My wife and I approached Cederberg Travel in February, requesting a draft itinerary and recommendations for a visit to Rwanda. We received prompt, well-informed assistance, and a final itinerary which, in retrospect, turned out to be absolutely perfect. Our tour of the country was well-structured in terms of acclimatisation, pace and variety. On the second last day of our visit, we met up with another South African group who had opted for a different tour agency, and were exhausted by the disproportionate amount of time spent on the road rather than enjoying the delights of their respective destinations.
In Rwanda itself, Primate Safaris were superb – always punctual, extremely well-informed, and attentive to our individual needs. our driver for the week – Theo was the perfect mentor and we felt 100% safe in his hands at all times. That was also true for the guides and trackers we encountered at both Akagera and Volcanoes National Parks.
At all destinations, accommodation, food and support services were as good as we’d hoped for. Where minor problems arose, staff went out of their way to set things right.
Rwanda has a temperate climate, charming people and a developing tourism industry which clearly places great emphasis on the safety and comfort of it’s clients. Our experiences of the wildlife will stay with us for many years. If you wish to see the best of Africa – visit this fascinating, beautiful country.
