Private Migration and Gorillas

From 17130 PP


East Africa, exclusively

This is the ultimate luxury East African safari, staying at two of the very best exclusive-use properties in East Africa. Perfect for families and friends after the bucket list experiences of witnessing the wildebeest migration and gorilla trekking in private.

Begin with three nights in the Singita Grumeti Reserve, an enormous private slice of the Serengeti with all the incredible wildlife of the neighbouring national park and none of the crowds. Based out of the fabulous Serengeti House with a private guide and vehicle, your safari here is completely tailored to you.

In Rwanda, you’ll be based at the private Singita Kataza Lodge. Right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park, here you’re perfectly placed to venture into the park’s bamboo forests for an unforgettable encounter with a family of mountain gorillas.

Safari on the Serengeti

Board a light aircraft flight to a vast private concession of the Serengeti. At nine times the size of Manhattan and limited to just a handful of fabulous luxury camps and lodges, the Singita Grumeti Reserve is the most exclusive way to experience the wonders of the Serengeti. You’ll be staying at the private Serengeti House, an understatedly glamorous villa with its own spa and an infinity pool boasting incredible views.

Days 5 — 7

Meet the gorillas

On arrival in Kigali, you’ll be met and driven out of the capital on a sinuous road towards Volcanoes National Park and your private home for the next two nights – the stunning Kataza House.

The highlight of any stay here is a gorilla trek. At the nearby park HQ, you’ll meet your ranger-guide team before trekking into the forest for your encounter with a habituated family group. Watch as young ones play and roll through the undergrowth, mothers delicately eat bamboo and adolescent males show off. A proud silverback is always an impressive sight, especially so when you’re on foot in their home. An awe-inspiring wildlife experience.
