Would like to see gorillas, chimpanzees and the wildebeest migration. Who can put together budget plans?

The August 2019 issue of ITN page 25 has a article on Rwanda and mentions
ITN advertiser Fish Eagle Safaris (Houston, TX; 800/513-5222, www.fisheaglesafaris.com).
try contacting them for budget purposes.

Our 12th trip over this week cancelled and rescheduled for same time next year.
UNDERSTAND, Gorilla trekking (which is why you go to R) is the roughest, most uncomfortable experience of our lives. But we went again a second and third day...so worth it.
So, from there you have soooo many choices--time frame? budget? group, private, semi-private?
Keep in mind, always END your trip in Capetown if you go south, which you should. PM me if you like

There is no budget plan if you want to see the gorillas. The cost of the permit is nearly $2000 just for one trek, so you're going to have to pay if you want to go to Rwanda. We had a trip scheduled for Madagascar upcoming this October, which we postponed and the company we booked with, Wilderness Travel, put together an extension for us to Rwanda for five days, at a little half the cost most companies want for a full trip. You can combine. it with a trip if you want to see the Migration, however, if you book with a company who will guarantee you'll see the migration, you might not see a whole lot. of anything else, and you'll pay a premium for that as well. Simply put, there is no 'budget' way to do what you want to do.
