Details

Welcome to Africa overload! This Eid we are taking you for a dream journey, through the selection of our favorite locations on the whole African continent.

Lava lakes – one of Earth’s most amazing wonders of nature occur in a variety of volcanic systems in 5 locations around the world. Hawai, Chile and Antarctica are quite remote to us, however Congo’s Niyarogongo and Ethiopia’s Erta Ale happen to be within our region thus we invite you to encounter smoking lava flow with your own eyes!
The locals call the volcano “General Niyarogongo” for the existential threat of Earth’s mightiest natural wonders “because when he comes, everyone runs”. Rest assured, though, as the Niyarogongo is closely monitored by teams of volcanic scientists for seismic activity which makes it relatively safe to visit.

Further on, we will take the off beaten trail the will bring you inside equatorial jungle wilderness. Accompanied by Park Rangers we will traverse through the jungle to the home of mountain gorillas.
The length of the trek is entirely dependent on the gorillas — sometimes the guides can track them down in less than two hours, other times it takes much longer. Mountain gorillas are nomadic, travelling the jungle in families and staying in an area just long enough to clear it of food. They also don’t follow a clear path, and you’ll realise when tracking them that they like to meander.On your first sighting, you may see mothers holding their babies, juvenile gorillas playing, or dominant silverbacks keeping an eye out for their family! This is definitely the most adventurous option from all neighbouring countries around and may require some physical challenge, however since then we will be nicely warmed up after Niyarogongo hike.

Mighty Victoria Falls:

(Tokaleya Tonga: The Smoke That Thunders), a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world. Victoria Falls is classified as the largest, based on its combined width of 1,708 meters and height of 108 meters, resulting in the world's largest body of falling water. Victoria Falls is roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls and well over twice the width of its Horseshoe Falls. The most notable aspect of the area's vegetation though is the rainforest nurtured by the spray from the falls. Victoria Falls National Park contains abundant wildlife.
