Overlanding is the only way to see East and Southern Africa! Dragoman have been leading the way in African overland expeditions since 1981, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. The journey between Addis Ababa and Nairobi heads through some of Africa's remotest tribal lands - it is not for the faint hearted, but the rewards of visiting these rarely-visited areas are very worthwhile! We will explore the remote tribal area of the Omo Valley, visit several villages and learn all about the traditional ways of life here. We will then cross into Kenya and take the challenging roads to the lands of the Samburu tribe, where we have a fascinating village stay and an incredible safari in Samburu National Park, home to some of Kenya's rarer wildlife such as the curious gerenuk and Grevy's zebra. We will head through the incredible wildlife area of Lake Nakuru before entering the wonderful country of Uganda, where we safari around Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth National Parks, track chimps on foot, and head out on some optional adrenaline-fuelled activities at Jinja, the source of the White Nile. We then journey deep into Rwanda for one of the world's ultimate wildlife experiences - a face-to-face encounter with the incredible mountain gorillas of Volcanoes National Park. Arriving back in Nairobi, this fantastic and adventurous trip is second to none!
