Happy holidays from the Volcanoes Safaris team.

Here are a few of our favorite moments from 2023. We were delighted to share them all with you!

We hosted a panel discussion in January on The Future of Gorillas and Chimpanzees in the Albertine Rift with the Jane Goodall Institute, Conservation Through Public Health, Gorilla Doctors, Ape Alliance, The Gorilla Organisation and other conservation partners.

The first stones of our new chimpanzee lodge in Uganda, Kibale Lodge, were laid in June.

In July, Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust launched the Kyambura Lion Monitoring Project.

In 2024, we plan to build a vocational centre near Virunga Lodge which will provide practical training and apprenticeships in carpentry and tailoring to young people living nearby.Read how you can support the project here.

We were delighted that our lodges received recognition in several prestigious awards during 2023! Please support us in the Travel & Leisure World's Best Awards 2024.

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.
