Itinerary

Day 1

Cape Town – Western Cape, South Africa

Our incredible safari starts in cosmopolitan Cape Town, a beautifully picturesque city overlooked by the famous Table Mountain (currently one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World) and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. Prior to departing from here we partake in a tour of the Cape Flats, one of Cape Town’s fascinating townships, paying a visit to some of the local people and community projects in the area. The townships display South Africa’s extensive and turbulent history, as well as its hope for the future, making for an incredibly enlightening experience. It is from here that we begin to make our way north, through South Africa’s Western Cape and the abundant fruit-growing areas of Citrusdal. Our lodging for tonight is situated nearby the Olifants River, overlooking the spectacular Cederberg Mountains. Once we’re done setting up camp, we have an opportunity to sample some of the local wines, allowing us to not only taste the delectable fruits of the region, but also to introduce ourselves properly to the rest of the tour group, enjoying our first night together beneath the starry African skies.

Fishermen, fish traders, and canoe and net makers all ply their trades here, and a typical sight is that of a fisherman in his Bwato (dugout canoe made from a hollowed out tree trunk) fishing on the still lake at the break of dawn. The Lake is something of a marvel to visitors, and has the highest number of endemic freshwater fish species of any in the world.

Day 31 - 34

Zanzibar Island

Aside from all of the wonderfully idyllic sandy palm-fringed beaches, romantic winding cobbled alleyways and lush tropical forests that the exotic Zanzibar offers; it also boasts an intriguing history. Zanzibar was once the base of great 19th century explorers such as John Hanning Speke, Richard Burton and David Livingstone, and at one time was a major trading centre of spices – a trade that is centuries old. In fact, Zanzibaris have traded with the people of the Arabian Peninsula for generations, sailing across the ocean in simple dhow sailboats and relying on the annual trade winds for passage. The Arab influence can be seen in the stunning architecture of Zanzibar, as well as the diverse street stall offerings of the capital, Stone Town. Even the Swahili language itself is a result of the mixing of Arab and African languages and cultures over long periods of time.The island was also once a staging post for slaves purchased from the African interior being detained before shipping to Middle Eastern slave owners. You can hear more about these tales of Zanzibar’s history from almost any local willing to take you on a trip out to Prison Island or even just around the city. Zanzibar’s wildlife is intriguing, as it is the home of the Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey, the Zanzibar Servaline Genet and the possibly extinct Zanzibar Leopard.

Our time spent in in this paradise-like place is not structured, giving you the chance to spend your time however you’d like. One of the best ways to see Stone Town is simply on foot, allowing you to better explore the bazaars for old maritime trinkets and stunning patterned cloths. You can also partake in activities such as visiting mosques, palaces, courtyards and alleyways of the old town. Spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper are grown in nearby plantations of which you are encouraged to take day tours of, dazzling your senses with all of the different tastes and scents available to experience. If you’re the kind of person who leans more toward leisure time spent on the beach, you’re always free to enjoy the gorgeous white sand and sparkling ocean, and to simply spend your time soaking up the sun’s rays.

If you’re looking for a good swim or dip in the sea, head out to the northern beaches to experience the warm and inviting Indian Ocean at its best, where you can try your hand at snorkelling and diving, indulge in some tasty, lavish seafood or just relax beneath a coconut palm with a tasty cocktail and good book in hand.

PLEASE NOTE: Because we leave the truck on the mainland, basic tourist class accommodation and breakfast on Zanzibar is included in the Local Payments, but for the sake of flexibility, lunches and dinners are left for your own account. Usually we spend one night in Stone Town and the following two evenings in the north of the island at one of the beaches. Your Tour Leader will be able to assist should you experience any problems whatsoever.

Trip Highlights: Zanzibar, Zanzibar ferry, Indian Ocean beach

Day 36

Dar es Salaam – Marangu, Tanzania

Today we leave early and travel north to Marangu, set below the flourishing slopes of the remarkable Usambara and Pare Mountains, located in the Eastern Arc Mountain Range. “Marangu” means “full of water” and  and the green surroundings indicates the truth of this name. If the sky is clear today we may be fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of the stunning snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain of 5898m.

