In May 2018, the team at Volcanoes Safaris participated on a 2-weeks long training session. The training, headed by Philippe Krenzer, a leading consultant on Hospitality who has been an adviser for Volcanoes Safaris for ten years, and Jean Marc Seguin-Miniaou, covered many aspects of Volcanoes Safaris guest's experience and service and the entire operations, lodges and office teams took part in it.
Guy Krenzer and Stephane Chicheri, renowned chefs from Le Nôtre in Paris for whom food is an art, have been working with our chefs curating a new breakthrough in Rwandese inspired food.
"Working towards being even more African chic and luxury with the most eager East African staff!" Jean Marc Seguin-Miniaou
"Life is made of great Moments: playing volleyball with the Volcanoes Safaris team at Virunga Lodge is one of them", Philippe Krenzer & Jean Marc
"Happiness really comes from ‘giving’. Stephane Chicheri, French Chef and head of the Lenôtre school was moved when he offered a sheep to a Villager at Virunga Lodge
Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor is nothing short of exhilarating. The chimps effortlessly cross and scamper through the trees above the gorge, and visitors on the other hand must cross the river using natural bridges in order to keep up with the chimps. So although the walk usually lasts only 2–3 hours, descending the steep gorge and crossing the log bridges over the river requires some agility and fitness.
Chimpanzee tracking is also available in nearby Kalinzu, a forest reserve 30 minutes drive from Kyambura Gorge Lodge where there is a community of about 40 habituated chimpanzees.
