Starting in Kampala and ending in Nairobi, the Serengeti, Gorillas & Beyond trip is a guided adventure trip that takes 26 days. You will visit Mwanza, Kibuye, Kigali and 12 other destinations in 4 different countries. Serengeti, Gorillas & Beyond is a group trip which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. See below for further details.

We travel to Lake Mburo NP, the only park in Uganda with impalas, slender mongooses and giant bush rats, and Queen Elizabeth NP, where we can see hippos, hyenas, chimps, elephants, leopards and lions.

Trek into Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to find the amazing mountain gorillas, you’ll also get a chance to trek to see the chimpanzees of Nyungwe Forest National Park, Rwanda's most bio diverse area.

On this trip we'll also enjoy the classic East Africa safari experience, visiting some of the most famous game parks in the world, including the Serengeti National Park, Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. We hope to see elephant, lion, leopard, giraffe, and other big game during our drives here. We also have an optional hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti which many people say is an absolute highlight of their trip.

We also have three days to follow part of the Congo Nile Trail, a 227km trail which winds along the coast of Lake Kivu in Rwanda, stopping off at local villages and coffee plantations and wild camping on the way.

Simon's review for another Dragoman tour
“Overlanding may not be for everyone as it is very much a shared travelling experience. This was our second trip with Dragoman after hopping off the truck in Santiago and travelling independently for a couple of months before re-joining the same truck in Lima. As before, we very much enjoyed the whole journey and also the wonderful crew and fellow travellers, who are all now active personal friends on social media well after the trip.”

For this Serengeti, Gorillas & Beyond tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
