A close encounter with gentle giants on a gorilla safari in Uganda is an extraordinary African experience that will always stay with you forever and is just one of the many wildlife spottings this unforgettable African overland adventure has to offer. Roam the verdant plains, rainforests, papyrus-fringed lakes and acacia woodlands of Kenya and Uganda's game parks – from Queen Elizabeth National Park to the Masai Mara Reserve – spot lions, rhinos, chimps, antelope, hippos, leopards and more in their natural habitats. The staggeringly beautiful African countryside will provide memories that last a lifetime.
Arrive in Kenya and soak up the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Nairobi before you embark on your African Adventure. First stop Lake Nakuru National Park. Take in spectacular views of the Rift Valley, Lake Naivasha and Elementaita on the drive north-west to Lake Nakuru National Park, situated in the heart of the Great Rift Valley.
Get closer to nature and travel cross to the border to Uganda. Take a walk on the wild side in Kalinzu Forest National park. Keep your eyes peeled for some of the forest’s most famous inhabitants such as chimpanzees, baboon, red-tailed monkey and elephants. Stay at the heart of action in your tent enjoying the sounds of the forest.
Join local guides and trackers and begin your climb through the rugged mountain terrain of Bwindi National Park. With your Mountain Gorilla Permit in hand the group will begin tracking these rare animals. Nothing comes close to the sheer excitement of coming across a habituated group of gorillas. Watch their movements and amaze in seeing a mirror image of yourself. Be mesmerised as you watch them eat, sleep, groom and play – the giant silverback surveying the scene as the smaller ones laze in the trees or play like children.
Finish your adventure with a morning drive to the famous Masai Mara National Park. The Masai Mara is the quintessential African experience, with sparse open plains, dramatic skies and the world's most iconic animals living within its boundaries. Explore this diverse environment and view a multitude of wildlife on an evening 4x4 game drive. This staggeringly beautiful African countryside will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
