Beyond Adventure African Highlands
Marvellous landscapes, countless hills and mountains and unique climates. Welcome to the African Highlands – the home of mountain gorillas, volcanoes, lakes and never-ending nature experiences. This is the pearl in the heart of Africa – enjoy the landscapes, the challenges, and, of course, the endangered wildlife up close.
Rwanda is known as ‘the land of a thousand hills’ and Winston Churchill called Uganda ‘the pearl of Africa’. You will have a unique opportunity to explore these
two extraordinary countries. Rwanda has cultivated a reputation for being the cleanest, most secure and friendliest country in Africa and, of course, for its growing population of endangered mountain gorillas. Here jungles, savannahs, volcanoes, lakes, and forests are just a few hours apart. Rwanda will astonish you with the majestic mountains of the Virunga volcanoes. In Nyungwe Forest National Park you will discover many primates and the best preserved primary rainforest on the planet.
Entering Uganda, you will reveal a tapestry of landscapes, excellent wildlife and gorgeous verdant vistas. It is home to Africa’s tallest mountain range – the Rwenzoris, the source of the Nile and the continent’s largest lake. You will truly be amazed by the extraordinary world of two of the most magical and diverse countries in the center of this amazing continent.
Aim to see lions, leopards, hyenas, elephants, rhinos, hippos and other animal life in the National Parks. But without doubt the true highlight is the guaranteed close encounter with chimpanzees and the mountain gorillas.
