The trip "Culture & Wildlife Of Uganda & Rwanda" starts from Kampala and ends in Kigali. This is an explorer tour that takes 8 days taking you through Kampala, Kampala, Queen Elizabeth National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Rwanda and Uganda. This is a guided small group trip 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.

Kaiyuwang's review for another G Adventures tour
“Climbing Kilimanjaro was definite challenging especially the day u to the summit! But its worthy. When you saw the sunrise and iceberg just in front of you, which was amazing! The G adventure team is great; arranging everything pretty well and taking care of all the members. For the safari part, its for sure something must to do in Africa! Our driver is profesuonal not only tried to find the animals for us but also did the detailed explanation of the knowledge of animals ! The food was good... if I have to say something I dont like probably which was we almost camping through all the trip...but its the way it is I guess!”
