Volcanoes Safaris in Just Luxe

To mark our 25th anniversary, we have started building a new fifth lodge at a site near Kibale National Park in Uganda. We found the perfect spot for our Kibale Lodge that is only one hour from Kasese airstrip and a short 30 minute drive from the chimp tracking base in the Kibale Forest – home to about 1,500 chimpanzees, one of the largest communities of chimps in Africa.

Our Kibale Lodge is scheduled to open in 2023 and we are thrilled to see it listed in Just Luxe’s article that highlights 9 of Africa’s & The Middle East’s Most Anticipated Luxury Resort Openings.

This expansion complements the existing circuit of lodges developed by Volcanoes Safaris to offer a seamless safari experience across Rwanda and Uganda, giving guests access to the countries’ most beloved parks for great ape trekking and wildlife tourism.

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.
