East Africa: Drink It In
The Maasai Mara is a vast grassland teeming with animals including lions, cheetahs and wildebeest. Lake Nakuru National Park has an incredible variety of birds plus White and Black rhinos, while Queen Elizabeth National Park is home to hippos, elephants, buffalo, leopards and the elusive tree-climbing lions. Murchison Falls is renowned for its scenic beauty, spectacular falls and abundant wildlife, including elephants, buffalo, Ugandan kobs (antelope), leopards, and over 450 different species of birds. The highlight of the trip is undoubtedly an hour with Mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda.
