Notes about this trip

  • The prices shown are based on two people travelling together and sharing double or twin rooms.
  • Because this is based on a private vehicle and guide, the costs for this trip will reduce if more than two people are travelling. Conversely, they increase substantially for a solo traveller.
  • Ask us if you'd like to include an extra morning's gorilla-trekking instead of golden monkey trekking; it's easily swapped when you book your trip.
  • In May 2017 the gorilla-trekking permits doubled in cost to USD$1,500. These increases have been included in the costs shown here.
  • Currently, if you spend two nights or more in Nyungwe Forest National Park, between November and May, you qualify for one discounted gorilla permit per person during your stay in Volcanoes National Park.

International flights

Many of our travellers organise their own flights. However, if you're starting in the UK, we can arrange flights to and from Africa as a part of your holiday. Ask us as we design your trip.
