Bwindi Bar

Bwindi Bar, the ‘Harry’s Bar of Bwindi’, on Buhoma high street near Volcanoes Safaris Bwindi Lodge, held a graduation ceremony recently for the latest graduates of its award-winning practical hospitality training program.

Six trainees, all from the local community around Bwindi Lodge, successfully completed the three month training course. It provides practical experience and an introduction to the hospitality industry to young people. The training helps graduates get skills and support in finding jobs in Volcanoes Safaris lodges or other lodges and hotels in the region.

The recent training program at Bwindi Bar has conducted in partnership with DEG as part of a series of projects for Covid-19 healthcare and training to support communities in Rwanda and Uganda. Please read more here.

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.
