Arrive Africa Safaris offers high-quality, affordable trips in Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Using a team of local travel experts, the company crafts bespoke journeys to highlight each area’s top destinations and sights

Uganda has put its turbulent past behind it to become one of the leading tourist destinations in East Africa. The country has a huge amount to offer, from mountain gorillas, found only in the region, to chimpanzees, lions and elephants. The country is also home to one of Africa’s tallest ranges, Rwenzori Mountains (also known as the ‘Mountains of the Moon’), as well as 10 national parks, each with its own wonders. Arrive Africa Safaris’ most popular experiences in Uganda include: a wildlife-rich boat cruise in Murchison Falls National Park; marvelling at the famous tree-climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park; venturing into the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park to see the legendary mountain gorillas; and tracking gorillas in the wild in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park

Like Uganda, Rwanda now attracts travellers from all over the world. The country is probably best known as a place to see endangered mountain gorillas; most of Rwanda’s tourism is dominated by gorilla trekking, an activity that’s earned its reputation as one of the must-do adventures on any trip to Africa. However, there’s so much more to discover in Rwanda — such as the Kigali Genocide Memorial or the 200-metre-high canopy walk in Nyungwe Forest

Arrive Africa Safaris also organises trips to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where around six mountain gorilla families have been habituated for gorilla tracking in Virunga National Park, while lowland gorillas can be seen in Kahuzi-Biéga National Park. Experienced guides take visitors into the gorilla’s world — these trackers and park rangers have helped to habituate the gorilla groups and know them intimately. Visitors need to be physically fit and must be fully equipped for a day’s trekking in varied terrain

Part of Arrive Africa Safaris’ profits go towards furthering worthwhile causes in the local communities in which it operates, such as sending underprivileged children to school
