Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust has partnered with the world's first not-for-profit streaming platform Ecoflix to showcase community and conservation short films.
In a podcast interview to launch the partnership, Praveen Moman, Founder Volcanoes Safaris, shared his thoughts on ecotourism and great ape conservation in the Albertine Rift with David Casselman, Founder of Ecoflix.
Ecoflix is the first not-for-profit streaming channel to donate 100% of its membership fees into unique conservation and community projects.
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.
