Community Initiatives – Kabira Gorilla Safaris Company

At the Kabira Gorilla Safaris, we love and support community and conservation initiatives that have a real and lasting impact on the lives of the local people and wildlife in Uganda and Rwanda.

Your gorilla trekking trip to Uganda and Rwanda will take on a new dimension if you visit these encouraging and uplifting projects, which will allow you to observe and learn about daily life in these communities.

Gorilla Doctors

By treating sick and hurt Mountain and Grauer’s Gorillas residing in the national parks of Uganda, Rwanda, and the Republic of Congo, Gorilla Doctors are committed to gorilla conservation. The group also aids in the rescue and care of poacher orphans.

The health and wellness of each gorilla is essential to the survival of the species because there are currently just 1,004 mountain gorillas and an ever-dwindling number of Grauer’s gorillas left in the globe. Gorilla doctors are essential in keeping these gorgeous animals from going extinct.

Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund

In order to research and preserve mountain gorillas, Dian Fossey established the Karisoke Research Center in the Virunga mountains of Rwanda in 1967. Her work has been carried on by the Karisoke Research Center, which has also created other conservation initiatives for nearby populations and other species of animals.

Gorilla groups are assigned to Fossey Fund trackers, who conduct daily tracking operations throughout the National Parks. They are in charge of documenting the gorillas’ behavior, general health, and welfare as well as any alterations to the group’s demographics, including deaths, births, immigration, and emigration.

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary

By visiting these semi-wild chimps, you are helping to support this worthy cause, as a proportion of the fees goes directly to the project. Enjoy a guided chimpanzee tour of the sanctuary and observe the chimpanzees as they come into camp for their morning or afternoon feeding. ‘Get your hands dirty’ by being part of the feeding team.
