Trip Highlights

  • Immerse yourself in the beautiful interactions of a wild mountain gorilla troop as you trek through the thick rainforest and spend an hour with the world’s largest primate species
  • Explore the wonders of the savanna with game drives in Akagera National Park to track lions, rhinos and the other giants of East Africa
  • Journey into the Congo Basin rainforest and discover the remarkable monkeys and mangabeys in Nyungwe Forest National Park
  • Gain an immersive insight into Rwanda’s history as you listen to haunting life stories at several genocide memorials but also travel further back in time to uncover the rich origins of the country
  • Engage in the magical experience found in Nyungwe as a wild troop of chimpanzees creates an hour of captivating charm far from any signs of humanity
  • Trek twice as gorilla trekking is too good only to do once and on a second trek, you can visit a different troop to admire an entirely new collection of behaviors and interactions
  • Fly along the western boundary of Rwanda and enjoy stunning aerial imagery, including Lake Kivu and the thick Congo Basin forests beneath the wingtips
  • Enjoy privately-guided activities that will create flexibility that can respond to your mood and interests alongside road journeys that allow for stops in local villages and other points of interest as you travel
