Trip to mountain gorillas

Rwanda between 9 Jan 2008 and 13 Jan 2008

Trip rating: Excellent
"We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Primate Safaris, the local agents, were faultless. Our guide/driver Arthur was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and good company, and his English was excellent.

The gorilla tracking was unforgettable, and worth every penny. The official guides were very good. We also enjoyed the golden monkey trip, and would recommend this itinerary (monkeys first, then gorillas) as it allows you to acclimatise a bit.

We spent two nights in Nairobi before going to Rwanda, which also helped to get used to the altitude."

"Mountain Gorillas Nest review"

3 nights Arrived 9 Jan 2008
"The hotel was much more comfortable than we had expected. The staff were friendly, we had hot water for showers throughout the day. The only problems were with the restaurant. The breakfasts were excellent but all other meals were of rather poor quality. We're not complaining - it's a poor country were tourism is in its infancy - but it's worth pointing out to prospective visitors.

A particular problem for us was that they simply had no concept of vegetarianism. When beef was served and Kerstin said she didn't eat meat, she was offered pork instead! She had requested fish or vegetarian with the booking, and several times during our stay, but it just didn't register.

Again, this is not a complaint, for reasons already stated, but strict vegetarians should be aware."
