Volcanoes Safaris featured in East End Taste

We are delighted that Kyambura Gorge Lodge and the Kyambura Eco-tourism Project are featured in the latest edition of East End Taste Magazine.

“Kyambura Lodge is a popular destination to trek the Forgotten Chimpanzees of the Kyambura Gorge, a sunken forest where a family of 28 chimpanzees sadly find themselves isolated from other forests due to land degradation and habitat loss to encroaching villages.

Guests can contribute to the reforestation of 3km of land to provide protection for these chimpanzees. The 3km of land is secured to serve as a buffer along the northern part of the Kyambura Gorge.”

Safari Activities

Chimpanzee Tracking

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.
