Volcanoes Safaris have been pioneers of gorilla and chimpanzee eco-tourism in Uganda and Rwanda since 1997.
We have had a clear vision during our 25-year journey: to develop lodges that are sensitive to local culture and aesthetics, connect to local communities and conservation of great ape species and seek to use resources responsibly.
Our community and conservation projects create a long-term sustainable income for local people, enriching their livelihoods and protecting the surrounding wildlife habitats.
Thank you for your continued support.
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.
