Reviews for Rwanda primates & Mafia Island holiday


review 28 Oct 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Spending time with the mountain gorillas in Bwindi national park. Truly a once in a lifetime experience being up close and personal with a remarkable primate.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Bring fresh $50 bills for visas on demand. Uganda gave us a hard time about dollars older than 2013

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

All the staff at the lodges and all guides were locals supporting the local economy. Most of the staff was using the money to support their extended families. Lodges by and large were trying to be environmentally friendly with solar electricity and hot water heaters

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Amazing Lodges were outstanding. Guides and staff were excellent and welcoming. Countries depend upon tourism to bolster their economies.
