Optional excursions on Gorillas/Masai Mara trip

I'm booked on the Gorillas and Masai Mara trip dep Jan 7th. I am trying to decide whether to sign up for some of the optional things such as the Balloon ride over Masai Mara etc. Has anyone else had any thoughts? It would be great to know if anyone has already booked any of these.

Hello. I am booked on Gorillas and Masai Mara trip dep 7th Jan. I am going to book myself on the balloon flight in advance but decide on the others when I'm there.


Hi Thanks for that - the balloon trip was the one I knew I might have to book early - but didn't want to be the only one trooping off! The oters look as if you can decide whilst out there so much easier to get a feel for what's best.

Good to hear from someone going - se eyou on the 7th!

Afternoon both,

I saw this thread whilst looking if anyone had posted anything for the trip my girlfriend and I are going on to South America in 2010.

We did this trip last year and so I would recommend booking the balloon flight early as it does get booked up. All other excurisions can be booked whilst you are there. Another word of advice, if you're not into white water rafting or have done it before I would strongly recommend going quad biking at Jinja. We did this with two others from our group; went through local villages, stopped at a local shops for some football with the kinds, visted various rapids on the Nile and then had lunch in the building where we started. Good value for money and got you off the beaten track.

 Have fun!! The gorillas are everything you could hope for and more.....


Thanks for this - enjoy your trip!

Hello again. Have just got my voucher through for the balloon trip...very excited about it...hope you have booked too. Quad biking sounds interesting ... may give that a go ! Thanks for the advice.

I also plan a trip there, what about football in those places? I would really like to play, I read here https://www.mightytips.com/bookmakers/best-horse-racing-betting-sites/ that you can find many interesting places in this location.
