Volcanoes Safaris update on report of unrest in the DRC 17 July 2013
There have been reports of Congolese refugees entering Uganda after recent unrest in the town of Kamango in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
The refugees are currently being cared for by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and other organisations.
We are continuing to monitor the situation on a regular basis and will inform clients/agents of any developments. Travel to all areas of Uganda is proceeding normally. The refugees are in the border area and far from tourist areas.
We look forward to welcoming guests on safari to Uganda. Please get in touch with your sales consultant if you have any queries.
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.
