East Africa Safaris | Combined Gorillas & Wildlife tours to Rwanda and Uganda or/ and Congo
Uganda & Rwanda's most famous residents are the critically endangered mountain gorillas, of which half the world's surviving population lives in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the other half in the Virunga Mountain ranges in Congo and Rwanda's National Des Volcans. Aside from gorillas, chimps, and the Big Five, accessible and affordable Uganda is also the much-sought-after source of the Nile River, as mythical as ever – now for its whitewater rafting and kayaking.
Most people know Rwanda for all the wrong reasons: war, poverty, political instability, and tragedy. Few know how far it has come in a very short time. The new Rwanda is one of reconciliation, recovery, and renewal, much of it built from travellers eager to explore and understand. Home to a staggeringly beautiful landscape of grassy slopes and misty mountains that shield shy mountain gorillas from all but the most curious travellers, Rwanda is rewriting its troubled history one visa at a time. Come write a brighter future.
