For good reason, Uganda is known as one of the top sites in the world…
Gorilla trekking and Serengeti
Those looking for truly implausible game spotting ventures (and willing to push the boat out), a travel plan merging the Serengeti National Park and gorilla trekking in Rwanda would be the perfect prime. As adjoining countries, and Coastal Aviation delivering straight hired (chartered) airlifts/flights between Kigali and the Serengeti, it has never been easier to merge the complementary, peculiar places.
The game-occupied plains of the Serengeti National Park are wandered by millions of wildebeest, zebra,lions,elephants,cheetahs, to mention but a few, while being trailed by some of the continent’s violent slayers/hunters. Whether you are merging the northern parks of Tanzania (the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Park), or merely heading to the Serengeti, an implausible fix of wildlife is certainly on the cards.
A small hired Airlift/ flight from the Serengeti into Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, will bring you onto your next quest. The gentle giants /gorillas habituated in the Volcanoes National Park are part of a worldwide populace of the only 800 gentle giants outstanding, and being able to trek and spot them in their natural homes may be once-in-a-lifetime chance.
Although half of the gorilla family groups are kept un toured by trekkers (merely for research reasons), the other 10 gorilla families residing in the Volcanoes National Park have slowly, over the years, become abiding to human presence. This acceptance has allowed trekkers, from across the world, to encounter and interrelate with these impressive primates for a short period every day.
Although unforgettable encounter, merging the 2 places is, unfortunately, not a budget travel plan/ itinerary. In May 2017, the Rwandan Development Board proclaimed an instant increase in the cost of gorilla permits and as a result, were creased overnight from $750 to $1500 per person per trek. Although it may seem very luxurious, procuring a gorilla permit directly helps to reserve/account conservation work and constant security/defense for the critically endangered gentle giants (mountain Gorillas).
Rwanda is questionably one of the better places to track the mountain gorillas (the others being Uganda and DRC). This is for a number of reasons, involving the affected backdrops of the Virunga Volcano cable form, the compliment and more available terrain (that can present a shorter and easier hike), and its availability to other tour and beach places such as Tanzania, Kenya and Zanzibar.
Belongings in the Volcanoes National Park, apart from gorilla trekking, present various activities to their visitors. These involve climbing Karisimbi and Visoke volcanoes, touring the lakes in the park, trekking to spot the prevalent golden monkeys, and getting involved in cultural encounters such as watching traditional dance performers and touring local primary schools and communities. These approve the time spent in the Serengeti, as game spotting activities are mostly limited to being vehicle-based.
