HI I'm going on the Gorilla and Masai Mara trip in August. Can anyone tell me  if ill be able to get an internet connection and also whats the mobile connectivity like? Is it possible to buy a local sim card?

I went in 2011 and had relatively good GSM coverage everywhere except Rwanda, where service was pretty non existant outside of Kigali (where the hotel has Wifi anyway)  I was able to get good data coverage in Kenya - although not the Mara.  Uganda is patchy but the bar at Jinja had free wifi. 

 You should be able to pickup a local SIM pretty much everywhere you stop - I'd say with certainty in Nakuru town - if you ask your tour leader they'll be able to help.

 Hope this helps - even if it's a little out of date and gerneral!
