In Uganda, Gorilla trekking is done south western Uganda in the area known as Bwindi Impenetrable National park and we trekked the Buhoma Gorilla Family Side and it was near and very ease for our Gorilla Trekking.in Rwanda we did Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park and even the Golden Monkey Trekking. Rwanda is ranked among the best area for Gorilla trekking in Virunga Regions and this Abdul was very knowledgeable about Rwanda Routes and he even knew Swahili language with is among the best language to be used in Rwanda.
Uganda, the southern edge of which is 9 o’clock to 1:30 o’clock of Lake Victoria, has a top world class tour company: active African vacations along the Entebbe Road Kampala.
The 2 week vacation Safari (14 Days Uganda & Rwanda Gorilla Safari) of my wife and me with Jimmy a Tour Guide of Active African Vacations was the high point of our world travels. My wife and I have been fortunate to travel most of the world during the last twenty two years. Indubitably, our vacation with Abdul to Uganda & Rwanda was the best experience that we have had. I specifically use the preposition “with” rather than “by.” The four of us felt that we were on an enchanted vacation together, given their vivacious personalities, comradeship, and hospitality.
Visits with the solar eclipse, the people, the tribes, the family home, an orphanage, and the animals were superbly coordinated by Active African Vacations. The Bwindi impenetrable forest Gorilla trek, the chimpanzee rain forest trek, and even an adventure playing with the chimpanzees were very well done.
Safari Overview for the 14 Days Uganda Rwanda Safari After the solar Eclipses in Northern Uganda (Murchison Falls National park) we went to Kibale, Queen and later Bwindi and later crossed to Rwanda side volcanoes National Park for Gorilla trekking and Golden Monkey Watching, we went to Nyungwe national park and later transferred to Akagera National park and had Kigali City tour but after crossed Back to Uganda and had rest at Bunyonyi Overland and relaxed very well. Abdul was very help full and the next day we went to Lake Mburo National park on the drive back to Kampala and arrived in Kampala and we went to Ngamba Island
A representative example, out of many possible, is the exquisite planning and coordination of Active African Vacations to obtain a tourists’ goal: The total solar eclipse of Uganda, lasting less than one minute, was scheduled by the Heavens to occur in a very small remote area of northern Uganda. The front page of the daily newspaper headlined that the President of Uganda would be there, and seventy astronomers had flown in from London for this rare world experience. Sam obtained a very-sought-after superb hotel very near the eclipse to stay the night before. Early the next afternoon, Abdul drove the four of us to the remote site. Thirty-thousand people swarmed into and packed this rural place, but Abdul found a perfect parking place to attend and eventually rapidly depart and later I saw another car having the same tyrecover reading active African vacations which gave me confidence that the company been operating . Abdul directed us to a noble spot, awaiting the eclipse. When the total solar eclipse occurred, we had a 100% perfect viewing experience. Absolutely amazing! Not having Abdul pick the place and this proved to me that Abdul had been guiding for long time as he had told me for about 20 Years but he has been working for active African vacations for the last 5 Years, the seventy astronomers from London having paid much more that we did and who were about one mile away, saw only a disappointing cloud-covered eclipse. Alert to the traffic jam leaving, Abdul darted in behind the President’s motorcade, and we crossed the river just in time. After the Murchison Falls Watch and we began to have the great safari holiday and we relaxed at the lodge and the next day we went for the game drive and later we drive to Kibale and did chimps trek and nature walk with dinner and overnight at Kibale Primate Lodge and later we crossed to Queen Elizabeth National park for the same game drives as we search for the tree climbing lions and other wildlife animals and Boat cruises at the channel that joins lake Edward and Lake George in south western Uganda Incredible! From Queen Elizabeth National park we went to Bwindi for the Gorilla Trekking and after crossed to Rwanda volcanoes National park for the second Gorilla trekking and Golden Monkey Trekking and this was wonderful and it was a great experience to trek the Gorillas twice in Africa Virunga Region.
Rwanda is not as ease like Uganda but Abdul was very keen at Making us Feel ease at Safari to Rwanda, Again we get to Nyungwe National Park for Canopy walk which is only found in Rwanda. We went to Akagera national park and returned to Kigali and visited the genocide memorials in Rwanda and later crossed back to Kabale with relaxation at lake Bunyonyi with a boat ride and the safari went on as we also visited Lake Mburo and Ngamba Island on Lake Victoria.
we truly enjoyed the 14 Days Uganda Rwanda Double Gorilla trekking Safari holiday for the last year 2013 and we recommend Active African Vacations which company is based in Uganda Kampala but offering Gorilla Safaris even to Rwanda.
