Day 1
You will be met at Kilimanjaro Airport and transferred to Arusha for your light aircraft flight to your safari camp in the great Serengeti (meaning "Endless Plains").
 
A World Heritage site, Serengeti National Park hosts the largest and longest wildlife overland migration in the world as around October each year, nearly 2 million animals travel 500 miles from the northern hills toward the southern plains - crossing the Mara River in pursuit of the rains. In April the animals return to the north, through the west, once again crossing the Mara River in their migration.
Day 2
Today is devoted to early morning and late afternoon game viewing in the great Serengeti National Park.
 
This vast conservation area, which is larger than Northern Ireland, lies between Lake Victoria in the west, Lake Eyasi in the south and the Great Rift Valley in the east. The landscape varies from open grass plains in the south, savanna with scatterred acacia trees in the centre, hilly wooded grasslands in the north and woodlands and clay pans in the west - with small rivers, lakes ands swamps scattered throughout.
 
With more than 70 large mammals and over 500 other animal species, including large prides of lions and great herds of wildebeest, zebras and gazelle, outstanding game viewing is guaranteed on a scale only seen in East Africa. Bird watching is also outstanding.

Check in, settle in and relax in your warm African surroundings.
Day 5
Today you will be collected from your Kigali hotel and shown the Genocide Memorial.
 
We then travel 2.5-hours to Volcanoes National Park - home to half the world's population of critically endangered mountain gorillas, and also a sanctuary for colobus monkeys and chimpanzees.
 
We travel through beautiful terraced hills and climb to the base of the spectacular volcanoes of the Virunga range. This dense equatorial jungle is accessible only on foot and features one of the richest ecosystems in Africa, including 120 species of mammals, 350 bird species including hornbills and turacos, 220 butterfly species, 27 frog species as well as chameleons, geckos and many other endangered species. It also boasts over 1,000 different flowering plants, ferns & trees.
 
Check into your lodge and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Day 6
Rise early today to travel to Volcanoes National Park where rangers will allocate you to a small group to track a troop of endangered Mountain Gorillas, accompanied by a guide.
 
Expect to walk 2 to 4-hours each way in steep and muddy conditions, to view a family of these enormous animals on foot and observe their behavior up close - a rare privilege indeed!
 
You must be over 16 years to track gorillas and sufficiently fit to walk for the period indicated. Ensure you arrange a packed lunch with the lodge and carry sufficient water (at least 2-3 bottles of 500ml). Warm weatherproof clothing is advised for the wet cool climate high in the mountains, including a rain poncho. You should wear long trousers, long sleeved tops, long socks (to tuck into your trousers), suitable walking boots and gardening gloves to protect your hands from nettles and undergrowth. Also hat, sunscreen & mosquito repellant.
 
You can not be sick or have any infectious disease and no eating or drinking is permitted in the vicinity of the gorillas. Only one hour is allowed with the gorillas and you have to keep a distance of at least 5 metres. No touching the gorillas is allowed (although they may decide to touch you)! The maximum number of visitors allowed per day is 6-12 people per group and no flash photography is allowed.
Day 7
This morning there is time for an optional activity in Volcanoes National Park.
 
In the afternoon transfer 2.5-hours to Kigali where you will be dropped off at your hotel in this bustling city.
