Guest Comment

"Karen at Deeper Africa was awesome. She listened to our desires and we got exactly what we wanted and more. The accommodations were beautiful and very spacious. The food was outstanding. Seamless travel connections. A very thorough pre-departure briefing helped us prepare for the many climate changes, logistics, and cultural differences.

What really makes a trip like this special are the guides. Isaac shared with his beautiful country of Rwanda and led us to an amazing gorilla viewing day. Ayoub led us through the Serengeti finding more animals than we had ever dreamed of seeing. He can spot them from miles away. The best part about having your own guide is that you can do what you want when you want it. Both guides were flexible to our families needs while keeping us on schedule. We never felt rushed. Basically our every desire was catered too, we were completely spoiled . . . Both became friends to our family and I would highly recommend asking for them by name."

Trip Overview

From the mischievous chimps of Nyungwe Forest, to the troops of colobus, vervet, and golden monkeys found throughout the wilderness, to the gorillas in the mist of Parc National des Volcans, the primates of Rwanda are diverse and unforgettable. This 8 day safari will bring you up-close to these remarkable creatures, guaranteeing encounters with humanity’s closest relatives that will touch you deeply.

By spending more than one day trekking in both Nyungwe Forest National Park and Parc National des Volcans, you will have time to get to know these primates and observe them with their families. You’ll have close range viewing, allowing for a glimpse into individual personalities and group dynamics. Watch stately silverbacks, grooming females, and playful youngsters running and jumping. 

You’ll also have plenty of time to form human connections with locals in both the vibrant capital of Kigali and the rural villages of Kinigi and Musanze. During your time in Kigali, stay at the historic Hotel des Milles Collines,  join the Nyamiranmbo community for cooking lessons followed by a traditional Rwandan meal, or conclude your safari with a memorable visit to the Genocide Museum.
