Trip Highlights

  • Stand before a troop of wild mountain gorillas, amazed at how close you get to the world’s largest primates and then return the next day for a second gorilla trekking experience
  • Spend several days exploring the vast grasslands of the Serengeti, in awe at the size of the herds and your intimacy with the predators
  • Helicopter above Victoria Falls and then cruise along the Zambezi River as the hippos come out to graze at sunset
  • Be surrounded by pachyderms in Botswana’s Chobe National Park, home of the world’s greatest abundance of elephants as some researchers believe there are more than 100,000 in the region
  • Descend into Africa’s most surreal environment with a game drive in Ngorongoro Crater, an authentic way to experience Africa’s Big Five
  • Gain a sense of history and perspective in Rwanda’s capital Kigali, where the stories can be heartwarming as well as haunting
  • Experience the thrill of a private concession safari with a couple of days in Botswana’s Linyanti Concession, for a remarkably close view of Africa’s most famous mammals
  • Fly over the epic Okavango Delta, and then settle into a two-day safari in the heart of the oasis, Moremi Game Reserve
  • Make incredible memories as your African adventure is about the journey, and there are many memoirs on route including the baboons and tree-climbing lions of Lake Manyara, the charms of the Land of a Thousand Hills and the rivers that preserve so much life on the continent
