High quality small group tour operator for Central Africa

The tour company arranged a 1 week tour for myself from Rwanda to DR Congo and back. Email communication was excellent and the tour owner (Eraste) personally accompanied me on the tour and arranged the drivers and other transportation and facilitated the visa approval and border crossings at Bukavu and Goma.

Everything on the itinerary was provided and there was flexibility to make changes as requested(such as staying in the National Park) or required. Accommodation was very good and all meals were good. Eraste speaks fluent English (and French) and was well-informed, totally professional and kind and made good company on the tour.

The tour was good value for money for a private tour and I would thoroughly recommend this company and this tour to anyone.

Exceptional tour operator, with unforgettable and meticulously planned travel

Joseph our guide is a kind person, wanted for us to be as much as possible relaxed, only for us to enjoy the Safari. We saw eraste the first day of the safari, communication was smooth and clear, this was the best service we had from a tour operator for the last 5 years. Thanks to Joseph for the exeptional 3 days in Akagera park. We got to see the Big 5. Also for your kindness and attention.

Just Excellent!

I spent 6 days in Rwanda & DRC and enjoyed every moment of the trip! Eraste was extremely helpful during the whole planning process. The activities were well organized and the hotels were the perfect places to relax. Highly recommended! I am already planning the next trip with Empirical Tour and Travel!

reliable and responsible

our tour with Eraste to Rwanda-Congo-Uganda:
everything is very good and on schedule. very nice people. you can trust them. I recommend them 100% from my experience

Empirical Tour and Travel is a perfect fit for adventurous and personal travel in East Africa

You absolutely must travel with Empirical Tour and Travel! I was so impressed with our trip and recommend Eraste and the company to anyone traveling to East Africa. Our three week trip to Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania was absolutely incredible and all that credit is due to our tour company.

When comparing tour companies, I was most attracted to Empirical Tour and Travel because of the ability to create our own plan and not feel caught up in a large Tour group. The communication prior to the trip was clear and easy to manage and Eraste was very flexible to accommodate our travel preferences. He went above and beyond to ensure that we had a special experience each day that was catered to our interests in exposed us to a variety of activities, including multiple safari, gorilla, trekking, cultural tours, banana beer making, and so much more. The accommodations and restaurants selected for our tour were fantastic with a very comfortable amenities and stunning views. Empirical Tour and Travel brings a high-level of professionalism and reliability and managed every detail so we could enjoy being present on our vacation. The package was absolutely a great value for the price. 10/10 recommend for a trip of a lifetime!
