Spotting game at Akagera National Park can be wonderful in June, making it a great time to combine gorillas and game in one itinerary, within one destination. Many of the animals including 11 species of antelopes, black rhinos, and even leopards can often be spotted near the waterhole during the dry seasons.
If you want a combination of destinations, a majority of safari destinations in Africa are great in June. You could combine mountain gorillas with big cats in Kenya and Tanzania, or some beach time on the coast. You can even combine Rwanda and Madagascar at this time of year, for a very unique twist on a primate safari (we’d recommend throwing some chimpanzee tracking in there too for the ultimate primate journey!).
For something a little different, speak to us about combining your safari with Kwita Izina. This is the annual gorilla naming ceremony and a community effort to assist with their conservation. Each year, the infants born are given a name, often one that reflects a characteristic, or the family they are born into.
