Day 3: Chimp Tracking in Kyambura Gorge
After breakfast, go for Chimp tracking in Kyambura Gorge. The Kyambura Gorge experience is more than discovering chimpanzees in their natural environment: it teaches visitors about the ecosystems of Kyambura Gorge’s atmospheric “underground” rainforest, including vegetation types; bird identification and behavior; and chimp and monkey ecology. The Kyambura River flows through this thick “underground forest”, 100 meters below the Kichwamba Escarpment.
The gorge is best known for its resident chimpanzees. While walking through the gorge, you may spot other primates and some of the many birds found in the forest.

After lunch, you will go for a Community walk in the villages along Kichwamba Escarpment. The Walk gives you a great opportunity to see how the people live. It is also a great way to support the local community directly. The Walk is very informative and rewarding to the discerning visitor.
