Green Africa – True African Wilderness – Murchison Falls N.P Uganda
There are various ways of spending holidays; one may opt to take a trip to the countryside with his family and the other may take a tour at an exquisite resort or beach with his/her lover. The latter are the most common ways of spending holidays. There are other options of spending holidays but they are unfamiliar to some people.
Recently, traveling to Africa has become one of the most popular ways of spending holidays to most people in the world, and many African countries receive thousands of tourists every year. A holiday in Africa has never disappointed anyone who has encountered it and in fact it is the best way of spending holidays. This is because Africa has got lots of attractions one has never seen before, attractions which are still fresh and new to the entire world.
Beautiful Sandy Beaches and Blue waters – Zanzibar
Africa is naturally gifted with flora and fauna due to the fact that it is bisected by the equator which makes it have only sun and rain throughout the year as its climate and also the green vegetation cover of tropical forests and savannah grasslands that are the best homes for the wildlife. Nature lovers have made Africa a place to be on their vacations.
For the case of wildlife, we shall look at the eastern part of Africa where Uganda and Rwanda are found. These two countries are small countries and landlocked in other words they are countries without a coastline. In spite of being small countries they are naturally endowed with wildlife and have rich cultures of people.
These two countries are one of the three countries that have mountain gorilla and the other is The Democratic Republic of Congo in central Africa. Mountain gorillas are one of the most visited animals in the world due to the fact that these animals have unique characters and relatively smart in such way that they are more or less the same as humans in the way they behave socially. The only way to meet these animals is taking a gorilla safari in Rwanda and / or Uganda. There are affordable packages placed for every category of visitors be it luxurious, mid-range or budget all can have a gorilla safari experience.
There also other wildlife found in these countries like African elephants, lions, giraffes, buffaloes, leopard, bush babies, zebras, rhinos. Hippos, waterbucks and primates like monkeys, baboons, bushbucks and chimpanzees among others. Those exotic animals are encountered in Murchison Falls national park, Queen Elizabeth national park, Kidepo national park and these are found in Uganda and in Rwanda, there is Akagera national park and Nyungwe forest national park. The mentioned ones are the most notable national parks but there other national parks and game reserves in Uganda and Rwanda.
Wildlife safaris in Uganda and Rwanda make one have an educative and adventurous lifetime experience in Africa as one discovers new animals and nature at large he/she has never seen before.
Still in Eastern Africa, Kenya and Tanzania are also endowed with much wildlife that will leave you amazed with life time experience. The 2 countries have one of the world’s wonders; the wildebeest migration that takes place annually where animals cross between Serengeti national park in Tanzania and Masaimara national park in Kenya. This attracts many tourists in the whole world. There are so many other national parks in the 2 destinations where you can spot the African Big 5 animals (Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo and Elephant) and primates like Chimpanzees.
The Great Wildebeests Migration in Kenya and Tanzania
Further more, the 2 destinations not only have huge wildlife, but also have beautiful sandy beaches because they have access to the coast line of Indian Ocean. As if that is not enough, there are beautiful islands such as Zanzibar, Mafia, etc that are perfect honey moon holidays and family vacations.
Endangered Mountain Gorillas – Bwindi National Park Uganda
From the above, one can design a perfect safari within Eastern Africa, combining wildlife viewing, gorilla tracking, chimps and other primates tours, white water rafting and cultural tours among others. For instance, one can spend 2 weeks in Kenya and Tanzania for huge wildlife viewing and beach holidays, 3 days / 2 nights in Rwanda for gorilla tracking and a week in Uganda for gorillas and wildlife viewing. However, if you have limited time or budget, you can just add a 3 day gorilla trekking tour in Uganda and Rwanda to complete your African safari because, most travelers believe that, an African safari is incomplete without gorilla tracking. In other words, gorilla tracking is a must do when you visit Africa.
Adventurous travelers enjoy tracking the gorillas more than once in Uganda or Rwanda, for instance, there is a 5 day mountain gorilla tour package with 3 gorilla treks in Volcanoes National Park. You can contact us for tailor made itinerary that best suits your holiday interests, time and budget, for instance, if you want to combine Uganda and Rwanda gorilla trekking experience, we are readily available for you.
