"Summertime is always the best of what might be"… Or so said Charles Bowden!
Volcanoes Safaris offers the premier great ape wildlife safari in Uganda and Rwanda. Whether you're looking for a luxury break or an African adventure, our collection of lodges and safaris will ensure that your experience is entirely unforgettable.
Come face-to-face with the endangered mountain gorillas, descend into the otherworldly forests to track the elusive chimpanzee, look for the rare tree-climbing lion often found lounging in the sun in a spectacular fig tree, or visit the local villages and interact with the local communities to see their lives first-hand.
So...Who says summer has to end?
Low season rates are valid from 15th October to 15th December. Terms and conditions apply.
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.
