9 Day Mountain Gorilla Trekking Safari - East Africa Overland Tour



Starting our 9 day East Africa overland safari in Kenya's capital, Nairobi, we first visit the Masai Mara in search of the "big five" before heading to Uganda for the highlight of this safari, trekking the Mountain Gorillas in the their natural habitat.

The Mountain Gorillas inhabit the rain forests of Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda on the high slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes and to track them and find them among the tangled vines and giant trees is a spine-tingling experience.

Other highlights of this trip are the memorable countryside of Uganda, known as the "Pearl of Africa".