Trip Highlights: Eastern Arc Mountain Range
Accommodation: Marangu Camp – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/-570 kms
Approximate Driving Time: 9 hours

Day 37

Marangu – Arusha, Tanzania

Driving past the town of Moshi, we arrive at Arusha – a city situated mid-way between Cape Town and Cairo. Known as the ‘safari capital’ of Tanzania, 2 million people call this area their home. We have some time to explore the town before we head off to our camp outside of the city, at the edge of the Masai plains. In the afternoon we embark on a walk to a local school and clinic, a Masai museum and the wonderful Meserani Snake Park. From here, we have time to prepare for our two night/three day trip to the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. This is an Optional Activity that you can decide on a few days before we begin the excursion. It is offered to everyone, and your tour leader will take payment if you choose to partake. If, however, you choose not to partake, there are shorter activities listed further on that will surely keep you busy and entertained.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 120kms

Day 38 - 40

Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha, Tanzania

Switching to smaller, more game park-friendly vehicles, we drive west across the Great Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbo (‘Mosquito Creek’) and entering the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Heading into the park, we drive around the Crater’s rim and down onto the plains of the Serengeti. A luscious green after the rains, and brown and burnt after the droughts, this area is home to a vast variety of grazing animals, predators and birdlife. Flatter and larger than the Masai Mara, the Serengeti is simply enormous. In fact, the name is derived from the Masai word Siringitu, meaning ‘the place where the land moves on forever’. Here, game viewing is a fantastic activity in which to partake, and spending your nights sleeping in the unfenced campsite where lion and hyena roam freely is an enthralling and extremely memorable experience.

The next day we leave the plains while game driving en route, and after lunch we begin to ascend the outer wall of the Ngorongoro Crater. It is here that we spend the night camping on the rim, where wildlife runs free and where you will definitely need a warm jacket to combat the cold night air. The Ngorongoro, at 326 square kilometres in area, is Africa’s largest intact crater, as well as a World Heritage Site. The spectacular view from the rim (2400 metres above sea level) makes the site from the Crater floor even more enjoyable at approximately 600 metres below sea level. All of the major mammals can be seen here, except for the giraffe who cannot manage the steep slopes leading downward to the floor of the Crater. We descend the almost vertical dirt roads for a morning of game driving and stop for lunch at the top of the Crater for one last magnificent view over the Ngorongoro before heading back to our camp at Arusha.

Trip Highlights: Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater
Accommodation: Serengeti National Park: Bush Camp, Simba Camp, Meserani Snake Park
Meals included: Breakfast x 3, Lunch x 3, Dinner x 3
Distance Covered: +/-250kms each way on days 18 and 20
Approximate Driving Time: Full days including game drives

Day 41

Arusha – Nairobi, Kenya

Following our final night at camp, we head across the Masai Steppe toward the Kenyan frontier. Once we’ve completed formalities at the border post of Namanga, we make our way down the last stretch of road to Kenya’s capital of Nairobi, where we overnight.

Trip Highlights: Nairobi
Accommodation: Indaba Camp – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch
Distance Covered: +/-270kms
Approximate Driving Time: 5.5 hours

Day 42

Nairobi, Kenya

Today is a free day to relax and explore the beautiful sights of the city. There are a number of places that you can visit today, including the Karen Blixen Museum, and the famous Carnivores Restuarant boasting exquisite cuisine, or you could simply choose to hang back and relax at the campsite.

Accommodation: Indaba Camp ‐ Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast
Optional Activities: Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage US$105, Giraffe Centre US$10, Karen Blixen Museum US$20

Day 43

Nairobi – Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya

Kenya, being East Africa’s most popular safari destination, warmly welcomes visitors who have come to witness their beautiful country. The Kenyan capital of Nairobi has grown vastly in recent years, but still maintains a relatively small city centre, as well as a city market that has much to offer. It is recommended that you arrive at least a day before departure in order for you to recover from any jetlag as well as to have some time to yourself in which you will be able to relax and have a chance to see the city. Departing from the gorgeous Nairobi in the morning hours of our first day, we begin our descent into ‘the Great Rift Valley’, a gigantic fissure in the Earth’s surface that stretches from the Red Sea all the way to Madagascar. On the way, we stop at a specific lookout point to drink in the majestic views provided to us by the African landscape.

