Photo Competition Shortlist Announced!

We're pleased to announce that the Photo Competition has produced some fine entries and we have been hard pushed to narrow them down to a shortlist of spectacular images, with many more we wish we could have included.

We have selected a shortlist of twenty photographers whose images are now in a special album on our Facebook page. Now begins the next round of competition as you vote for the photo you think should win by liking it (and don't forget to like the Volcanoes Safaris page itself while you're there and subscribe to our updates). This round of competition continues until midnight on the 31st January going into the 1st February, when the photo with the highest number of likes will be crowned the winner!

IMPORTANT: The number of likes may continue to change after the winner has been decided; there will be an announcement from us on February 1st naming the winner and this will be a final decision. The winner will be awarded with a 4-Day Hiking and Culture in Mgahinga safari, subject to the terms and conditions of the competition.

Good luck to those on the shortlist and may the voting begin!

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.
