Itinerary

Days 1 - 3: Fly into the Serengeti

Catch a scheduled flight from Arusha Airport to the Serengeti & check in at a Serengeti Wilderness Camp for 3 nights on a full board basis (excluding drinks).

Renowned for its predators and home to the dramatic wildebeest migration, the Serengeti is one of Africa’s most impressive game reserves. A Serengeti Wilderness Camp is a mobile one, moving around the savannah to put itself in prime position for the main events of the migration – the birthing season, the great treks, and the infamous river crossings. You enjoy two game drives a day, on the lookout not just for the migrating herds but big cats, wild dogs, elephants and giraffe too. Back at camp, your large and comfortable safari tent comes with solar-powered lighting and en suite bathroom.

Day 4: A Night in Arusha

Return by scheduled flight to Arusha & check in at Rivertrees Country Inn for a night.

After breakfast at camp you are transferred back to the airstrip for a flight back to Arusha. You’ll be met and transferred to Rivertrees Country Inn, just 20 minutes from the airport. Formerly part of a grand coffee estate, Rivetrees is the perfect place to recharge batteries – both literal and metaphorical – before the journey to the rainforest and your gorilla trek. There is complimentary Wi-Fi if you’d like to catch up with home as well as a swimming pool set in handsome gardens plus a spa with therapies and treatments available.

Days 5 – 7: Trek for Gorillas

Fly from Arusha’s Kilimanjaro Airport to Entebbe Airport in Uganda; fly to Bwindi Forest & Buhoma Lodge for 3 nights on a full board basis (excluding drinks & gorilla permit/s).

Africa’s equatorial rainforests are a complete contrast to the open plains of the Serengeti. The hilly landscape is covered in thick forest – the Bwindi National Park – and is home to mountain gorillas, monkeys, flocks of butterflies and exotic birds. Buhoma Lodge specialise in gorilla treks – their success rate of finding them is 95% – and they offer a complimentary post-trek massage and boot cleaning service plus a hot water bottle at night. You can pre-purchase a second gorilla permit for the other full day at Buhoma or opt to explore the area and visit a friendly Batwa village.

Day 8: The Journey Ends

Return by air to Entebbe Airport for your onward travel arrangements.

After breakfast and goodbyes at Buhoma Lodge, you transfer back to the local Kihihi airstrip for a scheduled flight back to Entebbe Airport and your onward travel connection or accommodation.

Reviews

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!

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!!!

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!

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.

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.
