i want to see the gorillas on my 50th birthday

Jump to last reply

i am probably starting a little late in my planning.
after my trip to so. africa in 2002 i have been dying to return to other parts of the 'dark' continent.
my initial desire was to go to kenya and tanzania but after having waited so many years to return, i really want to spend my 50th with the gorillas.
this would be at the end of june 2011.

after having read and continuing to read trip reports i think i would like to spend 4-5 days in rwanda and 8-9 days in kenya or tanzania.
i am leaning a little towards kenya only because i feel that if i go to tanzania, i also want to go to mt. kilimanjaro but i don't have enough time on this trip.

this is a first time solo trip for me and as excited as i am, i am also very nervous.

tips? thoughts? suggestions?
