RWANDA SAFARIS & TOURS

TOUR RWANDA ON SAFARI, THE LAND OF 1,000 HILLS

A destination literally at the heart or center of the African continent, Rwanda has much to behold. A Rwanda safari offers her visitors some unique wildlife and a nature sighting experience to remember for a lifetime. Among the unique things you will get to do here is seeing the rare golden monkeys and yes, encountering the breath-taking mountain gorillas that find their home in bamboo forests of the Volcanoes NP.

Dubbed “the land of a thousand hills”, Rwanda’s scenic setting is mind-blowing. A haven for any scenery lover! If interested, there are also some volcanoes to explore while on a Rwanda tour, including crossing border into the famous Nyiragongo craters.

It’s really not just about the safari and savannah here, but the warmth of people you meet as well. Rwandese people are endlessly kind and caring, and the culture is captivating, whether that’s delivered through traditional dance (itore), unique architecture or works of art.

Незабываемое сафари Выбрали один из самых бюджетных туров в Уганду. У компании было много положительных отзывов, поэтому практически не сомневались в своём выборе. В целом от путешествия остались самые лучшие впечатления, все поставленные цели и задачи мы выполнили, сделали треккинг горилл, шимпанзе и золотых обезьян. Иногда казалось, что программа тура немного затянута, проявлялось это в большом количестве свободного времени. Отдельное спасибо хочется сказать нашему лучшему гиду Патрику. За время тура мы очень подружились, все время вместе мы провели в очень приятной дружеской атмосфере. Будем надеяться однажды встретиться еще! Подытожу свой отзыв тем, что готов рекомендовать данного тур оператора, так же максимально рекомендую гида Патрика. Всем добра!

6 day tour We loved our tour with Home to Africa. The experience was made easy with lots of information and a very knowledgeable and capable driver. The 5 different places we stayed were all very welcoming and accommodating. We LOVED our time in Bwindi and the gorilla trekking was definitely a highlight. Considering everything we got to see and do I feel the price was very reasonable. Our it driver Patrick was excellent.

Enjoy Uganda without a care in the world! From our initial contact to ask for information till our airport drop off, our guide as well as everyone we spoke to at HTA were very helpful and made this trip easy for us. Our guide Amos is a young man that everybody seems to know in Uganda ;)) Very polite and extremely knowledgeable, and a very able driver too. The tour was a 5 day gorilla trekking, and HTA were more than eager to accommodate our picked destinations and activities at a very competitive price. Uganda itself is among the most beautiful countries we have been in Africa, with abundance of wildlife and the kindest people. Great food too!! Seeing gorillas in their natural habitat with the least possible disturbance to them was definitely the highlight of our trip and surely among the most cherished experiences of my life!

Unforgettable experience Our Uganda experience was unforgettable! Derrick, our guide, took great care of us and took us to the most beautiful places through half of whole country. The accomodations were always beautiful and we were treated exceptionally. The safaris and trekking were amazing, the nature incredible. We saw so many things, we will not forget this trip. Derrick introduced himself to us as the best guide and he definitely lived up to that!

The most amazing trip I intailly contacted a couple of tour operators for a quote. Home to Africa were quick to respond with their standard 8 and 10 day trips. As the tours are all private they can be tailor made and Hedmond was just as quick with any requests and questions I had. I was a liittle anxious sending a large depoit to a company I'd never dealt with but they were amazing from start to finish and would not hesitate to use them again. I was met at the Airport by Vianney my guide/driver for the next 10 days. He was excellent. A safe driver with a brilliant eye for wildlife spotting and superb companion for the whole trip. At Bwindi when another group tried to kick me and another Home to africa group off the family we'd been allocated. Both guides stood their ground so we could see the Mukizi family. For that we were so grateful. The accommodation was brilliant. Staying inside Murchison falls NP meant we saw hyenas up close. A very memorable experience. The whole trip was outstanding I can't recommend Home to Africa enough if you are planning a trip to Uganda a beautiful country A trip of a lifetime!

It was all perfect organized with an impressive capability to adapt to changes, which appeared out of the blue. The guide and driver Vianney was perfect companion in this week.

Exceeded expectations and absolutely amazing. 11 Day Gorilla and Chimpanzee Trekking Safari We initially booked and paid a deposit for this trip when covid hit. This was concerning for us but Hedmond assured us everything would be ok and he promised our trip would go ahead when restrictions eased. He kept in constant contact and when we were able to we booked our trip again...2 1/2 years later we finally made it to Uganda. We were met at the airport by Karim and he greeted us with a big smile and straight away I knew we were going to be well looked after....we hit the jackpot of tour guides when we got Karim as our guide and now we refer to him as family. No request was too much...he ensured we were happy, comfortable, safe and always made sure we had the best seats on any tour we went on. He turned up to boat tours early to make sure we were on the left side of the boat so we could see everything and these are the little details that made him so special, he always went above and beyond. One of our requests was to visit some charities and Karim organised for us to visit a couple of much needed charities where we were greeted with open arms and beautiful song by the children...this meant so much to us and bought tears to our eyes. Every hotel and accommodation was amazing...most of the accommodation exceeded what we thought we would have. All accommodation was so welcoming and accomodating and made sure we enjoyed our stay. The views from some of the hotels were spectacular...shout out to Lake Bunyonyi Resort and Daphne who went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. The safari was amazing...although we were there for the Gorillas my favourite was the Chimpanzees. We saw every animal that was in the brochure and Karim was persistent with the leopards and we finally got to see them. Congratulations Home to Africa on a well organised trip and making our Safari one we will remember forever. ...we will cherish these memories. Thank you from Marisha and Adam from Brisbane Australia

Extraordinary Rwanda/Uganda Safari with Home to Africa Tours and Travel! We had an absolutely wonderful safari in Rwanda and Uganda this past July with Home to Africa Tours and Travel. Hedmond was a pleasure to work with up front setting up the safari and answering all of our questions. Hedmond and the rest of the team also went out of their way to accommodate a few custom lodging requests for enhanced birding opportunities, which worked out great. We were all really pleased with the rest of the lodging choices made by the tour company. The meals were delicious, varied, and nobody went hungry. Fred met us at the Kigali airport and helped us get our Covid tests, and then Emmanuel took good care of us for the rest of our time in Rwanda. We had a beautiful day with the golden monkeys in Volcanoes National Park and a brilliant birding/canoe trip on the Mukungwa River. Once we crossed the border into Uganda, we had the pleasure of spending the next 10 days with Benon, who guided us on an outstanding route from Mgahinga Gorilla National Park all the way up to Murchison Falls National Park and then on to Entebbe. We visited a number of parks in between and saw countless birds, mammals and reptiles. Uganda is magical and the biodiversity outstanding! From mountain gorillas and chimpanzees to birds, snakes and insects, our family was constantly in awe of the natural beauty. Given all the challenges facing Uganda, especially along the DRC border, we found everyone we met to be extremely friendly and generous. However, the icing on the cake was our guide Benon. His knowledge of the local wildlife (including birds) is outstanding, and his laugh is something I miss dearly. I can’t say enough about Benon. He helped us make a few itinerary changes on the fly that worked out brilliantly, and he seems to know everyone. I wouldn’t hesitate to go on another safari with Benon. Hopefully our paths cross again. I’m thankful for all the wonderful memories we created during our time in Rwanda and Uganda. Thanks to Home to Africa Tours and Travel for helping us fulfill a lifelong dream!
