Recommended Extension: East Africa

With seamless connectivity to Nairobi, Tanzania and Kenya's annual wildebeest migration and a host of incredible experiences are a mere 4 hour flight away. Our knowledgeable team have travelled to East Africa extensively over the past three decades and would love to hand-craft a savanna wildlife extension to complement Congo's sublime primate experience.

Imagine a grassland of a gently rolling landscape covered in almost two million wildebeest on the move, with their ever present companions, the large herds of zebra, eland and of course attendant predators! This is East Africa's greatest spectacle and is just one of the phenomenal experiences on offer.
