A wonderful journey that explores the Nile all the way from Cairo through to Khartoum and then the Blue Nile up to its source at Lake Tana in Ethiopia. It then heads down to the source of the White Nile, the town of Jinja in Uganda, where this great river flows out of Lake Victoria. Along the way we have the opportunity to discover the historic cultures of ancient Egypt at the numerous sites such as Luxor or Abu Simbel and those of the Kushite Kingdom in Sudan and of course the long and colourful history of Ethiopia's Christian Kingdom. We traverse the immensity of two great deserts, the Sahara and the Northern Kenyan and climb to the 'Roof Of Africa', to trek in the Simien Mountains, before travelling along the Rift Valley from Addis Ababa and down to Nairobi. We witness some of Africa's finest wildlife and national parks in Kenya and Uganda, including Samburu, Nakuru, Masai Mara and the highlight of the whole journey, seeing the Gorillas and Chimpanzees in Uganda.
  • See the mummy of Rameses II in the Cairo Museum
  • Guided tour of the pyramids, tombs and other wonders of Egypt
  • Explore the ancient city of Alexandria
  • See the famous Suez canal
  • Relax on the beach of the Red Sea resort, Marsa Alam
  • Marvel at the incredible sights of Luxor
  • Explore the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings
  • Guided tour of the Temple of Horus at Edfu
  • Enjoy an overnight trip in a traditional felucca on the river Nile
  • 2 days in Aswan to explore the history and sights
  • Marvel at the temples of Rameses and Nefetari at Abu Simbel
  • Wild camp in the Sahara desert of Sudan
  • Guided visit of the Meroe pryamids
  • Wander around the bustling and fascinating city of Khartoum
  • YES, as long as you have an open mind and are prepared to accept the lack of a few home comforts as a price for some real discovery. This is a long journey, through some areas with minimal tourist infrastructure and you need to be prepared. However, it has a well balanced pace and a good mixture of camping with hotels, home stays and hostels.

    Ferðaáætlun

    Eastern Trans Africa & Gorillas

    Day 1 Nairobi

    Border Information: If joining the trip in Nairobi, you will most likely enter Kenya at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (IATA code: NBO). Welcome to Kenya! There will be a group meeting at the joining hotel at 6:00pm. Please do not be alarmed if there is no welcome note, as this will often be a travelling day for the crew who will be joining you. Please note that many of the options listed below will only be possible for those with extra time in Nairobi before the start of your trip with us - please contact the Sales team if you would like to book pre-tour accommodation with us to have extra time exploring Nairobi.

    Day 2 Kericho

    This morning we will drive on to Kericho, throughout this drive you will have sights of the world famous tea plantations in the area.

    Day 3 Jinja

    Border Information: Exit Kenya at Busia, enter Uganda at Busia. Today we have a full day's drive across the border into Uganda as we travel to Jinja, the adventure capital of East Africa!

    Day 4 Jinja

    Today we will have a free day to get involved in the many optional adventure activities available here, such as white water rafting, bungee jumping and boat trips on the White Nile!

    Day 5 Nakitoma

    Today we continue our journey and head north to the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary close to the town of Nakitoma. Here we will have the chance to track rhinos on foot with a local ranger!

    Day 6 Kaniyo Pabidi

    Today we continue to Kaniyo Pabidi in the Budongo Forest, in the southern part of the Murchison Falls NP. Here we will head out for our included chimpanzee tracking walk in the afternoon! Please note that for conservation reasons the maximum group size to track the chimpanzees is 12 people, so if we have a large group we will split in half, one half going on the walk this afternoon and the other half going tomorrow morning.

    Day 7 Murchison Falls NP

    If we had to split the group for chimpanzee tracking, the other half of the group will head out for the walk this morning. When we are ready to continue, we will drive to the central region of Murchison Falls NP to reach our campsite. Please note that the roads leading into and around Murchison Falls are very poor and can be hazardous in wet conditions. If there has been heavy rain recently, it may not be possible to go into the NP beyond Kaniyo Pabidi - this is firstly for safety reasons on the drive in, and secondly due to the risk of extreme bogging that could cause us to miss the gorilla treks further along in our trip. We will always endaevour to reach the NP as per the itinerary; but when this is occasionally not possible, please respect the tour leader's decision in this matter. On these occasions we will be able to utilise this time with spending longer in Lake Bunyonyi.

    Day 8 Murchison Falls NP

    Today, we will head out early in the truck for a included morning of game driving around the northern area of the NP - we will take a local vehicle barge to get over the Nile and pick up a ranger to show us around in search of wildlife! We will return to our campsite for lunch, and then embark on an included launch cruise on the Nile to spot wildlife from the water and to see the spectacularly-powerful Murchison Falls.

    Day 9 Mpanga Forest

    This morning we will make our way out of the NP and head South to Mpanga Forest via Kampala. This is a chance to experience a new environment as we camp in the forest near traditional communities. We will hopefully be able to visit the Mpambire drum making village to experience their ancient traditions and culture.  

    Day 10 Queen Elizabeth NP

    This morning we travel to the Queen Elizabeth NP, beautifully set between the Great Rift Valley lakes of Lake Edward and Lake George, undertaking a game drive on our way to the campsite.  During our time in the park we hope to see elephants, lions, leopards, buffaloes, Ugandan kobs and waterbucks.

    Today we prepare for our Gorilla tracking by heading to Bunyoni and taking jeeps up into the mountains of Bwindi.

    Day 13 Bwindi Impenetrable NP

    Here we will go on what is undoubtedly the highlight of the trip - trekking to see the Mountain Gorillas in their natural forest habitat.  This region is one of the last remaining sanctuaries for the mountain gorilla. No more than 8 people per day can visit any one habituated family, and visits are strictly controlled to minimise the possibility of disturbance or transmission of disease to the animals.  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; however, the sheer thrill of 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 at least 4 hours - uphill and downhill. We can usually get very close to the mountain gorillas, who are placid and gentle, and watching their movements is like seeing a mirror image of yourself! Once you find them, you will stay with the gorillas for one unforgettable hour! When visiting the gorillas you will be assigned a trekking group and time on your permit. The group may be split up into different trekking groups during the day. In Bwindi we will stay in a campsite that occasinally has some very special visitors, the incredible mountain gorillas! Please note that the gorilla permits are paid for in full by the trip kitty - however, we have to purchase the permits in advance on the customers' behalf, so a higher deposit is charged on the trip price to protect us from losing this money in the event of cancellation - please see the notes at the end for further detail.

    Day 14 Lake Mburo

    This morning we will make our way into the stunning Lake Mburo NP. This drive will take us across the equator - a prime moment for some photos!In the afternoon we may have time for a walking safari or even a boat trip on Lake Mburo.We will stay in an incredible campsite close to the lake where you may be lucky enough to see hippos leaving the water in the evening.

    Day 15 Jinja

    Day 19 Masai Mara

    Today we will go out for the full day game driving in the NP before returning to our campsite for a second night.

    Day 59 Simien Mountains NP

    Today marks the start of our 3-day excursion into the Simien Mountains NP.

We will spend 3 nights in the incredible Simien Mountains NP. On each day we aim to provide an option for a long trek (of 5-8 hours), a short trek (2-5 hours) or no trekking. Please note that we must keep a flexible itinerary in the Simien Mountains, as our options will largely be determined by the weather.  Please also note that the camping areas in the NP are very basic, and are essentially wild camps with long drop toilets.
