VolcanoesSafaris - Fields Tea Harvesting

Ecotourism is a booming industry and we have seen a drastic rise in the number of environmentally conscious travellers who want to explore the world in a way that does not negatively impact the environment or local communities.

At Volcanoes Safaris we are thrilled to see this trend endure as we continue to keep communities and conservation at the heart of our unique lodges and guest experiences.

Given this, we are proud to see Bwindi Lodge feature in Travel2Next’s latest list of the Top 15 Ecolodges Worldwide.

Through the Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust (VSPT), there are many impactful projects to be discovered when visiting our lodges – click here to read more and learn how you can get involved.

For example, guests at Bwindi Lodge have the unique opportunity to visit Bwindi Bar or take a tea tour led by one of our local VSPT Project Coordinators. Both projects have a direct impact to strengthen and improve the lives of the local community in the Bwindi area.

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.
