My route will take me from Johannesburg to Kigali, Rwanda on 5 February, where I plan to spend two nights. Then a flight to Kampala, Uganda to join the group before travelling to Lake Bunyonyi together. It is here that we join the trek to see the gorillas. Then Queen Elizabeth National Park for two nights before returning to Kampala. I’ll overnight in Entebbe on the 15th Feb, my Birthday, taking a flight home on the morning of the 16th.
These are my travel*ling companions if you’d like to keep up to date with them too. Our group will be hosted and part sponsored by Nomad Tours.

Follow the #nomadgorillas hashtag for regular updates from all of us. Counting down with much excitement.
Also honouring the great Dian Fossey as the 16th would have been her 80th Birthday. Respect and gratitude for all the work she did and much support for her Gorilla Fund.
