The Bale Mountains National Park, an eight-hour drive south from Addis Ababa, is home to some of Ethiopia’s rarest wildlife including its most celebrated resident, the Ethiopian wolf.

See the Gorillas of Bwindi National Park
Why not take a mountain gorilla trek and experience the magic of seeing these creatures up close in the wild, observing first-hand their natural behaviour in their native habitat.
As well as seeing Gorillas, as Uganda is a uniquely lush destination, you can see lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rainforest undergrowth in the afternoon.
Uganda is the only safari destination whose range of forest primates is as impressive as its selection of plains antelopes. Besides the wide biodiversity, Uganda is also blessed with a vast bird population of more than 1,000 species.

Spot the Big Five in Kenya
At the heart of East Africa, straddling the equator, is a land of wildlife documentary heaven and a sunbather’s paradise! The country plays host to the largest animal movement in the world during the annual migration into the Masai Mara, which is home to the ‘big five’ – elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard, and has a heritage and culture which fascinates all those who visit. Experience Kenyan wildlife as it happens, right in front of you. And, at the end of the day, relax in style at one of the fabulous fine African safari lodges.
