African Safari Holidays
An African safari holiday should be on everyone’s wish list of life’s greatest adventures. In Swahili, the melodious everyday language of East Africa, the word itself translates as “going on a journey”. In the age of Hemingway and Karen Blixen this meant going upcountry, setting off with a tent and a rifle into the back of beyond where the wild things are. Now the day of the hunter is done. Guns are out. Cameras are in and ecotourism is the buzzword in the bush, offering a gentler but no less thrilling introduction to the last place on earth where wildlife exists in its old abundance.
But the reasons for going on safari have not changed. The need to reach out and touch the wild, to spend time in the sun and under the stars and come face to face with Africa’s storybook animals, not behind bars but moving free as the wind across the savannah – these are what make Scenic Trail Ventures' Africa Safari holidays like no other.
So where should you go for your first taste of Africa safari life? Africa is so vast, its horizons so wide. Some of its big-game strongholds are the size of small countries. But if you are planning a once-in-a-lifetime sojourn in the bush it has to be East Africa with Scenic Trail Ventures.
Nowhere are animals so visible as on the high plains of the Maasai Mara, Serengeti and Murchison Falls, the thick jungles of Virunga Massive you trek the giant Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Volcanoes and of course the sight of the land itself is quite something. To look down into the immense bowl of the Ngorongoro Crater is to stand at the gates of heaven. The people, languages, food and culture, the narrative does not do any justice to its experience.
Ease of access makes East Africa a natural favourite for first-timers. If you catch an overnight flight from Heathrow you can transfer to a light aircraft next morning and be in the bush in time for brunch. Such things are possible in East Africa because East Africa's safari industry is backed up by an efficient tourist infrastructure with a dazzling choice of camps and lodges to suit all budgets. This is, after all, where modern safaris were invented back in the Twenties.

WHAT HAPPY TRAVELLERS SAY ABOUT US
We did a combination of Gorilla trekking in Bwindi (stayed in Silverback Lodge), Land Safari & River Safari in Queen Elizabeth Park (stayed in Bush Lodge) and Chimpanzee trek. It was a truly amazing experience from start to finish. Alosious was very responsive and helpful as we were booking and our guide Ali was friendly, knowledgeable, and an all around great guide and host. I would recommend this company without hesitation. My favorite parts of the experience were the Gorilla trekking and the River Safari. Magical.
Hard work getting to the gorillas but the guides are really helpful and take account of individual abilities. They take time to get to know each member of the group and use everyone's Christian name. You get at least 1 hour with the gorillas if you can keep up with them through the jungle.
We booked a seven-day tour including gorilla and chimpanzee tracking programs. Ali, our tour guide, was one of best tour guides I have seen. He was willing to provide us with any necessary help and was able to explain to us about all aspects of Ugandan culture as well as wildlife in fluent English.
Wow! What an incredible experience. We met our guide Ali at Entebbe airport for the long drive to Bwindi. Ali was such a gracious host, professional and knowledgeable, he really made the whole experience so enjoyable. He taught us so much along the way about the local communities, languages and culture and organized everything so we could just enjoy the trip. The gorilla experience was amazing. Being so close to them in their natural environment is something we will never forget. When we were ready to leave for our next destination, we wished Ali could come with us.
