Jean Claude was my driver/guide. he was lovely and excellent company. All activities were well organised. Accomodation was all very nice... Villa Gorilla was awesome!!!! and the best food of the trip! Amazing staff and great location.
The gorilla trek was amazing!!! I still can't believe that I did it! Very well organised and guides and traders were great. Get a Porter!!! I didn't think it was going to be neccessary as my backpack was not heavy but they were super helpful and you are providing work for someone who might instead be poaching.
The chimpanzee tracking was fun but physically challenging. Much harder than the gorillas. Really steep hills and we had to move quite quickly to keep up with them. Definitely get a porter for this one.
Really people in rwanda are so friendly and welcoming, I cannot wait to go back another time.
A wonderful trip, thank you so much for organising such a great experience !
