Akagera park safari

Our safari day trip with Jean Marie from Golden Rwanda tours was a fantastic experience and a memory for life! Great car and the best guide I have had on any trip. He did everything to make our day fantastic. Saw a lot of animals and a wonderful nature!

Responsible & Quick

The guys in this travel agency is quite impressive, comparing to other services I have experienced in Africa. What impressed me most is the immediate refund because of wrong information they gave me beforehand about minimal service charges at Mt. Nyiragongo. In addition, they have fixed or tried something to compensate whenever I have informed them inconvenient experiences with the hotels they have booked for me. Considering usual uncertainty here, it is quite impressive to see that they take care of customers with their bests. I bet you wouldn't regret to use their services.

Genuine, personalised, great customer service with competitive pricing

I worked with Frank from golden rwanda
He is a kind, genuine individual who is willing to help you plan your trip, he answered all my questions / concerns. He is responsive to email except when he is away on hiking trips somewhere remote. We did 2nights Gorilla trek in rwanda, he was our guide for the whole trip. He was the only guide during our entire africa trip, whom we invited to hv some meals with us.
He is sincere and doesnt talk too much (not annoying like most tour guides are).
He gave us good pricing too! I booked with him directly.

They made my dream vacation come true

It has taken me longer than anticipated to write this review because I have been so busy going through tons of pictures and videos from this wonderful vacation. This trip wouldn't have been made possible if it weren't for the amazing Golden Rwanda tours staff. More specifically I would like to thank Frank who over the course of a year and a half assisted me in planning this dream vacation and promptly responded to all of the emails I sent him. Frank was always prompt in alerting me if arrangements were made and gave helpful advice regarding activities to do to maximize our trip. Due to unfortunate circumstances Frank was unable to accompany me and my wife on our trip that we had planned together for the past year and half. Frank graciously took me and my wife out to dinner upon our arrival to Rwanda, explained what was happening, noted nothing would change regarding our itinerary, and reported that 'Michael' would be with us for the entire trip. I was appreciative that Michael would be with us, but slightly nervous as I had planned this entire trip and had all my communications with Frank. My worries were quickly put at ease and I can say that Michael became like family with my wife and I. Michael was incredibly knowledgeable, a great driver, and just ultimately a great tour guide. He accompanied us for a week in Rwanda and a week in Kenya, making sure we were comfortable every step of the way. I would most certainly go through Golden Rwanda again and would recommend this company to anyone. Two short stories before I end this review: on our first gorilla trek my pants were falling down (you think I would be more prepared) and Michael gave me his belt for the trek to make sure I wasn't having to hold them up the entire time. On our second gorilla trek it became incredibly cold outside (you think I would have learned my lesson from the first day) so again Michael gave me his sweatshirt to wear on our hike up the hill. So I can say not only is Golden Rwanda the real deal, they will literally give you the shirt off their back. I can't recommend them enough and could go on and on with good things to say about them. If you are thinking about going through Golden Rwanda, do it! It is the best decision you could make.

Cannot beat!

I used Golden Rwanda for a weekend trip to Nyungwe National Park and had a wonderful experience with them. Frank drove us and took us to breakfast at Lake Kivu on the way! He hiked with us and helped us set up all of our arrangements once we got to the camping site. He not only was a great guide and driver but he kept us company and was incredibly kind. The quality experience we had is shocking compared to the low price of the trip. We will definitely go to Golden Rwanda for future trips and highly recommend it.

My first safari experience

I went on this trip alone after a week of workshop in Rwanda. I was very impressed with the service. Frank was very nice and comfortable to be with. I was picked up at the hotel, driven to the park then had a little breakfast before hitting the road to see the animals. The vehicle was nice and the guide who was with us at the National Park was super fun and knowledgeable! We stopped for lunch at a spot next to the lake with more than 10 hippos in sight. Overall, I had a very good time for my first safari trip. The service by Golden Rwanda Safaris, particularly with Frank, exceeded my expectation in almost every way. I would recommend this to everyone looking for a short safari trip in Rwanda.

A hartwaming experience by the beauty of nature and kindness of the guides!

I went on a two day safari to the Akagera national park with Frank as my guide. Before we met because he wanted to inform me how it goes, to ask If I wanted to see a particular animal,.. He really tries his very best to make your trip as good as possible! I saw a lot of wild animals except no lions. But nature has it's on way and I was very happy with what I 've seen. The variety in the landscape is so beautiful. I got a lot of explenation about the park, the wildlife, legends,.. I recommend Frank because he does his job with a big hart for nature and also for the people he guides!

Game Drive Akagera National Park

I went to Rwanda on a work trip and I decided to take a tour at last minute, having contacted several tour companies, Golden Rwanda replied very fast and even went to my hotel to arrange the trip since I didn't have the time to go to the office, thank you for that Frank! You can talk to Frank and he will customize the tour for your needs and budget.

On the way to the tour Frank offered a very good overview of Rwanda's history as well as the briefing of what to expect in the park. Once there, we were joined by the park's guide Anaclet, he was very informative and knew a lot of the park and species there. I recommend going with a guide since they have a good idea of were the animals are and plan the best route for the time you have.

I saw more animals that what I was expecting to see. giraffes, lots of antelopes, elephants, buffaloes, birds, eagles, hypos and crocodiles. Overall it was a very worthwhile experience and my companions were great, I definitively recommend Golden Rwanda for any tour in Rwanda. The car was also nice and very clean.

Hope to see you again for another adventure in Rwanda my friend!
