Detailed Itinerary

 

 

Days 1& 2
Kampala / Jinja:
On arrival at Entebbe international Airport we transfer to Kampala for an Overnight and the following morning we drive to Jinja where the river Nile begins its journey to Egypt.  Here we have an opportunity to do several optional activities including the white water rafting, Quad bikes, Canoeing, Sunset Cruise, Village visits etc The itinerary is flexible for this section until we have done the Gorilla trekking. This is because of the challenges of obtaining the Gorilla permits.

Arusha is the ‘tourism capital’ of Tanzania and a base for exploring Northern Tanzania, strategically located between Mt.Kilimanjaro and some of Tanzania’s best National Parks like Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Lake Natron, Tarangire National Park among other attractions.
