Foreign Travel Advice

We travel to Lake Mburo NP, the only park in Uganda with impalas, slender mongooses and giant bush rats, and Queen Elizabeth NP, where we can see hippos, hyenas, chimps, elephants, leopards and lions.

Trek into Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to find the amazing mountain gorillas, you’ll also get a chance to trek to see the chimpanzees of Nyungwe Forest National Park, Rwanda's most bio diverse area.

On this trip we'll also enjoy the classic East Africa safari experience, visiting some of the most famous game parks in the world, including the Serengeti National Park, Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. We hope to see elephant, lion, leopard, giraffe, and other big game during our drives here. We also have an optional hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti which many people say is an absolute highlight of their trip.

We also have three days to follow part of the Congo Nile Trail, a 227km trail which winds along the coast of Lake Kivu in Rwanda, stopping off at local villages and coffee plantations and wild camping on the way.

Overnight in stunning Mburu NP with optional guided walk
2 night safari in QEII NP including boat trip
Calmly sit eye-to-eye with a Silverback mountain gorilla
Optional forest trekking in Ruhengeri & Volcanoes NP
2 nights camping in Nyungwe NP with chimp trekking
Visit a local tea plantation in Rwanda
Visit the thought provoking genocide monument in Kigali

A fairly challenging trip with a few long drive days, on which you'll be wild camping most of the time - but you'll be rewarded with world-class game-viewing opportunities, warm hospitality and many activities to get involved with.

Welcome to Kampala! If you would like to explore Kampala fully, we advise you arrive a day earlier to give yourself the time to see some of the highlights in the city - possible activities include visiting the Uganda Museum, the Cathedral and the Kasubi Tombs. Please note that many of the options listed below will only be possible for those with extra time in Kampala before the start of your trip with us - please contact the Sales team if you would like to book pre-tour accommodation with us to have extra time exploring Kampala.
