10 Travel Destinations to Visit in 2020


Rwanda may have been getting much of the gorilla-trekking attention recently, but its neighbour Uganda has also been steadily growing in tourism – visitors to this south-east-Africa state have increased 32 per cent in the past two years. It’s home to half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas, with whom humans share a surprising 98 per cent of our DNA.

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.
