Praveen Moman was honored to attend the Tusk Ball at the London Natural History Museum in May 2022. Volcanoes Safaris donated a Founder's Safari, a Ugandan gorilla, chimpanzee and wildlife safari, which was auctioned at the ball.
Congratulations to Tusk Trust who raised £450,000 on the night for African conservation projects and hit its milestone of £100 million raised since it was founded in 1990.
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.
