      Written on November 5, 2009

      I went on the Gorillas and Gameparks trip in July 2009 which was 19 days in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. I have nothing but praise for Oasis who delivered a fantastic trip on a budget. I would describe it as more of an adventure than a holiday but I imagine that is a reflection of overlanding in Africa in general! Oasis is for you if you're looking for an operator who skimps on the luxuries but not on the essentials. The truck was in excellent condition, the tents were hardy and roomy (though they did leak a bit on the one occasion that it rained really hard!), the cooking equipment was good quality and the seating area on the truck was well set out. The music system was a little flaky and often cut out when we went over a particularly big pothole but really it wasn't much of a problem! The itinerary was great and we only had about three really long driving days, but you're never going to eliminate this when trying to cover such huge distances. Every evening there was a different cook group on duty (groups of three decided by the group leader at the start of the trip) and this worked out fine. The cook group also went shopping with the group leader to help buy food for dinner. There were some really early mornings but that means you reach your destination quicker. The group leader was fantastic; did all the hard work at border crossings, was very knowledgeable about where to go shopping etc, and generally looked after us very well without being too much of a school teacher! The driver was great too; always got us safely from A to B and helped out when needed. If I have one criticism it is that there isn't enough food! But then I have a big appetite. And it was Africa where food is often hard to come by. There was plenty for dinner but not enough for breakfast and often not enough for lunch. Often it was possible to buy snacks along the way and I would recommend grabbing these whenever you can. Oasis has a strict food budget to keep the price of the trip down but I would have gladly paid extra for a bigger breakfast! We went to some truly magical places and I have only fantastic memories, so I can thoroughly recommend Oasis!

        Tips

      • June 1, 2016

        What is included in the tour?

        You get great things included in this cost, for example you would go on a safari around Lake Nakuru National Park, which not so many people have heard of. This means there are less vehicles competing in the park, making the safari a more unique experience, plus there is so much wildlife to witness over there - lions, hippos, water buffalo, white rhinos, black rhinos, not to mention the giraffe and all the birdlife.

        Camping on the edge of lake Naivasha is also part of your trip, where you can often hear the sounds of hippos from your tents! In Uganda you get to go to a place where you stay on the edge of the White Nile (again not a bad view to wake up to!)
