Amazing trip to the Akagera National park! Our great guide picked us up at the hotel precisely and drove us to the park. He had very much knowledge and had a good answer to all our questions. 1000 hills safari is a serious company with good customer care. 1000 percent recommended if you are going to Rwanda.

I did the Akagera Park and the Gorilla trekking with 1000 hills and it was the best experience ever!! Totally recomended! The tour was fantastic, I had an amazing time and my guide Augustin was great! He was very friedly, knew a lot of everything and responded to all my questions! I had to change my tour a bit because I had to move my return ticket and 1000 hills helped me on everything, they even made sure I had time to get my PCR to return. I totally recommend it! It's a once in a life-time experience! Thank you to 1000 hills, to Augustin and to Leo! Emilia

I ended up being the only person on the tour. Augustin fetched me in Muhanga and we made our way to Kibuye. Lake Kivu is incredibly beautiful. Our boat made a few extra stops on other islands which was very special. Lunch and the hotel setting was superb. I would do this day tour again tomorrow! Thank you Placide and Augustin 🌟

This 2-day tour is an absolute must! The experience is simply priceless! From Kigali, you will drive about 2 hours to Musanze where you will spend the night. Once you settle in your hotel in Musanze (including in the tour) you can have a walk and enjoy the views over the volcanoes which are the natural border between Rwanda, Uganda and DRC. Early morning the day after, you will drive about 15 minutes to the Volcanoes National Park where you will have hot/cold beverages available while you have your short safety briefing with other people coming for the tour. Then you have a short drive to the starting point and off you go for your trekk that should be around 2h with a few stops to take stunning pictures of the views. Once you arrive in the park, the guide will liaise with rangers who will tell them where the gorillas are so you can find them easily. Finally, the unique moment has arrived! you will spend 1h watching gorillas from a few feet away in their natural habitat! Simply mesmerizing! I can only recommend this tour! Just remember the Gorilla trekking permit is not included so the company will send you the link to the website to buy it (currently 1500USD). It is quite a lot but definitely worth it. The money is used to ensure the gorillas population increase and their habitat protected and extended. The gorillas used to be about 400 individuals 10 years ago and now almost 700 so you are helping a good cause :) Augustin, the guide who picked me up was amazing! Friendly and full of knowledge, he made me discover Kigali before taking the road to Musanze and stopped to allow me to take some amazing pictures. Easily reachable via phone/whatsapp and quick to respond, the whole experience was as smooth as possible!
