Patrick, of Primate Safaris gave us excellent service. We were met at the airport, taken to a suitable hotel, given a city tour (including the Genocide Museum a sobering yet important visit) and then transported to the Volcanoes National Park for our Gorilla Trek. The service was efficient and professional. All transfers were on time and the guide's depth of... More

My family of five landed in Kigali, where we were introduced to our guide, Sura, who accompanied us the the next five days. There is so much I can say about this man, but I won't. All you need to know, is ask for Sura if you choose to book through this company. He was kind, patient, knowledgable, made any... More

We went on a 6 Day tour and it was amazing!! Our driver was great, nothing was too much to ask! And the gorilla trekking was incredible. Best of all it was supporting a great anti-poaching and conservation project.
