The most incredible, amazing holiday

On this trip, I visited Rwanda & Tanzania between 3-Dec-2016 and 16-Dec-2016 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


We had the most incredible, amazing holiday. It was truly a holiday of a lifetime.

The gorillas were unforgettable in Rwanda and I would definitely advise others who are thinking of going to do a trip to the golden monkeys first and two trips to the gorillas, as the second trip was even better than the first. We got so close to the gorillas we could have touched them (we didn't!). A silverback actually brushed past my husband - we all held our breath!

The safari in Tanzania was also incredible, but made even more special by our driver Faso who was so knowledgeable about all the animals and birds.

The holiday was not cheap, but it was worth every penny that we paid and would not hesitate to recommend Expert Africa. In fact, we are already of thinking about doing another safari, once we have saved up a bit!!

I want to thank Expert Africa for organising our trip.

We have lots of videos (especially of the gorillas) and photos if you would like us to send you some.
