Rwanda travel guide

Specialty Museums · Nature & Parks · Art Galleries
Land of a Thousand Hills
Tourism in Rwanda experienced a serious boost in the recent years largely thanks to the country's large population of mountain gorillas. One of only two nations in which the enigmatic, critically endangered gorillas can be tracked, Rwanda appeals to adventurous travelers interested in hiking the hills and equatorial jungles inhabited by the endemic species. The people of Rwanda remain positive about their future, and the political stability that has taken hold since the horrors of the 1994 genocide allows a growing number of international tourists to share in the optimism.

Uganda travel guide

Pearl of Africa
Though small in area, Uganda represents one of the most populated landlocked countries in the world. You can feel this in the lakeside capital, but so much of the country remains untamed and untamable, with great lakes and towering mountains chief among the wilder sights. A recent troubled past delayed the growth of tourism in Uganda, but visitors now arrive in larger numbers, primarily drawn by the diverse wildlife that inhabits the country's mountains and forests. Notably, Uganda houses half of the world's population of mountain gorillas.

Tanzania travel guide

4.1
Safaris · Beaches · Geologic Formations
Though the size and scale of Tanzania may be overwhelming, the people make it a personable and easy-going place to visit. The bigger cities not only offer good connections to the main natural attractions, but also feature bustling markets where locals sell fresh produce, snacks, and crafts. Smaller villages retain their long-held customs, beliefs, and artistic traditions. With the continent's highest peak, and some of the most animal-rich safaris available, Tanzania holidays tend to dart between the big and bold, and the personal and low-key.

Zanzibar Island travel guide

3.7
Beaches · Scuba & Snorkeling · Islands
Unguja
Experience the bustling Zanzibar Island, the financial and economical metropolis of the Zanzibar Archipelago. Most tours of Zanzibar Island start in Zanzibar Town, where centuries of history are on display in Persian bathhouses, street coffee vendors, and the world's last open slave market in Stone Town, the historical center. Beyond that, attractions on Zanzibar Island include numerous archaeological sites dotted across the area.
