GorillaWe have recently launched a new 10-day Uganda safari Gorillas, Chimpanzees, Volcanoes and Batwa culture which takes guests on mountain gorilla treks in both the Bwindi forest and the Virunga volcanoes, as well as hiking to find the lost chimpanzees of Kyambura Gorge and game drives to see the tree-climbing lions of Ishasha in Queen Elizabeth.

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.
