Overall Impressions

Lodging was all top-notch. Itinerary was excellent. Gorillas, golden monkeys and chimps all well worth the fee. Glad we got to see more of Rwanda, since it's a fascinating country. Only negative was the boat trip across Lake Kivu. Lost power several times and weren't dropped off where we expected to be. Also, though the guides were good, they weren't great. Very accommodating but not very proactive.

Countries Visited


Amazing country. Beautiful and fascinating.

Accommodation Visited

Kigali Serena Hotel

Very nice. Large room, nice accommodations, great breakfast. But we didn't stay there long enough to really experience all its amenities.

One and Only Nyungwe House

Fabulous. Way exceeded our expectations. Beautiful setting, excellent food. Amazing service. Absolutely no complaints.

Lake Kivu Serena Hotel

Also very nice (like the Kigali Serena Hotel). We did get to experience this hotel for more time and enjoyed it very much.

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

Also incredible. The service was unbelievable as was the setting. Would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Rwanda to see the gorillas.
