From Chameleons to Communities – On Safari With The Baldwins

February 18, 2014

Last year we welcomed Paul and Sarah Baldwin to Uganda and Rwanda on an epic safari that included all the usual wildlife highlights from gorilla trekking to golden monkeys, but also wove in various local community visits and activities.

Paul is a trustee of The Gorilla Organisation , a conservation charity which has several successful community development projects throughout the area where the gorillas live. As a result, it was a delight to plan a tailor-made itinerary for two visitors who understood the importance of sustainable community tourism in helping to protect Africa’s last remaining mountain gorillas – and who relished the chance to get involved themselves.

They have very kindly shared the best of their photos from their trip with us. We recommend you make yourself a cup of tea – as the slideshow is quite long – but we guarantee every shot was worth its inclusion. Whether it’s a moving close up of a gorilla, a picturesque view of the verdant local scenery, or a portrait of the communities they met along the way – every image is a beautiful testament to the empathy the Baldwins felt for the region.

To enjoy a similar itinerary to Paul & Sarah Baldwin, check out our new Uganda and Rwanda group safaris – which combine authentic cultural encounters with wildlife highlights and some of the best properties in the area.
