"The attempt began at the Amahoro National Stadium – the home of Rwandan football – at 8am on May 11 and finished at 11am on May 13, two full days and three hours later. Under the rules of the attempt, the batsman is allowed a five-minute break every completed hour to take on food and go to the toilet.
The attempt was supported by Volcanoes Safaris, who have been operating in Rwanda since 2000, as well as Surrey County Cricket Club, whose players wished Eric luck in a video before he began. Eric attempt breaks the 50-hour record set by Indian Virag Mare in 2015."
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.
