Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania

Jump to last reply

In February of 2015, I am heading to these three countries for a series of experiences ranging from observing gorillas and chimps to horseback riding, bungee jumping, a 7 day camel trip and general sight seeing. This is my fifth trip to Africa but first time in Rwanda and Uganda. Tanzania is familiar territory, having done the camel trip before (and loved it), and summitting Kili last spring.

I'd be very interested in those who have done the trekking to see the chimps and gorillas, and what your experiences have been. Any recommendations based on your experiences, thoughts and ideas. I'm curious to know anyone else's thoughts. I come from the mountain country of Colorado. I spent last January trekking through the very thick tropical forests of the Vietnam mountains west of Dong Hoi and I get the impression this might be similar. Would love someone's direct experiences.

I'll be doing a trip report as my itinerary is a month long. Your input and thoughts both as Africa experts and first timers are all welcome.

Of particular interest are clothing thoughts for February and the territory. ETrip Africa has put together a fantastic itinerary just as they did before, so February can't come soon enough!

Recommended threads, etc. Thanks to all in advance for your help.
