Let us inspire you start planning your first safari holiday.
There are overwhelming choices nowadays when planning a holiday; it is often challenging to decide which places to visit, what activities to do and when to go on a safari trip. We are here to inspire you, make planning a safari holiday enjoyable, ensure you get what you want, and remove the decision-induced stress in planning your holiday journey.
When to go
The dry season (also considered peak season), with plentiful sunshine between June to August and December to February, is the best time for primate trekking in Uganda and Rwanda.
The best time for viewing the great migration in Masai Mara is between mid-August and late October, when the wildebeest and zebra herds cross the border from Serengeti National Park. A Tanzania safari is excellent from January to the end of September.
Where to go on safari
Since we operate only in East Africa, our specialists are biased towards Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, and Tanzania destinations they understand so well as to give our guests the most memorable experiences.
You must know that two of the pioneer and most popular African safari destinations are in East Africa. The other two offer the most accessible, most spectacular, most authentic forest walks and primates experience on the continent.
Best time for gorilla safari
Mountain gorillas in Uganda & Rwanda live in tropical rainforests at high altitudes where weather highly determines tourism activities. The best time for gorilla trekking is during the dry seasons when less rain is likely to disrupt your day excursions in the tropical jungle.
You’re generally looking at scheduling your gorilla trekking trip to happen between June to August or December to February.
