Very professional and well organised

Our experience with Golden Rwanda Safaris has been very unique. Our guide has been helpful and friendly, guiding us through the tour in an excellent way. I am very satisfied with my experience and I would recommend to anyone!

best tour guides on the planet

it was a rather spontaneous trip but the tour operator and especially the tour guide who was assigned to me made it a great experience. i really knew they love what they do and care about the animals, environment and their customers so much. very welcoming people, the safari was great even though i missed out on lions and leopards. Got to see a huge herd of giraffes as well as hippos, elefants, and thousands of zebras and impalas though :) 10/10 would do it again

Golden Rwanda Safaris was outstanding from A to Z. Every aspect was wonderful.

We spent three days/nights in Akagera National Park in the lush green of the November wet season. Golden Rwanda Safaris took great care of us from pick up to drop off. The selection of accommodations was fantastic; the Akagera Game Lodge was wonderful and the Karenge Bush Camp was "glamping" of the best kind -- superb food and service all along. Most important, our guide and driver Bosco was kind and knowledgeable and very committed to doing a great job. Because of his good decisions, we saw elephants, giraffe, lions, hippos, impala and an amazing array of birds etc., all just feet away. The night drive is highly recommended -- as long as you don't mind watching lions catch and eat a zebra. The boat tour of Lake Ikema was also a treasured experience, so many birds and scary crocodiles. So much fun and Golden Rwanda Safaris and Bosco made it happen.

Kind and responsive to our request

For all of us was the first safari ever and we're more than excited now. Taufique was a wonderful and very kind guide! He showed us the wonders of Akagera Park, stopping each time we asked him in the perfect spots to look at the animals!

The experience was amazing even though it rained at certain times, in fact, thanks to the opening jeep roof we spotted lots of animals: giraffes, elephants, antelopes, baboons, hippos, and thanks to the funny and immersive boat trip option even a crocodile in the lake!

We had just some troubles with the pickup time, cause the jeep broke a few minutes before and the guide was a little bit late, but we forgot immediately this little problem thanks to the amazing and unique experience that Taufique gave us live!

Frank and team were everything we hoped a tour operator would be: caring, responsive, honest

GoldenRwanda were excellent tour operators, as good as we hoped for. Frank and Gad were extremely responsive and communicative by email, always got a response within a few hours. They were able to adapt quickly to our changing plans both before and during the trip. The trip was exactly as promised, no "bait and switch", and given the expense of individual permits, was good value for money. The residences were stellar and top quality even in remote areas, clean and with great hospitality, Our driver Jean-Claude became our friend and family. The cars were very comfortable and we felt completely safe and secure even on poor roads. Our tour covered Kigali and 3 NPs in 3 different corners of Rwanda, Nyungwe, Volcanoes, and Akagera. The encounters with gorillas and chimpanzees we shall remember for the rest of our lives. Our experiences in Kigali, including the genocide memorial, were unforgettable, and Rwanda is a moving tribute to the human spirit and its ability to move beyond unimaginable horror to recover humanity, humility and hospitality. Rwanda is one of the most beautiful places in the world, both visually and spiritually, and noone should miss the opportunity to visit if they can. And for those who do visit, GoldenRwanda will be among the best possible hosts and guides for the trip.

Great service from start to finish

Golden Rwanda Safari were great from working with me to modify the tour to fit my interests and time, through to first pick up and drop off at the airport. Jean Claude, my driver guide, was thoughtful and attentive, providing me with useful information throughout our time together. The experiences in Volcanoes National Park were exceptional, as was the accommodation at the 5 Volcanoes. Definitely recommend, and I hope to be able to travel with them myself again soon

Best way to see Akagera

This is really great value for money. If you have the chance, go with Jean Claude. He is the nicest person and he really goes the extra mile to make sure that you have the greatest experience possible - and that you see as many animals as possible. Fully recommend booking with Golden Rwanda Safari.

It is a reliable operator, which responds very quick.

I only booked a 13 day round trip two weeks prior to the day of arrival. Thanks to the quick responses of the operator everything we wanted was possible. And we had a great driver/guide to who was open for our requests to grap lunch, dinner or drinks outside the hotels.

Had the best time from organising the trip with Frank to the safari itself! I was a solo female traveler so my mind was put at ease with the quick responses to all my questions. My guide muhamed was 10/10, I had so much fun, felt safe and a life long memories were made!
