A 7-day safari to Kyambura Gorge Lodge and Bwindi Lodge in Uganda includes a gorilla and chimpanzee trek, games drives to the tree-climbing lions, a boat cruise, and opportunities to engage with local community projects. Contact us at [email protected].
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.
