"Susan and I had a great 7 day trip to Rwanda. Highly recommended. Included 2 gorilla treks which exceeded our expectations – gorillas approached within 1 metre and we always felt safe with the experienced guides – even had the unexpected bonus of seeing 2 elephants up close on the 1 trek. Food at the Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel was outstanding! People were friendly."
