Kenya Under Canvas & Mountain Gorillas of Rwanda Extension
Experience Kenya Under Canvas and The Mountain Gorillas of Rwanda on this Lifetime Moments Safari! In Rwanda, very few people will ever have a close encounter with the endangered Mountain Gorilla, one of the most poignant and memorable experiences of a lifetime! In Kenya, visit sanctuaries where you’ll see the endangered Rhino and Chimpanzees. If you’ve never been to East Africa, get ready for the ultimate Safari experience! If you’ve traveled with us before, experience what draws you back with a new and exciting itinerary. The seasoned Safari traveler knows the thrill of a tented camp environment. Imagine spending five nights ‘Under Canvas’ during your lifetime adventure! From Serena’s luxury camp, the flagship Sarova in the heart of the Maasai to iconic Sweetwaters, your night’s ‘camping’ will be like nothing you’ve experienced. As your Safari unfolds, the impact of two amazing women, and their conservation efforts will be seen and felt. Jane Goodall, and her influence at Sweetwaters, your first Safari stop; later the author of “Gorilla’s in the Mist”, Dian Fossey and her time spent in Rwanda where your journey ends. From game drives in Kenya providing amazing opportunities to see the “Big Five,” to the beauty of Rwanda - Home Of A Thousand Hills, this is truly an opportunity that comes just once in a lifetime. Personal note from Jane: For those of you who may have joined First Dakota previously for our exciting Kenya and Tanzania safari programs, I am pleased and excited to announce that our dear friend and Trips Safari Director Alloys Batsinduka (Batsi) is onboard to escort us on this trip of a lifetime to his native country of Rwanda! This experience, especially having Batsi with us, will create some life changing moments I am quite sure. Click here to learn more!
