15 Days East Africa safari will take you to three nations in East Africa, and as part of the safari, you can get an East African Tourist Visa. This safari will take you through a stunning country with a chance to see critically endangered primates (Chimpanzees and Mountain gorillas) in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Kibale Forest National Park. In the savannah parks of Queen Elizabeth National Park and Masai Mara National Reserve, visitors can also anticipate seeing the “big 5” animals (Lions, Leopards, Buffaloes, Rhinos, and Elephants). Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area are two more locations for an unforgettable safari. Additionally, this safari will incorporate cultural excursions to the Batwa and Masai peoples of Kenya and Uganda, respectively. Visit Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania for only 15 Days and discover 50% of the three locations at a comparatively low cost.
Uganda is a landlocked East African country with a diverse landscape that includes the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains and the massive Lake Victoria. Its abundant wildlife includes chimps and rare birds. The remote Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a well-known mountain gorilla haven. Murchison Falls National Park, located in the northwest, is famous for its 43-meter-tall waterfall and wildlife, including hippos. The famous Queen Elizabeth is also an outstanding destination.
Kenya is an East African nation with an Indian Ocean coast. It includes the dramatic Great Rift Valley, lake lands, savannah, and mountainous highlands. Additionally, animals like lions, elephants, and rhinos call it home. Safaris departing from Nairobi, the nation’s capital, travel to the Maasai Mara Reserve, famous for its yearly wildebeest migrations.
Tanzania is an East African nation renowned for its vast wilderness areas. These include the plains of Serengeti National Park, a safari hotspot home to the “big five” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhino), and Kilimanjaro National Park, the location of Africa’s highest mountain. The tropical islands of Mafia and Zanzibar which both have Arabic influences and marine parks with coral reefs and whale sharks are located offshore.
Depending on where you are in Arusha, your safari driver will meet you there and take you to Tarangire National Park, where your Tanzanian wildlife viewing experiences will begin.

When you get to Serengeti National Park, connect to the lodge you reserved for dinner and the night.
Have an early breakfast, get parked, and go for a full day game drive.

In contrast to other lakes, Lake Bunyonyi is free of bilharzia, hippopotami, and crocodiles, and its crystal-clear waters are ideal for swimming. The lake is surrounded by steep terraced hillsides. You can choose to relax at the lodge after lunch, go ziplining for a single fee, or engage in any other exciting activity of your choice.
