Rwanda and Serengeti experience

On this trip, I visited Rwanda & Tanzania between 2-Aug-2016 and 11-Aug-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Every time I think about our Gorilla trek I get goosebumps. It was simply sensational. I am so glad we decided to go on two consecutive days and were able to see two gorilla families.

Olakira camp was fantastic - a great choice for anyone interested in witnessing the amazing wildebeest migration. The service, facilities, food and guiding was nothing short of exceptional.

I could not recommend the Ngorongora crater or Manyara based on our experience. It really fell short after the Serengeti although a better guide would no doubt have contributed to a richer experience.
