Enjoy a short break to Rwanda, gorilla tracking in the Parc National des Volcans. This is a unique opportunity to interact with these magical primates in their natural habitat.

Many people ask about taking a short overseas trip to see wildlife and this is the one we most often recommend.  Our five night trip travels to Rwanda's dense cloud forest, to track a family of mountain gorillas - an exceptional wildlife experience that definitely won't be forgotten!

There's nothing like a quick trip to an utterly different environment to lift the soul and help you relax and unwind, especially when you're within eye contact with a silverback!
