"We visited a beautiful family of gorillas and got to see them very close up, which is indeed a once-in-a-lifetime!"

Kristien and Sébastien

Rwanda, Seychelles, Uganda

In February 2024, Kristien and Sébastien took a 15-day trip to Rwanda, Uganda and the Seychelles. They traveled to Kigali, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Northern Queen Elizabeth National Park and Kibale Forest National Park. They spent the last few days on the beach at Desroches Island in the Seychelles.

Good afternoon,

I am very happy to provide you with feedback, both to inform you of our wonderful experiences, as well as to understand each other even better in the future (because we are going to plan many more trips with you).

Our arrival in Rwanda, immediately a very friendly welcome and introduction to our guide 'Innocent'.

Heaven Boutique Hotel in Kigali, first overnight stay, neat, neat ... it is not our preference, but we understand it for one night.

Off to Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest NP in Uganda! Fantastic, the drive is intense, but worth it. Immediately, tears of happiness roll down my cheeks as we are received like kings. Both the location, and the people who help us along, are great. Very warm, very friendly!

Ideal for gorilla trekking. We visited a beautiful family of monkeys, after a two-hour trek. We actually got to visit them very closely, which is indeed a once-in-a-lifetime!

Visited Lake Mutanda, a beautiful picture, but very long drive for a one-hour boat ride, where we did not see very many birds, but the sight alone is worth it.

On to Mweya Safari Lodge at Northern Queen Elizabeth NP, the location top notch, the Lodge itself did not charm us ... but the boat ride was a highlight for us! So many animals, from so close up! Possibly there are no better accommodations around the canal, which then still justifies your recommendation, because the boat ride is not to be missed.

Kyaninga Lodge at Kibale Forest NP, beautiful room, good food, friendly people ... and what a location. They still do not manage to create the warm feeling of at Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge, but the activities such as the volcano hike, the chimpanzees, are unforgettable.

Off to Four Seasons Desroches Island in Seychelles, a dream ... the privacy, the friendliness, the location ... the end!

We are incredibly satisfied ... really incredibly, because it is a beautiful country, but when a friend asks us, where to go on safari, we answer Tanzania. The country is more catered to tourism and the afternoon lunches on the hood of the car, we missed.

The pace was very fast the first few days, so we are very happy to have spent a few more days on a beach vacation.

The flights we will not soon forget, eight in two weeks, so here we do want to pay more attention in the future.

We want to thank you so much for the wonderful vacation, even though I am critical in my mail...along with Tanzania, they are the most beautiful trips I have ever taken!

Kristien & Sébastien
