This 5 Days Combined Uganda Rwanda Safari combines gorilla trekking safari in Uganda and Golden monkey trekking in Rwanda’s Parc volcanoes National Park. One hour is allowed to interact with the mountain gorillas in Bwindi impenetrable national park. Thereafter you will head in to Rwanda for only the golden monkey trekking safari which is a very different experience from gorilla trekking. The monkeys react and interact differently; they will keep on playing hide-and-seek much to the delight of the visitors. Contact us to book our 5 Days Combined Uganda Rwanda Safari today.
