East Africa Trip

Jump to last reply

Hello,

We are planning a trip to Africa.
We don't have a set date but were thinking of going end of Dec/Jan to escape the winter in Canada. We want to start in Nairobi, with a safari in Masai Mara, then visit Uganda, then a beach stay in Zanzibar.
I have a few questions, if anyone can share suggestions.

1) Is January an ok time to go on safari? We don't care about seeing the migration - just want to see big game.

2) Where is the best place to see gorillas in Uganda?

3) Any recommendations for where to stay in Zanzibar? (mid-range)

Thanks!
