Days 1, 2, and 3: Volcanoes National Park, Gorilla Trekking
When you arrive in Kigali, Rwanda’s capital city, you will be met by your driver, who will drive you through beautiful, farmed valleys to the Volcanoes National Park for three nights. This afternoon is free for you to unwind and prepare for one of Africa’s most incredible wildlife encounters — gorilla tracking. The Volcanoes National Park is one of Africa’s wildlife successes. Since the 1990s, people have come to monitor gorillas here, and the revenue produced by this has allowed Rwanda to not only protect but also grow the gorilla population. Tourist revenue has also allowed Rwanda to construct other national parks and reintroduce creatures that were previously extinct in the country.
This morning, you meet your crew, trackers, and guide for your gorilla tracking expedition on the slopes of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. After a briefing at the park headquarters where you will learn more about the gorilla family, you will be tracking, you will depart on your gorilla safari. Trackers go out ahead of the squad to discover the gorilla family so they can point you in the right way. After you locate the gorilla family, you will be able to spend an hour with them as they go about their regular routines. This is one of the best animal encounters in Africa, and just a few people get to have it.
Tracking gorillas on the slopes of Volcanoes National Park may be difficult, so it is best to be in good shape before beginning a gorilla trip.
Day 4: Kigali
This morning, before returning to Kigali, you have the option of participating in additional activities in Volcanoes National Park. You can stop by the Kigali Genocide Memorial on your way to your hotel. This is a poignant memorial to the horrendous atrocities committed in Rwanda during the 1990s.
Days 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12: Seychelles
After the excitement of your gorilla safari in Rwanda and the big five safaris in the Masai Mara, you deserve some downtime, and Seychelles is the ideal destination. Return to Nairobi in time for your journey to Seychelles’ beautiful islands. Seychelles, comprised of 115 islands spread over the Indian Ocean, is a picture-perfect beach getaway, with blinding white sandy beaches, crystal clear blue waters surrounded by palm trees, and lush green woods.
Depending on your budget and preferences, Seychelles boasts a plethora of luxury beach lodges, villas, and private islands to select from. Our preference is for exclusive private islands where we may enjoy complete seclusion. North Island and the Outer Islands of Alphonse Island, Astove Island, and the Cosmoledo Atoll are Stanley Safaris’ top picks for private islands.
Whatever option or island you choose, you can count on white sandy, palm-fringed beaches and crystal-clear blue waters rich with marine life. Spend your days lounging on the beach or by the pool, or go snorkeling or diving to see the wonderful diversity beneath the water.
