Uganda and Kenya Beach Holiday

Inspirational safari & beach holiday to Kenya and Uganda

A truly unique trip, take in the very best that Uganda has to offer from mountain gorillas in Bwindi Forest to tree-climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park and, after all the action and long drives, retreat to the Kenyan coast for some well-deserved chill time. In Uganda, together with your private guide you will explore rainforests, savannas and mountains and encounter a host of wildlife. This adventure vacation is as much about the scenic journey as it is about the destinations. 

Visit Lake Mburo, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Queen Elizabeth National Park and Kibale National Park, staying in a highly recommended lodges which are largely small and well located for your activities.  Highlights include tracking gorillas and chimpanzees, game drives and boat cruises in search of big game and interactions with the wonderful Ugandan people. You will then fly to the Kenya coast and travel to Msambweni Beach House & Private Villas, a boutique hotel with a very private 3km stretch of white sands and blue ocean front. A true retreat you may just want to completely relax on the beach, but if you want to go further afield, there’s snorkelling, scuba diving, dolphin and whale watching, and motorised watersports at Kisite Marine Park, not far away.
