Wakeup early in Morning and make sure you have Packed lunch, water and set to face the impenetrable Forest, Walk to the registration headquarters and have your permits verified, then Your allocated a particular Gorilla Group, each Group can only contain 8 members a day, this makes Gorilla Permits very competitive and availability is not always Guaranteed till a permit is Reserved and Booked, the numbers are limited in order to give space for the few guests to enjoy Gorillas when they reach them otherwise too many people can stress the Gorillas and unavoidable war can be the option.
Once you get your Group allocation (here we shall choose a Gorilla group we know its the best for you) otherwise not every group is interesting, some are playful and others are NOT, so leave this part to us. You will start the trek by 8:30am and be expecting to spend an entire day or half of it depending on where you will find them, have an hour with them and take enough shots for your great memories, the hiking is so stressful and sometimes people fail, in that case one pays porters who can carry you up to where gorillas are and bring you back to your Start point, You will then go back to your Lodge and Transfer to Mgahinga Park for a Second Gorilla trek its 1 hr and 20 minutes Drive to mount Gahinga Safari Lodge

Tucked away in a wooded valley close to the Crater rim, this tented camp lies close to the main entrance to the Crater floor, allowing you to be among the first vehicles to enter the next day. The world’s largest intact volcanic caldera, the Ngorongoro Crater protects one of Africa’s richest concentrations of large animals within its steep walls and is ranked among the best places to see the all of the Big 5 – lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino – in one setting.
The crater is pretty small at 8,292 km2 (3,202 sq mi), and there aren’t a lot of places to hide, so the animals are everywhere, in plain sight. In almostly any direction you look, you’ll see zebras, wildebeests, elephants, and if you’re lucky, lions and rhinos too. We use this day to explore this area, we try to arrive back at our lodge on the crater rim by the mid afternoon. This gives you a chance to watch as golden hour and then sunset come and paint the crater various hues of green and blue. It’s a beautiful sight. Overnight at Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp

If you have not seen much of the Wildebeest Migration up to now, it will be because the herds are here. Set on a private stretch of the Mara River, the river crossings – when the migrating herds brave the snapping jaws of enormous Nile crocodiles as they make their way from one side to the other.
This day will be spent on game drives in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Together with your guide you can search for the Big Five. You are in no rush, so you have enough time to enjoy all the wonderful moments which can make your safari a magical experience.
