Best Safari Tours in East Africa

So, which safari trips in East Africa are the best? Here’s a list based on the four countries that we organize our tours to!


Let’s start with the safari tours to Uganda, a beautiful country that has a lot to offer. What are the best safari trips in this East African destination?

  • 3-Day Murchison Falls Vacation – If you love water and want to admire some African fauna, all in a quick trip that won’t take you a week, you should choose this tour. It’s a three-day excursion, with the first day focused on rhino tracking, the second day including a boat trip to the base of the charming Murchison Falls, and a quick game drive to finish the trip.
  • 10-Day Trip to Uganda – Exploring Kidepo & Murchison – For those thrill seekers who want to go on a longer adventure, we recommend our 10-day trip to Uganda. You’ll start with visiting the source of the Nile and the Sipi Falls, and the next days will bring everything you expect from the best East African safari – a few encounters with the local community, several game drives around Kidepo, some hiking trips and a sail to the base of Murchison Falls.


What are the top picks for your Rwanda safaris? We recommend one particular tour:

  • 9-Day Trip into Rwanda – Exploring Akagera, Volcanoes & Nyungwe – This trip will take you to the breathtaking Lake Ihema, then the Volcanoes National Park (where you’ll go gorilla trekking!) and finally, to the Nyungwe Forest National Park. It’s a great safari experience that lets you explore the diversity of Rwanda in just one trip.


Which safaris in Kenya are among the best East African safari tools? Here’s a list!

  • Big 5 Safari – 8 Day Safari Exploring Game Reserve in Kenya – If you want to get a full overview of the beauty of Kenya in a short time, this is one of the best safaris to choose. You start with a game drive in Masai Mara, then explore Lake Naivasha, from which you transfer to the Hell’s Gate National Park. After some chilling there, you get to one more NP – the Amboseli, where you end your day relaxing at our local lodge. This trip is the perfect mix of chillout and adventure, so we strongly recommend it!
  • 4-Day Safari to Kenya – Masai Mara with Big 5 Sightings – If you’re in for some Kenya in a nutshell, this is the perfect trip to choose. You’ll get two full days of exploring the Masai Mara game reserve at an affordable price, enjoying the beautiful landscapes and admiring the fauna in its natural habitat.


What about Tanzania safaris? Here, we have a clear winner – the best safari tour in this part of Africa!

  • Serengeti Safari – 6 Day Trip – This amazing trip will take you to the most memorable locations in Tanzania: the Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti. It’s a 6-day long adventure full of exploration and game drives that you’re bound to remember for the rest of your life!
