This unforgettable safari takes you deep into the jungles to track gorillas, and high up in the sky to take in the vastness that is Parc National des Volcans in Rwanda, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda. Recommended for those who spend more time working out than eating out, this safari offers hikes through the misty forests of Africa with outstanding guides who share privileged insights into the fascinating world of the great apes. Highlights include gorilla tracking, golden monkey tracking, volcano hikes and a Batwa heritage experience at the Mount Gahinga Lodge.
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.
