Makario Trip to Gorillas

We would like to extend our thanks for a fab well organised trip. The Bishops House was a lovely boutique hotel, and the staff service was excellent. The Gorilla hike, although VERY difficult, we are very glad we did it and have now had the most amazing experience of been up close with this wonderful animals. Credit must go to the way the gorillas have been protected and how the everyone in the area is part of the conservation effort. Eric was a wonderful guide, he was interesting, informed and shared so much with us, including his birding skills. We were so glad he recommended the twin lakes tour, wow what a view and the birdlife. Th lodge (Virunga Lodge) is beautiful and authentic but a bit expensive. Thank you for my gift, I will keep it as a cosmetic bag, and always think of our fantastic time in Rwanda. Our thanks to Eric as he was really good, and is highly recommended. Communication was by email and Mwaka always got back to me immediately. ***** Star treatement by Makario and Eric

Great tour operators

I worked with Makario Safaris as a Rwanda Safaris Guide. They gave me itineraries on time and briefed me for the trip, they checked on me throughout the trip. I would like to recommend them as prefered ground handlers in Rwanda and East Africa.

I worked on client safari with Makario Safaris

Makario Safaris is relatively new in the safari business, we found the staff are very knowledgable and helpful. Their experience, knowledge and diligence are visible from their near-perfect customer services to the advice they render to our clients. I strongly recommend Makario safari for Rwanda safaris.

Makario provided First Class Service, even surpassing my expectations!

Let me start by saying that Makario Safaris contact person, M/S Mwaka , was very helpful and provided service beyond expectations.
Any emails, calls and messages were responded to timeously, without delay, and the responses were relevant to my queries. Any time I was told that they would revert, this would happen in a timeous way.
Makario are very knowledgeable in the offerings in Rwanda, the Great Lakes region as well as East Africa.They will make you feel "at home", away from home.
Our holiday was fantastic, memorable and well coordinated and I will not hesitate to recommend anyone travelling to Rwanda and the Great Lakes region to use Makario Safaris for their bookings and travel.

Makario Safaris provided us a warm, thoughtful, safe extraordinary experience.

Makario Safaris provided us an itinerary and an experience that was thoughtful for our group of 5 and it exceeded our expectations. We were greeted from the start and ushered through our itinerary with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Our driver,Peter, was very personable and a perfect host. He gave us information about the country, kindly kept us on schedule and helped us find certain unscheduled shopping places for first aid supplies etc. We all became quite attached to him. The hotels we stayed in (Serena Hotel in Kigali and Virunga Lodge) were perfect and wonderful and we had smooth and fascinating treks to the Mountain Gorillas and the Golden Monkeys. I would love to do it all over again and I would not hesitate to use Makario Safaris again.
