Begin in The Republic of the Congo and over 5,250 square miles of verdant rainforest, swamps, and savannahs in Odzala-Kokoua National Park. 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. These bais create a unique glimpse into the forest life and will be yours to explore from the confines of Lango Camp and Ngaga Camp.

Overnight in Brazzaville and Kigali before arriving in Nyungwe Forest National Park to 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. Travel next to 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, soaking in the sweeping view of the forested valley from the terraces of the Sayinyo Silverback Lodge.

Next, journey into Tanzania where the Great Migration takes center stage. Split your time between the gorgeous Singita Sasakwa and Singita Mara River camps, both with front-row seats to the annual migration in the Grumeti Reserve. Round out your trip at the beautiful Greystoke Mahale on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Mahale Mountains National Park, which is home to some of the last wild chimpanzees in the world. In addition to game viewing here, you can participate in chimp tracking activities, as well as snorkeling and fishing in the world’s second largest freshwater lake.
