The tour Gorillas And The Wilds Of Rwanda & Tanzania starts in Nairobi and ends in Kigali. This is an adventure tour that takes 24 days. You will travel through Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda and visit Kibuye, Lake Mburo National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and 11 other destinations. This is a guided group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

East Africa is all about the wildlife. On this tour we’ll travel overland through Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda to some of the best national parks and game reserves East Africa has to offer, including Samburu National Reserve, the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Lake Mburo NP, and Queen Elizabeth NP, hoping to spot game like cheetahs, lion, leopards, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, and more. In particular we’ll be looking out for both black and white rhino in Nakuru NP, and heading out on an atmospheric trek in search of mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.


To break it all up we also have an overnight stay in a traditional Samburu village where we’ll meet the tribespeople there, a visit to East Africa’s adventure capital Jinja where we can go white-water rafting, bungee jumping and quad biking, and we spend time in the cities of Nairobi, Kampala and Kigali.

Joseph's review for another Dragoman tour
“Jalol was our guide in Uzbekistan and he was - far and away - the best guide we've had. He was full of information, gave us detailed explanations of the sights we were visiting (even quizzed us on them), constantly put events in perspective with respect to the local culture, and was a great story teller. He was full of tips and ideas, and went out of his way to help members of the group who wanted to do optional activities. Jalol was a big part of making Uzbekistan a most memorable part of our journey.”

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.
