Everything we do is tailor-made; our itineraries are just suggestions to give you an idea of what is possible. Please contact us so we can tailor the perfect holiday exclusively for you.

Neighbouring countries Uganda and Rwanda share access to the dramatic Virunga Volcano range and between them are home to the majority of the mountain gorillas in the world. For many, the close proximity makes it a no-brainer to combine a trip to both, with tracking available in both countries. It is possible to add an extension to Rwanda to any of our itineraries, please let us know if you would like to consider this. In addition to the many highlights of Uganda, a visit to Rwanda ups the chances of seeing rare golden monkeys, gives more tracking opportunities and a chance to learn more about the recent history of the country.

1 night Entebbe – 2 nights Kibale – 3 nights Queen Elizabeth NP – 3 nights Bwindi – 2 nights Rwanda
