This itinerary combines visits to innovative projects benefitting women and girls with immersion in Uganda's wilderness and wildlife. Rwanda has made huge advances in social innovation and many projects benefit women and girls. Starting in Kigali, you will get to visit some of these as a special guest, and continue this exploration as you cross into Uganda. Visits to these initiatives are a benefit to these communities.

You'll then journey to Uganda's premier gorilla-tracking regions: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Park, followed by safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park which has one of the highest bio diversity ratings of any reserve in the world. The rainforest in the Kyambura Gorge is home to chimpanzees, and the remote Ishasha Sector is famed for its tree-climbing lions, with flamingoes providing a stunning splash of color on the crater lakes. This itinerary provides a wonderful balance of community connections and wildlife exploration.
