Gorillas and Gameparks


GORILLAS | GAMEPARKS | LANDSCAPES | CULTURE

As far as close encounters go, it doesn’t get more thrilling than meeting the eye of a mountain gorilla. Along with witnessing chimpanzees jump through the tropical colours of Kibale and hippos and elephants surrounding the remote waters of the Kazinga Channel you get to understand why Uganda is called the ‘Pearl of Africa’. The adventure doesn’t stop there, with the highlights and attractions of Kenya, particularly the wildebeest migration you’ll be embarking on an intimate wildlife encounter of a lifetime.
