    Incredible trip, the organisation of it all was great, the guide was fantastic, really enjoyed it. Seeing the gorillas was a priceless moment. There are some VERY basic campsites but also some nice ones and lots of sitting on the truck (which has lockers, chargers and free drinking water) but its all worth it. Wildlife lovers will love it.

    Incredible trip in many ways. Very safe traveling with knowledgeable guides. David Mutiso, Issa Kegode (cook), and Kago David (driver) took great care of us. They're professional at what they do, and they're awesome guys. I definitely recommend this way of travel, and it was my first time taking a guided tour. Hotel in Nairobi isn't a great value, but everything else is.

    it was an amazing adventure, my first time to travel i left my hubby and kids for the first time, but was very apprehensive about it, but going to africa has been a life long dream. so i bit the bullet and went, and what an experience, totally amazing i was blessed with the crew Elisha, Cosmas, John, they were fantastic i couldnt have possibly got a more professional crew and my group was incredible we had such a laugh, we started in nairobi the hotel was just ok i didnt really trust some of the staff to be honest, thankfully nothing went missing on me but i heard and spoke to many people who had all their belongings stolen, so i def would not stay there again,we camped for most of the nights after that, camping and the tree houses in lake bunyonyi was my favorite accommodation, the camping was very comfortable i was as happy as can be in the middle of nature under such an impressive star lit sky, the accommodation in Musanze was also very good, i had to leave my group trip early as i had to return to my family and work commitments, i could have easily stayed on to return to nairobi with the rest of the group, sitting in the garden of Fatima on my final morning i was updating my journal and looking up at the beautiful virunga mountains the place i dreamed of for so many years, i tried to pinpoint the highlight of my trip, was it the african people? the crew? the group? the animals? or the landscape? i couldnt answer this question because it was all so amazing, every single fraction of it, i will definitely be travelling with intrepid again thank you changing the direction of my life my future now looks so much more exciting hopefully i will be travelling with you again sooner rather than later, i just need to convince my husband to come with me next time, thanks a million intrepid for the most incredible and affordable experience if i was to give any advice on tweeking the trip i would say stay longer in Rwanda what a country, its just astounding in every way, and there is so much to see and get in touch with the people are remarkable and a lesson to the world on recovery i cant say enough about this amazing place Kind Regards Alison C Mcgovern

    Mutiso, Emmauel & Charles were all very professional and could not do more for anyone that asked something from them. They worked well together as a team and were happy to jump in and do the \"chores\""when we only had a short time to explore somewhere."
