10 Days Rwanda Gorilla and Tanzania Migration Safari.
Rwanda & Tanzania.
The trip will take you to two countries in East Africa with different cultures, landscapes and climates. While Rwanda is hillier while on the other side Tanzania is a more open savannah country. Start with Rwanda and see the mountain gorilla before visiting three pristine wildlife areas in Tanzania with a chance to witness the Great Migration. While the sight of hundred of thousands of wildebeest and zebras thunder across the plains is spectacular, the Mara River crossing is absolutely one of the most breathtaking natural actions in wildlife sightings.
