Volcanoes Safaris celebrated its 15th Anniversary in style at an event in Kampala on 7th September. It also marked its work as pioneers in great ape tourism and as a leader in the safari and adventure travel world.
Vanessa Townsend, Sales and Marketing Manager for Volcanoes, described it not only as a celebration of Volcanoes but as a celebration of tourism in Uganda.
Praveen Moman, Co-Founder, paid tribute to the Volcanoes staff for their hard work and contribution over the last fifteen years, especially Yusuf Mulima Mubiru, the Co-Founder who retired earlier this year, the guides, the lodge staff and staff in our offices around the world.
"They have been outstanding in their contribution, innovation and commitment."
“Today we celebrate the close and warm relationships we have developed the many travellers, travel companies that have supported us in Uganda and around the world, the commitment of our staff, our partnerships with communities and of course the people of Uganda and Rwanda. Over the next fifteen years we will continue to build VS as one of the world’s leading adventure brands.”
To commemorate this milestone year:
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.
