Itinerary

Days 1 – 3: Into the Forest

Arrive at Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport & connect with a domestic flight to Kihihi. Transfer by vehicle to Bwindi Lodge in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for 3 nights on a full board basis.

Set overlooking the leafy canopy of the forest, Bwindi Lodge has been designed to maximise your rainforest experience. The highlight is of course your gorilla trek. Accompanied by expert guides, you hike into the light-dappled interior of an ancient African forest in search of a gorilla family, content to allow us an hour of their company. But there’s time to explore further; enjoy guided nature walks, birding trips and cultural encounters with the Batwa forest people, once hunter-gatherers in this wild landscape. Back at camp you can swop gorilla stories around the fireplace or sit and watch monkeys and birds from the comfort of your private veranada.

Days 4 – 6: Land of the Samburu

Fly back to Entebbe & then to Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta Airport. Assisted transfer to Wilson Airport & a flight to Saruni Samburu, set close to the Samburu National Reserve. Check in for 3 nights on a full board basis.

From the dripping rainforests to the rocky, arid landscape of northern Kenya: the Samburu National Reserve is one of Kenya’s less-visited wildlife destinations but is home to excellent wildlife ranging from the unique ‘Samburu Special 5’ to elephants, lions and leopards. You’ll be based at the intimate and elegant Saruni Samburu, sitting in a private concession and offering activities ranging from game drives and guided walks to cultural tours and spot-lit night drives. A special highlight is the traditional outdoor dinner, served under the stars and to the accompaniment of Samburu songs and dance.

Days 7 – 9: The Mara Plains

Fly from Samburu to a private Masai Mara conservancy & either Saruni Wild or Saruni Mara, depending where the wildebeest migration is. Enjoy 3 nights on a full board basis.

A private setting gives you the advantage of game drives in both the conservancy and the main Masai Mara Reserve itself, assuring you of amazing wildlife sightings regardless of season. But it is for the wildebeest migration that the Mara is best known and by having a choice of two accommodations, you are guaranteed front row seats to the biggest show on earth when a million wildebeest roll onto the Mara plains between July and November. Knowledgeable Maasai guides lead the way, and you’ll also have the option of a hot-air balloon safari, an unforgettable experience and followed by a champagne breakfast on the savannah.

Day 10: The Journey Ends

Fly from the Masai Mara back to Nairobi. A driver will take you to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your onward connection.

There’s time for a game drive or a visit to a rhino sanctuary before you fly back to Wilson Airport in Nairobi. Depending on the time of your arrival, you will either be transferred straight to Jomo Kenyatta International or via a restaurant for dinner. If you’d like to finish this safari with a relaxing few days on an Indian Ocean beach, simply let us know and we will arrange a Kenya beach add-on.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Lukas (Germany)
Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.
