Reactive and reliable
Golden safari was very helpful to help us choose our safari trip to Akagera. They where very kind and answered all my questions very fast. The also help us to buy our permit for Gorillas. I recommand them warmly.
An Amazing Day Trip
We booked a 1-day trip to Akagera with my sister and we really enjoyed it. We appreciated the whole experience from booking to the actual visit to the park. We were able to see many animals such as baboons, impalas, elephants, zebras, eagles, hippos, crocodiles... Next time, we will book more says in order to enjoy the night and boat safari as well as visit other national parcs. I really recommend Golden Safari Rwanda and will surely come back!
Fun Day Trip!
We did the Akagera 1-day trip with Golden Rwanda Safaris. We were able to book and pay everything online, and closer to the date they put us in touch with the driver.
The pick-up was timely, the car was comfortable, clean and spacious and the best surprise was that it was only our group! The park was nice and the driver worked hard to get us many animal sightings. We had lunch at the park which was nice as well. We returned to the hotel happy!
There was a small misunderstanding on breakfast and the COVID test (we did not know it was needed) but we engaged with the owner who apologized profusely and gave us a partial refund. Mistakes can happen of course so we very much welcome the effort to make it right! Would definitively reach out to them if we are ever in Rwanda again.
I booked my trip, which included a gorilla trek in Volcanoes National Park, a 2-day safari in Akagera and a Kigali city tour, in 2019 for June 2020. 2 Years of COVID craziness (especially as I was living in Hong Kong, which has the most stringent and chaotic travel restrictions in the world), led to constant changes and re-bookings on my part. Throughout Frank was incredibly helpful and patient...I felt so bad about all of the chaos, but he always accommodated me.
The trip itself went perfectly - not a complaint. The accommodations and food Frank selected were terrific, and he actually provided me with more than I was expecting. My guide and driver, Claude, was also extremely knowledgeable, a great driver and a lot of fun. Both Frank and Claude were open and gave a lot of personal insight into Rwanda's sad recent history.
As a bonus, the vehicle was comfortable, and we saw everything there was to see on the safari in Akagera. I had such an amazing time that I'm planning on returning with some of my family members and would gladly use Golden Rwanda Safaris again, without hesitation.
Amazing tour of Rwanda with resourceful and knowledgeable Guide
We had a fantastic 5 days tour of Rwanda with Golden Rwanda in June 2022. The tour operator was suggested by a long time friend who often travels to Rwanda for business.
We visited the Nyungwe National Park and Volcanoes National Park and on the way we stopped over at Lake Kiwu. We saw primates, had great treks in the rain forest and on Mount Bisoke and enjoyed the beauty of the Rwandan hilly landscape. We really liked all the hotels that we stayed at: the customer service was excellent and the rooms and dining were up to the best standards.
Our guide Annie (one of 5 female guides in the country) was the best ambassador for Rwanda. She is extremely knowledgeable about the nature, geography and history of the country. She could answer all our questions. She also helped us getting the right gear for the treks (we came from a conference and only had urban clothing). More importantly she was extremely friendly and has great humour, which made for a very fun tour and great conversations during the drives.
Frank from Golden Rwanda was very helpful in suggesting the right itinerary for us and very flexible in designing it based on our preferences. He was very quick in responding to our emails which made for an easy planning. He is a perfectionist that strives to provide the best customer experience.
We would definitely recommend Golden Rwanda. Great value for money, the best guide and attention to all details made us love our trip. We cannot wait to be back in Rwanda and have another tour with them!
