Foreign Travel Advice

This great African safari takes you from the mountains, forests and plains of East Africa to the wildlife parks and deserts of the south. Along the way you will experience at very close quarters Africa's most spectacular wildlife and visit some of its finest national parks, such as the Serengeti, Masai Mara in the east and Chobe and Etosha in the south.

You will meet mountain gorillas and chimpanzees in Uganda and elephants, lions, cheetahs and more in Tanzania and Kenya and again in Botswana and in Namibia. However, it's the raw experience of walking safaris to find white rhino in Zimbabwe and canoeing down Zambian rivers in the Lower Zambezi region that get you right up close to Africa's flora and fauna.

It's a wonderful journey through so much of interest and we take it slowly allowing time, to really allow the continent to get under your skin. Although, the area has a great infrastructure for tourism, we will also get you away from the tourist trail and genuinely off the beaten track.

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
2 Nights Bwindi NP
Mountain Gorilla trekking in Uganda
Walking safari in Mburo NP
Wildlife safari in Nakuru NP
2 night jeep safari in Maasai Mara Reserve

Although this is a long trip, the infrastructure in terms of roads, camp sites and hotels is extremely good and so life is generally pretty easy. This is made easier by having a cook on board to help with cooking and camp duties.
