Kenya Safari and Rwanda Gorillas

Inspirational safari holiday to Rwanda and Kenya

Experience two bucket list wildlife destinations, an authentic Kenyan safari in the Maasai Mara and the chance to track the rare mountain gorilla in the equatorial forests of Rwanda. This is luxury safari at its best, expect deluxe lodges, impeccable service, and extraordinary cuisine. Between the two countries, there's also a night at Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, offering the once-in-a-lifetime experience of close-up encounters with the semi-habituated giraffe as they put their heads through the windows at breakfast.

Start with the quintessential safari experience that is the Maasai Mara in Kenya. The reserve is teeming with elephants, lions, leopards and a host of other game, including the wildebeest migration from July to October. The ultra-luxurious Angama Mara Lodge looks out over the action, offering arguably the best views in the Mara. The trip concludes with gorilla tracking in the exceptionally beautiful Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. You will stay at Singita Kwitonda Lodge with its dramatic views of the peaks of the volcanoes Bisoke and Karisimbi rearing up through the Afro-alpine forests.
