General

 For the person wanting a fantastic off the beaten track experience,  Rwanda and Uganda, are the most incredible countries to visit. We have created this unique trip that starts in Rwanda, and ends in Uganda, and gives us a full gorilla encounter in the highlands of Bwindi impenetrable forest, inside Uganda. It also gives us a chance to visit and have an authentic Batwa tribal village visit, and a chance to see rare species such as chimpanzees , forest elephant and a fascinating array of eco systems in these remote areas.

Our trip also includes a journey through a portion of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, en route to Uganda.

This tour starts every Monday in Kigali in Rwanda, and ends every Thursday  in Entebbe in Uganda.

All catering and food items are under the supervision of Johannesburg Beit Din

This is generally an add on product, using Johannesburg before the trip for a Shabbos layover, or works well with  pre or post tour safari in Tanzania or Kenya.
