The trip starts in Rwanda, known as a country with 1000 hills. It is home to chimpanzees, mountain gorillas, and stunning scenery. Enjoy Chimp trekking and our favorite, gorilla trekking. After Rwanda, you will travel down to the beautiful city of Cape Town (also one of our favorites). Enjoy the unique topography the city offers as well as excellent food and wine. Take insights such as Cape Point, Table Mountain and the Cape Winelands. Continue along the coast through the Garden Route seeing the Cango Caves as well as staying in a very fancy treehouse! Finish the trip off with a safari in the Shamwari Game reserve which will not disappoint.
