This was my 3rd trip to Africa and my first with this safari tour operator and I must say they were excellent. They paid great attention to detail and are incredibly knowledgeable about each country and the camps. Our trip was fantastic and they even had some surprises for us along the way. Overall we had a trip of a lifetime and all aspects of our travel were attended to from airport pickups to accommodations.
Rwanda was such an incredible country with so much beauty that we did not expect. The gorillas were out of this world. You MUST follow instructions and wear the appropriate clothing and shoes if you are going on a medium or difficult hike. Vrunga Lodge was so special and worth the 45 minute ride up the hill. One thing to note is that all over Rwanda their English is not as good as other countries so a little patience goes a long way. The people are lovely. We packed for a purpose and had the privilege to bring the items we packed to the school and give them away. That was a real highlight.
Tanzania was fantastic. We were a bit unlucky with the animals in the reserve but it was still so special and we had the opportunity to go into the Serengeti for a day. I HIGHLY recommend the horse riding (if you are experienced enough) as that was an incredible experience. Our server at Faru Faru was so lovely and we really enjoyed having him serve each of our meals- it made it very special and created a lovely bond.
Mozambique was beautiful.
We paid to have our own safari truck one evening and had a very special anniversary celebration in Tanzania at sunset with local singers and dancers. It was incredibly romantic and special. The whole trip was amazing though- the places we stayed, the up-close interaction with the gorillas, the private island in Mozambique- just amazing.
We had some challenges with travel which required us to have some in-between nights that were not necessarily part of our trip that I wish we could have avoided but otherwise it was amazing.
