Discover two of Africa’s safest Countries in the Heart of Africa – Uganda and Rwanda on a Seniors Safari Holiday in the Heart of Africa

Most of us dreamed in our youth about traveling, about going to Africa on Safari.  Over our lifetime we have seen countless of National  Seniors African Safari HolidayGeographic and other wildlife presentations such as from BBC, or PBS.  We may not as young as we used to be but the dreams, the Safari Yearnings within linger on.

We at Kabiza Wilderness Safaris understand the dreams and we call them Safari Yearnings and we know how to satisfy those Safari Yearnings and for years we have taken Seniors on Safaris in Uganda and Rwanda, two of Africa’s Friendliest Countries according to a survey of the African Economist Magazine.

We will not put Bungee-Jumping into the River Nile into your Seniors Safari Itinerary but you might enjoy a Sunset Cruise on the River Nile on your Seniors Safari itinerary.

When it comes to lodgings for , we use budget, moderate and upmarket lodging.  For Seniors Safaris we also use comfortable Lodges with bath and full-board meals.

Any Special offers will be passed on to you, such as seasonal lodge discounts, lower gorilla trekking permits and chimpanzee permits.  In both  Uganda and Rwanda, Seniors Discounts are unheard of, however we do our best to fill the gap with a 3% minimum discount which can add up to a a nice amount  on a longer safari.

As a Tour Operator in the heart of Africa, we personally design the just right Seniors Safari  Tour in Uganda and Rwanda for you whether it be better-budget or upmarket. We understand Seniors – the Director of Kabiza Wilderness Safaris  is one himself…enjoy your  Seniors African Safari Holiday in Rwanda and Uganda.

Please Note:  Senior Discounts are rarely offered in East Africa, in Uganda and Rwanda.  For example a glaring omission by both the Uganda Wildlife Authority and the Rwanda Development Board is the absence of any discounts for Seniors.  Lodges and Hotels do not offer them either.

Senior Discounts might a commong occurence in the US and Canada, but they are not offered in Uganda and Rwanda.  We are the only tour operator to offer at least a 3% discount to Seniors on all Safaris, more on longer Safaris.
