Well organized excursion and close follow-up on bookings

Mid-November 2022 I participated to the mountain gorilla excursion, organized by Makario Safaris.
Up to the date of the trekking, the tour operator was closely following up on all arrangements (questions from our travel group, practicalities, etc.).
On the day of the trekking, the tour operator came to our hotel to ensure that everybody was en route to the right destination and with the right group. Our driver was very kind and also our guide on site was very nice and taught us everything we wanted to know about the gorillas (same for the trackers, who ensured our safety and following the instructions when approaching the gorilla family).

Meeting Pablo's family was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, which I would recommend anybody travelling to Rwanda!
At first, I was frozen to the ground when seeing them for the first time, but the guide and the trackers ensured that we all felt safe and got more comfortable overtime. They did a great job and the gorillas were amazing too! :)

Organised and reliable

I had a great day out with friends on Safari with Makario. The driver & guide was excellent. Would recommend this company.

Good experience, well organized

We paid 340$ for a 1-day safari.

The organizer was very kind and answered every question we had before arriving. The departure was on time. The car/truck was very good and comfortable.

We had some issues with the mandatory covid test which is useless since we were all already in the car for 2 hours and we do not approach the animals. We almost missed the boat ride because the waiting line was too long, maybe it was bad luck, but we made it so it's ok.

Other than that, the driver was excellent, and most importantly he spotted every detail and guessed right on every direction to see all the animals we wanted.
Crocodiles, hippos, birds, warthog, zebras, lions, elephants, buffalos, giraffes are the animals we spotted, not far from us! It was amazing.

It was a great experience and I do recommend it.

Very professionel and friendly. I felt in good hands all the way.

I booked the one day gorilla visit. It was an amazing experience. Makario Safaris was very efficient from day one. Answered all our many questions, arranged a perfect schedule, comfortable transport and very kind and professionel driver and guide.
I would use Makario Safaris again.

Makario Safaris does go a long way to make your safari a success

We went to Akagera National Park in Rwanda from Kigali. A one-day trip. Communication was very timely and clear. Starting at 5:00 am on a quite Sunday morning, the trip to Akagera was already an experience. Along the way we had breakfast and coffee. The Landrover was comfortable, and the driver very skilled and diligent. We drove all the way from South to North of the Park, having an excellent lunch in between. In the morning we had a boat trip and already saw a lot of animals and birds, but late afternoon arriving in the North of the Park we also saw the elephant herd and the magnificent plane with an abundance of animals. We can surely recommend the tour.
