Rwanda in Combination

You can travel to Rwanda for gorilla trekking as a single experience but this is a country usually experienced in combination with other destinations in Africa. Thanks to a smooth-running network of air connections, Rwanda’s gorilla trekking combines with big game safaris in Kenya and Tanzania or head south for Botswana, the Kruger ParkVictoria Falls and Cape Town. Tick off the Big 5, marvel at the great wildebeest migration and toast the setting sun from the top of Table Mountain – all possible combinations with your gorilla trek.

We have a wide range of tours that combine Rwanda with Africa’sbest destinations and appeal to all types of traveller from honeymooners to families. Browse our most popular destination combinations below and visit our Itinerary Ideas page for inspiration or simply contact us with the destinations of your choice and we will tailor-make an itinerary for you.

Tanzania & Zanzibar

Gorilla trekking plus the Serengeti wildebeest migration, Big 5 game viewing at the Ngorongoro Crater and a Zanzibar beach holiday – it’s all possible when you add Tanzania into your Rwanda travel plans. It’s a highly recommended combination for wildlife photographers & there’s great accommodation all the way.

Kenya & Coast

A direct flight from Kigali to Nairobi means Rwanda’s gorilla trekking combines with Kenya’s top travel destinations. Home to the wildebeest migration, the Masai Mara is at its dramatic best during the June to September gorilla trekking season & it’s also a great time to travel to Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast for a beach holiday.

Southern Africa

Rwanda’s gorilla trekking seasons coincide with the best times to visit southern Africa’s top destinations: the June – October trekking period is the most rewarding safari season in the Kruger Park, Botswana, Zambia & Zimbabwe. The December -February trekking season, however, sees Cape Town & the Cape Wine lands lying under blue summer skies with the party in full swing.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
Safari Online made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.
