Gorilla Encounter

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

Go all 'George of the Jungle' on this spectacular Gorilla Encounter expedition, packed with more action than you can poke a banana leaf at. This superb short African safari starts and ends in Nairobi, Kenya, with an optional jungle trek in neighbouring Uganda. Get up close and personal with a family of wild mountain gorillas, help a local charity in Jinja, track chimpanzees in Kyambura Gorge and marvel at the fabulous flamingos at Lake Nakuru. With so many memorable animal encounters, you'll be giving David Attenborough a run for his money.

Trip Itinerary

  1. Nairobi, Kenya to Lake Nakuru National Park


    Combat your jet lag by arriving a day before our epic adventure, and then rise early to depart Nairobi for the 'Great Rift Valley', an enormous cleft in the Earth's surface stretching from the Red Sea to Madagascar (but with particularly marked escarpments here in Kenya). Have your camera at the ready - these views are something to write home about. Later, we stop at our camp near Lake Nakuru National Park, a relatively small park (by African standards) but with an abundant of wildlife thanks to its location on the Great Rift Valley floor. This afternoon will provide a delightful introduction to East Africa's wildlife diversity thanks to an afternoon game drive making use of local guides and smaller safari vehicles for a more intimate experience.
