Gorillas, Safari & Beach

Scroll Down

Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda followed by safari & beach in Kenya.

A quality itinerary which takes you to Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda in search of Mountain Gorillas, before heading on to Kenya for an authentic under canvas safari in the open plains of the Masai Mara.  Finish in style on the Diani coast with a dip in the Indian Ocean.

This trip is very cool and includes some of our favourite boutique hotels and lodges alongside optimum logistics. If you want even more, an extra gorilla trek or hot air balloon ride can be easily added to the itinerary.

Alternative beach destinations would include Zanzibar (quintessential tropical beaches), Mauritius (great for larger all inclusive style resorts), or the Seychelles (good for active stays and island hopping).
