ITINERARY

Day 1 - Arrive Entebbe, Uganda
Arrive in Entebbe, Uganda, which earns its nickname, the “Pearl of Africa,” with stunning scenery. Transfer to your hotel for an evening at leisure.

Day 2 - Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
This morning, board a private boat to Ngamba Island, home to a sanctuary for orphaned and confiscated chimpanzees. Enjoy a private visit with the team who care for the fascinating simians, viewing their social behavior up close. Return by private boat to Entebbe for lunch, before boarding your private charter flight to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. On arrival, continue to your accommodations on a scenic drive from the Rift Valley to the mountains of Bwindi. Tonight, gather for a welcome dinner.

Day 3 - Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Begin the first of two days of gorilla trekking with an early morning hike through the park’s dense vegetation to seek out the groups of endangered mountain gorillas living there. Once the gorillas are located, settle in for an unforgettable visit, observing the gentle and expressive creatures up close. Watch mothers holding their infants and scampering toddlers getting reined in by an attentive father protecting his family. Return to camp this afternoon for the remainder of the day at leisure. This evening, savor a Chef ’s Table experience, sipping a cocktail while a chef demonstrates how to make one of the delicious dishes local to the Bwindi region of Uganda, which you sample before dinner.

Day 4 - Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After another exciting trek to see gorillas, return to camp this afternoon and enjoy one of these Design Your Day activities. Visit a Bike Shop Supported by A&K Philanthropy. Meet the amazing women who run this shop and learn how they maintain the bikes. Meet with Women from the Local Area at the Bwindi Community Hospital, who teach local sewing classes. Set Out on a Guided Forest Walk on the Munyaga waterfall trail — be on the lookout for rare forest elephants and primates such as colobus monkeys. Return to your camp for dinner.

Day 5 - Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Board your privately chartered flight to Serengeti National Park, via stops at customs in Uganda and Tanzania, taking in the incredible vistas and intimate viewing afforded by low-level flight. Early this afternoon, arrive at your luxurious camp, which features the largest, most impressive tented en-suites imaginable, each with amazing, uninterrupted views over the Serengeti. Then, set out on a game drive across the 10,000 square-mile Serengeti, a habitat to countless wild species. Finish your day in classic safari style with a refreshing Scenic Sundowner, sipping cocktails while taking in the incredible atmosphere just before dusk.

Day 7 - Serengeti National Park
Enjoy two days of morning and afternoon game drives through the vast landscape, observing the timeless circle of life.

Day 8 - Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
Board your privately chartered flight to the Masai Mara Game Reserve via stops at customs in Tanzania and Kenya. Revel in the views of the expansive plains and, weather permitting, get an up-close look at the wildlife with some low-level flying by your skilled pilot-guides. Upon landing, settle into your luxurious camp, before immersing yourself in the vast Mara on an afternoon game drive. Among the many species you may encounter are the topi (an antelope found primarily here) as well as hippopotamuses, warthogs, hyenas and an abundance of bird life. Your arrival here is timed to coincide with when the Great Migration is historically in the Masai Mara, increasing your opportunity to witness one of nature’s greatest spectacles. Tonight, relax in your fabulously appointed en-suite tent, watching the African night sky from your huge wooden deck or private hot tub, basking in panoramic views and 24-hour butler service.

Day 9 - Masai Mara Game Reserve
Rise before dawn for a hot air balloon adventure that takes you soaring over the vast, wildlife-rich Masai Mara, viewing game from a fresh new perspective. Then, touch down for a breakfast in the bush. This afternoon, with help from your expert driver-guide, and a little patience, you may sight a leopard retrieving a kill from the branches of an acacia tree or elephants protecting their young on an afternoon game drive. You may also glimpse Maasai tribesmen traversing the plains or herding goats and cattle, pursuing the nomadic existence they have embraced for centuries.

Day 10 - Masai Mara Game Reserve
Today, again enjoy morning and afternoon game drives as well as the option for a walking safari. Also visit a school on the edge of the Masai Mara for an A&K-exclusive experience, taking part in the setup of a LifeStraw Water filter that purifies drinking water for students and teachers, a project sponsored by Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy.

Day 11 - Depart Nairobi
Fly to Nairobi by private charter for an afternoon at leisure in a dayroom reserved for you. This evening, transfer to the airport and depart.
