Coming face to face with a gorilla in the wild is one of those exhilarating, heart-in-mouth moments that you’ll remember forever. As is the elating feeling of crossing the finishing line of a marathon. This bucket-list-ticking holiday does BOTH, and this is no ordinary marathon. Far from it. Not only does it cut out all the stress of paperwork and rejected applications, but you’re running through the vast African landscape with local children and grazing wildlife for support. There’s also a week of fundraising to enjoy, complete with football tournaments, pool parties and amazing community projects. With luxury glamping and safaris thrown in too, this is one epic and worthwhile whirlwind. Untamed primates and wildebeest-dodging marathons just add to the adventure…

  • Enjoy safari life in beautiful national parks, including the home of awesome tree-climbing lions
  • Glamp in gorgeous safari tents with infinity pools
  • Sip sundowners looking out across Lake Mburo National Park
  • Trek through the jungle with expert rangers for an unforgettable encounter with wild gorillas
  • Visit the Masaka Vocational Rehabilitation Centre for disabled youths and help build a new playground
  • Support the Masaka community with a range of incredible projects on Make a Difference Day
  • Help host a lively Fun Day for local children
  • Get active during the Uganda vs Rest of the World football tournament
  • Make a splash at a pool party in the fun build up to race day
  • Run either a marathon, half marathon or 10k through incredible African scenery (without the hassle of ballots and limited spaces)


Day 1: Land in Uganda & Explore Entebbe

Step off the plane in Entebbe International Airport and prepare for a holiday like no other. Gorilla trekking and marathons await you, yet today you’ll enjoy a gentler introduction as you get to know the solo travellers you’ll be sharing this epic fortnight with. You’ll be transferred from the airport to your hotel, where the choice is yours to either explore the lively lakeside town of Entebbe or laze at your hotel on the shores of Lake Victoria. Then unite for a welcome meal with your new Flash Pack family, here’s to beginning a new adventure.

Day 2: Safari time in Queen Elizabeth National Park

Wake up to views across Lake Victoria and enjoy breakfast with your fellow Flashpackers. Today you’re heading to Queen Elizabeth National Park where volcanic ‘explosion’ craters are spread across the savannah and lions hang in trees, no big deal. It takes around 6 hours of driving across this scenic Pearl of Africa to reach this reserve, yet as soon as you glimpse the views from your lodge’s swimming pool then this will be a distant memory. Overlooking the Kazinga channel, you can watch on as elephants and buffalos drink from this watering hole like a scene straight out of a David Attenborough documentary. The afternoon is yours to enjoy an optional safari drive or boat cruise along the Kazinga Channel, you’ll be nonstop wowed by stunning spectacles either way.
