Excellent experience all due to the guide/driver -Pierre (Peter)

Very well organized, friendly staff inside the park and great vehicle (Extended Landcruiser). The guide did his outmost to make sure that we spotted as many animals as possible. We actually saw all the major animals in the park with the exception of Rhinos, Leopards and Hyenas (as we were there during daytime).

Pierre made sure to take care of us in every way possible, this combined with a great sense of humor made the trip unforgettable. I would highly recommend using this company (demand Pierre as guide) and you will not regret it.

Great Personal Experience

Makairo Safaris have good prices. I set up a tailored Safari and it went great. They send good feedback about different options.

The gorillas, my ultimate dream experience

Thank you so much to Mwaka who organised my 5 day trip to Rwanda and Jean-Marie who was my excellent guide for the duration of the trip. The organisation of the trip was excellent and Mwaka was very helpful when my return flight was unexpectedly cancelled. A good guide makes a huge difference and Jean-Marie was superb. The last two nights accommodation at Virunga Lodge was wonderful. Seeing the gorillas and golden monkeys was an incredible experience and really worth it!

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.
