In recent days there have been reports of Marburg fever in the Kabale District of Uganda. The situation is being handled by the Ugandan Ministry of Health in collaboration with their partners through the emergency preparedness team. Guests are proceeding with their safaris as normal to all areas of the country and the parks and there is no change to the guests' itineraries.
Volcanoes Safaris is in close contact with the authorities and is monitoring the situation. We will inform guests/agents of any developments. Please get in touch with your sales consultant if you have any queries.
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.
