East Africa experienced in combination

Uganda and Rwanda are destinations usually experienced in combination with others. Thanks to a well-practiced network of air connections, you can blend gorilla trekking in Uganda and Rwanda with safaris in Kenya and Tanzania or head south for Botswana, the Kruger Park, Victoria Falls and Cape Town. We have a wide range of tours that combine the best destinations, appealing to all types of traveller from honeymooners to families.

Kenya

Direct flights from Nairobi to Kigali means you can be in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park the same day, ready to head out the following morning on a gorilla trek. Or fly to Uganda and explore its forests, lakes and savannahs before your gorilla trek. Combined with Kenya’s wildebeest migration, you’ve got nature at her most dramatic.

Tanzania

Gorilla trekking plus the Serengeti migration, Big 5 game viewing and a Zanzibar beach holiday – it’s all possible when you add Tanzania into your Uganda or Rwanda travel plans. It’s a highly recommended combination for wildlife photographers.

South Africa

Uganda and Rwanda’s gorilla trekking seasons coincide with the best times to visit South Africa’s top two destinations: the Kruger Park and Cape Town. Kruger’s game viewing is best between June and October; Cape Town lies under blue summer skies from December to February. Why not add ‘in-between’ Victoria Falls to the itinerary as you head north?
