Uganda: the Pearl of Africa
Situated on the Equator, on the shores of Lake Victoria lies Uganda; one of the most ecologically diverse and fertile countries in Africa. Here you can trek the mighty mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, enjoy a safari by road or boat on the Kazinga Channel, raft down Grade 5 white water rapids at Jinja, or follow chimpanzees on foot in Kibale Forest and marvel at the vast array of birdlife and unforgettable scenery of Uganda’s remote forests and parks.
Uganda is also home to the tallest mountain range in Africa (Rwenzori), one of the world’s most powerful waterfalls (Murchison) and amongst the most friendly and welcoming people you might ever encounter with over 30 different indigenous languages. Gorilla Trekking combines perfectly with a safari in Tanzania and Kenya.

"The trip to Rwanda was awesome! The accommodations were great especially the Bwindi Lodge. The atmosphere there and the employees were so nice. the gorillas were unbelievable. I trekked with the help of the porters. They were definitely worth their weight in gold!
Tanzania was also a grand experience. I loved the Ilbouru Lodge...The food there was excellent and the gift shop quite reasonable. Willy, our fearless driver was so personable and caring. Loved him. He really knew his animals and went the extra mile to seek them out..."
"It was totally AMAZING! I thought the silverback was going to be the star of the show but there was a young, clumsy baby that was totally hilarious.
Ride 4 Woman is also a very special place, and I feel privileged to have stayed there. What a cool mission, and the staff there could not have done a better job taking care of us.
Thank you again for all your hard work!"

I did the Nyamirambo women’s centre guided walk and cooked lunch along with one of the ladies at her house and that was fascinating.
Magashi has a very special feel and fabulous guides that are professional with great ideas to suit my interests. I was very impressed."
“Every single transfer went like clock work. Even the Kazangula border crossing which involves leaving one guide, taking an unaccompanied boat ride and then meeting the guide the other side was all very seamless and straightforward.
