Great Apes Expedition

Mountanin Gorilla relaxing

Last Chance Safaris is excited to announce the departure of two Great Apes Expeditions to the ‘Pearl of Africa’, Uganda, in the summer of 2022! (July departure FULL, August has availability)


Not only is Uganda home to the greatest diversity and density of primates in Africa, but it also has some of the smallest (Galagos weigh about 2oz.) and of course the largest  (a silverback Mountain Gorilla comes in at upwards of 550lbs). It is a country of outstanding natural beauty with habitats ranging from the semi arid Kidepo Valley where elephant, buffalo and lions roam as they have done for millennia, to the verdant jungle of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest—home to the highly endangered Mountain Gorilla.

Last Chance Safaris will be leading two departures in 2022 to search for Africa’s most celebrated primates and at the same time explore one of Africa’s best kept wilderness secrets. Grant Nel, a specialist guide with over 3 decades of guiding experience will lead the July expedition. Phil Zappala, a dedicated and enthusiastic conservation gladiator, whose safari career has taken him across central and east Africa, will lead the August departure.
