    Great guide, good food, nice bunch of people and good focus on the game parks and gorillas. Lots of driving but the trip notes were upfront about that and lots of chances to upgrade for people who were struggling with the camping.

    Amazing trip. Dreams were made a reality. Gorilla trek was incredible. Balloon flight over the Maasai Mara was breath taking. Visiting the Maasai village was amazing. The Kazinga Channel will leave you in awe... Lots of elephants along the river banks.... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Where will I meet the group?

      The meeting point is at the Kenya Comfort Hotel Suites in Nairobi. The hotel is basic but comfortable and offers wifi, a swimming pool and a restaurant & bar to its guests.

    • Do I need a gorilla permit to do this tour?

      This trip requires an additional non-refundable deposit ( AUD1000, USD1000, EUR800, NZD1250, GBP650, CAD1000, ZAR8000, CHF900 ) in order to secure a gorilla permit. The operator also require full passport details at time of booking. Please note that they need to confirm availability of a gorilla permit if you are booking within 45 days of departure. The additional deposit paid at time of booking will be credited to the final balance of your booking.

    • Will I be expected to assemble my own tent?

      This is a participatory camping trip. You will be expected to set up and take down you own tent as well as assist with food preparation and cleaning. This makes it quicker, easier, more fun and will bring the group closer together.

    • Do I need to be in good physical shape to do this tour?

      Tracking gorillas in the dense forest can sometimes be wet, muddy and uncomfortable. The terrain is by no means easy either, so it can be pretty strenuous and often humid. But the sheer thrill in coming across a habituated group of gorillas, dominated by a great male silverback, more than outweighs any difficulty. You need to be prepared and fit enough to walk up to 4 hours - up and down hill.

    • Does this tour include the option to visit the Ngamba island?

      Unfortunately there is no mention Ngamba Island in the trip notes.
