MOUNTAIN GORILLA IN RWANDA
A brief international flight to Kigali, Rwanda and a two-hour drive take you to Volcanoes National Park, one of the only places on earth where you will see the rare mountain gorilla. Journey on foot over wild, ungroomed mountain terrain in search of endangered gorilla families. Spot the creatures—of which only 700 remain worldwide—with the help of an expert guide and spend up to one hour in their presence. Before you depart Rwanda, take a brief tour of Kigali including the world-renowned Genocide Museum.
Itineraries run from 1 to 7 days and can be inserted as part of a vehicle based game viewing safari or they can stand alone. Walking trips allow us to visit the more remote and unspoiled parts of the country and to see the landscape and culture with very little outside influence.
Tanzania is home to over 120 distinct ethnic groups, each with its own unique history and culture.
While the focus of a safari is often on the wildlife, Tanzania’s rich cultural history adds another dimension to your trip. You’ll have a chance to encounter this constantly evolving tapestry with Kili Safaris Adventure, on trips to traditional settlements, meeting with tribal elders and storytellers, and in unscripted encounters in markets, villages, and in camp.
Some of the most unique and recognizable cultures in Tanzania include the:
Members of this warrior tribe are a familiar sight on the plains of Northern Tanzania, often wearing the brightly colored shuka that they’re known for (and which regularly inspire fashion designers). Semi-nomadic pastoralists, the Maasai have traditionally been cattle herders, and their wealth and status in the community once related directly to the number of cattle they owned.
There are many Maasai working in the extended Kili Safaris Adventure family,you will see a lot of them on your safaris with us and some of them working with us on Mount Kilimanjaro.
Most of the tribes living in Tanzania today have moved into the modern Area, like many of the Maasai, are blending a deep respect for their heritage into a modern life. The Hadzabe, though, are a tribe with truly ancient traditions.
That’s because the Hadzabe are one of the last hunter-gatherer tribes still in existence. Just 1,000 members of the group remain, all of them in Tanzania, and between 300 and 400 of them live almost exactly as their ancestors have for thousands of years, hunting prey with bows and arrows, foraging for fruit, roots, and honey, and living in only the most rudimentary of shelters (or under the open sky during the dry season).
Though many attempts have been made to “settle” the Hadzabe, they generally return to their traditional way of life as soon as donations of food dry up.
