Everything we do is tailor-made; our itineraries are just suggestions to give you an idea of what is possible. Please contact us so we can tailor the perfect holiday exclusively for you.

Gorilla tracking certainly can get the heart racing – not only are you face to face with endangered mountain gorillas, but you’ll also be trekking through the tropical rainforest at altitude. Combine this with a volcano climb in the iconic Virunga Volcano range, hiking to ancient caves, and walking and canoeing trails between lodges and you have all the ingredients for an active trip from start to finish. If that’s not enough, spend a few days in Jinja, Uganda’s adrenaline capital, with the chance to tackle huge white water rapids or explore on quad bikes before adding some time to relax at the source of the Nile surrounded by dramatic views as the river rages by will round-off a fantastically adrenaline-filled trip.

If you don’t have the time and/ or budget to fit everything in, then just speak to Catherine and she will happily tailor this adrenalin-fuelled itinerary around your specific requirements.
