We bought the tour and met and paid advance 50% then we cancelled our program. But Mr. Ian is keep telling and making excuses to return our 50% advance. This has been almost 1 year and total about us $10,500 USD. Out of that we paid $5225 USD. We can show you the proof on demand. So please be careful before dealing with this operator. He might be good if you do not cancel program. But upon cancellation we see the professionalism and don't want to pay us our hard earned money. We are now taking this case to Rwanda association.

We really enjoyed our trip to akagera nat park organised by kawira safaris. Our guide Kevin was knowledgeable a lot about the wildlife and birds in the park.we learnt alot from him and had fun. We would highly recommended then to anyone planning to experience akagera national park while on a short trip in Kigali.

I've been on a handful of Safaris in east Africa and my trip with Ian and Kawira was by far the best. The guides were super accommodating and had great stories to tell. Couldn't have chosen a better way to see the gorillas in Rwanda and would recommend Ian and his crew to anyone!

We just returned from a 3 day tour of Kigali and a morning with the mountain gorilla. We arrived in Rwanda at night and were greeted by our driver and another staff member of the company who broke down our itinerary for us. They were such a friendly group to be with after a days worth of travel. They took us to our hotel, which was a lovely comfortable spot perched in the rolling hills of Kigali. The next day our real adventure began with a city tour of Kigali and an amazing lunch. The afternoon was spent driving towards the gorillas which was one of the most scenic drives I've even been on. Tarzan, our driver was great and we always felt safe with him leading the way. He got us all set up the morning of the gorillas and introduced us to guides we would be trekking with. Our time with the gorillas were absolutely amazing. Kawira Safaris did an amazing job of arranging it all for us!

We recently went a 7-day safari through Rwanda with Kawira Safari Ltd. We had the most amazing time. From Day 1, the staff were so helpful, helped us create the perfect safari program that covered everything we wanted to, and maintained very quick/efficient communication leading up to our arrival.
Our guide Kevin was amazing as we treeked the amazing Gorillas and the Chimpanzee, Lake Kivu was also nice, did a game drive in Akagera Nat Park saw dozens and dozens of animals very up close and personal. Our entire experience was amazing, and even though it was a budget safari, we truly felt we had the best possible experience.I would recommend this company to anyone travelling through Rwanda.