The overnight stop we take is close to Lake Nakuru National Park, abundant in fauna and flora located on the floor of the Great Rift Valley. The shallow soda lake within the park is home to a wide variety of extraordinary birdlife, specifically flamingos (attracted by the abundance of algae in the lake) that, when gathered in their massive numbers, form a dazzling pink ‘fringe’ around the edges of the water. This resplendent lake also attracts wildlife such as buffalo, lion, black and white rhinoceros, leopard, warthog, baboon, antelope and a large assortment of smaller animals too. We then embark on an afternoon game drive searching for more elusive and diverse wildlife, led by local guides and in smaller safari vehicles in order to obtain a more intimate experience with African nature.

Trip Highlights: Lake Nakuru National Park, Great Rift Valley view
Accommodation: Punda Milias Camp – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals Included: Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 190kms
Approximate Driving Time: 4 Hours

Day 44

Lake Nakuru – Eldoret, Kenya

From Nakuru we continue north through the highlands toward the town of Eldoret,which is en route to the Ugandan frontier. During this day’s journey we cross from the Southern to Northern hemisphere, over the Equator, where we spend some time learning about the significance of the crossing and resting for a bit, giving photographers a chance to best capture a beautiful portion of their trip. We then head to Eldoret, the town whose name originates from the Maasai word Eldore meaning ‘stony river’, inspired by the stony bed of the nearby Sosiani River. The town is the fifth largest in Kenya with the fastest growing population of approximately 193,830. In the night, we reside outside of the town in an exclusive campsite complete with a bar/restaurant area located in a modern day cave, accompanied by river streams, waterfalls and wooden bridges. Here, we put our feet up for the evening and enjoy a sundowner whilst soaking in the warmth from the central, crackling open log fire.

Trip Highlights: Equator crossing
Accommodation: Naiberi Overland camp – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 150kms
Approximate Driving Time: 3.5 hours

Day 45

Eldoret – Kampala, Uganda

Today we make the cross into Uganda – a country that is a rich painting brought to life. With its breathtaking natural scenery and vibrant collection of tribes and cultures, it’s no wonder it was termed by Winston Churchill as the ‘Pearl of Africa’. The locals are warm and friendly people, and the landscape is overwhelmingly beautiful. Our first night is spent camping in Uganda’s stunning hilly capital, Kampala, where you will find bustling roadside traders, quaint local markets and busy matutu (mini-bus taxi) stands.

Trip Highlights: Kampala
Accommodation: Red Chilli Camp – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities Meals included: Breakfast,
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 400 kms
Approximate Driving Time: 7.5 hours

Day 46

Kampala – Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda

Leaving Kampala, we begin our travels toward the marvellous Queen Elizabeth National Park, crossing the Equator once more on the way. Along this journey you can expect to see lush green hillsides, flourishing banana plantations, steep mountains and dense forests, along with herds of Ankole cattle, boasting astonishingly long and curving horns, roaming the roads and paddocks freely. The area in which we camp tonight is just a short distance away from the Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you will have some leisure time to use at your disposal, perhaps by taking a walk in the surrounding areas or mingling with the local community.

Trip Highlights: Equator crossing
Accommodation: Simba Camp – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 400 kms
Approximate Driving Time: 8 hours

Day 47

Queen Elizabeth National Park – Lake Bunyonyi, Uganda

This morning we enter the Queen Elizabeth National Park, where we drink in awe-inspiring views of the mountains that separate Uganda from Central Africa, as well as Lake Edwards and Lake George. Today we game drive, searching for the Uganda Kob – a type of antelope that features on the coat of arms of Uganda. We also search for big game such as elephant, lion, buffalo, spotted hyena, side striped jackals, red tailed monkeys, leopard and hippo, to name but a few. The Queen Elizabeth National Park boasts over 500 bird species and 100 mammal species, making it one of the most bio-diverse national parks in the world. Close to the park, we visit the Kyambura Gorge where we begin our trek to seek out the chimpanzees. Unlike their bigger cousins, the mountain gorilla, chimps live predominantly in the trees, and the experience of seeing these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat is simply incredible. We leave the national park and make our way to the lush and stunning ‘Lake Bunyonyi’ (‘Place of many little birds’).

