The Kyambura Drama and Dance Group is made up of 30 members ranging from 12-50 years old from disadvantaged families, from the Omumashaka Village, near Queen Elizabeth National Park in South West Uganda.
Representing five local tribes, the group performs educational plays about conservation and HIV/AIDS awareness to the people of the local community once a month, as well as to Volcanoes Safaris guests staying at Kyambura Gorge Lodge.
Led by the enigmatic Robert, the group uses the medium of dance to promote education and awareness of local issues as well as providing a great show for guests at the Kyambura Gorge 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.
