Tour Overview


Sign up for this wondrous Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda adventure and be treated to once-in-a-lifetime wildlife viewing opportunities the likes of which can be replicated nowhere else on the planet. In Rwanda's Parc National des Volcans, we follow our expert guide over landscapes of lush jungle, open grasslands and bamboo forests and trail one of five families of the endangered mountain gorilla. With a declining world population of 740 animals, the mountain gorilla is the most at-threat subspecies of gorilla and can be found only in four national parks in the world. We learn about the ongoing conservationist battle against poachers and forest clear-cutting and we get up-close and personal with these magnificent creatures that, though they tolerate a small degree of human presence in small amounts, are still very much wild animals.

In Kenya, the country's largest mountain, Mount Kenya, sets itself beautifully against the horizon as we make our way to the Central Highlands to view leopard, buffalo, lions and elephants and our overnight accommodation in a tented camp. We visit what is considered the best of Kenya's parks, Maasai Mara National Reserve, and Amboseli National Park, famous for its red dust-covered herds of elephants.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is our first stop when we enter Tanzania and we don't pass up the opportunity to descend into the magical UNESCO-designated Ngorongoro crater for a game drive to see 'The Big Five', wildebeest, gazelle and hippos. No true wildlife tour in Tanzania would be complete without a visit to Serengeti National Park, a destination which alone is synonymous with the word 'safari'. For good measure, we explore the bounties of the man-made world along the way, such as prehistoric archaeological sites, colonial cities and traditional villages.
