The ultimate eco luxury safari. Stay in the Sanctuary's original luxurious accommodation at the exclusive Sanctuary Olonana Camp for three nights. This award-winning tented camp is set on a private stretch of the River Mara in the epic Maasai Mara, Kenya's most famous game reserve. The Mara is a great place to view big cats along with the rest of the big five but the biggest attraction is usually the easy access to the Great Wildebeest Migration. In addition to the spectacular game viewing you can also avail of an array of once-in-a-lifetime activities including cultural visits, bush dinners, sundowners, balloon and scenic flights.
After your transfer to Uganda, and an overnight stay in Entebbe, spend three nights at the Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, nestled deep in the Bwindi National Park. Because of its unique location, it's not unusual for gorilla families to pay a visit to your camp. There are also rare forest elephant, giant forest hog and eleven kinds of primates, such as red tailed and blue monkey, black and white colobus, baboons and chimpanzee.
On your gorilla safari with your experienced guide, you will track deep into the forest with your intimate group and once you have located them, you will spend up to a maximum of 1 hour with a family of gorillas. During your time at the Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp you can also spend time at camp relaxing or take a cultural activity such as visiting a local village to learn about their day to day lives or you could take a bird walk as Bwindi National Park boasts over 300 bird species.
