Begin in The Republic of the Congo and the massive Odzala-Kokoua National Park, over 5,250 square miles of verdant rainforest, swamps, and savannahs. Set off with experienced guides to find the bais hidden within the rainforest, where salt-rich soil attracts forest elephants, gorillas, chimpanzees, and a myriad of forest animals from miles around.

Continue to Rwanda and Nyungwe Forest National Park and spend the next two days exploring the diverse climates and terrains of the park. Lush forests at varying altitudes offer refuge for a quarter of Africa’s primate species, chimpanzees and colobus monkeys among them. After a night’s rest on Lake Kivu, end your unforgettable journey in Volcanoes National Park, the area that played host to acclaimed researcher Dian Fossey for over 20 years. Set off in search of silverback gorillas on guided treks for your last few days in Africa.
