Primates and Parrots in Uganda and Rwanda
Queen Elizabeth and Volcanoes National Parks, Murchison Falls, Kibale, and Bwindi
Join an expert naturalist guide on the most complete Rwanda and Uganda nature trip available. This is a very special opportunity for birding, photography, and gorilla viewing.
A tiny, landlocked republic in Equatorial Africa, Rwanda lies on the eastern rim of the Albertine Rift and the watershed between Africa’s two largest river systems: the Nile and the Congo. Often called the "land of a thousand hills," Rwanda is a mountainous country with a moist, temperate year-round climate. Rwanda and Uganda are "must visit" destinations for viewing the last-remaining Mountain Gorillas in the world. Rwanda has made great progress in healing since the genocide of 1991. The country is safe, welcoming and surprisingly prosperous and free of corruption. Roads are good and the gorilla viewing, while expensive, is very well-managed. The best times to travel to Rwanda are December to March and May to September. Gorilla viewing permits must be reserved far in advance.
