Besides primates, Uganda is marked by lush savannah protected areas dotted with a myriad of wild game including the Big five namely; Lions, Elephants, Buffalos, Leopards and Rhinos along with other wild game like Elands, Burchell’s Zebras, Rothschild Giraffe, Impala, Jackson’s Hartebeest, Aardwolf, Cheetah among others. The wild game viewing is popularly done in Kidepo Valley National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary and Lake Mburo National Park. Wild game viewing can be extended to Rwanda’s Akagera National Park and Congo’s savannah parks.

Remarkable highlands like Mount Rwenzori standing as the Africa’s third highest, Nyiragongo Volcano with the largest and the most violent lava lake, Nyamulagira – the Africa’s most erupting volcano and the entire Virunga landscape do not only offer lasting sightseeing experiences but also rich Mountain hiking possibilities.

The Uganda Rwanda Congo Safaris and Tours offer a touch of the transition from the East Africa Savannah to the Central African jungle. The safaris commence in Kampala Uganda and end in Kigali Rwanda and vice versa but the flow is flexible and thus can be reviewed according to travellers’ interests.
