Hi! We are in the prelim stages of planning 2013 trip. Can anyone recommend reputable companies that offer both Rwanda/Uganda gorilla/chimp safaris for about a week with more upscale accommodations? There's a lot of info out there & I've tried my own search & found some companies that offer one country but not the other (or maybe I have to specially request tailor-made from these companies?). The only company I've found is Volcanoes Safaris that offers a 7 day trip to both countries & they look really awesome, but I'd like to be able to compare a few different companies & compare apples to apples.
Also, the only times of year we could go would be mid-late April or around Xmas/New Year - is it correct to assume that because of the rain, December would be better? We're really most interested in animal viewing & bad (but not horrible weather) is not much of a deterrent.
Any input would be much appreciated...thanks!
