While at Virunga Lodge, the World Bank team were served our popular "Taste of Rwanda" Platter, which samples some of Rwanda's most authentic dishes such as Inyama Yinka ikaranze hamwe ninyanya(beef stew), Akatogo Kibitoke (Banana stew) and Umuceri wabugarama (white rice). The team wrote back to let us know that lunch went extremely well and they enjoyed it very much.
Ms Sri Mulyani wrote in the visitors book; excellent and awesome view!
Thank you very much to the World Bank team - it was an absolute pleasure hosting you at our Virunga Lodge for lunch.
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.
