Uganda and Rwanda
A gorilla trek is considered one of the most incredible, emotional, and memorable wildlife experiences in the world. Exceptional, intimate opportunities to see mountain gorillas are found in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. Once located, you will have an hour to spend with these incredible primates in close proximity. Our intellectual curiosity is equally reciprocated by our wild cousins who share nearly 98% of their DNA with us.
Gorillas are not just the only attraction in Uganda or Rwanda. Our other incredible wild cousin, the chimpanzee, can be found during treks in the beautiful forests of Uganda’s Kibale National Park and Rwanda’s Nyungwe National Park. Red-tailed monkeys, blue monkeys, black and white colobus moneys, golden monkeys, and l’Hoest’s monkeys are some of the other unique and fascinating primates one can see during a safari to either country.
Uganda (The Pearl of Africa) and Rwanda have also greatly improved their other natural areas for those looking for the “traditional” safari animals and experience. Uganda’s Queen Elizabeth National Park and Rwanda’s Akagera National Park are just two great examples.
