Rwanda in Combination

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 Park, Victoria 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.

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.
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.
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.
