Travelling to Uganda and Rwanda doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look fashionable - we also follow the fashion trends!
Gucci, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton – who hasn't heard of them?! When you are packing, mix up your wardrobe a bit…remember, fashionable can still mean functional.
Uganda and Rwanda are tropical countries but can also get cold so be sure to pack all of the essentials:
My last piece of advice - Why not get some truly African clothing while you are on safari to take home with you?
Kitenge is a famous, colorful African fabric that is used in a number of African countries such as Uganda, Rwanda, Congo and Nigeria. If you have enough time, I would highly recommend getting something tailor-made in this fun fabric – I myself have a very colorful Kitenge suit jacket. It is my favorite item of clothing and goes perfectly with a normal pair of jeans and adds a splash of color.
Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor is nothing short of exhilarating. The chimps effortlessly cross and scamper through the trees above the gorge, and visitors on the other hand must cross the river using natural bridges in order to keep up with the chimps. So although the walk usually lasts only 2–3 hours, descending the steep gorge and crossing the log bridges over the river requires some agility and fitness.
Chimpanzee tracking is also available in nearby Kalinzu, a forest reserve 30 minutes drive from Kyambura Gorge Lodge where there is a community of about 40 habituated chimpanzees.
