Itinerary Description

One of our classic programs where you game view in the vast plains of the Maasai Mara, Kenya and explore the forested areas in Rwanda for mountain gorillas.This itinerary features Classic and Premier Accommodation options.

Mountain gorilla trekking in Volcano National Park (Parc National des Volcans) is by far Rwanda’s major international attraction. After the release of the feature film, Gorillas in the Mist, about the late Dian Fossey’s pioneering work habituating the gorillas, interest in gorilla trekking reached new heights.

Travel Jan 11-Jun 14 and Nov 1-Dec 19, 2023 and add a complimentary 4th night at Mara Nyika (Based on “Stay 4-pay 3”).
