Itinerary

Fly to Entebbe
Day 1-2

Entebbe, Uganda

Your itinerary starts in Entebbe where you will spend the night, before setting off on your wild East African adventure. Arrive at your quiet guesthouse where you can relax and unwind from your long haul flight by the turquoise waters of the swimming pool.

Accommodation: Karibu Guest House ( 1 night )
Day 2-5

National Parks and Reserves, Uganda

You will fly west to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, where you will have the exhilarating experience of trekking (and sometimes climbing) to see the rare mountain gorillas. Guests are able to spend an hour with these gentle giants, watching as the families interact and play with each other in the thick foliage. Watch as the silverback keeps a gentle eye from a distance as his family eat, groom and rest in their forest home. During your three night stay in Bwindi you will be fortunate enough to visit two different gorilla families.

Accommodation: Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge ( 3 nights )
Day 5-6

Nairobi, Kenya

Fly from Kibale back to Entebbe where you will catch your onward flight to Nairobi, Kenya. Your one night in Nairobi will be spent at the world-famous Giraffe Manor. One of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings, this stately home is set amongst 12 acres of private land which is home to a herd of resident Rothschild’s giraffe. Every morning and evening these popular residents like to make an appearance. The highlight of your stay will certainly be the renowned Giraffe Manor breakfast, where you can expect to be interrupted by your long-necked friends as they stick their heads through the window in the hope of a snack.

Accommodation: Giraffe Manor ( 1 night )
Day 6-9

Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

From Nairobi you will fly to the impressive Maasai Mara. Enjoy three nights on safari in one of Kenya’s premier wildlife reserves; here the endless grasslands are broken up by tree-lined rivers and the abundance of animals includes cheetah, lion, rhino, elephant, giraffe, buffalo and the spectacular annual wildebeest migration. Explore the plains on morning and afternoon 4x4 games drives, get up close to nature on fascinating walking safaris and dine under the stars on bush dinners.

Accommodation: Ol Seki ( 3 nights )
