Tour Overview

The outstanding natural beauty and diversity of landscape in Uganda has long served as focal point of inspiration for travellers. Towering mountains give way to fertile meadows and broad savannah, while the dry uplands contrast with the swamplands of the lakeshores. We keep a lookout for Red Colobus monkeys and visit Uganda's most popular game reserve, Queen Elizabeth II National Park, where have the opportunity to take a boat ride amid Africa's largest hippo population. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, our last destination on the Uganda leg of our tour, is a designated World Heritage Park and is home to just over half the world's mountain gorilla population. Heading into Rwanda, we make route for Dian Fossey's stunning Parc National des Volcans, where we embark on a trek to encounter the mighty mountain gorilla and follow one of five gorilla families. This comfortable, fully-escorted and guided safari tour through Uganda and Rwanda features lands of rolling hills, tranquil lakes, the snow-capped 'Mountains of the Moon', rainforests and jungles, gorillas and chimps, and glorious butterflies outnumbered only by the plentiful birds.

"I would say that the "main event(s)" were more than we had ever dreamed of! The gorillas were wonderful, and the rain forests were beautiful. I would recommend this trip to anyone who loves seeing wild life, both flora and fauna, up close and personal.
