Track mountain gorillas and chimpanzees.
Rwanda is a highly populous and extremely scenic mountainous country, making for amazing Rwanda safaris. Most coming seeking to view the mountain gorillas in the Virunga Mountains area to the north of the country and an extended stay could include a visit to the chimpanzees of the Nyungwe area to the south.
Uganda is an absolute jewel of a country, much under-rated and relatively little-visited. Along the western side of the country the volcanic landscapes are simply awesome, with dramatic mountain peaks, lush tropical forests, flooded calderas, broad lakes, open savanna and verdant farmlands. Highlights include gorilla tracking in Bwindi Forest and chimpanzee tracking at Kibale Forest. Savanna landscapes at Queen Elizabeth, Murchison Falls and the incredibly remote Kidepo national parks provide more conventional safari environments. White-water rafting on the Nile below Jinja is amongst the finest in the world.
