Oasis Overland offers free Gorilla Trekking Permit

on Africa Overland Tours


Oasis Overland, adventure travel specialist, is offering a free Gorilla Trekking Permit to anyone booking the October departure of selected Africa overland trips, a saving of £495.

The offer is available on four different overland trips, all of which start on 19th October: the 19 day Gorillas and Gameparks, the 40 day or 54 day Apes and Lakes and the 75 day Grand Adventurer. Journeying in the company’s custom built expedition vehicle, travellers will have the opportunity to trek to see Mountain Gorillas in the wild in Uganda.

Oasis Overland’s Africa Operations Manager, Katie Carson says ‘Trekking to see Mountain Gorillas is a highlight of most people’s trip. I did this myself last year and after a two hour trek we were faced with a group of 10 gorillas, including three silverbacks and one baby gorilla. Being stood just over a metre away from gorillas in their natural habitat is just an incredible feeling!’

The Gorillas and Gameparks overland adventure travels through Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. Also included in the overland tour is Lake Nakuru, a National Park in Kenya’s Rift Valley where travellers can see a wide variety of wildlife including lion, hippo, rhino, buffalo and the Lake’s famous flamingos. Lake Naivasha where hippos graze near the campsite at night and the giraffe centre in Nairobi for a very up close and personal experience with giraffes are also highlights, not to mention the opportunity to white water raft down the Nile and meet local communities around Lake Bunyoni.

This 19 day adventure costs £495 plus US$295 local payment. Trekking Permits usually cost £495 meaning a big saving on this trip! Included in the cost are transport, camping fees and some meals as well as being met at the airport and one night’s pre-tour accommodation. International flights, visas and optional activities are not included.

The Apes and Lakes and Grand Adventurer trips continue from Kenya on to Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa, travelling via the Serengeti, Zanzibar Island, Victoria Falls, the Namib Desert and Cape Town.

The free Gorilla Trekking Permit applies to bookings on the 19th October 2015 departure and is subject to permit availability. Contact Oasis Overland before booking to check permit and trip availability.
