An awe-inspiring experience!
5/5

Truly a once in a lifetime experience and the team exceeded my expectations. They were very responsive to my WhatsApp messages ensuring that all of the details were taken care of. We requested to make a change to our itinerary while on the ground and the team worked hard to accommodate us. It was much appreciated! Our guide Mico was very professional and extremely knowledgeable. He made sure that everything went smoothly and all we had to do was relax and take in the incredible experience. Thank you for enabling us to create such amazing memories! We would recommend your services to anyone traveling to Rwanda!

The Experience of a Lifetime
5/5

The high ratings for Golden Rwanda Safaris is completely justified! The email communications in the beginning were quick, and precise, as well as accommodating for a change of plans due to world events. They provided everything I required from pick up to drop off at the airport and everything in between including hotel accommodations before my departing evening flight. The accommodations were clean, quiet, and very lovely, and the food was delicious. I really appreciated the attention to detail, such as water bottles and snacks. I definitely recommend visiting the Genocide Memorial, it was a very powerful experience and made me appreciate how far the country has come in their process of truth and reconciliation. And of course, the gorillas are amazing. You get way closer than I could have imagined, but the Park Rangers make sure the animals are treated respectfully. One of the reasons I chose Rwanda for my visit to the gorillas. I looked at a range of safari prices, there are cheaper than Golden Rwanda, but the quality of the driver, vehicle, accommodations and food was worth the slightly higher price point. You will certainly get your money’s worth. I was traveling solo, and was well treated at all the locations, which is not always the case. I have been to Africa several times, but this was my first time to Rwanda, Golden Rwanda Safaris provides a superior safari experience and I highly reommend them!

An incredible experience
5/5

I visited Akagera with Golden Rwanda and had an incredible experience throughout. Frank communicated clearly and promptly, and was flexible on arrangements. It was very well-priced compared to competitors and the itinerary for Akagera was great to maximise time on game drives.

Taufique was a super guide on the day - very communicative, punctual, patient, and professional. The vehicle was clean, comfortable, and had amenities like a fridge and plugs for charging. Taufique had a great eye for spotting animals, and I was very pleased with what I saw! Meals included were good too

This is nature
4/5

I enjoyed 1 day private game drive. It was rather reasonable: $385 each including breakfast and lunch.
Unfortunately, we could see only buffalo among BIG5 from the distance. We could also come across zebra, impala, baboon, giraffe, hippo and crocodile. They said lions and elephants are sermon the day and the day before. Our guide drive said this is nature, animals are not always appear.

Best Rwanda Tour Guide
5/5

I highly recomment Golden Rwanda Safaris for your visit to Rwanda! From my booking request, they provided fast responses, helped with any questions, and customized my tour as requested. There was clear communication the whole process and no problems.
My tour guide, Taufique, was passionate, knowledgable, and friendly my entire visit. He really strived to make my visit in Rwanda the best possible! He is one of the best tour guides I have had!

True luxury, excellent organisation and communication, highly reliable and very friendly.
5/5

We had a truly great experience from the pickup at the airport to the drop-off on our last day. Everything was perfectly taken care off, the hotels (Governor's Residence in Kigali and Five Volcanoes at the national park) were wonderful and our hikes to see first the gorillas and then the golden monkeys were amazing. Food and service were very good and the little extras such as fresh water bottles in the extremely clean and tidy car, gaiters for the hikes and a foot massage and shoe cleaning after each bike provided for a feeling of luxury. Very good value for money! Would highly recommend choosing this tour operator.

Dream come true!!!
5/5

Trekking the mountain gorillas has been a dream of mine since I was a child and Golden Rwanda Safaris exceeded my expectations. I am a solo female traveler and, after speaking to Frank and reading glowing reviews, I had no hesitations about booking this company. I had a female guide, Ingrid, who made sure everything was punctual, safe, and organized. I learned so much about the culture and history of Rwanda from her and she made the trip so special and fun. I was able to spend the first day exploring a bit of Kigali, including the sobering Rwanda Genocide Memorial, which you can’t miss if you travel to Rwanda. The accommodations at Five Volcanoes were luxurious and comfortable and the staff was so kind. I could write a full memoir about the trek itself but suffice it to say that it was genuinely life changing. Spending an hour amongst the gorillas was the single most awe-inspiring experience of my life. Everyone truly cares about the conservation of the environment and these incredible animals, and you can rest assured that all your trekking money goes towards protecting the park. The logistics were all taken care of by Ingrid, who was excited to see me living my dream. Seeing the golden monkeys is also absolutely worth doing – you’re completely surrounded by them and they’re a joy to watch.

Huge thanks to Ingrid and Frank for making this the best Christmas ever – it was worth every penny that I saved. I would recommend Golden Rwanda Safaris a thousand times over to anyone traveling in Rwanda, and plan to book with them again when I return with my mom for more trekking.
