Gambella - Sudd Migration
Duration: 8 days
Area: Gambella National Park, Anuak and Nuer Villages
Style: classic african safari
With approximately a million White Eared Kob, the Ethiopian region of Gambella and the South Sudan region of Boma-Jonglei, are home to Africa’s second-largest mammal migration. Join us on some of the pioneering expeditions and be one of the first, and only modern-day, adventurers to penetrate these roadless and inaccessible swamps.
The only way to fully experience the region (a huge swamp with no roads !) is with a helicopter. Only in the driest months (March/April), do we “think” this can this be complimented with some land based "game drives" and "nature walks".

Day 2 - 7:
Gambella Mobile Tented Camp,
No safari in Africa is complete without the experience of a few nights out in the wilderness under canvas, or better still, under the stars.
Our camp is lightweight but very comfortable and operated by a small but experienced crew who also cook and serve delicious food and act as waiters and tent stewards, led by an experienced guide.
These camps combine the most important elements of a safari: you have a crew of people to look after you, great food freshly prepared and cooked over an open fire (there’s nothing like a bit of wilderness to boost a healthy appetite). There en-suite flush toilets and hot showers from safari bucket-showers and after winding down and swapping stories around the campfire. At night you collapse gratefully onto your full size wooden bed, in an insect-proof tent. You soon sink into a deep sleep under the watchful eye of the askari.
The huge advantage of a mobile camp is that it takes you to the wilder parts of Africa. In the evenings after you return from your days activities you'll find a blazing fire, kerosene lanterns and bedrolls laid out on the ground, where you can sit and enjoy a welcome drink.
Camping isn’t for the fainthearted or luxury addict - but if you think you might enjoy it - you will love it!
