The world’s best hotels opening in 2023

With travel now firmly opened up across most of the globe, it is exciting to see the latest list from The Independent covering the ‘World’s Best Hotels Opening in 2023’.

What is even more exciting? Finding our very own Kibale Lodge featured on the list!

Scheduled to open later this year, Kibale Lodge will be the fifth lodge in the Volcanoes Safaris portfolio and will perfectly complement our existing circuit of lodges in Uganda and Rwanda. Located near Kibale National Park in Uganda, the lodge is a short drive from the chimp tracking base in Kibale Forest – home to about 1,500 chimpanzees, one of the largest communities of chimps in Africa.

Check out the full list of the most anticipated hotel openings for 2023 here.

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.
