Uganda and Rwanda – 6 Days

From: $6,241.00

Over 6 days and 5 nights this adventure takes in the bustle of Africa from the streets of the urban jungle to the footpaths of the rural forests.

Discover Kigali, with its lush hillsides, flowering trees, winding boulevards and bustling streets, is arguably one of the most attractive capital cities in Africa, as well as one of the cleanest and safest.
Rwanda’s Volcano National Park is known as being Africa’s first National Park and originally created to protect the Mountain Gorillas from poachers, considered to be the haven of this threatened species. Additionally, it is home to five of the eight Virunga mountains volcanoes boasting spectacular vistas and scenery.

Description

The experience is awe inspiring, tense and exhilarating. Book this safari today and experience the magic and beauty of these two African Countries.
