Backpacking -- Tanzania or Uganda

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm going to be going to E Africa and I was wondering which country you would suggest backpacking -- Tanzania or Uganda?

I've heard great things about both. I'm not really that interested in doing a safari (cost) and would like to keep things pretty cheap (i think it'll be tough to get a cheap day at a nat'l park but maybe you guys know something i don't). I like Zanzibar and Mt. Kilimajaro in Tanzania...and I like the Gorillas (cost?) and whitewater rafting the Nile in Uganda.

I've obviously just started my research, but i was hoping some guys with personal experience could clue me in as to which country is more preferable to backpack in (although i imagine both are pretty awesome).
