Introduction

The exhilaration of spending time with a family of Mountain Gorillas – the largest primates on earth – is an experience that will stay with you forever. Critically endangered due to habitat loss, poaching, disease and war, there are fewer than eight hundred individuals left, making them some of the rarest mammals on the planet. A face-to-face encounter with these remarkable creatures is surely one of the most memorable wildlife experiences of all.

Our safari starts in the fascinating city of Kigali.  From here, we head out to the Virunga Mountains – a chain of volcanoes with densely forested slopes which are home to these great apes.  We will do  two treks to different locations, making our way from the foothills up into the rainforest, weaving through overhanging vines and lush vegetation alive with colourful butterflies and birds.  Once we locate the gorillas, we will stay with them for a magical hour each day as they feed, play and tend to their young.

What our clients had to say

“The most amazing trip!  All to your credit:  the preparation, choice of accommodations and locations, travel methods, arrangements for kids, etc., etc.  Could go on forever!  Your professionalism, knowledge and kind way with the kids was so appreciated.  We can never thank you enough.”

“Our trip was absolutely spectacular. I have wanted to see the mountain gorillas for many years and was not disappointed.   Thanks so much for the gorgeous e-Book – special thanks to you, Lee, for taking shots of us at our gorilla viewings.  I still find it hard to believe that I was actually there. It was an unreal/surreal experience.  I might have to do it againJ… I always feel as if I’ve stepped into a dream.”
