Volcanoes Safaris

Volcanoes Safaris

At Volcanoes Safaris we specialise in mountain gorilla and chimpanzee safaris to Uganda and Rwanda

As award winning pioneers in ecotourism we ensure our safaris respect the culture of local communities, the fragility of the environment and the need to use resources in a sustainable way.  Over the past fourteen years we have been at the forefront of mountain gorilla tourism and are the only safari company to have signed the UN Kinshasa Declaration on Great Apes.

A journey with Volcanoes Safaris takes you on an unforgettable voyage into the misty forests of Africa and gives you a privileged insight into the fascinating world of the great apes.  Led by our outstanding guides, you will stay at our unique and intimate eco-lodges near the gorilla and chimpanzee forests.  Your journey will be an amazing experience thanks to the unrivalled expertise of the No.1 Gorilla Safari Company, Volcanoes Safaris.

Charities we are proud to support:
VSPT - Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust VSPT - Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust

The Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust (VSPT) is a non-profit organisation that undertakes specific community and conservation activities in and around the Volcanoes Safaris Lodges. The VSPT seeks to support specific activities that enhance the livelihood of local communities and that in turn support the survival of the great apes. The objectives of the VSPT are achieved through regular donations from Volcanoes Safaris Ltd, who contribute a voluntary donation of $100 from every full-cost safari purchased. This money is used to implement and support projects that focus on the communities around VS lodges and conservation of vulnerable habitats and endangered species.
