Looking for African gorilla safari? Travel to Rwanda with Eco Tours Rwanda a very reliable travel agency that has opened its offices in Kigali to help up travelers in Rwanda planning to take short tours, scheduled photo safaris to gorillas in Volcanoes National Park, Virunga massifs or Bwindi Forest and other wildlife destinations.
In July 2016 my fellow photographers and I we had a conference about the African wildlife photography and we can plan for you to visit Africa and my friend Moses the Managing Director of Nature Adventure Africa Safaris Ltd, is our ground handler of these amazing conservation and photography trip visiting the mountain gorillas in the 3 neighboring countries (Uganda, Rwanda and DRC Congo). On your trip you can visit gorillas in volcanoes visiting the Silver back group and it is so amazing to visit this group having big members including the silverbacks and juveniles which are so playful and the volcanoes park offers the clear opportunity to take photos and videos. After experiencing the gorillas we spend our evening with the local communities at the Iby’iwacu Cultural Villages experiencing the Rwanda cultural performances from once the gorilla hunters and now the ecotourism warriors. The center is so much encouraging the community based tourism to these local people.
Eco tours Rwanda run trips that support the local communities and this company works with seasonal photographers like “Sam Clark” a conservationist from Australia and she participates in the “Walking for the Lions” and this program runs every year in each country interested in conservation of African wildlife and environment at large with the seasonal passion and primate trips in Uganda and Rwanda.
If you are interested in this photography expedition you can book the 13 Days Gorilla Eco Tour that starts from Rwanda, visit DRC Congo Virunga National Park and then finish with the Uganda gorillas and wildlife experience. Uganda is much known for the wildlife in Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls National Park and your must animal to search are the African big5 (Rhinos, Elephants, Lions, Buffaloes and Leopards), warthogs, water and bush bucks among others. After you can experience the amazing boat cruise along the Kazinga channel and also along the River Nile, towards the bottom of the River Nile and on these cruise you can sport more wildlife species that were missed on the game drive.
You can stay in eco-friendly lodges that blend with nature and these include the Mountain Gorilla View Lodge in Volcanoes National Park, Mikeno Lodge in the Virunga National Park, Bwindi Jungle Lodge in Bwindi Forest National Park, Bush Safari Camp in Queen Elizabeth National Park and then the Murchison River Lodge in Murchison Falls National Park.
Later you can make an extension to Kibale Forest National Park where you can have unforgettable chimpanzee habituation which activity take a full day stay with the primates in the mist, and while on this ecotourism experience activity you have high chances to spot more primates, birds and the flora. You can stay at Kibale Forest Camp which is situated into the jungle and staying here is much amazing for Eco tourists and you can really appreciate Moses to promote this type of tourism than mass tourism in Africa.
