Wildlife and Adventure across Africa in 7 days or less. - Awesome Experiences

Epic Africa

Huge skies, empty wilderness and safari lodges in ‘Big Five’-heavy National Parks: Africa is the world’s best wildlife viewing region – but there’s much more to see here too. Conquer Kilimanjaro, the continent’s tallest mountain, search out gorillas in the Ugandan bamboo forest, and take on the misty Zambezi en route to Victoria Falls

Uganda

With its volcanic mountains, rolling green hills, mist covered rainforests, stunning waterfalls, access to the River Nile and the largest freshwater lake in Africa, Uganda is a country of diverse and spectacular landscapes. Often regarded as the go-to destination for primate lovers, Uganda is home to more than half the planet’s mountain gorillas. No trip to the country is complete without tracking these magnificent primates in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. While Uganda’s National Parks may not be as well-known as those of their African neighbours, they boast an abundance of wildlife including the Big Five. What’s more, the parks enjoy fewer visitors, enabling wildlife spotting in tranquil and peaceful surroundings.

Tanzania

From Lake Victoria to Mount Kilimanjaro to the Serengeti, Tanzania is a land of vast extremes. This is the place for big-hitting sites and classic Big Five safaris, alongside some of the world’s most exciting natural experiences, such as watching 1.5 million wildebeest on their yearly migration. The mountain of Kilimanjaro has captured human imagination since antiquity, and summiting Kili continues to be THE bucket-list must-do for many. Adventure-seekers will relish the challenge of our Kilimanjaro hike, a truly Awesome Experience.

 

Zambia

Peaceful and breathtaking, Zambia is home to the majestic Victoria Falls (called Mosi-oa-Tunya by locals). With a strong focus on tasteful safaris and a friendly vibe, Zambia is a great place for a foray into African tourism. Experience the best that the country has to offer on our Livingstone Zambia safari, visiting the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls, or our South Luangwa dry grassland safari experiences.

Rwanda

Known as the ‘land of a thousand hills’, Rwanda has rugged, dramatic mountains, which segue to lowlands and one of Africa’s Great Lakes: Lake Kivu. The Volcanoes National Park is a world-renowned site for mountain gorilla spotting to see some of our closest primate relatives. Rwanda is getting a name for luxury travel, so expect to travel in style and comfort on our Rwanda experiences. As the most densely populated country in Africa, it also maintains a lively community spirit that’s worth embracing.
