Day 1 :Mahali Mzuri, Masai Mara (Mon, 8 October)

  • Masai Mara

The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The undeniable highlight of the Masai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, elephants, giraffes, gazelles and eland can also be spotted in the reserve. Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential.

  • Day Itinerary

Leaving the buzzing Nairobi behind, climb the nearby escarpment to the first of many viewpoints where you can admire the Great African Rift Valley. Descend into the land of the Massai as you make your way to Mahali Mzuri

  • Overnight: Mahali Mzuri

View iBrochureMahali Mzuri is a tented camp developed by Sir Richard Branson as part of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy.

Day 4 :Lake Victoria Serena Resort, Entebbe (Thu, 11 October)

  • Entebbe

Situated on a peninsula in Lake Victoria, the former seat of Uganda’s government, Entebbe is just a short drive from the current capital and offers plenty to keep visitors amused. This charming town features tree-lined streets and serves as an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area. Tourists can look forward to spending days on beautiful beaches along the banks of Lake Victoria, stroll through the fields and forests of the magnificent Botanical Gardens, or pay a visit to Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, a haven for country’s orphaned chimps.

  • Day Itinerary

Cross the border into the small, yet striking, country of Uganda. Admire the richness of this landscape that remains as yet largely unaffected by mass tourism. Arrive at the capital, Kampala, where you’ll spend the night.

  • Overnight: Kibo Safari Camp

Styled to replicate the lines of a classically rustic Roman villa, which might just as easily stand amid the sunflowers of the Tuscan Hills, as on the shores of Africa’s largest lake, the Lake Victoria Serena Resort is the latest addition to the Serena East Africa Portfolio.
Rising above white-terraced rose gardens, which descend through water cascades and fountains almost to the shores of Lake Victoria, this tranquil resort hotel near Entebbe has been positioned so as to offer both a contrast and an extension to the 5-star profile of the flagship Kampala Serena Hotel, This ensures that the Serena portfolio embraces all aspects of Uganda’s social and corporate life.
A gracious terracotta and cream palace, the central citadel is encircled by broad café and cocktail terraces, where cushioned sofas invite relaxation. Above the marble reception, where a Roman fountain plays, white-arched galleries rise to a clear glass atrium, through which shafts of light illuminate the fountain courtyard below.

Beyond the mosaic frescoes of the main restaurant, a clock tower rises above the pool-deck where colonnades of white arches offer the perfect frame for the hazy blue of the lake and the encircling green of the Lweza Hills. Widely spaced among the rose gardens, clusters of pastel-painted villas offer a choice of rooms and suites, all with panoramic lake views. Basis

Day 5 :: Buhoma Lodge, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest (Fri, 12 October)

  • Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Located in southwestern Uganda, the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is said to be Africa’s oldest rainforest. It is world-renowned for its excellent gorilla-sighting opportunities. The rugged landscape features dense jungle, cascading waterfalls, sparkling mountain streams, deep valleys and steep ridges. This untouched forest has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its breathtaking natural beauty and unique ecological significance. Aside from the amazing gorilla interactions, there are other drawcards such as a network of forest walks, over 340 species of bird to spot and a variety of butterflies. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the spectacular Virunga Volcanoes.

  • Day Itinerary

Leave Kampala early as you head west, deeper into Uganda, and arrive at Lake Bunyoni, the deepest Crater Lake in Africa. This will be your base from which you can choose to do the gorilla trek. The nature of the trek depends on the availability of permits and the location of the gorillas, and will take place either in Mgahinga or Bwindi National Parks in Uganda.

  • Overnight: Buhoma Lodge

Buhoma Lodge commands spectacular and uninterrupted views of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park home to the rare and elusive Mountain Gorilla. We offer a top quality, intimate lodge for our guests’ enjoyment in this area.

An elevated lounge area, complete with bar and dining facilities, offers a cosy, comfortable environment, to discuss the day’s activities around the fireplaces which add atmosphere and warmth in the cool evenings. Meals are freshly prepared with many local ingredients, offering a balance of international and locally flavoured cuisine with meals being of several courses. The bar has a selection of local and imported beverages and the friendly local staff will attend to your needs. Full board.

The immense, calm waters of the Zambezi River lend themselves to leisurely boat cruises amongst the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding wilderness. From your lodge you will be taken to the jetty and begin your sailing journey upstream from the Victoria Falls. As you peacefully drift along the river you can admire the splashes of colour that the setting sun paints in the sky as well as watch the wildlife that congregates along the river banks in the coolness of the evening.

Day 12 :Victoria Falls

– Breakfast
– Marvel at the wonder of natural forces with a helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls. Your 12-minute adventure will get your heart racing and your eyes captivated on the scenes below as you take to the skies and begin your flight over the Zambezi River. This river is the fourth longest in Africa and surrounded by pristine wilderness that is especially beautiful to observe from above, with many islands and channels through which the crystal-clear water winds its way. The Batoka Gorge, lying just below the Victoria Falls, showcases stunning, deep chasms that cut into the earth before you arrive at the highlight of your trip, the falls themselves. This flight is often referred to as ‘the flight of angels’, and as you float through the misty spray and rainbows created by the thundering falls you will feel as if you are indeed in heaven. If a helicopter is not available your flight will take place in a plane.
