Uganda and Rwanda Updates

September 14, 2010  By: Africa Adventure Consultants

Lots of great updates coming straight to us from our partners in Rwanda and Uganda. Read on for the latest information on this exciting region where chimp trekking, game viewing, and gorilla trekking are safari highlights!

Nyungwe Forest Lodge has just opened in Rwanda‘s Nyungwe Forest. The lodge was built to blend in with the surrounding environment and is situated in a tea plantation on the edge of the forest. All of the luxurious rooms are forest facing and offer a king bed or twins beautifully crafted furnishings and balconies on some rooms. The lodge has an outdoor heated pool and jacuzzi and fitness center.

Additionally, a new canopy walk has been built in Nyungwe and will be open to the public soon. Stay tuned for updates!
The Kyaninga Lodge recently opened near Fort Portal, about a 1-hour drive from Kibale Forest and chimpanzee trekking opportunities. The lodge is situated on a picturesque plot of land with a large crater lake and surrounded by a natural forest that is home to four troops of black-and-white colobus monkey. The lodge offers eight cozy log cabins with large verandahs.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
