My Nov 2012 trip

On this trip, I visited Rwanda between 9-Nov-2012 and 21-Nov-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Patrick was a great personable driver who added to the overall holiday with his knowledge of the country and willingness to engage in conversation.

Rwanda is a great country who have put the past behind them and are looking forward to a bright future (hopefully). The country is the cleanness I visited in Africa, the people are friendly and embrace all visitors. Children are keen to engage in conversation to practise their English. Food was surprisingly of very good quality. An up and coming country on the world stage and one I would recommend to visit.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

A suggestion would be to offer a boat transfer on the lake for one leg of the journey rather than driving.

If I was to do it again, I would suggest doing the trip the other way round i.e. starting at the Forest and finishing with the gorillas as a highlight. I know that most trips are subject to getting the gorilla pass so this may not always be possible.

Explore Namibia

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 8-Nov-2007 and 17-Nov-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Very well managed trip in Namibia, a credit to Wilderness Safaris - who did an excellent job.

Sabina offered a good level of service combined with good advice/alternatives where needed.

Feedback response

To clarify this travellers' comments a little, two camps visited by this traveller are owned by Wilderness Safaris - Kulala Desert Lodge and Ongava Lodge - whilst the other three places are independently-owned.
