Jane Purdie, Athlone’s AFRICAN QUEEN, will be returning to Africa with her 11th Escorted Group since 2008!
Jambo! As you may be aware I was anticipating Fall 2016 as my last escorted trip to Africa! Due to requests for Fall 2017, my arm only needed a slight twist to think of returning! Kenya, is truly amazing with the animal encounters I have experienced there – truly awe-inspiring. A return to Encounter Mara and a new locale in Samburu National Park, is truly exciting! Of course a Visit to the Sheldrake Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe Centre in Nairobi – not to be missed!
This will be my first trip to Uganda – having experience the Gorillas four times in Rwanda, it will be exciting to explore a new country and experience the Gorillas of Uganda!
It is possible to just chose one of the countries. Airfares vary, however, cad$ 1800 including tax round trip for Economy Class, is a safe amount for Budget. If you chose to travel to one Country, it is a perfect opportunity to break your journey one way in Europe and spend some time there as well!
My maximum will be 16 of us travelling! ( and 10 minimum ). Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!
Truly , would love to share Africa with you – it touches the heart like nothing else.
