This itinerary requires a high level of physical fitness. Gorilla trekking on Day 9 can last between ½ hour to 7 hours depending on the location of the animals. All passengers must be able to hike unassisted at a steady pace through dense forests on uneven, often slippery slopes, at an altitude of up to 8553 feet. Note that visitors that are sick will not be allowed to enter Kibale Forest National Park or Bwindi Forest National Park due to the risk of spreading disease to the primates. During this tour, you may come into proximity to wild animals, which should be considered at your own risk. This program covers a lot of ground each day, and we spend many days driving over roads that are often rough and bumpy in safari vehicles that cannot be air conditioned. Only “bush toilets” are available during game drives. We have many early mornings. Electricity for some lodges is provided by generator and may not be available 24 hours a day. Passengers traveling with CPAP machines must notify Gate 1 Travel in advance so accommodations can be made to run these machines through the night. Occasionally power and back-up generators fail and power will not be available. All passengers traveling into Uganda will be required to carry proof of yellow fever vaccination, and are encouraged to consult with their health care provider regarding malaria prophylaxis. We suggest you check with your health care provider before signing up for this tour. This is a Small Group program. For more information, click here.

It was wonderful! What a surprise Uganda was. The gorilla tracking was harder than I expected (and I am pretty athletic) but I survived.Ella S. Treasure Island, FL
I loved Namibia! Belinda shared her love for her country. The country is beautiful, new looks around every corner. Keegan our driver handled all the bumps with ease and there were lots of bumps on the roads. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see a beautiful unspoiled country.Susan W. Outlook, WA
Our trip was fantastic, everything went smoothly, all of the connections, transfers, etc. were perfect. I cannot say enough positive things about Gate 1 and the travel guides for both tours. We are looking forward to our next tour and will be contacting you sometime early next year.Thomas L. Florence, SC
We had such a wonderful experience on the Kenya Tanzania Safari ... Especially I want to extol the wonders and praises of our driver guides ... All the while they are safely and carefully negotiating the rutted roads in the conservation areas and national parks ... noticing all those subtle signs that indicate wildlife that my eyes would never see. They have so much knowledge and understanding of the animals, the vegetation, the ecosystems, the interactions between animals! I especially commend Yusuf in Kenya and Nurdin Mohammed in Tanzania. Not only do they know the biology and zoology, they are completely conscientious about all of us as passengers and clients ... I want to make sure the company understands what treasures the driver/guides are and how important they are to your customers’ feeling of safety and comfort, but also they obviously enjoy the natural environment and the thrill of showing us these wonders of nature in their homeland. And as we drove through the villages and towns they were able to explain much about the local customs and people. This wonderful experience was made even more wonderful because of Yusuf and Nurdin!Janell L. Nashville, TN
Kenya and Zanzibar were spectacular! It was a great way to relax after the many amazing game drives through Kenya. Our guide, Daniel, was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He explained the culture of Kenyans, the landscape of Kenya along with the habits and habitats of the many animals during the game drives. The itinerary was well planned (time/place), the Land Cruisers were perfect for the drives, the hotels and the "tent hotels" and food was excellent. Zanzibar is an idyllic island with its own history and culture, a learning experience. I would highly recommend this trip, but wait for the direct flights into Nairobi.Constance I. Brooklyn, NY
Hi Caitlin, Our Adventure to Uganda was awesome! Thank you!! We had a great time, everything went really well. Visiting gorillas in the rainforests of Bwindi was of course THE highlight of the trip. We saw chimps as well in their forests and that was thrilling! Our guides Morris and Jonah were exceptional, they took such good care of all of us. Thank you again Gate 1 for an another amazing trip!!! Looking forward to another destination with you guys!!!Larry K. Westmount, QC, CA
Our trip was fantastic - much better than we ever imagined. Our tour manager Belinda was exceptionally informed and accommodating to all of our needs. Can't wait to take off again.Morris S. Bala Cynwyd, PA
We had a terrific trip. Very well organized and paced, which we have come to expect of Gate 1. Botswana, particularly the Okavanga Delta was a real highlight. We may be back for Namibia.Lois Olcott P. Kennett Sq, PA
Outstanding. Very well organized from beginning to end. Excellent accommodations and facilities. Very personable and efficient guides. Very happy with the overall experience.Fred E. Newton, MA
