My Feb 2010 trip

On this trip, I visited Rwanda between 7-Feb-2010 and 19-Feb-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


It was a great holiday.
Primate Safaris were really good at trouble shooting and were lovely people to meet. They gave us confidence from the start which is great when arriving tired in a new country.
Some difficulties in paying respect to the people who died in the genocide early on in the holiday which was important for me.
The Solice visit was great and worked well but I don't think Primate Safaris and Solice had spoken before the day. Sophie was very helpful and informative and Patrick again ensured everything went well. With hindsight I would have prefered this experience, and visited the genocide memorial at the start of the trip rather than the end.

Driver/guide within Rwanda
We both found Patrick a great guide and very personable. It was a pleasure to have access to his company and information. He was also great at sorting out any issues and being flexible.
