10 Day Kenya & Rwanda Fly-in Safari Naivasha Masai Mara Volcanoes

10 Day Kenya & Rwanda Fly-in Safari visits Naivasha, Masai Mara and Volcanoes in Rwanda; enjoy two of Africa’s most iconic wildlife experiences – begin by searching for lion, leopard and cheetah on safari in the Masai Mara followed by tracking mountain gorillas in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park.

Fly from Nairobi to South-western Kenya to the Maasai Mara National Reserve and stay for 3 nights at any one of the three award-winning Governors’ luxury safari camps – Little Governors Camp, Governors Il Moran Camp or the Governors Camp.

Tucked away in a forest on the banks of the Mara River, Governors’ safari camps are located in a pristine spot of wilderness which is home to an incredible array of wildlife. The camps are ideally placed to let you to be at the heart of the Great Wildebeest Migration.

On many occasions, guests have seen the wildebeest cross the Mara River right in front of Governors’ Camp. Enjoy early morning, and late afternoon Big 5 game drives in open-sided Land Rovers, game walks, massages, guided safaris walks and Hot-air Ballooning.

After 3 Nights in Masai Mara we hop over to Rwanda and have an overnight stop in its capital, Kigali, where you’ll have the chance to learn more about Rwanda’s history and culture.

After a night in Kigali we transfer by road to Volcanoes National Park and make Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge our home for the next three nights. Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge located close to the headquarters of the Volcanoes National Park from where you trek on foot to see the magnificent Mountain Gorilla.

In the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda there are over 20 families of Mountain Gorilla, comprised of around 280 individual gorillas, living on the slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes. Of these 20 families, 12 families are visited with 10 families being visited each day. The Parks Authority rotates the families that you trek to see, on a daily basis.

Accompanied by guides and trackers, you’ll trek through the vegetation to find your troop going about their day feeding, playing, grooming and socializing. Under the ever-watchful eye of a dominant silverback, you’ll encounter between a dozen and thirty other gorillas, each with their own personalities, from cocky adolescents and wise mothers to young ones rolling through the bamboo.

It’s always a magical experience. As well as gorilla trekking, you can meet endemic golden monkeys, take day trips to scenic lakes and visit the Diane Fossey’s memorial.
