Foreign Travel Advice

This 21 day tour is designed to give an in depth and unhurried view of East Africa. The wildlife viewing opportunities particularly for rhino are excellent with a visit to Nakuru NP. In Uganda there's a further 2 nights in Queen Elizabeth NP, a walking tour across Mburo NP and 2 days in the beautiful Murchison Falls NP. The tour includes searching for Chimpanzees at Budongo, visiting Bwindi Impenetrable Forest looking for Mountain Gorillas and 2 nights in Kenya's Masai Mara. It ticks all the boxes for wildlife lovers and is also great for adrenalin seekers with rafting the stunning White Nile. It is also an amazing way to explore two of East Africa's most iconic countries, Uganda and the highlands and Rift Valley of Kenya.
