Last month we had two couples from Sweden taking on the adventure of a tailor-made safari from Rwanda, via Uganda and on to Tanzania during 12 days. This safari in East Africa let them meet mountain gorillas in Rwanda, take a boat-cruise on Kazinga channel and go chimps trekking in Uganda and finally finishing off with Serengeti and Ngorongoro in Tanzania.
They landed in Rwanda’s capital Kigali, a modern city that surprises many visitors, and were met by their guide Ahmd. In Kigali they went to the genocide memorial center to learn about the countries tragic recent history with the genocide, before continuing on to Ruhengeri close to Volcanoes National Park. Next day it was the highlight of gorilla trekking, meeting the gentle giants. This is for many a dream coming true. Next on the itinerary was crossing the border in to Uganda and relaxing a bit by the beautiful Lake Bunyonyi. Here it is safe to take a swim, possible to go for a hike, a canoe ride or just relax taking in the stunning landscape.
The Uganda part of the safari in East Africa continued on with Queen Elizabeth national park for a game-drive to search for tree-climbing lions and a boat-cruise on Kazinga channel to look at an abundance of hippos and buffaloes. Last stop in Uganda was the crater lakes area with primates and Kibale forest for a chimpanzee trekking adventure.
The journey then went southwards with Serengetti national park in Tanzania as the next target for the safari in East Africa . On the great plains of Serengetti they went for game-drives exploring the area, seeing cheetahs, several packs of lions, hyenas as well as zebras and more. Last stop on the adventure was the magnificent natural wonder of Ngorongoro crater. Entering down the crater with a wealth of wildlife to see during the days game-drive. Flying out from Arusha the next day our visitors went home with lovely memories to look back at.
