Volcanoes Safaris in The Sunday Times

Gahinga Batwa Village
We are happy to see our founder Praveen Moman featured in The Sunday Times on “holidays that make a difference.”
“In 2000 he created Volcanoes Safaris, the first international tourist company to take visitors to Rwanda. Since then he has built four characterful eco- lodges around the Virunga mountain range in Rwanda and Uganda, kick-starting gorilla tourism and creating hundreds of jobs. He has become one of the world’s experts on gorilla conservation and community development, and is part of a UN project to save great apes and a trans-frontier rust to preserve forests in central Africa. “ - Lisa Grainger

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.
