Discover Uganda & Rwanda

These two land locked East African countries provide two of the few remaining natural habitats of the endangers African gorilla. Tracking these beautiful, intelligent primates is one of the continent’s most spell binding and memorable experiences.

But, as well as gorilla trekking, Uganda and Rwanda offer a truly engaging African culture, stunning mountain and jungle scenery and plenty of other game viewing opportunities.

Uganda with its misty rainforests, snow peaked mountains, impressive lakes and open savannah was described by Winston Churchill as the ‘Pearl of Africa’. In the far south west of the country, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a realm of dense jungle covered peaks reaching up to 8500 feet and home to nearly half of Africa’s remaining mountain gorilla population. Few experiences can rival being close to and observing a mighty silverback in its natural habitat.

Away from Bwindi, some of Uganda’s other parks are well worth a visit, including Murchison Falls where the White Nile crashes through a narrow gorge to plunge 140 feet.

Kibale Forest is regarded as one of the best places on the continent to track wild chimpanzees, whilst Queen Elizabeth National Park’s wide range of habitats are home to plains animals, hippo, leopard and lion.

Rwanda is Uganda’s smaller southern neighbour and is known as ‘the Land of a Thousand Hills’ because of its conical mountain scenery. Just two hours’ drive from the capital, Kigali, Volcanoes National Park is one of the few other remaining refuges for the Mountain Gorilla. The area was brought to prominence by Dian Fossey who dedicated many years studying these fascinating primates before writing ‘Gorillas in the Mist’.
