Africa / Rwanda & Uganda

Brooding rainforest and an unsurpassed abundance of primates make Rwanda and Uganda two prime destinations for those in search of a unique animal encounter that will stay forever etched in the memory.

Uganda offers an exceptional wildlife viewing experience, its flora and fauna being both extensive and diverse, with opportunities to see everything from the Big 5 on a traditional safari to huge concentrations of hippo during river cruises. In Queen Elizabeth National Park, see the famous tree climbing lions, whilst Kibale has forest elephants and Murchison National Park its dramatic waterfall. Chimpanzee can be widely viewed, along with over 1,000 species of birds. Perhaps the biggest draw is the endangered mountain gorillas which inhabit the high montane forests, with Uganda being home to half the world’s population of these precious animals.

Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda sits within the mountainous Virunga Massif, a visually stunning landscape encompassing six active and three extinct volcanoes – the dramatic peaks reaching towards 5,000m. The first National Park to be created in Africa, it rose to fame through the work of renowned primatologist Diane Fossey – the ancient rainforest is home to eight habituated family groups of gorilla with further opportunities to view golden monkey, elephant and bushbuck.
