This would be our most comprehensive Uganda and Kenya itinerary; if you are looking to do something a little special with your stay in East Africa, this could be the itinerary to consider. The trip takes in the very best safari regions of Uganda and Kenya offering you the chance to see almost every possible animal and ecosystem that you are likely to find in East Africa. We have also carefully selected a range of properties that offer both high levels of quality as well as ideal positions within each region.

In Uganda you will not only have the privilege of seeing rare mountain gorillas in the wilds of their equatorial forest home, Bwindi National Park, but also experience boat cruises and game drives in the very diverse and scenically different Queen Elizabeth National Park. Throughout your stay in the country you will have your own private driver guide who will share with you his knowledge of this beautiful country.

For your time in Kenya, it's a fly-in safari where you will split your time between the north and south of the country, visiting Meru National Park, one of the best locations to view rhino in their natural habitat, and the world-famous Masai Mara. Between July and October the Mara is home to the annual wildebeest migration but year-round the park offers incredible sightings of a host of different species, most famously perhaps, the big cats. Throughout the trip you can expect a diversity of activities, luxury accommodation, superb cuisine and expert guiding.
