5 Unique Safari Adventures in East Africa


East Africa is a wonderful region that is rich in wildlife, Culture, landscape, and weather across the four countries and its surrounding. If you are looking for adventure off the beaten track experience Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania has it all. Gorilla tracking, Hiking, Mountain Climbing, Game viewing, boat rides/cruise, white water rafting, cultural live tours are the available tourist activities which attract millions to the region every year. The region has unique destinations and national parks which blend with tourist interests and demand. Travel agencies help tourists to tailor make tours and even match different destinations according to the tourist interest for an exceptional amazing Africa safari holiday experience starting from 1-25 days. All tours are organized depending on the tourist budget since the region has something for everyone.

Checking out the Unique east Africa countries and its neighbors Uganda, Rwanda & DR Congo are the main grounds for hikes, chimpanzee and Gorillas tracking a breathtaking lifetime experience done in Bwindi Impenetrable Rain forest, Virunga, Mgahinga and volcanoes national park. It’s unusual to track Gorilla and also hiking the Bisoke & Karisimbi Mountains or the Active Congo volcanoes since both activities require some level of fitness and not recommended for people with poor health.

The tour will expose you to all the unique DR Congo active volcanoes, Nyiragongo and Nyamulagira, Karisimbi and Bisoke Mountain, the most impressive volcanoes hills plus the mountains Gorillas and other primates. I think it’s interesting to track gorillas in two or the entire three Gorilla havens in Africa since it can give you enough stories and memories to keep and cherish for a life time. Gorilla permit prices vary for the three countries and the same applies to hikes though the price is worthy the experience in all the three countries. Bookings for hikes and Gorilla permits can be made at the same time to travel experts or Agents responsible for all your gorilla safari arrangements or make direct booking at the countries park management offices a hard process if you not with in the country. However, in Uganda you can check for Gorilla permit availability online unlike in other countries and also inquire how best you can buy and book a gorilla permit.

There is still much to do and explore in the region in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda still the internationally claimed destinations for Game viewing, and magical adventures. All wildlife lovers visit different parks in search of the magical wildlife. Bigger wildlife concentrations are viewed every year from June to October in both Kenya and Tanzania and the battles of buffaloes, zebras and hungry crocodiles in water give tourist’s remarkable moments and memories of African wildlife. Masai Mara & Serengeti national park is the main wildlife destinations of the region and is great places for family tours, sole and group tours. Game Viewing is done in closed safari vehicles with pops up ideal for animal viewing in both morning and evening in all the Game reserves as a way of protecting tourists from the wild animals.

Viewing game on foot is also an option available in some parks and reserves though quite dangerous when it comes to game reserves with concentrated wildlife. Safari vehicles follow animals in the wild in order to enable tourists to view them in right angles and also take nice photo captions. Expect to experience the best wildlife viewing when you visit the regions finest wildlife reserves although each game reserve offers wildlife in a unique way but the common factor is that you can’t miss out to see the big five in all wildlife parks of the region.
