11 Days Luxury Gorillas and Tanzania Wildlife Safari
11 Days Luxury Gorillas and Tanzania Wildlife Safari
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in south-western Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 450 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked.
Tanzania is Africa’s visual masterpiece for classic safari vacations in East Africa. It is a country of natural wonders, dramatic wildlife events, seductive and romantic beaches, extraordinary ancient towns, archaeological sites and geological wonders forming a great destination for exclusive journeys.
