Maruska saved our bacon
Rwanda between 30 Jun 2017 and 3 Jul 2017
Maruska worked through all the possible options with us. We were looking at more high end places like Virunga Lodge to make it special for our traveling companion but finding matches between hotel availability and possible new flight dates was difficult and proving to be wildly expensive. Maruska then suggested that she check with Mountain Gorilla Lodge to see if they had availability for the dates that fit our original flights. I hadn't been impressed with the descriptions I had read of Mountain Gorilla Lodge (they should work on that), but Maruska assured us that the accommodations, though simple, were quite clean and comfortable. This worked out.
We kept our original flights, stayed at Mountain Gorilla Lodge (which was way nicer than expected!) and saved tons of money on our trip. So thank you Maruska for your patience and your smart thinking!
Expert Africa arranged a private guide and vehicle for these travellers, and they commented:
Jeremiah was a wonderful guide. He was a very safe driver and very accommodating to our requests. He was charming and knowledgeable, a pleasure to spend time with. We hope to bring other friends next year so hope we can get him as our driver again."
