Reviews for Gorilla and chimpanzee tracking vacation in Rwanda


review 10 Mar 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Discounting being within an arms length of a family of Gorilla's, Seeing how beautiful Rwanda is as a country and how friendly the people are, considering their recent history was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

We had 3 days in Volcanoes national park, which was a little too long once you'd seen the gorillas and other sights. We only had 1 day round Lake Kivu so would have liked another day there.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely, I know the cost of Gorilla & other permits are expensive, plus tips for guides and trackers, but these people need the income so they don't revert to poaching. Rwanda are developing "community" living and it was apparent to see how lives & homes have improved since 2000.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

4.5 stars
