We went with Primate Safaris from Kigali, where we were met by our fabulous, friendly and informative guide, Alex Kagaba, who took us for breakfast, a tour of Kigali and a visit to the moving Genocide Museum. He then drove us north to Kinigi through the cleanest country you will ever see. I did not see a SINGLE piece of litter! We stayed at the comfortable Gorilla Mountain Lodge and next day had an amazing adventure. After an energetic 2.5 hour hike up to nearly 9,000 feet we spent an hour with the Sabyinyo family - with the 400lb patriarch silverback brushing nonchalantly past me. FANTASTIC!! And then a good hike down - excellent pack of trackers & guide. Next day a return to Kigali for a visit to their parliament building - with preserved bullet and rocket scars, and a different angle on the genocide. What a lovely country and such an impressive response to their dark and recent history. There are many countries that could benefit from emulating Rwanda!

On our recent trip to Rwanda we were looked after by Primate Safaris. A tremendous experience. Were we greeted by Phylis and our driver and guide , Mussa at our hotel. Phylis carefully explained our itinerary and the sights and activities we had planned . For the next three days we were looked after by Mussa - a friendly , professional and knowledgeable guide . He was punctual, drove us long distances (sometimes on challenging roads) and we always felt comfortable and safe . Mussa’s four wheel drive was immaculate and the supplied bottle water was appreciated . Mussa was able to ensure that our 2 tracking experiences (the Gorillas and Golden Monkeys in the Volcanoes National Park) were first class - truly ‘life highlights’. Thank you Mussa. You were fantastic.

It was a very well organised trip to Nyungwe forest. Billy was a great driver and guide, and everything went smoothly. We were lucky to get very close to both chimps and colobus monkeys. The contacts with the office and the preparations for the trip were quick and smooth. We will get back to Primate Safaris when we plan new trips to Rwanda or Uganda.

I flew on RwandAir for my annual trip to Rwanda to visit my daughter and family, highly recommend them, excellent service, very friendly, modern aircraft, will definitely fly with them again, the convenience for me is perfect too, as I live near Gatwick, Daughter is in Kigali. Try them, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
