Everyone we ran into in Rwanda was so friendly, kind and proud of their country.  The service they provided was excellent.  We had a wonderful time getting to know them better.

Our guide was AMAZING.  We got to know more about Rwanda and its people because we spent so much time with him.   He stopped frequently to point out all the different birds to us or show us a particular view.  He helped us get on the gorilla hikes that suited our fitness and interests. He let us know exactly how each day was going to play out so we could be ready with the right clothing and water / snacks.

All the guides for the tours were very knowledgeable and quite entertaining.  They were concerned with our enjoyment and our safety. The porters were invaluable – they not only carried your pack (filled w. camera equipment & water) but also helped us up the steep grades and along ledges.

The landscape was as spectacular as the wildlife in Rwanda.  Pictures do not do it justice.  Seeing three different gorillas families was the highlight but there was so much more to see. The Golden monkeys were gorgeous.  Nyungwe was a beautiful park filled with primates and birds.  We saw chimps, mona, vervet , blue, mangabeys, mountain  and colobus monkeys.

We changed one of the tours (the waterfall one) and went birding for an entire day instead.   We saw tonnes of birds including a Great Blue Turaco and many different kinds of sunbirds and hawks.

One day we will get to the UK and actually the meet the wonderful people who plan these incredible vacations for us.  Thank you for all the help you give us.
