We dropped in Rwanda in 2014 for a tailor made gorilla safari tour to volcanoes national park and lake kivu. Our trip was wonderful and we were never disappointed at any point. Our driver guide was the best and he took good care of us throughout our stay. We booked our tour 6months to the travel date giving apple time for our tour operator to arrange all our trip essentials in good time. Our lodges Mountain Gorilla view and lake kivu serena hotel where very good, nice food and staff, awesome beach setting, wide rooms with both sea &, forest views, free wifi etc. This is the reason as to why I chose Rwanda as my best tourism destination in Africa and I believe if you also consider spending your holiday in the land of thousand hills, the memorable experience will make you feel the same.

The Best way to discover Africa is by visiting Uganda and Rwanda on a combined safari and if time permits you can add on other Africa countries of your interest. The maximum number of days required for this adventure is 9-10 days. But if your interest is trekking the mountain gorillas then 5-7 days are just enough. You will go gorilla trekking in Bwindi national park of Uganda and volcanoes national park of Rwanda. Many unique holidays are designed in these two destinations some to only Uganda or Rwanda and some are combined for both countries. Tours include exclusive Uganda gorilla safaris, Rwanda gorilla trekking safaris, & chimpanzee safaris, Culture safaris, Home stay safaris, Uganda birding safaris, nature & ecotourism safaris, wildlife safaris, adventure & mountaineering safaris, charity challenge biking tours, volunteerism & sustainable safaris among others.
However if you have limited time Rwanda is the best though both countries have a lot to offer to guests if given the opportunity. Some travelers fear visiting two different countries because of the long hours spent on road while connecting from one destination to another which isn’t the case with Rwanda and Uganda. The two countries are close to each other in location and share boarder boundaries at Katuna using safari vehicles to connect to both counties, public buses to Rwanda either way and some only spend 1hr to connect to both countries by air using the multiple airline companies which operate flights from Kigali international airport (KGL) to Entebbe international airport (EBB) at only a fare rate of $265-300 for a return ticket though its subjected to change.
You chose to start your tour from Rwanda and end it in Uganda or either way which depends on your interest and sometimes the airport you used as your destination when booking your flights. If you booked your flight to Kigali international airport (KGL) you will begin with Rwanda safari adventures and end with Uganda the pearl of Africa. No need to use different travel agents since one agent can work on all arrangements perfectly .if you back packing in both countries its good to hire a private tax or book a ticket from a bus company who carrys passengers to Uganda from Rwanda and from Rwanda to Uganda. Find the bus offices at the bus operating terminals in both countries.
