August 9 to 18, 2019

Traveling with biological anthropologist Jamie Jones, come face to face with some of the planet’s most endangered wildlife. Savor three days of safari in the famed Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, and trek to view mountain gorillas and golden monkeys in Rwanda.

Pride of the savannah. From our home base of Little Governor's Camp in Kenya, look for lions, cheetahs, elephants and zebras which roam freely in the Maasai Mara. Also be on the lookout for vast herds of wildebeest that traverse the plains during their annual migration. Primarily primates. Get up-close with the endangered mountain gorillas in the same forests where primatologist Dian Fossey conducted her ground-breaking research. Continue the journey on an optional extension to lush Nyungwe Forest National Park where we’ll enjoy an ape’s-eye view of the canopy on elevated walkways and can watch for chimpanzees as they swing through the treetops.
