Come face to face with the mountain Gorilla in Uganda
Uganda, often referred to as the 'Pearl of Africa', is a country of striking beauty and home to the deepest crater lake in all of Africa, Lake Bunyoni. Its national parks and wildlife reserves boast over 300 species of mammal and more than 1000 species of birds, though Uganda's major attraction is the approximate 600 remaining mountain gorilla. You will need a gorilla permit to do the trek to see the gorillas, which we organise for you. The permits are vital in helping finance patrols that are responsible for protecting the gorillas from poachers.Read More

I was one of 6 people that travelled 57 days on the Great African Expedition from Nairobi, Kenya to Capetown, South Africa.
What an absolutely fantastic trip, from day 1 to the end. We saw the "big 5" multiple times and met some lovely people along the way.
I've got nothing but high praise for our Group Leader, Hes, similarly, Malinga, our cook, was a terrific guy that kept us well fed in sometimes difficult circumstances. Finally, Steve, our driver, was exceptional and kept us safe all the way.
Overall, I had a Fantastic time.
I was the oldest guy on the the truck and had an unbelievably incredible time.”
Amazing trip, the crew were one of the best parts, made it so much fun and no problems at all. ”
I had an amazing time on this tour, thanks largely to our excellent guide Godfrey. He was very patient with everyone's questions and requests and was very informative about the areas we travelled through. I feel the tour offered great value for money, however there were a few extras that would have been handy to know about before the tour to budget for such as the optional upgrades along the way.
I was very pleased with the food offered being a vegetarian. Overall I highly rate this tour and was one of the best travel experiences of my life. ”
