Uganda was called by Winston Churchill, “the pearl of Africa” for its variety of wildlife and stunning scenery. It is also the source of the River Nile flowing all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. Uganda is best known for its Mountain Gorillas in the Bwindi Forest. Here habituated families of gorillas can be tracked with permits, spending no more than an hour in their presence, always maintaining a safe distance to prevent the transfer of disease from us to them.
Rwanda has been rebuilt since the terrible days of its genocide. It is now an alternative destination for Mountain Gorillas.
