The tour Culture & Wildlife Of Uganda & Rwanda starts in Kampala and ends in Kigali. This is an explorer tour that takes 8 days taking you through Kampala, Kibale Forest National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Kigali in Rwanda and Uganda. This is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

There’s a wealth of adventure to be had in both Uganda and Rwanda, especially now that tourists are beginning to rediscover this region. We keep this trip small and intimate to create a deep connection with this captivating land. Of course, there’ll be trekking to spot chimps and gorillas, and wildlife drives through Queen Elizabeth National Park to see elephants and hippos, but we’ll also visit the genocide museum for a closer look at the recent history of the region. Trust us: Uganda and Rwanda will stay in your memory for a very long time.

Gideon's review for another G Adventures tour
“Well run from start to finish. The upfront planning was simple. The instructions for what to bring and expect were correct and informative. But the best part was the CEO. He knew his area, he was friendly, informative, encouraging and incredibly help...”

Can's review for another G Adventures tour
“The whole thing has been made excellent by the staff, the CEO, and the assistant guides. Prasan is a true leader with his selection of the assistant guides, training and supporting them, tight management when needed (e.g. the delay in flights), answering questions and setting our expectations... And with his short lessons he gave at nights to the group on Nepalese and Himalayan cultures, geography, history, etc... he is an asset not only to G Adventures but Nepalese tourism industry, too.”
