Uganda gorilla safari
Walk on the wild side and visit Uganda for a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with one of the rarest animals on Earth. Half of the world’s mountain gorillas are found in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This dense rainforest is a World Heritage site with awe-inspiring biodiversity that lies in the southwest of Uganda. Dotted by forests and lakes and dominated by the dramatic Virunga mountain range, just under 350 mountain gorillas live and play among the mossy undergrowth of the forest floor.
A river cruise with Sanctuary Retreats is a remarkable journey through history – combining sightseeing led by only the most knowledgeable guides with time to relax on deck taking in the scenery along the banks of the Nile, the Three Gorges area of the Yangzi or the Ayeyarwady and Chindwin Rivers in Myanmar.
