Your journey at a glance

Embark on a captivating 8-day bucket-list wildlife experience to Kenya and Uganda as you travel from the game-rich plains of the Masai Mara plains in Kenya, to the magnificent gorillas of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.  The new easy flight connections via Entebbe through to the Bwindi Forest National Park airstrip, has made this dream combination seamless. One of Africa’s most revered safari destinations, the Masai Mara National Park is renowned for its year-round abundant wildlife, and the annual spectacle of the Great Migration. A current of romance is threaded into your Kenyan lodge location, as you look onto the sweeping views celebrated in the final scenes of the movie ‘Out of Africa’.

This is a classic safari at its ultimate, with offerings of twice-daily guided game drives, night drives, and bush walks within the seclusion of a private concession area. Cultural interactions with the Maasai are yet another highlight. Your Masai Mara experiences will be beautifully counterpointed by the lush forest setting of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This region, the country’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforest jungle, is over 25 000 years old. An environment coloured by butterflies, birds, orchids, tree ferns, and waterfalls, it’s a primate-heaven, and home to about 320 mountain gorillas, almost half of the world’s remaining wild population. Your journey will include the rare opportunity to track a gorilla family, with a maximum of only eight people allowed at one time.
