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. We believe that ecotourism in these remote areas needs to respect the culture of local communities, their modest economic means and the fragility of the environment. Providing western standards of comfort needs to be balanced with the pressure local people face in obtaining food and clean water. In designing our eco-lodges, therefore, we ensure that water consumption is reduced and waste disposal controlled, and solar power is used instead of generators.
