The two-bedroom, two-bathroom Albida Suite sleeps four guests and is great for families wanting their own space or friends travelling together.

Day Six & Seven |

Volcanoes National Park

Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda was the first national park to be established in Africa in 1925, with the intention to protect its famous mountain gorillas from poachers.

There’s only one reason that visitors make the trek up into the misty, thickly forested uplands of Africa’s smallest and oldest national park – and that’s to spend 60 minutes in the company of mountain gorillas. Volcanoes National Park is also known to the world as the research base of American zoologist Dian Fossey, who studied the primates here until her death in 1985.

These Endangered primates are confined to small areas of Rwanda, Uganda and DRC, with numbers totalling 1,004. There are 12 habituated troops in Volcanoes. You can approach your designated group to within 7m.

Day Eight |

Madagascar

Transfer by helicopter to Kigali Airport for your flight to Diego Suarez, Madagascar.  From here, a stunning private helicopter ride to one of the most exclusive beach resorts in the world - Miavana by Time + Tide.

All my life I’ve always come back to one thing, my need to feel free and the need to feel the breeze, the ride provides a freedom this gypsy needs, where every road is another blessed memory, a new experience to carry inside my journey, a sense of belonging to a familiar tribe, a brotherhood that goes beyond a bloodline.”

Sink your feet into the pearly sands of a remote island sanctuary where you’ll smell the sweet perfume of jasmine on the breeze while gazing at a thousand sparkling shades of turquoise.
