Uganda

7 Days Uganda Absolute Gorilla Adventure

7 Days Uganda Absolute Gorilla Adventure

Go gorilla trekking in Bwindi national park of Uganda and volcanoes national park of Rwanda. Gorilla tracking is indeed the most wonderful wildlife experience in the African bush; search for gorillas in the thick forest/ slippery mountain slopes to get close to these gentle and giant animals. It is very wonderful when you finally close in and watch gorillas go about their life feeding and the acrobatic young seemlessly swing between tree branches! To the size of a mature gorilla, one would expect Gorillas to be violent animals but they are not. This wrong belief was changed by findings of dian fossey a famous gorilla girl who spent years researching about mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda. You may also visit the dian fossey tombs on this tour.

  • Drive to Manyara National Park

    After breakfast we leave Arusha and drive to Manyara National Park. The road winds through luxurious jungle where groups of a hundred or more baboons can be found along the road. Blue monkeys climb in the acacia tress and the bushbuck antelope gentle grazing in the shade of the forest. In the meantime the impressive silvery-cheeked hornbills have a cacophonic concert in canopy! We stop for a picnic lunch under the Umbrella Thorn before continuing our game drive. This small park has herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and giraffe. It is famous of it's lions who lounge in the Umbrella Thorn (not the one we have our picnic under though!). At the end of the day we drive to our accommodation for the next 2 nights, on the green, lush outskirts of the small village of Karatu.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
