Foreign Travel Advice

Mix some of the most amazing wildlife experiences that the continent has to offer with some of it’s lesser-known gems.

Explore the historic UNESCO world heritage city of Harar, an ancient trading hotspot, and in stark contrast discover the abundance of wildlife as you wander the Bale Mountains National Park.

Journeying through the Rift Valley you’ll truly get off the beaten track and experience overloading at its best.

As your trip travels over the north of Lake Victoria you’ll be treated to a selection of unforgettable experiences. From the adrenaline activities of Jinga, to the safaris of Nakuru and Queen Elizabeth National Park and the mesmeric activity of watching a family of mountains gorillas interact with each other in Bwindi.

Optional white water rafting on the White Nile at Jinja
Visit Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary
3 nights at Murchison Falls NP
Chimpanzee Budongo Forest Trek
2 night safari in Queen Elizabeth NP

A real mixed trip with just over half of it spent camping and the rest in a mixture of hotels, guesthouses and hostels. Local hotels will be comfortable but don’t expect any luxuries. With some long drive days to be expected, you’ll get to bond with the rest of the group as you watch the world go by.

You’ll have the experience of an African camp master to help prep food when camping - but don’t forget you’ll have your own jobs around camp too! An adventurous journey that will be one that you won’t forget!
