Tour Overview

The initial portion of our exciting adventure through two highly rewarding East African destinations finds us roaming through thick, verdant rainforest in Rwanda's Parc National des Volcans, as our expert guide leads us on a tracking expedition to find the elusive mountain gorilla. A park of diverse ecosystems, glorious and varied landscapes and rich nature, Parc National des Volcans provides a picture-perfect backdrop for this thrilling journey to witness one of the world's most fascinating species of primate in its natural habitat. Following in the footsteps of zoologist Dian Fossey, we track one of five families of gorillas on the slopes of the stunning Virunga Mountain Range and learn about the plight of these endangered creatures and the ongoing battle conservationists fight with poachers.

Before crossing into Kenya, we stop off for a day tour of Kigali, where we explore the Genocide Museum that serves as a monument of remembrance to the tragic events of a decade ago, a period that left an indelible scar on the nation's psyche yet failed to lastingly wound the indomitable spirit of its resilient people. Kenya, an incredible safari destination, is without doubt the perfect African getaway to see zebras, giraffes, crocodiles, 'The Big Five'and hosts of enchanting creatures, big and small. We travel far and wide across the country, enjoying comprehensive insight into this natural wonderland and the traditional cultures of its inhabitants.
