Embrace the magic of Africa

Reiserute

  • Day 1: Nairobi to Lake Nakuru National Park
    Leaving the bustling city of Nairobi behind, we descend into the Great Rift Valley, an enormous cleft in the Earths surface stretching from the Red Sea to the Zambezi valley and stop at a lookout point to take in the magnificent views. Our overnight stop is near the quaint Lake Nakuru National Park, a relatively small park by African standards however prolific in wildlife. The shallow soda lake attracts a huge variety of birdlife especially flamingos and it is also home to buffalo, lion, rhino black and white, leopard, warthog, baboon, antelope, and a variety of smaller animals. Experience a delightful introduction to East Africas wildlife diversity that we search for in an afternoon game drive making use of local guides and smaller safari vehicles.
  • Day 2: Lake Nakuru National Park to Eldoret
    Travelling on, we climb at altitude today as we travel to the town of Eldoret crossing from the Southern to Northern Hemisphere over the Equator. We spend the evening on the outskirts of Eldoret, Kenyas fifth largest town with a population of around 194,000.
  • Day 3: Eldoret to Kampala, Uganda
    We cross into Uganda, Winston Churchills Pearl of Africa, a country with beautiful natural scenery and a rich mosaic of tribes and cultures and friendly people. After crossing the busy border with its whizzing boda-boda taxis and colourful vendors, we make our way through the countryside dotted with small villages and settlements to the capital city, Kampala. Our first night we stay outside the capital Kampala, an attractive hilly city, bustling with roadside traders, markets and busy matatu mini-bus taxi stands.
  • Day 4: Kampala to Queen Elizabeth National Park area
    Rising early, we leave Kampala and travel west towards Queen Elizabeth National Park, crossing the Equator again, through fertile green terraced hillsides and steep mountains. From our adventure vehicle, we should see herds of Ankole cattle with their incredible long curving horns roaming the roads and paddocks. We stay a short distance from the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Here you will have the opportunity to enjoy the late afternoon at leisure to explore the area.
  • Day 5: Queen Elizabeth National Park, Chimpanzee Trek
    We enter Queen Elizabeth National Park today and make our way to Kyambura Gorge where we trek for the chimpanzees. Unlike their larger cousins, the mountain gorilla, chimps live mostly in the trees and so our viewing consists mainly of peering high into the forest canopy. Predictably, the experience of seeing mans closest relative in the wild is a memorable one. The Queen Elizabeth National Park has over 500 species of bird and 100 species of mammals, making it one of the most bio diverse national parks in the world. If we are lucky, we may get to spot some of these animals en route and after the chimpanzee trek.
  • Day 6: Queen Elizabeth National Park to Lake Bunyoni
    Today, its off to the lush and stunning Lake Bunyonyi Place of many little birds. Nestled high up in the volcanic mountainside, this lake is 27km long, 7km wide and at an elevation of 1950 metres above sea level, and is surrounded by undulating hills between 2200m to 2478m high. With a depth of nearly 900m, this lake is the second deepest lake in Africa the deepest being Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania. There are many optional activities to do especially boat based activities on the lake. Over the next two days the group will be split, with one group trekking to the mountain gorillas while the others stay at Lake Bunyonyi to enjoy the many activities on offer.
  • Day 7-8: Lake Bunyoni - Gorilla Trek
    The next couple of days are spent trekking the mountain gorillas or at leisure where you can relax or enjoy the many optional activities on offer - visit local tribes and villages, visiting the local orphanage, as well as bird watching, boat trips and nature walks. Alternatively just relax, catch up on your travel diary or postcards to home, or sorting through your photos of your trip so far.
  • Day 9: Lake Bunyonyi to Kampala
    Leaving early, we travel through spectacular scenery, crossing the Equator again to Kampala. If time allows this evening, explore the majestic city by night, mingle with the local people, known as the friendliest in Africa and sample some of the local cuisines.
  • Day 10: Kampala to Jinja
    We leave the bustling capital, Kampala, and travel the short distance to the town of Jinja on the banks of Lake Victoria and the Nile. It was in 1862 that the British explorer John Hanning Speke recognised Lake Victoria as the source of the Nile. From his modest monument on the banks, the White Nile begins its 4132-mile course through Uganda, Sudan and eventually Egypt to the Mediterranean Sea. We spend the next two days here with various optional activities to participate on such as bungee jumping, quad biking, white water rafting, community school project, kayaking, mountain biking and more.
  • Day 11-12: Jinja
    The next two days are free for you to relax on the banks of the Nile, explore the surrounding community or enjoy the many optional activities available. There is also the opportunity to make some difference to local children at a local school project Softpower. This is a locally run volunteer programme aimed at building and improving schools in the area of Jinja.

    Leaving Jinja behind, we make our way across the border to Kenya and retracing our footsteps to Eldoret.

  • Day 16: Nairobi to Maasai Mara National Reserve
    We depart the city early and make our way across the Great Rift Valley floor to the Maasai Mara National Reserve. At 1 510 square km, the Maasai Mara National Reserve is a land of endless plains and an abundant wildlife, inhabiting all year-round as well as the two million animals that make up the Great Migration. The Masai Mara National Reserve was named after the Maasai people who inhabit the area, and for the Mara River, which flows through this great reserve. We spend two nights camping on the edge of the Reserve with time to explore the park on morning and afternoon game drives.
  • Day 17: Maasai Mara National Reserve
    Today we enter the reserves gates with our eagle-eyed driver at the wheel scanning the surrounding scene in search of the resident wildlife. With 95 species of mammals including the big 5 - rhino, elephant, leopard, lion and buffalo and over 570 recorded species of birds, we game drive in search for these magnificent animals and birds, pausing for a lunch in between.

Our first stop is Arusha, situated mid-way between Cape Town and Cairo and known as Tanzanias safari capital - a bustling city with colourful markets and shops to explore. After a brief stop, we make our way to our accommodation for the night on the open plains to the west of the city.

We enter the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area and drive around the Craters rim and on down onto the Serengeti plains entering the park at Naabi Gate.Home to an enormous variety of grazing animals, predators, and birdlife, we game drive through the southern section of the park to our designated but unfenced camp where we spend the night under canvas for the ultimate wilderness experience.
  • Day 21: Ngorongoro Crater
    Rising early, we drive out in search of game - lions, leopard, giraffe, hippo, buffalo, wildebeest and Zebra, just to name a few. After our game drive we pack up camp and head back to the Crater where we ascend the outer wall of the Ngorongoro Crater to our camp on the rim. Here wildlife is also free to roam and it is not uncommon to have zebra grazing on the grassed campsite. At 326 square kilometres, the Ngorongoro Crater is Africas largest intact caldera and a prized World Heritage Site. If the view from the rim 2400 metres above sea level is spectacular, the site from the Crater floor some 600 metres below is equally enjoyable.
  • Day 22: Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha
    Waking to the majestic views over the crater rim, we board our 4x4 vehicles and descend the steep dirt road into the base of the Crater for a morning of game driving. All of the large mammals are present except giraffe which cannot manage the steep slopes leading down to the Crater floor.
