Book launch of Walking With Gorillas by Dr Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka

Praveen Moman, founder Volcanoes Safaris and Kevin James, COO, were delighted to attend the UK launch of Walking With Gorillas, the new book by Dr Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka. The event was hosted at the Uganda High Commission in London and sponsored by Volcanoes Safaris.

The evening was started with a welcome by Her Excellency Nimisha Madhvani, Uganda High Commissioner to the UK and featured a discussion between Dr Gladys and with BBC’s Claudia Hammond, as well as reading from the book from Dr Glady’s two sons Ndhego and Tendo Zikusoka.

Praveen Moman closed the evening with some remarks and reflections on Dr Gladys’ long-term conservation work in Uganda and how the collaboration of organisations and individuals involved in community based conservation is crucial to the survival of the endangered great apes and their fragile habitats over the next 25 years.

Safari Activities

Chimpanzee Tracking

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.
