Why choose Kori Safaris

There are a great many reasons why you should choose Kori Safaris for your trip to Uganda and Rwanda. The list of reasons that makes us stand apart from our competitors is long and it’s worth going over a few of them here.

What you should know first is that we are members of THE ASSOCIATION OF UGANDA TOUR OPERATORS.

Starting from when you reach the airport in either Kampala or Kigali, you’ll be met by one of our superb safari Guides who will accompany you throughout your stay, driving you from place to place and opening up their vast store of knowledge to answer any questions that you may have about the local area. They are all multilingual and will be able to share their passion for the wildlife and the local communities with you.

The activities that you can engage in are vast and diverse, affording you the unmissable opportunities to meet the various animals and birds that live in this unique and verdant part of the world. The safaris themselves give you the chance to explore the wildlife that makes this part of the world so iconic. The standard safaris and game drives are available to visit the Queen Elizabeth National Park and the Kazinga Channel (which includes a boat ride along the water) and the more unique opportunities to visit chimps, golden monkeys and tree-climbing lions are also available to our guests. The memorial built around the grave of Dian Fossey is a major point of poignancy around the area where you are able to track mountain gorillas in Bwindi and Virunga.

One type of activity is the wide range of walking tours we offer throughout our itineraries. From simple river walks around Bwindi that see you follow the river around the lodge and the Impenetrable Forest, the Batwa community walks that give you the chance to meet and engage with a unique and vibrant culture and their history, to more challenging hikes such as climbing up four of the Virunga volcanoes. The four peaks you can climb are Muhavura, Sabinyo, Mgahinga and Karisimbi. Each offers a very different experience as you tackle the challenging terrain but it’s Karisimbi that represents the greatest challenge of the lot. It’s the highest peak and the summit is often capped with snow. It takes two days to climb, which requires that you camp for a night at the rest point 3700m above sea level, with the summit standing at an impressive 4507m.
