- Watch the Mountain gorillas
- View fantastic wildlife in the famous Masai Mara
- Enjoy game drives in Lake Nakuru National Park
Kenya is a magnificent place to see a huge variety of wildlife. The Masai Mara; a vast grassland teeming with animals, has an astonishing amount and mixture of game, including lions, cheetahs and at certain times of the year, the wildebeest migration. Bird enthusiastists will particularly love Lake Nakuru, pink-rimmed with thousands of flamingos, and where there is a healthy population of White and Black rhinos. The highlight of the trip is undoubtedly the gorillas in the foothills of the Parc National des Volcans in Rwanda. This close-up encounter is arguably the most sensational wildlife experience of them all.
What makes this trip responsible?
The USD750 per person gorilla permit fee contributes vital income directly towards preserving these magnificent creatures. The mountain gorilla's survival is dependent on money - money to pay for anti-poaching programs in need of personnel, weapons, ammunition and transport; money to pay for maintenance of the national park – the gorilla's natural habitat; money to make sure that those involved with protecting the gorillas are paid enough not to be tempted by bribery from would be poachers.
