Combine two of East Africa’s most iconic experiences during your one week tour of Kenya and Rwanda. Follow wildebeest during the Great Migration as they travel through the Maasai Mara accentuated by the surrounding theater of wildlife. Trek through volcanic forests to discover the beauty of active gorilla troops. Your immersive luxury safari will be tailored to your goals to uncover the marvels of East Africa’s untouched wilderness.
Kigali – Arrive in Rwanda
Fly into the charming Rwandan capital of Kigali, a city that feels more like a lush village in the hills than a capital city. You will be greeted by a local guide and transferred north to Volcanoes National Park, one of only two accessible places in East Africa to trek wild mountain gorillas. Wind through The Land of a Thousand Hills as you curve along the forested slopes until the canopy closes in and you are deep into the mystique of the forest. If you could preconceive a landscape for gorillas, then it would look just like this with the wisps of mist as thick forest rolls unbroken across the mountains. Hidden in the foothills of the Virungas Mountains is your first lodge, where a luxurious stone cottage will provide a tranquil space after your journey.
