Rwanda - GO NOW!
5/5

In early September I decided to book a trip to Rwanda and by mid-October I was staring at Muhoza the Silverback. I could not have pulled off such a successful trip without Safari 2 Gorilla Tours and Aron. S2G’s planning, communication, and execution of schedule was key to a solo traveler such as me, particularly during these challenging covid times. Because no one is getting back out there yet, I essentially had private tours for a totally reasonable cost. Aron customized two tours for me, and I went on both of them (starting and returning to Kigali, I was in Rwanda the whole time). Tour one was a five-day, two-park primate adventure, with Danny as my trusted driver/tour guide/translator/and all-around great company! Much joy was driving between the parks, seeing all of Rwanda and her busy, productive people and learning about the local culture from Danny. Tour two was a three-day Akagera NP safari, with a full day of game drive and a morning boat tour of Lake Ihema. Danny was again my driver/compadre for the Akagera tour. He drove the 8 hour park loop as our ranger and I spotted all of the safari animals – again, private tours right now! The hotels they selected along the way were very nice (especially the Ingagi Park View Lodge), and the schedule allowed for downtime between the activities. This was a totally unique adventure during a just a weird, strange time. But Rwanda has this covid issue under control better than any other country right now. If you want the feeling of being the “only one there”, right now is the time to go, Rwanda is the place to go, and Safari 2 Gorillas is the outfit to call!

Amazing
5/5

We highly recommend travelling with Safari 2 Gorilla Tours. Our tour guide Aron made our trip to Queen Elizabeth Nationalpark unforgettable. He was always pleasant, attentive and reliable. Thanks to him we got to see so many animals, even a leopard (very rare !) and some lions. He organized even a chimpanzee trekking for us. It was a fantastic experience ! Thanks again Aron !

Two-Day Akagera Game Drive
5/5

We had a wonderful time on our two-day Akagera trip we booked with Safari2GorilllaTours!! We were picked up promptly the first morning, at our accommodations in Kigali, by our guide Martin. Upon arrival at Akagera, we stopped for lunch at the Akagera Game Lodge, and checked in to our rooms. We then left for an afternoon boat tour of Lake Ihema, where we saw many hippos, crocodiles, birds, and elephants! We then went on a short game drive around the southern end of the park, where we saw more elephants, hippos, warthogs, many many zebras and other animals. We returned to the lodge for our buffet dinner (delicious grilled meats!), pre-ordered our sack lunches for the next day's drive, and settled in to our very comfortable air-conditioned rooms, with wonderful amenities and views of Lake Ihema.

The next morning, we had breakfast from the very large buffet offered, picked up our lunches, and were off by 6:30 a.m. We toured most of the day, seeing large groups of animals, including zebras, waterbucks, impalas,cape bufffalos, elephants (including a very large group coming to the water to drink!), giraffes, warthogs, iguanas, and many varieties of birds. We didn't expect to see the rhinos or lions, as they are very shy and that was okay, just knowing they were out there somewhere was thrilling!

We so enjoyed this tour, even the "African Massage" of the rough roads in the park. We were returned to Kigali in plenty of time for dinner out.


Highly recommend Safari2GorillaTours!! Thank you, Aaron and Martin!

The experience we had was fantastic, meeting the gorillas is unbelievable- once in a lifetime...
The service we've got from Safari 2 Gorilla Tours was perfect- from the beginning all the communication with Aron was very clear and comfortable. When we arrive Martin the driver was waiting for us, he was very nice, professional and he took really good care of us all the way to the safari.

Truly amazing experience!
5/5

Aron communicated to use via whatsapp which made it so much easier - he was very efficient with his responses and happy to answer the countless questions we had before we even booked the trip! After booking, he laid out a clear itinerary and followed up to ensure we were aware of the process etc and also put us in touch with our driver, Martin beforehand.

Martin was very prompt with picking us up from our hotel. He drove us from Kigali to Bwindi National Park, helping with the border crossing. He was great company and knowledgeable about Kigali, Rwanda, Uganda etc and happy to share his wisdom.

The tour itself is once in a lifetime experience - we trekked for about 2 hours before finding the gorillas. The guide & porters, again, were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

Thanks Safari 2 Gorillas Tours!
