These two East African destinations have had a meteoric tourism growth in the recent years despite their past. Rwanda with her 1959 ethnic revolution whose effects roamed until they culminated into the bloody genocide of 1994 and Uganda with her post-independence instability including the Amin’s bloody era and the NRA bush war, it is very surprising to see that these are currently ranking among the best destinations to visit in Africa and the world over.
Following a wind of peace and stability that were ushered in through armed struggles in both states, positive trend in conservation, tourism investment and the tourist arrivals can be clearly visualized. The wildlife numbers have increased considerably including endangered primates like mountain gorillas and chimpanzees, heritage sites gazetted, lodges and other accommodation units increased, tourist infrastructure including roads connecting to destinations upgraded, cross border security enhanced among other aspects which shows that Uganda Rwanda Safaris already have a ground on which they can run successfully.
The Uganda Rwanda Safaris and tours can commence and end in either country. The main inspiration behind these tours is their opportunity to track the mountain gorillas in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. The gorilla safaris in Rwanda and Uganda present a diversified experience considering the fact that these habitats are different. Bwindi features hilly landscapes and dense jungle while Volcanoes National park features short shrubs are relatively gentle terrain as many gorilla groups thrive on lower slopes of the volcanoes.
Unlike Rwanda, Uganda features more savannah parks with myriad of wild game which enables the world travellers to connect to Uganda for wild game viewing after tracking gorillas in Rwanda. The cultures are also different. Uganda is a heterogeneous nation while Rwanda is a homogeneous one. Thus exploring the two destinations offers the opportunity to gain a diversified cultural encounter.
The introduction of Single tourist visa for East Africa makes the interstate travel easier and cost effective and this can be acquired at either Kigali International Airport or Entebbe International Airport exiting at either of the two as well.
Uganda Rwanda Safari packages are well designed tapping into the interests of wildlife, culture and adventure enthusiasts but can as well be customized to put into account of individual specific interests.