Trip Highlights: Lake Queen Elizabeth National Park entrance and game drive, Chimpanzee trek
Accommodation: Lake Bunyonyi Overland camp – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 240kms
Approximate Driving Time: Game drive only

Day 48 - 50

Lake Bunyonyi Rest Day or Gorilla Trek Day, Uganda

For the duration of the next 3 days our group will be split. One group will trek to see the mountain gorillas whilst the others spend the day relaxing at Lake Bunyonyi on Day Seven, and vice versa on Day Eight. The group staying at Lake Bunyonyi can look forward to plenty various activities, such as canoeing to visit the surrounding islands, local tribes and villages, or even visiting the local orphanage, bird watching and embarking on tranquil nature walks. Those who wish to simply relax are welcome to do so and are encouraged to catch up on diary entries or homeward-bound postcards.

The group going Mountain Gorilla Trekking has much to look forward to as well. Africa is home to the world’s remaining 700 mountain gorilla population, many of which inhabit the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Occasionally we may even travel into neighbouring Rwanda to seek out these gorgeous creatures. On the day of the trek, the group gathers in the early morning to be introduced to our local guide and tracker. Following this, we walk in small groups trekking through the lush rainforest. This journey can be physically demanding at times due to uneven terrain and the hilly forest itself, but the privilege of spending quality time with a family of these gentle and peaceful primates definitely makes the effort well worthwhile. Even to people who live permanently in the continent, this trek and encounter with the gorillas has proven to be one of the most exciting wildlife experiences in Africa.

The usual protocol once our group has located a gorilla family is to sit down and simply observe the magnificent creatures for about an hour, which is the time set strictly by the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Gorillas are rather sociable, living in groups of between 12 and 20, each usually led by the alpha male – the ‘silverback’, named so due to the silver hair on his back that begins to grow once the male gorilla attains maturity. You will find that the gorillas and their tendencies are remarkably human-like, especially in the social interaction that takes place between the gorilla family members and their play time, in which their children are encouraged to engage. Photographers may take as many photos as they like, but are under strict instructions not to use any flashes. There are also certain restrictions for those who wish to videotape their experience.
Your permit allows for one trek and gorilla viewing with your time limited to one hour. However, because the authorities maintain strict limits on the amount of visitors permitted to view the animals each day, we may spend several days in the area so as to allow for all members of the tour to complete their trek and viewing.

PLEASE NOTE: Depending on the availability of the chimpanzee and gorilla permits, the tour itinerary may vary in day-to-day running order which is based on the brochure itinerary. From time to time, keep in mind that we may have to trek on different days. If, by any chance, our Gorilla trek should be in another neighbouring country such as Rwanda, this may entail extra visa fees (although we shall endeavour to advise you before departure of any significant changes to the tour itinerary. Please take the above itinerary as a guideline only. This applies to days 5-8 of this tour.

Day 51

Lake Bunyonyi – Kampala

Saying goodbye to Lake Bunyonyi we make our way back across the Equator, stopping for photograph opportunities if we did not have any en route to Queen Elizabeth National Park . We pass lush pastures and the northern reaches of Lake Victoria – the largest lake in Africa, all on our way through to Uganda’s capital, Kampala, where we will spend the night. Kampala is known for its great food and entertainment and, if time allows, you are welcome to take the night out to sample some of the local cuisine, as well as enjoy the hospitality and friendliness of the locals.

Day 52 - 54

Kampala – Jinja, Uganda

Today we leave the capital, driving a short distance to Jinja and our camp, situated on the fresh, grassy banks of the longest river in the world – the River Nile. British explorer John Hanning Speke first recognised Lake Victoria as ‘the source of the Nile’ in 1862, settling a long running debate about Africa’s (and the world’s) longest river. From Lake Victoria, the Nile begins its 4132 mile course through Uganda, Sudan and eventually Egypt, leading out into the Mediterranean Sea. Our campsite overlooks a sensational set of rapids known as Bujagali Falls, and it is here that we have the opportunity to try our hands at the art of rafting. This is definitely an exhilarating day for any adventure-seeker who loves the thrill of white water. In the Jinja area you will also have the chance to roll up your sleeves and make a difference at a local children’s school project – Softpower. This project is a locally-run voluntary programme that aims at constructing and improving schools in the Jinja area. Any contributions from you, even just a few hours of painting or plastering, is always welcomed and appreciated. Other activities that you can take part in during your stay in Jinja include mountain biking, quad biking, village walks and for the adrenaline junkies, even bungee jumping!

Enjoy a day free in this magnficent place and the variety of optional activities for you to choose from. On your last day we explore the community and discover the beauty of the Nile river as you unwind n the banks or indulge in other optional activities.
