Uganda, Rwanda and Zanzibar help?

Jump to last reply

I am in the beginning stages of putting an itinerary together for our third trip to Africa next year. I am thinking of 10 days in Uganda, 5 days in Rwanda, and 6 days in Zanzibar. We previously have been in Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and South Africa. I would appreciate any input on the sites in Uganda and Rwanda that are not to be missed as well as suggestions re Zanzibar. Aside from what the guidebooks say, I truly appreciate comments by those with similar interests who have actually been there. We are most interested in gorilla and golden monkey trekking. Although we are not young, we recently completed a trek to Machu Picchu and absolutely loved it. Re Zanzibar, we love to snorkel so would be most interested in how Zanzibar compares to other islands.

P.S. To atravelynn, I have loved reading your posts over the years which I find to be of great help to me. I was going to offer to provide input into Peru/Galapagos for you but, alas, see you have already been there! Many thanks for all of your comments!
