From tracking wild mountain gorillas in their natural habitat, to soaring over the plains of the iconic Masai Mara in a hot air balloon, and swimming with whale sharks in Zanzibar, we’re certain that this African adventure will be the most magical and memorable holiday you will ever take. Starting in Rwanda you’ll track endangered mountain gorillas, before spending three days in Kenya’s Masai Mara. This phenomenal holiday ends with four days on the exotic spice island on Zanzibar.

Day 1: Arrive in Kigali & Drive to Parc National des Volcans

Upon arrival in Kigali you will be met by a representative and driven through the lush green Rwandan countryside to Kinigi at the foothills of the Virungas in Parc National des Volcans. Upon arrival you’ll check in to your accommodation where you’ll stay for the next two nights.  

Overnight: Parc National des Volcans
Meals: (_/Lunch/Dinner)

Day 2: Gorrila Tracking

Today you will experience a once-in-a lifetime wildlife encounter with the wild mountain gorillas of Rwanda. After an early breakfast you’ll be driven to the Parc National des Volcans HQ where you’ll meet your guide who will brief you about your trek and the various aspects of ‘gorilla etiquette’. Then your professional guide will lead you deep into the forest in search of your allocated gorilla family.

The high altitude and steep, slippery trails and the humidity under the forest canopy can make the trek challenging, but it’s definitely worth the effort to spend time with wild mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.

Overnight: Parc National des Volcans
Meals: (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)

Day 3: Tour of Kigali & Fly to Nairobi

After breakfast this morning you will return to Kigali where you’ll have an opportunity for a guided tour of the city, including a visit the Genocide Memorial and Education Centre which is a permanent memorial to those who were killed during the 1994 genocide. This afternoon you’ll be driven to the airport for your onward flight to Nairobi. Upon arrival in Nairobi a representative will be transferred you to your accommodation.

We use a number of different award-winning safari camps and luxury lodges within the Masai Mara and we will ensure that we match you to the most suitable accommodation for your requirements and sense of style.

Day 5: On Safari in Masai Mara

This iconic reserve offers amazing wildlife viewing opportunities and it’s highly likely that you’ll see zebra, impala, gazelle, wildebeest, buffalo, rhino and elephant, plus lions, cheetahs and leopards. If you’re visiting at the right time of year you can see the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth - the Great Migration – when over 2.5 million wildebeest migrate north from the Serengeti National Park to the Masai Mara National Reserve in a seasonal annual cycle driven by rainfall. If you would like to plan this holiday around the wildebeest migration please contact us to speak to one of our Africa Fair Travel Specialists.

There are a range of other activities you can participate in during your time in the Masai Mara, including cultural visits to Maasai villages and markets, guided bush walks, horse riding, and black rhino tracking experiences.

There’s also a wide choice of adventure activities that you can participate in, including mountain biking, hiking, bird watching, wind surfing, kite surfing, sea kayaking and sailing, plus the island has fantastic coral reefs which are perfect for diving and snorkelling – and you may even be lucky enough to see dolphins, green turtles and, at certain times of the year, whale sharks.
