Trip Overview

Destinations: Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda

James, Nina and Alex wanted to see as much Wildlife as possible in an authentic a way as possible. East Africa fitted the bill perfectly – from seeing the Ngorongoro Crater floor brimming with wildlife, to the spectacular plains of the Serengeti to witness the migration at the right place at the right time and moving on to the Maasai Mara for incredible up-close wildlife experiences. Completing this journey – coming face-to-face with the Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda was truly life changing.
