Tailormade African holiday details

The Brief

A couple of repeat guests looking to cross the Masai Mara off their bucket list of African adventures. The famous mountain gorillas were also a must, and having trekked for gorillas in Rwanda before, the couple were looking to experience more of a challenge this time around.

Our safari specialist and founder Jono worked to put together a trip that could exceed the excitement and adventure their previous safaris. Uganda was the perfect choice for the gorilla trekking, as it offers a more challenging trek in the wild jungle of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. The Mara North Conservancy was chosen for its year-round, fantastic wildlife viewing.

Guest Feedback: Gorillas and Mara Wildlife Safari

We had yet another fabulous trip organised by Encompass! We hadn’t been to a camp in Kenya before and thoroughly enjoyed it. Kicheche camp was great, as were the camp staff and our guide.

We then went onto Uganda for a two day trek into the gorillas. Having walked to see the gorillas in Rwanda in 2012, I found the trek in Uganda more challenging but once again amazing! Once again thank you to the whole team that made our 3rd trip to Africa just as special as our 1st in 2012!

We will be heading to Namibia in 2020 so will be in touch to start planning that in the not too distant future. Thanks once again!
