DKKU130823 Kenya & Uganda Gorilla Adventure August 23

Postby lil_muse » Tue May 28, 2013 7:14 am

Hi,
Me and my boyfriend have booked onto this trip and having never been to Africa before are very excited :D I noticed that the trip now seems to be fully booked and was wondering if anyone else is looking forward to it as much as we are?

I'm on this trip! It's the last of 3 trips I am doing in Africa (Ultimate Africa).
Super exited to go! My adventure starts the 12th of July in Cape Town! :)

Wow Condylus that trip looks totally amazing! If i had the holiday days i would love to do something like that :) Is most of your trip camping or just the last couple of weeks? Looking forward to meeting you in Nairobi, by that point you'll be an expert on Africa!

Yup it's camping almost all the time! I've travelled a few times before but I never did a camping trip before! Looking forward to the experience.. Yeah I'm doing the longest trip available in Africa, you can check it out on the site. It's Ultimate africa (DAUA trip code). I'll hopefully know some things about Africa by the time I get in Nairobi! :p Where are you 2 from?

Looks totally brilliant! We are from the Isle of Skye, a wee island up in the north of Scotland. What about you? Have you travelled with g before?

Yes I did a tour to Peru 2 years ago and last year I went to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam!
Both with G adventures. Brilliant tours!

Well Vietnam was the lesser of the 3 to be honest! Ha long bay is amazing, but I always had a feeling the locals in Vietnam didn't like tourists. Not like in Thailand where they are all very friendly! 22 more days and I am leaving to South Africa! Can't wait...

Hi Kerry,
I'm not doing a longer trip this time, can only get a certain amount of time off work. What about you? Not too long to go now! :-)
