Details

The edge of the rainy season is the best time to visit Rwanda and Uganda. The days are clear and cool, the gorillas are lower to the forest and you can see them better. The evenings are rainy with incredible thunderstorms, always clearing up by sunrise in time for you to hike, find the gorillas and monkeys or otherwise enjoy. See 2 countries in 4 days. Gorillas, canoe rides, Batwa trail, and the golden monkeys.

Friday Morning :
Depart RWANDA Air at 1:00 am landing at 600 am.
