We are pleased to announce that the VSPT have agreed to sponsor and conduct roofing at Mwiko School near our Virunga Lodge!
The Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust (VSPT) is a non-profit organisation that carries out community and conservation work around each of the four eco-luxury Volcanoes Safaris lodges.
Around our Virunga Lodge in Rwanda, we support a troupe of Intore Dancers as well as Mwiko School. The VSPT has supported Mwiko School for years now and is delighted to continue the relationship that it has built with the school with the work that will be carried out on a total of eight classrooms.
Each of the VSPT projects can be visited by guests when on safari with Volcanoes at no additional cost and at times you can even try your hand at some of the activities!
Contact us for more information on the VSPT activities that you can experience on safari with us.
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.
