Africa tours to consider for this 2022 summer and every season beyond gorilla trekking

You must have read about the “wildlife giants”- the mountain gorillas in the great lakes’ region of Africa, and long for a face-to-face meeting with the great apes in the jungle, there is much more beyond the gorilla trekking Rwanda vs Uganda experience. 

East Africa is certainly an abundant destination of pure wildlife and cultural riches, attracting visitors of all ages in quest of life-changing travel experiences and long-lasting memories.

Watching a gentle gorilla family (adults and babies) in the jungle, the hour you spend with the gorillas is such an amazing and fabulous encounter one cannot do justice to describing. Mother and infant and males and females eating and grooming each other as if no one is watching is priceless.

But you can’t walk about from these creatures- you need to see them. This is the perfect time to catch a glimpse of these cute creatures in their natural habit in Uganda’s Bwindi National Park or Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park.  There are approximately 1000 gorilla individuals spread in the mountains of Rwanda, Uganda, and DR Congo.
