Tour Overview

No longer a country plagued by civil war and unrest, Uganda has recently come to enjoy a period of relative political, economic and social stability. Today, it is a land visited for its incredible natural environment as opposed to being avoided for its man-made one. In Kibale Forest National Park, we try to spot and identify some of the 12 species of primates that inhabit the area and when we enter Queen Elizabeth National Park, we can marvel at sterling views of the famous 'Mountains of the Moon' as we make our way through a diverse range of ecosystems. Our expedition to catch sight of mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is continued on as we cross into Rwanda, where we visit the Parc National des Volcans, where the late Dian Fossey undertook her monumental conservation efforts. Worthy of a stay of at least a couple of days in duration, Parc National des Volcans allows us to track one of five families of gorillas in their natural habitats -- truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. Heading into Kenya, we explore the savannah plains of Ol Pejeta Conservancy, keeping our eyes peeled for buffalo, cheetah, leopard and lion and embark on a game drive with almost guaranteed close-up contact with elephant, giraffe and gazelle.
