OH…MY…GOODNESS!!! WHAT a wonderful trip!!!!!! Glenn and I had an absolutely fantastic visit to Rwanda. Everything went perfectly smoothly. It couldn’t have been better. You know, we went there to see gorillas, but the conversations and time spent with our guide Mussa were the most memorable. Mussa should be the next Minister of Tourism. He was so welcoming, fun, charming, had a great sense of humor, an easy smile, and was quick to tease and laugh. We absolutely loved him…

Of course, the gorillas were fantastic. Our group, the Agaysha group, decided to spend a lot of time on the move, so it took a couple hours to find them. That was just what we wanted, a true tracking experience where we (well, the trackers) had to work a little find them in the wild. We would definitely encourage you to promote the golden monkeys. We felt that they were just as enjoyable as the gorillas. We could get so close and they were so beautiful.

Just back from a very successful trip to Rwanda. What a stunning country, beautiful people and of course the gorillas! We visited Hirwa group which included a 2 day old baby. I’d have to say this will be in the top 5 experiences of a lifetime.

Our guide, J.D. was very good. He was polite and friendly and really looked after us well.

We did the Genocide Memorial and were very glad we did. It was very emotional and we would recommend to anyone visiting Rwanda to go there regardless of whether they know anything about Rwandan history or not. It’s one of those places that is essential from a human perspective.

Then on to the Mountain Gorilla View Lodge which was brilliant. The staff were friendly, the rooms huge with fireplaces in each, the food was excellent and the view spectacular.

The next day we went to see the gorillas. The Hirwa groups were great as the photos show. They were only 15 minutes walk from the road.

So to sum up, it was brilliant thank you very much. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
