This travel agent made our trip planning process fun and easy. We were interested in Gorilla trekking in Uganda and Rwanda. He has very significant expertise in Africa, and after listening to our ideas, he had many outstanding suggestions. We were traveling a long way, and wanted to make the most of our 2 weeks. The trip was amazing and everything went according to our plans. The accommodations were excellent, our local guide was fantastic, and the Gorillas were unbelievable. Our agent and his team provided every level of detail we needed from packing ideas, to visas and vaccinations, before the trip. From our first call, I felt confident in his ability to help us pull off the perfect adventure.
We enjoyed the people we met throughout our journey, and appreciated some of the more unique accommodations. The Ishasha Wilderness Camp and Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge, both in Uganda, were completely different from each other, both were beautiful with excellent personal service. The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was stunning and both the Gorilla trekking and Gorilla habituation experiences were amazing. In Rwanda, we stayed at the Sabyinyo Silverback lodge, another wonderful location, and trekked Gorillas in the Volcanoes National Park... We left all 3 camps and treks, with a true appreciation for the Gorillas and the people working to protect them. We ended our trip in Kigali, Rwanda with a tour of the city and time spent at the Genocide Memorial and Museum. Absolutely heartbreaking and should not be missed.
We'd probably start the journey at the Ishasha Wilderness camp in the Queen Elizabeth National Park.
