You will visit Entebbe, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Arusha and 7 other destinations in 4 different countries. Serengeti & Silverbacks is a small group tour which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. See below for further details.

The feeling of laying eyes on a family of rare mountain gorillas in the wild is a hard one to describe. Crouching in primeval forest as a mother plays with her babies close by is an experience few humans ever get to have, and for good reason. There are only about 700 mountain gorillas left in the world, and half of them can be found in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Led by a local driver/guide, join a small group of eight travellers on this special expedition into the untouched Ugandan wilderness. Following that, travel to the vast grasslands of East Africa – a place that supports the largest concentration of wildlife in the world. You'll get among the massive herds and their predators in 4WD safari vehicles with our expert local leaders at the helm. Experience the wilds of Africa on this expedition like no other on a breathtaking journey through Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.

Is this trip right for you:
  • Tracking gorillas in the dense forest can sometimes be wet, muddy and uncomfortable. The terrain is by no means easy either, so it can be pretty strenuous and often humid. But the sheer thrill in coming across a habituated group of gorillas, dominated by a great male silverback, more than outweighs any difficulty. You need to be prepared and fit enough to walk up to 4 hours - up and down hill. Perhaps pack some gardening gloves to assist in any up-hill climbs.
  • This itinerary features some long travel days, which can be exacerbated by bumpy African roads. It is recommended that you pay close attention to the given approximations of driving hours.
  • As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.
