AFRICA ITINERARIES AND TRAVEL TIPS
Africa was one of the most adventurous trips we’ve ever taken! We went trekking with Gorillas in Rwanda and went to Kenya to track Rhinos, as well as venture into the wild on many safaris to see all different kinds of animals, big and small!
Here are our trip highlights:
We saw the Northern Five and tons of other animals while on safari in Northern Kenya! Also, see our amazing accommodations at the best lodge in Northern Kenya, Saruni Samburu, making this the trip of a lifetime to Africa. What to wear and packing tips also included!
We stayed at the Virunga Lodge when we ventured to Rwanda to go gorilla tracking, and it was the most charming place to stay in Rwanda! The staff was so nice and accommodating, making us feel at home halfway around the world.
Our gorilla trek in Rwanda was amazing! Read all about our adventure and how Josh was pushed by a silverback during our visit! Plus, see our guide to everything you need to know about gorilla trekking including what to pack, what to wear, and helpful tips.
Rhinos are rare to find in Africa and the best way to see them is by foot! The Saruni Rhino will give you the best experience both in lodging, food, and getting up close with the rhinos. Where to stay and go in Kenya, Africa.
We were challenged to pack 33 pounds for our 2-week safari trip to Africa! See our packing list for what to wear and what we needed to bring each day on the safari. Check out the camera gear we brought, you may need less than you think!
