I took a trip with Gorilla Expeditions Ltd to see the mountain gorillas in 2013 and decided to organize my trip with Steve, the travel consultant of Gorilla Expeditions, specialists in gorilla tours and wildlife safaris in Rwanda and Uganda. After spending 14 days in Tanzania on the northern safari circuit it was so refreshing to see the green Rwanda country side. Tom was our driver/guide and he was superb! We kept him fairly busy driving us around and really wanted to get to see as much of the country as we could in the few short days we were there.
Tom seemed to relish the idea of showing us as much of his country as we could fit in to 8 days Rwanda Gorilla and Cultural expedition. We came by RwandAir a day before to our amazing Rwanda trip one day earlier; Gorilla expedition understood and took care of the change very quickly agent booking of double room at Kigali Serena Hotel at a very affordable price and it was all fun staying at this luxury hotel in the whole world!
Our house keeper was so hospitable and flexible to our needs, for so many times I have traveled to Africa Serena Hotels whole over Africa that is in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania, this hotel has the international first class hospitality facilities straight away from external out look of the amenities and when you enter into the rooms there really worse the money you pay, when you come to the décor and the services bit the continental and African cuisines Serena hotels are the home to be on your travel to Africa.
As we were still in our nice room, Steve the travel consultant of Gorilla Expedition Limited arrived at the lodge to orient us and when he started describing Rwanda and what really the country offers for instance the mountain gorillas and the culture of Rwanda, I started getting the exact pictures of what our, I and my wife safari will be.
At this very night gave us each an itinerary that was describing all places that we were entitled to visit and as our first experience was to meet the mountain gorillas in the mist, Volcanoes National Park I and my wife we spent the whole night imagining what the experience will be and we slept prepared with all what Steve advised us to come with in order to enjoy this gorilla trekking expedition in Africa.
Early in the morning we were met at the hotel by the guide/driver and we started hitting the road transferring to Ruhengeri where we had our second overnight before the next day we enjoyed the gorilla trekking experience and on this evening we visited the amazing Rwanda twin Lakes (Burera and Ruhondo). The driver-guide was a great source of information on history, current events, animals, where to go and pretty much more questions we had as we were eager to learn more about Rwanda and the Africa in general.
