While on gorilla trekking in Uganda, you will both be captivated by the spectacular natural beauty of mountain slopes enveloped in lush vegetation inhabited by beautiful gorilla families. It is a wonderful experience to see these great primates undisturbed in their natural setting.
Enjoy half of the world’s total gorilla population living in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Gorillas can be tracked year-round, although they are easier to track in the dry season. An incredible experience is for you to appreciate and witness the magnificence of the gorillas with someone you love.
The hike requires a reasonable amount of fitness through the spectacular rain forest and bamboo covered slopes of the park, accompanied by expert guides and trackers. The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of a magnificent silver back and his family, your journey will be well worth the effort.
When sighted, visitors will be guided to within seven meters of the gorillas. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rain forest, knowing you are in the company of these rare creatures. You are allowed an hour with the gorillas before returning to the base station. What a wonderful experience to get during honey moon.
Conclude this Uganda Kenya safari with the wildlife encounters in Kenya. Enjoy a private game drive in the open bush watching elephant and lion roam free, sip Sun downers under a blood orange horizon, and take a romantic dip in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. There’s no better way to celebrate your becoming one than a Kenya honeymoon wildlife safari.
From iconic parks like the Masai Mara, Amboseli and Tsavo to lesser-known parks like Samburu National Reserve and Lake Naivasha, Kenya offers a breadth of safari experiences for honeymooners. Add on a spectacular hot air balloon ride over the African plains and a laid back stay at one of Kenya’s comfortable Indian Ocean resorts, and you will have experienced a complete Kenya honeymoon package.
Spend days with your guide in a 4×4 jeep exploring the world-famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. You will experience unlimited game drives which will introduce you to Africa’s Big Five along with hundreds of other species, including giraffe, cheetah, hyena, gazelle, warthog, impala, klipspringer, and more.
The Mara, as it’s known by locals, is home to the Great Migration where thousands of wildebeest and zebra traverse the Savannah in search of greener grazing pastures in a jaw-dropping spectacle of survival.
Over the course of your stay in the Mara, you’ll not only see the Great Migration (if your honeymoon is July – October), but you can pay a visit to the Mara River to see hippo and crocodile, spend time relaxing at your lodge, call upon a Maasai village to meet the local villagers, and take an exciting hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara to view the roaming herds and wide-open spaces from above.
After your adventurous safari in Kenya bush, if you wish you can head to the historic stone city of Zanzibar. This is the main island of a necklace of small islands. Here, on palm-peppered beaches, you can enjoy your favourite cocktail as you watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean.
