Trond, Norway

A very interesting tour of Rwanda. Exploring Kigali, several genocide memorial centers, local community experiences and a gorilla safari. Very well organized with Peter, our local guide and driver and Miriam, the owner and guide. My wife and I were the whole group, and Miriam and Peter became friends. Kigali is a modern town, and we learned a lot about the genocide in 1994. We would actually like to find out more about the reconciliation afterward. Sharing the daily life of a family in a local village was very interesting, and the gorilla safari was amazing. We had never dreamt of coming so close to them. We were also impressed by the cleanliness all over the country and the beauty of the thousand green hills. Read more

Karen, Germany

Amazing introduction to Uganda's primate wildlife We spent a week traveling with Kagera Safaris through Uganda in early June. The trip in itself, our encounters with Ugandan wildlife, in particular, the gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the chimpanzees in Kibale Forest, was stunning. Driving through the ever changing, beautiful landscape and getting in close touch with Ugandans made the experience unique. Miriam from Kagera Safaris provided excellent service already prior to the trip, accommodating our requests and giving excellent advice. Our driver and guide Patrick proved an extremely knowledgeable person which allowed us to learn about and experience Uganda to the fullest. Highly recommended! Read more
