Spend seven days exploring the exotic wildlife, fascinating culture, and stunning beauty of Uganda, a country that was once deemed “The Pearl of Africa” because of its beauty and wildlife.
For experienced wildlife-viewing enthusiasts, Volcanoes Safaris offers this journey that includes gorilla tracking in Bwindi’s Impenetrable Forest, chimpanzee tracking in Kibale Forest, and close encounters with Uganda’s amazing birdlife.
Photography enthusiasts will have incredible photo opportunities as they experience heart-pumping close encounters with silverback gorillas, swinging baby chimps, and the birds of Uganda (a country that boasts more species of bird than any other African country).
Other highlights of the tour include classic safari game drives through stunning Queen Elizabeth National Park, including views of the tree-climbing lions of Ishasha, elephants, warthogs, and more, and nature walks through the Rwenzori Mountains and Bwindi.
Travelers will top off the experience with accommodation at Volcanoes Safaris own Bwindi Ecolodge and be in a position to come face to face with the overwhelming friendliness and hospitality of the people of Uganda. Departure dates are year-round. Prices start at $4245 (single supplement $605). Private departures are also available. Visit www.volcanoessafaris.com for more info.
Many people have likely seen animals at theme parks, the zoo, or the circus, but until you see them in the open range or hear their screams, grunts, and growls outside your tent at night will you get the real feel of their power and presence.
If you can’t make it to Southern Africa to go on safari, you can take a great armchair adventure through YourNovel.com’s African Safari: Wild Life, Wild Love, a personalized adventure-romance novel set in Zambia. That’s right, it’s personalized: you and your love are the main characters in the book. We wrote it based on our luxury tent safari there, and you will really get a feel of what it’s like to go on safari by being in the book.
