Our Safari Destinations
Scenery in Rwanda & Uganda’s safari destinations is jaw dropping from lush, green forests, to snow-capped mountains, crater lakes and savannah grasslands but the real draw card is the wildlife – the star of the show being the primates.
Whilst the term ‘adventure of a lifetime’ is often a cliché, it is certainly true when tracking critically endangered mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest & Parc National Des Volcans. Meeting these gentle creatures eye to eye is an emotional experience, one never forgotten.
Rwanda & Uganda are often unfairly overlooked as safari destinations. Tree-climbing lions, massive pods of hippos, elephant herds and some of the richest birding in Africa are all within an easy distance of the primates. Uganda is one of the few places to see the threatened, pre-historic shoebill stork and its 10 foot wing span!
Whether you are climbing the Mountains of the Moon, white water rafting on the River Nile or tracking gorillas, a safari to Rwanda or Uganda is an adventure holiday or honeymoon that also supplies plenty of depth and meaning.
But what makes us so passionate about safari holidays to Uganda & Rwanda is the ‘Bantu’ people. Utterly charming and genuinely warm, you will leave these safari destinations with a heavy heart and a plan for your next trip!
Uganda & Rwanda are worthy of anyone’s bucket list. Tick it off and experience something new by contacting one of our safari destination specialists today.
