Client Testimonials

It was incredible. The gorillas are extraordinary and it’s a privilege to see them in the wild. Thank you so much for your help with the arrangements.”

Steve & Lorraine (Kelly) – UK


In short, we had an absolutely amazing time! Everything was wonderful and I think I can speak for both of us when I say that, beyond how amazing an experience seeing the gorillas was, we fell in love with Rwanda in general! And of course, Giraffe Manor in Kenya was a very special place as well – thanks for suggesting that!  All the drivers were fantastic especially Didier who took great care of us.  Thank you!

The trip was magical; everything I wanted.  I always dreamed it would be the highlight of my life and would never be able to top it and it seems this is the case. Thank you for making it possible and for assisting with the sedan arrangements to enable me to trek.

I just want to thank you again for all of your help planning our students gorilla trekking experience. All 20 of them have come back utterly amazed and changed from the experience. It’s been such a pleasure working with you and I hope to do so again in the future. All the best.

I have to tell you, we are still so blown away by our experience in Rwanda. Everything was amazing and the memory of sunrise breakfast at Villa Gorilla is vivid! We went to the Pablo gorilla group…words cannot express how amazing it was!!!!

Hi Donna;  quick note to say I had a fantastic time!  Everything went as planned and booked.  The lodge was amazing and couldn’t have faulted them at all for their service. Great place and I was very well looked after especially as I was their only guest! The trek was just fab indescribable really as you know from when you’ve done it!  Thank you for the booking assistance!

The gorillas were great – porters were awesome – guide was really awesome :-).  For a budget hotel, the service at Villa Gorilla was great – the staff attended to everything that we needed and handled all of our requests with grace – food was super good.  View was phenomenal. Great experience and would recommend it anytime!  Thanks for all of your help setting it up for us!

What a beautiful place Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is. They made us all feel as guests in a lovely home. The gorilla trek was enjoyed by family as well as my son’s Golden monkey trek & the guided tour of village. The whole experience there was a wonderful ending to a truly amazing trip. A dream come true for me & memories to last a lifetime for all of us. Thank you for your care & patience, Donna. I really appreciate your efforts on our behalf.

Fantastic experiences including two thrilling gorilla treks, chimpanzee trek, boat trip and three game drives. Lucky enough to see everything we wanted including leopard, lions and elephants. Stayed in two amazing lodges, Mahogany Springs and Mweya Safari Lodge which were set in stunning locations. Thanks so much, from the planning through to when we returned the service and friendliness has been exceptional. We would definitely book with you again and special thanks must go to Donna and John.

Diane & Neil – UK


It was a magical experience, thank you! The lodge gave me a surprise birthday party (which I understand you arranged for me)! They came out with drums, dancing and  a cake with sparklers. I didn’t even get what was happening until I saw my name on the cake!  I toured the Buhoma hospital, it was fascinating and touched my soul.

Roxana – North Carolina, USA


The trip was wonderful. I was less than a meter from a gorilla! And I was charged by a chimp. I saw the tree lions. I wish I would have booked a longer trip but I could not have known how great it would be. I loved my guide Ismael; what a  sweetheart. I’d recommend him as a guide.

Alexa –  North Carolina, USA


We got home Tuesday afternoon, tired, but exhilarated from a wonderful 23 day trip. Lot’s to talk about – Uganda trekking was awesome! Thank you for making it happen.

Shelly & Patti – Illinois, USA


Mahogany Springs Lodge was very nice.  The service and food was excellent and I would recommend very highly. Thank you so much for all your hard work, and the hand holding you did to make this trip so wonderful for my daughter and myself. Traveling in Africa was a bit daunting for me without my husband, but you most of my anxiety out of all the traveling to and fro that we did. Thank you, I will highly recommend you and your company to all my friends.
