Awesome trip

Our Makario Safaris guide, Vincent, was lovely and very informative, and our whole experience was amazing. The trek to see the Gorillas was hard (even the "easy/medium" rated trek), but the time with the Gorillas was an awesome experience that ore than made up for that. Our tour also included a visit to the cultural village which was a lot of fun, and a visit to the Genocide Memorial which was sobering but rewarding and a trip to an art co-operative run by an orphan of the genocide. The whole tour was well organised - from the time we were first met at the airport customs area for our pcr test at the start, to being assisted at check-in for our flight when we left. Thank you!

Outstanding Experience with Makario Safaris.

I spent a month traveling in East Africa (Rwanda, Tanzania, and Zanzibar). The entire trip was organized by Makario Safaris and it was an amazing trip. I worked with Mwaka Utanje who was patient, flexible, very responsive, and able to work in English or French. She helped me through the issues I had with making the wire transfers and everything fell into place. She organized my trip through three different agents, and it was seamless. Each portion of my trip exceeded my expectations. The accommodations were wonderful.

Godefroid, my guide through Rwanda was amazing. His knowledge of animals, birds, and Rwanda itself was fabulous. I learned so much while enjoying it all. We went to three National Parks, saw Gorillas, Golden Monkeys, Chimpanzees and so many animals in Akagera. I recommend it all.

The game drives in Tanzania were wonderful also, seeing all the animals that live there.

I was a solo traveler and never once felt unsure or unsafe. I would highly recommend Makario Safaris for travels in East Africa.

Thank you very much for this perfect trip

All was very good. The transports, the communication, the lodges, the safaris. The driver was very friendly.

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.
