Trip to mountain gorillas

On this trip, I visited Rwanda between 9-Jan-2008 and 13-Jan-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


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.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
