The tour Ethiopia, East Africa & Gorillas starts in Nairobi and ends in Gondar. This is an adventure tour that takes 64 days. You will travel through Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya and visit Mekele, Lake Ziway, Lake Nakuru National Park and 30 other destinations. This is a guided group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This trip allows the curious traveller to link the sources of the two Niles together and to explore the Roof of Africa, where we trek through Ethiopia's majestic Simien Mountains. What a contrast to the plains of East Africa, where we visit the Masai Mara, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Samburu Game Reserve and others. But that's not all, in Uganda, this trip expands into the ultimate wildlife experience, tracking the Mountain Gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the chimpanzees of Murchison Falls National Park.

It gets even better, as throughout the Rift Valley of Ethiopia and Kenya, we will meet the tribes of East Africa and learn the history and see the beautiful churches of the Christian kingdoms of Highland Ethiopia, as well as visiting the UNESCO world heritage site of Harar. For lovers of wildlife, history and tribal cultures this really is a must do journey.

“The trip went smoothly, I had a great time. Nepal, Rajasthan, the western coast of India, and the Darjeeling area were big highlights.”

“It was all that was expected and more. The crew were fantastic and they were what made the experience. I would do another Drago tour if Rob, Tig or Rich were there. They were fantastic.”

Travel Insurance

For this Ethiopia, East Africa & Gorillas 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.
