Planning a safari & Gorilla trekking combo -Combine Uganda-Rwanda wildlife tour with mountain gorilla trekking in Bwindi
Planning a safari & gorilla trekking combo – Combined safari and Gorilla tracking in Uganda and Rwanda are one of the great wildlife adventures on the planet. The star attraction is the highly endangered Mountain Gorilla experience. An encounter with a silver-back Gorilla can be a hair-raising experience of a life time which you will never forget.
The welcoming local people, lush landscapes and other wildlife attractions make your planned safari and Gorilla tracking combo an ideal addition to any African safari.
Planning a safari & gorilla trekking combo – Set off on a journey into the lush hills of Uganda and Rwanda to encounter Chimpanzees and the Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat. Observe the Chimpanzees with a primatologist in Kibale Forest National Park of Uganda or Nyungwe Forest National Park of Rwanda, and track the Mountain Gorillas in the forests of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks of Uganda and Volcanoes National Park of Rwanda.
In contrast to Kenya and Tanzania, Uganda is a compact, rich, and fertile country which can offer both the savannah plains of Queen Elizabeth National Park as well as the Impenetrable Forest of Bwindi National Park.
Uganda offers something entirely different from its neighboring countries in East Africa with many travelers deciding to visit Uganda only after having enjoyed a traditional safari in Kenya or Tanzania. Tourism is relatively new, and does not have the extensive infrastructure of the aforementioned countries, but what Uganda does offer is authenticity, fewer crowds and a lot more variety than one would expect in its own individual way.
Due to the limited infrastructure Uganda is still a relatively an affordable destination, and we can blend the right accommodation and activities to design the perfect itinerary for you. Find out when the best time to go for your planned safari and Gorilla tracking and the differences between the months to help you plan your trip accordingly.
Why choose Uganda for a holiday?
Uganda gives you the opportunity to combine some of the best parts of African safaris, and in our opinion is a totally underrated destination that deserves more attention.
The accommodation in Uganda ranges in quality, but we never make compromises on location. See some of the most incredible vistas in the whole of Africa from your private balcony.
Tourism is relatively new in Uganda and accommodation range is more limited than some other African destinations, with many of the lodges being located near the National Parks to offer close proximity and ease of access to wildlife.
Many of the camps and lodges afford incredible views over Uganda’s cloud forest or are situated in the heart of the national parks. We also offer mobile tented camping safaris and can select the ideal accommodation to perfectly suit your itinerary. With most people who visit Uganda tracking the endangered Mountain Gorillas at some point in their itinerary, we have some accommodation options with fantastic access to the trails.
Uganda’s location makes it perfect for combining with lots of other African destinations, including Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania. And you can add some beach on too. The experiences in Uganda can be enjoyed in a variety of safari styles depending on how you prefer to travel and more specifically, your time and budget.
