We are thrilled to see two of Volcanoes Safaris’ lodges have been voted into the top 15 of the Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards for the top resorts in Central and East Africa.
This wonderful achievement is a testament to the dedication, passion, and hard work of our teams at both Kyambura Gorge Lodge and Virunga Lodge. But most importantly, it's a testament to the incredible experiences our guests have had while staying with us.
The Volcanoes team is excited to welcome you to our lodges and to share the rich culture, history, and hospitality traditions of the Great Lakes Region of Africa.
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.
