#nomadgorillas. – On the 9th February I fulfill a lifelong dream when I join a group of travel writers for the Nomad Tours Gorilla Trekking Safari. Visiting  Rwanda and Uganda.

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
