Tour Overview

Uganda, a country that has been striving to put its troubled past firmly behind it, has recently been emerging as one of Africa's most exciting and rewarding tour destinations. After getting orientated in Kampala, we explore some ancient tombs, museums and Hindu temples, before heading away from civilisation to marvel at Uganda's most prized possession: its natural environment. Trips to Kibale Forest National Park, famous for its families of habituated Chimpanzees, and Queen Elizabeth II National Park, a designated UNESCO protected site, put us in prime position to view Colobus monkeys, elephants, buffalos, lions and leopards, where visiting Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park yields good opportunities to catch sight of mountain gorillas. It is, however, in Rwanda's Parc National des Volcans that we experience the ultimate mountain gorilla adventure. On the steep slopes of a magnificent, rainforest-blanketed mountain range, we have the chance to follow in the footsteps of conservationist Dian Fossey and track one of five families of gorillas. Though the gorillas are by no means tame, they have come to tolerate the presence of humans for short spells; the perfect conditions for close interaction with wild animals.

Our extraordinary East Africa tour continues in Kenya and Tanzania, two destinations that are most closely associated with the finest safari opportunities. In Kenya, we explore no fewer than five national parks and reserves, including Maasai Mara National Reserve -- often considered the best of Kenya's parks -- and Amboseli National Park -- famous for its large elephant population. Crossing into Tanzania, our trips through Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Serengeti National Park have us watching out for the 'Big Five' and a host of other teeming wildlife, but so abundant are they, we won't have to look too hard to find them.
