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

Given the location, simply excellent is every aspect. The only comment we would make is to ensure that elderly or disabled clients are aware of the access - which is on foot up many steps (100+ steps)
