Nairobi Zanzibar and Gorillas safari

If it's wildlife you're after, this is as good as it gets - from game drives in Kenya's parks to camping in the Serengeti; from Uganda's magical chimpanzee sanctuary through to the incredible mountain gorillas of Rwanda. Africa is much more than just wildlife, however. The Usambara Mountains are Tanzania's hidden gem, and we'll stop in villages and meet people who rarely encounter visitors.
