- Uganda & Rwanda
A Uganda/Rwanda gorilla safari
A Uganda or Rwanda safari is synonymous with gorilla trekking. Both countries offer safe and relatively easy access to Africa’s remaining mountain gorillas in their natural rainforest habitat. And with a 90% success rate of a gorilla encounter, a Uganda/Rwanda gorilla safari is highly rewarding.
Many itineraries are dedicated to gorilla trekking – ideal for a short visit – but others are part of a longer itinerary that includes safari destinations across East Africa.
Several of Uganda’s other wildlife destinations are worth including on an itinerary. There’s excellent chimpanzee tracking in the Kibale Forest and big game to see in the Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth national parks. And imagine an itinerary that combines a Uganda/Rwanda gorilla safari with the wildebeest migration of the Masai Mara or Serengeti. It’s also easy to add on a tropical beach holiday too, perhaps to Zanzibar or Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast.
