Volcanoes Safaris Update on Ebola in West Africa 4 August 2014

In recent days there have been reports of the outbreak of Ebola in the West African Countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The governments of the countries, the World Health Organisation, the Centres for Disease Control and the US government are taking a series of actions to tackle the disease. The areas affected are some three thousand miles from Uganda and Rwanda. No cases of Ebola have currently been reported in Uganda, Rwanda or other East African countries. 

Travel to Uganda and Rwanda is proceeding normally and guests are proceeding with their safaris as planned to all areas. 

Volcanoes Safaris is monitoring the situation. We will inform guests/agents of any developments.

Please get in touch with your sales consultant if you have any queries.

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.
