  • The Kyambura Gorge is a gorge a hundred meters deep where the river of the same name flows to flow into the Kazinga Canal. The main purpose of the visit is the encounter with chimpanzees but there is no shortage of other animals, colobo, hippos and various birds. After a walk of a couple of hours we heard their cries first and then we saw them, at first far away, among the fronds of the trees, then close together; a couple of young males have improvised a show for us; or maybe we were the show? it was really exciting. The trek is not particularly heavy, the ranger who accompanied us was very professional and prodigal of explanations.
