Rwanda, Kenya & Zanzibar

Rwanda      Kenya      Zanzibar

This is a superb trip with gorilla trekking in Rwanda's Parc National des Volcans, a Big-Five safari in the Masai Mara, a visit to the Unesco World Heritage Site of Stone Town and time on the beach in Zanzibar. The Big-Five safari on the plains of the Masai Mara is in open four-wheel drive vehicles and is combined with a once in a life time opportunity to see the endangered Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda's Parc National des Volcans. The trip is completed with time to explore the ancient houses and narrow cobbled streets of Stone Town, Zanzibar's capital, before relaxing on a white sand beach.

Gorilla Mountain View Lodge: excellent comfort, service, location, meals and facilities.

Wildebeest Camp: Excellent comfort and location. Good service, meals and facilities. Barking dogs and noisy toads kept me awake! Perfect otherwise.

Amboseli Porini Camp: Excellent in all respects.

Rwandan driver-guide Mussa and hotel staff second-to-none. Nothing was too muc bother and everything was undertaken with  smile. Went beyond the call of duty - lovely people, amazing country and amazing Gorillas!
