    • Greetings Asonti Barfield. The link to the trip is this itinerary. All information is in the itinerary. Any further questions can be directed to the travel agent, identified at the end of the itinerary. Thanks so much.

  1. There seems to be an abundance of free time on this trip. Will Runoko fill in some of the days with planned activities?

    • Greetings Mickey Dean. I presented your question to Baba Runoko. He said actually the itinerary is very full, but there is freedom to still add more things to the itinerary. But he promises on one will get bored 🙂 Thanks so much!

      • Hello,
        Is there any chance of a wildlife safari being available on the Rwanda/Uganda trip?

    • Greetings LaTia. Please contact the Travel Agent, she can answer all your questions. Thank you!
