Gorilla View was a great choice for our gorilla trekking base. The staff was so friendly and always met us with a smile. Food was good not glamorous but good hearty food. The cottages are not 5 star but certainly not "roughing it" Plenty of hot water, nice linens, fireplace. Staff came and built a fire every day in our room, hot water bottles at night and cleaned our muddy boots so that they looked like new! Please remember to tip, they make little money and are sooo appreciative of a couple dollars. Do beware prices of alcoholic drinks. Beer is cheap but a bottle of cheap South African white wine was $62. Rwanda is a beautiful country with the hardest working people I have ever see.!
Of course the gorillas are the highlight. We spent 2 days with 2 different groups and both days were incredible!!
