Rwanda & Uganda
Home of the Gorillas
Rwanda & UgandaMost of our clients describe trekking to the critically endangered Mountain Gorillas as ‘a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience’ and we completely agree. They can be found in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park and certain areas of Uganda (Mgahinga NP and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest), and a trek to find these formidable primates should feature on everyone's bucket list!
The natural beauty of Rwanda is everywhere – known as the ‘Switzerland of Africa’ due to its breathtaking mountainous landscapes – there’s an abundance of lakes and dormant volcanoes. Further to this, its complex history cannot be overlooked and it is the Rwandese people our guests meet which often – in addition to the gorillas! – make it an incredible destination. Easy to combine with Kenya and Tanzania, making it an ideal destination for unforgettable experiences.
Unimaginably beautiful and verdant, Uganda is full of mountains, villages, stunning rainforests, tea plantations and beautiful crater lakes. Watch local fishermen at work, explore the Nile Delta or visit Murchison Falls NP. Uganda has much to offer and deserves time to explore, albeit slightly more ‘adventurous’ and recommended for more hardy-travellers.
