Like a pride of lions sensing a herd of approaching zebras, we stand up and take notice when a country's tourism makes up more than half of its gross domestic product. People are flocking there for a reason—and in the case of Rwanda and Kenya, it's the wildlife safaris they're sinking their teeth into.

Stop hunting for the perfect deal to get you there: With this week's Escape from ET African Journeys, it's walking right into your den. Between May and November*, you'll spend seven nights observing both the gorillas of Rwanda and the wildlife of Kenya.

The ten-day excursion (seven nights in Africa; three days of travel) comes with round-trip airfare from Washington DC as well as domestic airfare from Rwanda to Kenya; seven breakfasts, six lunches, and five dinners; all accommodations; ground transportation; top-notch guides; vehicles; fuel; and gorilla permits.

Your stay in Rwanda features the world's best primate tracking—an up-close, personal, and breathtaking view into the wild lives of the famous silverback gorillas and the golden monkeys. After a long day in the jungle, you'll enjoy the upscale accommodations of the Gorillas Hotel (two nights) and Golf Hills Residence (one night), two of Rwanda's premier lodging options.

Then it's out of the jungle and onto the golden savannah of Kenya, where the big five—lions, African elephants, Cape buffaloes, leopards, and rhinoceroses—dot the lush plains as far as your cat-eyes can see.

Between your glorious days of wildlife encounters, sightseeing, and photographing, you'll catnap in Kenya's only all-suite, five-star hotel, the Nairobi Safari Club (one night), then one of the first lodges in the world-famous game reserve of Masai Mara Sopa Lodge (two nights), and finally, at the bird-watchers' paradise of Lake Nakuru Lodge, home of the pink flamingos (one night).

Alas, like the zebra whose every move is being watched by the pride, this trip can't last forever. And neither can this deal—pounce on it before its nine lives are up.

  • "Kenya is where 'going on safari' started. ... Today millions of international visitors continue to flock to this East African nation each year. Although humans have made their mark, Kenya still holds onto its pristine wilderness."
