Experience the Africa of your dreams with this bucket-list trip. Discover extraordinary wildlife on a Kenyan safari and a life-changing gorilla trek in Rwanda.
From the views of Mount Kenya to the wide grasslands of the Masai Mara, there is no place like Kenya for the classic safari. Explore the Masai Mara, one of the loveliest game reserves on the continent. You will see rare and wild animals such as lions, leopards, the shy black rhino, and abundant herds of elephants and buffalos. The richness of the Maasai people adds a layer of culture and diversity; toast in the sun as Maasai warriors perform their customary dances in the traditional brush-packed half-moon boma.
Rwanda is the best place on earth to track gorillas. On this trip, you will have exclusive use of the award-winning Bisate Lodge in Volcanoes National Park. This 62-square-mile game park is home to the last surviving mountain gorillas as well as the endangered golden monkey. Hike through lush hills and spot mountain gorillas peeking out from the bush or happening upon a mother watching over her babies. A truly special and extraordinary experience.
On your arrival day, you’ll be privately transported to the Hemingway House Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel situated in a suburb of Nairobi, with views of the Ngong Hills.
On your first full day in Kenya, you’ll discover two of Nairobi’s most loved attractions. Get a glimpse into the fascinating world of a pioneer coffee farmer at the Karen Blixen Museum, a well-preserved colonial house.
Your next stop will give you the rare opportunity to get up close to some gentle giants. The Giraffe Centre is a renowned natural sanctuary, where you can get on a platform and stand eye to eye with the giraffes, feed them, and even go for a gentle meander.
End the evening with a Welcome Dinner and Hemingway House.
You’ll get to Lakipia on a charter flight after breakfast, and go on an afternoon game drive followed by sundowners with views of Mount Kenya.
On day 4 you can either go on a safari game drive or choose from a range of activities such as horseback riding, camel trekking, guided bush walks, and mountain biking.
You will be staying at Loisaba Tented Camp, a luxury camp with abundant wildlife and breathtaking views.
Today you’re off to the Masai Mara and transfer to your accommodation for the next four nights, the Angama Mara. The elegant tented suites are located high above the ground of Africa’s Great Rift Valley and provide extraordinary views of the Masai Mara from every corner.
Over the next few days, you will be able to go on a variety of morning and afternoon safaris where you’ll be surrounded by more animals than you can imagine.
There are many other activities to choose from at Angama Mara; Sunrise hot-air balloon safaris, photographing Africa’s abundant wildlife and walking on the edge of the Great Rift Valley. Have a picnic in the middle of nowhere, or make use of the fitness and wellness offering at the lodge.
On your last evening, you will get to see a sunset performance by Massai warriors.
Fly back to Nairobi on a private charter flight to connect with your international flight to Kigali, the bustling capital city of Rwanda. Kigali spreads out over scenic ridges and valleys, with the city center located on a hill.
Tonight you will stay at the Kigali Serena Hotel, an elegant 5-star hotel.
Before transferring to your next accommodation, you will have time to explore the city briefly and visit the world-renowned Kigali Genocide Memorial.
Next stop: Bisate Lodge adjacent to the Volcanoes National Park. Bisate combines the bucket-list gorilla trek with a pioneering vision of reforestation and community partnership.
On the next day, you will go on a trek to visit magnificent mountain gorillas. This is an extraordinary and life-changing experience, as you watch them foraging, playing, teasing each other, eating, or slumbering in an uncanny resemblance to ourselves.
Explore this scenic land cape where Dian Fossey carried out her ground-breaking gorilla research. We’ll take the time to visit the local community and engage in the culture in the area, visiting a coffee plantation.
On your last day, you can choose to spend the morning searching the lush vegetation at the foot of Mount Sabyinyo for one of the two habituated groups of golden monkeys.
After a delicious breakfast, you will be road transferred back to Kigali Airport for your outbound flight.
