Andrea Thompson, Editor in Chief at Marie Claire UK commented how ‘the awards will shine a spotlight on brands and businesses that are genuinely making an effort to change their processes and make them better for people and planet’.
Rebecca Anyoli, Volcanoes Safaris Marketing Manager, said “We are delighted to win this award and be recognised for our long-term vision to develop lodges that have a low-impact on the environment, are sensitive to local culture and aesthetics, and use resources in a responsible and sustainable way”.
Thank you to all our staff, guests, trade partners and friends for all your support!
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.
