Thank you Travel Daily News for sharing the exciting update regarding the opening of our fifth lodge in Kibale, Uganda.
Looking ahead to 2023, to mark our 25th anniversary, we will start building a new fifth lodge at a site near Kibale National Park in Uganda. The area is home to about 1,500 chimpanzees, one of the largest communities of chimpanzees in Africa.
This expansion complements the existing circuit of lodges developed by Volcanoes Safaris to offer a seamless safari experience across Rwanda and Uganda, giving guests access to the countries’ most beloved parks for great ape trekking and wildlife tourism.

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.
