The 5-Day safari starts and finishes in Entebbe. With Aerolink flights between Entebbe and Kisoro lasting only one hour, accessibility has never been easier.

Your journey will take you to the remote and enchanting Volcanoes’ Mount Gahinga Lodge in Uganda. Nestled in the foothills of the Virunga Volcanoes, it is an exclusive lodge that offers unparalleled quiet and respite from the outside world. Nights can be chilly at 2,300m, so warm yourself by the wood-burning fire in the main lodge or in your room. Staff will even slip a hot water bottle between the bed sheets in the evening!

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.
