Hamilton, 37, began his trip by going to Namibia last week.
And he has continued his journey by travelling over to Rwanda.
While in the Central African country, Hamilton has taken part in some exciting activities.
The seven-time world champion visited amazing gorillas in their natural habitat after hiking up a volcano – before thanking conservationists for taking care of the endangered animals.
Posting a number of his incredible snaps to Instagram, Hamilton wrote: “Every day in the motherland is more beautiful than the last.
“My second stop was Rwanda, where we hiked up a volcano to see gorillas in their natural habitat. It was mind blowing.
“They were so calm and beautiful, getting that close to them was a surreal experience that I will never forget.
“Thank you to the amazing conservationists that took care of us and are doing amazing work to ensure the safety of these beautiful creatures and thank you, Rwanda
Hamilton was similarly excited after exploring the Namibian desert last week.
He wrote then: “This year I’m spending my summer break doing something I’ve wanted to do for years.
“I’m finally tracing my roots through Africa and guys, to say this journey has been a grounding experience is an understatement.
“This has been a life changing reset. I feel like I have gained a new perspective on life, grown an even stronger love for animals and became even closer with my brothers who I’ve shared this special journey with.
“Everywhere I look I’m surrounded by so much beauty, and I feel truly re-centred and at peace.
“My first stop was Namibia, one of the most stunning places I’ve ever seen with my own eyes. Words and pictures do not do it justice.
“The hot air balloon ride was surreal.
“We had to land sideways which is definitely something I’ll never forget.
“I could not think of a better place to spend this time off. Sending everyone peace and light, I’m off to the next stop.”
