These tours are conducted any time from end of January till middle of April from Nairobi/ Kenya or Kampala/ Uganda
3 WEEKS GORILLAS IN UGANDA
We meet in Nairobi and drive through Western Kenya to Uganda. Through Jinja at Lake Victoria we proceed to the Volcanoes Mountains on the border to Congo. As it is impossible for foreign operators to prebook the climb to the Gorillas, we have set aside sufficient days for all participants to see the Gorillas. Hence we have put the climb to the Gorillas at the very beginning of the tour. As our groups are small, we have always succeeded. After this excitement we proceed to Queen Elizabeth NP. Our camp is situated at a small river on the border to the Congo. For 2-3 days we will search this area for the abundant game and with a bit of luck, we will also see the ‘tree lions’, which rest in the heat of the day on the Acacia trees to protect themselves from the Tse Tse flies. This park is also the home of huge Pythons, which are frequently seen. From this lovely camp we move on through Fort Portal to the northern part of the park, to the Murchison Falls. Here the Nile is plunging down in foaming cascades, after the Victoria Falls one of Africas most spectacular water falls. A river cruise is a must and maybe we will see one of the few remaining Shoe Bill Storks. The river is home to many Hippos and Crocodiles, Elephants and Buffaloes come to drink. If there is time on our return to Kenya, we will pass the Rubuyo Forest to see the Chimpansees. It is very exciting to see these lively primates on foot in their natural habitate.
The last 2 nights before our return to Nairobi we will spend in the Lake Nakuru NP. Here East Africas largest population of both black and white Rhinos are at home. Leopard and Lion are often seen and the thousands of Flamingos in the shallow lake are spectacular.
End of the Safari is Nairobi.
It is also possible to start and finish the Safari in Kampala/ Uganda, but then we spend more time in the Q.E. NP, the Nakuru NP will be left out.
