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

Wow!!!! This trip was an adventure of a lifetime. Seeing the gorillas up so close and personal was incredible. Visiting the beautiful lakes of Navaisha, Nakuru, Bunyonyi and Victoria was fascinating. Our game drive through the Maasai Mara was brilliant and we saw the Big 5 in about half an hour! Our guides for all game drives were fantastic!! However our crew Mwangi, Jared and Nick were the most hospitable, caring and friendly bunch of guys I have had the pleasure of traveling with. They really made the trip what is was AMAZING! Thank you On The Go Tours once again for providing quality touring and mind blowing experiences. I'm just about to book my next one! ”
Excellent tour with great guides, truck drivers, and cooks. Would highly recommend travelling Africa via On The Go overland tours. Excellent value for money and most importantly we felt safe at all times.”
An amazing journey though Africa over 57 days. Great sights and experiences, On The Go Tours have put together a fantastic trip. You’ll see the best Africa has to offer and have a chance at one in a lifetime experiences. The different crew members over these legs made the trip even more memorable in particular our last leader Onary. Our cooks kept us well fed including some delicous local dishes. If you have the time do this trip. ”
