Travel to the skyscraping mountains of Northern India as you begin your quest for the snow leopard. Typically a seven-day itinerary—with the first two days earmarked for altitude acclimatization in Ladakh—you’ll spend the other five days accompanied by specialist guides who can offer you the greatest chance of observing a snow leopard slinking among the rocks and ridgelines of its natural habitat.
Gorillas. Land in Kigali in the Congo before transferring to Virunga, a remote jungle lodge which will be your base for your gorilla trekking adventure. In the company of experienced guides, set off the next day through lush jungle ready for an affecting encounter with a family of gorillas. You’ll observe these sociable primates in their natural environment and be impressed at their intelligent behavior.
