Visiting 2 countries: Kenya, Uganda

Go all-out Tarzan on this unbelievable Gorilla Encounter expedition, packed with more action than you can poke a banana leaf at. This short African safari starts and ends in Nairobi, with an optional jungle trek in neighbouring Uganda. Get up close and personal with a family of wild mountain gorillas, track chimpanzees in Kyambura Gorge and check out the fabulous flamingos at Lake Nakuru. With so many memorable animal encounters, you’ll be giving David Attenborough a run for his money.
