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

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. ”
Very friendly, approachable, humorous, and helpful. He was knowledgeable about the country and we learnt a lot about history and culture. Would definitely recommend Frederick, Peter and Saris as the dream team. Anyone that gets them will be well looked after.”
Linda was lovely, warm and approachable but relatively new to the job I believe so some of her info could have been a bit more definitive. Tom was a great driver and always felt we were in good hands. John was an excellent cook - good variety, very attentive to cleanliness - always on time and committed to us. Maybe an extra night in the Mara would ease the long drives and give some more game driving or leisure time. Thank you ”
