Trip Report This Hand Is In Africa!

Jump to last reply

"Finally"....about everything! Finally I made it to Africa! Finally the journal is done! Finally my pictures are posted! and Finally...
It was so awesome! My dream trip involved going to both Uganda and Tanzania; spending 8 days in Uganda and 10 days in Tanzania in November 2009.
We planned for almost 2 years deciding where to go, what to see, how much to spend, who to book with and when to see it. We allso went back and forth with numerous people that wanted to go; we ended up with just the 2 of us.
We booked our trip through Go2Africa. They were great. In the middle of everything we had to switch our contact but both really worked with us to make sure that we had all of our questions answered and all of our requirements met.
Go2Africa does not do their own tours so we were booked with Volcanoes Safaris for Uganda and Rangers Safaris for Tanzania. In Uganda we were in with a tour and had 2 others in the vehicle with us and another vehicle of 3. There we hit the following hotels/lodges and participated in the following activities:
Hotels/Lodges:
Laico Lake Victoria Hotel
Ndali Lodge outside of Fort Portal and Kibale
Mweya Safari Lodge in Queen Elizabeth Park
Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge
Parks/Activities:
Entebbe – Botanical Gardens
Kibale – Chimp Trekking
Bigodi Wetland - walk
Queen Elizabeth (Kyambura Gorge) – Chimp Trekking
(Kazinga Channel) – Boat Ride
(Ishasha) – Game Drive
Bwindi – Gorilla Trekking
In Tanzania we did a private tour with Rangers. I worked with Go2Africa to pick the places we wanted to see and lodges where we wanted to stay. There we hit the following hotels/lodges and participated in the following activities:
Hotels/Lodges:
Mountain Village
Tarangire Safari Lodge
E Unoto Retreat
Ngoronogoro Serena
Migration Camp
Serengeti Serena Lodge
Parks/Activities:
Tarangire National Park – Game Drives
Lake Manyara – Game Drive
Gibbs Farm – Farm tour and lunch
Iraqi Cultural Tour
Ngorongoro Crater – Game Drive
Olduvai Gorge
Serengeti – Game Drives
Hippo Pool Walk at Migration Camp
Balloon Ride
We then spent 2 days in Amsterdam on our way home.
