On safari to Rwanda and Uganda – with the Kirchmanns

August 7, 2012

In January, the Kirchmanns visited Rwanda and Uganda with Journeys Discovering Africa. It was a cultural and wildlife safari, taking in all the highlights of both countries.

In Rwanda they visited the genocide memorials and craft markets of Kigali, the primates of Nyungwe Forest, the people of Lake Kivu, and the gorillas of Volcanoes National Park. They then crossed the border north to Uganda where they continued via the beautiful Lake Bunyonyi, Bwindi (where they tracked the other half of the world’s remaining population of mountain gorillas), and on to the savannahs, big game and waterways of Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls National Parks, via another primate interlude in Kibale. Along the way, they enjoyed countless authentic community encounters at cultural heritage sites, in village walks, at coffee processing plants, in fishing villages, at the palaces of ancient royal kingdoms and just on the roadside.

They were fabulous clients to plan a safari for – enthusiastic and adventurous – and they greatly enjoyed their trip. After their return, they were kind enough to share the video of their safari. To book a similar safari please contact a member of the JDA sales team at enquiries@journeysdiscoveringafrica.com.
