Same same but very different! Similar to our previous post about Flash Uganda's guide to gorilla trekking in Uganda, we are happy to share Deadline's "Guide to Gorilla trekking in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park".
"The unique opportunity to see gorillas in their natural habitat is unforgettable, some even say life changing."
Our award winning Virunga Lodge is included in their list of the top places to stay while visiting the Volcanoes National Park.
With its timeless, hand-made style, the lodge has defined Rwandese Afro-chic since opening in 2004, making it the first accommodation choice for tracking the endangered mountain gorillas in nearby Volcanoes National Park. Exceptional hospitality, locally-inspired food and a private butler are hallmarks of our guest experience.
Make sure to read the full article before booking your journey as there are some great insider tips!
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.
