Uganda and Rwanda

Uganda and Rwanda

March 2018

Uganda is a land locked African nation about the size of Victoria. It is predominantly a Christian based country with 80% of the 30 million people being of Christian faith. With stunning scenery, much of the country is on a plateau which ascends to over 5,100 metres on Mount Stanley in the south - the 3rd highest peak in Africa. The landscape is a combination of jungle, grasslands and land that has been cleared for farming. Uganda shares Lake Victoria - the largest tropical lake in the world - as its eastern border with Kenya and Tanzania. Rwanda is also a stunningly beautiful land locked country. It borders Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and the Congo. At less than 25,000km (less than half the size of Tasmania), it is one of the smallest nations on the African continent. It is often referred to as “the land of a thousand hills”, with a diverse terrain ranging from active volcanoes and high altitude forest to grasslands and swamplands.

Botswana, Namibia Cape Town and Victoria Falls

Botswana, Namibia Cape Town and Victoria Falls

May 2018

Botswana has a wonderfully diverse culture, with many different tribal influences coexisting with Europeans. The tribal groups within Botswana (Tswana, Kalanga, Basarwa and Kgalagadi) have different languages, traditional dances and clothing, and live a vastly different lifestyle to city- dwellers. Home to large populations of wildlife, rugged national parks, wetlands alive with birds and one of the world’s largest deltas, Botswana’s bounty of natural treasures is remarkable. With winter sunshine, a temperate climate and golden sunsets, it’s no wonder most locals have beaming smiles - they’re surrounded by some of Mother Nature’s greatest triumphs. Home to proud tribes steeped in tradition, herds of rare desert-dwelling elephants, wild horses and massive colonies of seals, Namibia showcases the very best of Africa's raw landscapes. From quaint German-inspired towns to uninhabitable deserts, bushland filled with wildlife and a rocky coastline littered with shipwrecks, Namibia's untamed charm is compelling, captivating and camera-worthy. Red desert dunes, rugged bush veld, dense woodlands and plains of gravel make up Namibia's ancient terrain. Home to the monumental Fish River Canyon and sharing the iconic Kalahari Desert with South Africa and Botswana, Namibia has some of the most interesting landscapes in Africa, if not the world.
