What Makes Our Ultimate Gorilla Safari So Exceptional?
- You Won't Find a More In-Depth Primate Itinerary
Many gorilla safaris give you just one day in the
rain forestto track these reclusive animals. But we include four separate gorilla tracking expeditions—two days each in Uganda and Rwanda—to maximize your opportunities for incredible photos. Add wild chimpanzee tracking in Kibale Forest, plus a chance to see golden and colobus monkeys (and others), and you've got the most comprehensive primate safari Africa has to offer.
- Experience the Full Diversity of Africa's Wildlife
While gorillas are our focus, we include wildlife viewing in other areas as well, including iconic big game such as elephants, buffalo, zebra, lions, crocodiles and hippos—and more! Our diverse itinerary features the best of both: primates plus general wildlife viewing on forest treks, 4x4 drives over the savanna,
anda private boat cruise.
- Comfortable Vehicles with a Window Seat for Every Traveler
Get the best possible photos with a guaranteed window seat on board the highest-quality safari trucks. Our state-of-the-art vehicles have features such as multiple roof hatches to enhance viewing. There's no way around it—East Africa's mountainous regions have some pretty rough roads—so full 4-wheel-drive capacity with a top-quality suspension system is a key feature of our vehicles.
- Unique Accommodations Offer Character & Seclusion
Where you stay on safari makes a big difference to your overall experience. That's our focus is small, intimate camps and lodges in nature. We choose our locations for their scenic settings and proximity to wildlife—in contrast to large lodges in busier areas where hundreds of tourists congregate.
- Photo Departures Offer Special Benefits for Photographers
Uganda and Rwanda are among the most beautiful countries in Africa. We've designed our itinerary to include scenic drives between safari locations, offering a chance to photograph the countryside and scenes of rural life. And, crucially important, driving allows you to take more photography equipment, avoiding restrictions on small planes with tight weight limits. Because we do a point-to-point trip from Entebbe to Kigali, we don't do any backtracking, unlike many gorilla itineraries—which means more diversity en route. And finally, expert photo Expedition Leaders are by your side with personalized tips and instruction, from shot composition to follow-up editing—for photographers of all ability levels.
