Travel to Rwanda and Tanzania for a unique insight into the diversity of East Africa. Go gorilla trekking in the rainforests of Rwanda, head out on a classic safari in Serengeti National Park, then head to Zanzibar for some chic island relaxation. Bliss!
Observe gorillas! Volcanoes National Park is part of the Virunga Mountains protected area, also part of Congo and Rwanda.
Gorilla Trekking No other wildlife encounter in Africa matches the astounding experience of spending time face-to-face with some of the few remaining wild mountain gorillas. For a gorilla trek you need to be fairly fit for the humid, muddy conditions of a rainforest hike. Even in the dry season, the rainforest is a challenging environment: it is humid, wet and muddy with some steep slopes and thick vegetation. It is absolutely worth the effort to spend time with gorillas in the wild, but be prepared to exert yourself on the trek. Your professional guide and tracker lead you into the forest’s secret paths, looking for a habituated gorilla family. Once found, approach the gorillas quietly and settle down to observe them from between 7 and 10m away. You will spend up to one hour with the gorillas, watching the adults forage and groom each other while the babies tumble and play. You will be under the watchful gaze of the great silverback patriarch whose soft brown eyes constantly sweep over his family protectively. Witnessing gorillas express typically human gestures and emotions is a truly profound experience!
