          Very convenient, great guide
          Went with my 15 yo daughter. Two days, one night -- Saturday morning pickup in Kigali, Sunday evening return. Judith arranged everything, no muss no fuss. Very simple and easy. We saw lots of zebras, lots of hippos and birds (on the lake cruise), one buffalo, one elephant. No lions or leopards, but that's just random chance. What moved this from four stars to five was the driver / guide, Irere. Friendly, punctual, patient, and incredibly knowledgeable about the wildlife and the birds. Ask for Irere -- *especially* if you are a bird person. The birds may be less dramatic than lions or elephants, but there are a fantastic variety of them, and if you have a knowledgeable guide they can be very interesting. Recommended.

          Female powered, timely communication, professional service
          Judith Safaris is a female powered tour company that provides customized tours and packaged tours. We got recommendations from multiple sources (NGO run by a friend, female powered resort…), and didn’t regret to cooperate with them for a customized two week tour throughout Rwanda. Alice our driver is patient, helpful, punctual, and friendly. She is not afraid to take challenges and did her best to make sure we are comfortable and happy during the road trip. She also tried to provide many useful recommendations to make our trip more relaxing and interesting. When we were registering for our gorilla trekking trip in Volcanoes National Park, I was proud but a bit sad to see Alice was the only female guide amongst almost 40 guides that day. The communication we had with their back office when we were planning the details of the itinerary, and during our trip was very timely and helpful as well. Please consider to work with Judith!

          Just like visiting family
          During the 2 years of COVID, the gorillas apparently missed the "visitors" so much they wandered down into the local villages looking for them. We felt privileged to visit these primates in their home jungle. Our guide, porters and gunman were exceptional. Our gorilla family was quite a mobile one, which meant we had to walk quite awhile to catch up, helped by porters through dense jungle of the Virunga Mtns. On arrival, our family was sleeping, or trying to without much success due to the antics of the littlest member of the troupe who kept jumping on the other gorillas trying to entice them to play. We visited for an hour watching them play, snooze, eat and interact with each other. Our guide was "speaking" to the family anytime they appeared unsettled which resulted in a spectacular visit for us. We started to leave when the Silverback decided it was time for the family to move on as well, and the entire family trouped past us, nearly trodding on our toes. We got it all on film and video and we were delighted with our experience. Top knotch service by our guides and porters, who helped us over the jungle floor which is littered with vegetation, fall tree trunks and vines. It was a memorable day and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

          We had an amazing experience with Judithsafaris. Everything was set according to ours demands et we were more than amazed by the tour. Our guide Paul was wonderful, very Kind and had some fun facts to share with us. We had to chance to do the royal ballon. We were just à little disappointed by the food because we wanted to eat some local specialites but other than that, it was good. Maybe include some binoculars. Thank you for a beautiful safari

          Visiting Rwanda & Uganda
          Perfect organized, did a lot in one week! From Gorilla trekking in Uganda, to chimpanzee trekking in the south. Thanks for the great experience.

          I learned so much about Rwanda
          I visited Rwanda as a solo traveler for the first time ever - both Rwanda & solo traveling as a first time. I'm so thankful I chose Judith Safari to book my gorilla & coffee plantation tour over two days. One reason I picked them was because they are woman owned, woman led. We gotta' support each other! They took care of everything. It was so easy! I even had a 4am pickup for the gorillas - which felt a little scary, meeting a stranger from the other side of the planet to take me to mysterious places in the dark. The gorilla experience is like visiting another planet and the coffee tour was incredibly educational. I'll never look at coffee the same! Both experiences were on opposite ends of the country (N & S) so I got to see so much without realizing it when I booked the trip. My guide was fantastic and pointed out things I wouldn't have realized had significance - like crossing a bridge where the Nile originates! I highly recommend this to anyone.

          Kigali and surroundings with Miko
          We hired a car with driver who came to pick us up at the airport. Everything was super well organised. Mico was not only a driver but showed himself to be a true tour guide. He came up with good ideas for an initial exploration of Kigali and its surroundings. Thank you Judith Safaris and Mico

          Fun experience
          I contacted Judith Safari tours for a 2 days trip to Kibuye, the Huye Coffee Plantation and the King’s Palace Museum. They arrived on time to pick me up and the guides were very professional and welcoming. 100% recommend the company!

          A different way to see Kigali - get the leg muscles working !!!
          Kigali by bike !!! Joe what does that involve??? To start with a lot of cycling up and down hills . Kigali is not flat !! While the hills are not super steep some are testing in the heat as one seems to go on forever !! Got picked up from my hotel at 8 am - bike (specialised mountain bike )came in 3 parts on a motor bike 😀😀😀 was put together by my guide Off we set - up hill to start and then a lot of down hill to the memorial museum. Stopped for a tour and it's not for the faint hearted - some of the accounts of fairly traumatic ! Off then for a long cycling up and down hills to vision city - and a bit of off road to see some of the big house construction !! Then through the wealthy part of town with a lot of large mansions !!! Came to the campaign against genocide museum for a fantastic tour with one of the best tour guides I have ever had - Sandrine - she has so much passion in explaining the history and how Rwanda is recovering ! Then off for a lunch in picturesque place before heading back to my hotel

          Agashya family welcomes us to share a moment in the jungle
          I didn't know what to expect. It was a long walk through difficult terrain. We were encouraged to hire porters to carry our bags and help us along the more difficult spots. These porters were once the poachers in these jungles, now they support themselves and their families by helping us get to experience the wonder of these magnificent creatures. As we got close to our Gorilla family (The Agashya family) I started to feel electrified and giddy. Was I really going to spend an hour with Gorillas??? Our family was one of the largest with 21 members and 3 silverbacks. Gorillas do not kick out the alpha once he gets old. His sons, though stronger than him, respect his place in the family until death. We turned a corner and our amazing guide Roger warns us that the gorillas are close and then suddenyl I am 4 feet away from the giant alpha silverback.!!! I was initially shocked, how were we permitted to be so close???, other Gorillas were grazing only a few more feet away, I was certain we were going to be attacked but we were barely acknowledged. I am in awe of how tolerant and accepting these Gorillas are. We watched lovers flirt and a little chest-beating to show prowess, we watched children jump and play. We saw young ones fall out of trees and giant silverbacks lie on their backs and play with their feet. This was the experience of a lifetime. I cannot even begin to explain the feelings that this trip left me with or the warmth in my heart at being able to have this experience. I am ever greatful of the guides, guards and porters that all made this an epic day to remember.

          This company and their guides go the extra mile.
          This company and their guides go the extra mile. We met one of the guides (Anaclet) while he was with clients in Nyungee (see desconcertado's review below). While we were just talking to him, he provided great advise and organised us a taxi to make our life easier and as a simple good gesture. We later contacted to rent a 4x4 for us to do a self drive tour of Anakarga National Park. When he dropped the 4x4 to our hotel we told him our plans and he rang ahead to set us up with his recommended on site park guide and organised our hotel. Great service. Thanks Anaclet and the team a Judith safaris.

        I am not sure if I had one favorite part of this trip. Rwanda is beautiful. Judith Safaris was professional and easy to work with. My tour guide, Joana was like family. The Memorial was sad but a tribute to those who lost their lives and, the future of a nation. I did not stay long enough. I plan to return and I plan to arrange my trip with Judith Safaris.

        There are 233 memorial centers in Rwanda. This one is in Nyamata. 45,000 people were killed in Nyamata alone and 10,000 in this church. There are rows and rows of clothes of the people who were killed during the genocide, including children's clothes :( Never, never again in any part of our world!
