 30th annual Readers’ Choice Awards.
