Uganda is truly the pearl of Africa. Beautiful nature, laid back culture and friendly people who will make you feel at home. The silverback gorillas are a true highlight. Often referred to as “Africa condensed”, Uganda has the best of everything the continent has to offer, packed into one small, but stunning, country. This means you can drive between almost all of the country’s tourism highlights in less than half a day.Uganda
For the true 4x4 adventurer. Few places on earth offer such an intense kaleidoscope of nature and cultural heritage, and half the fun is getting to these attractions. The endless white, sandy beaches, rain forests, baobabs, the remarkable Tsingy and national parks that only see 100 visitors a year. Combine this with a cultural melting pot of mixed African and Asian cultures and the French influence on the cuisine, and you can understand why we happily obeyed your wishes of adding Madagascar as our latest Roadtrip Africa destination.Madagascar
