Overall Trip Experience Rating: 

Countries Visited: 

I speak on behalf of the Gregg's also in saying that the trip was more than we could have imagined. Everything went off without a hitch (no flight delays, no illnesses, no injuries, etc.)

Guide Experience Rating: Excellent
Guides: 

We all fell in love with Mkenda and I was close to tears when we had to say good-bye to him at the airstrip near Olakira to board our plane for Rwanda . I really felt like I was saying farewell to a family member, not knowing when I would see him again. He is such a fabulous guide and provided us with some amazing game viewing. He is so passionate about his job and connects so well with his clients. We just can't praise him enough! If he ever returns to the US , please let us know so we can fly him to Seattle for a visit.

Accommodation Experience Rating: 

Accomodation: 

We enjoyed all of our lodging experiences in Tanzania , but especially LOVED Oliver's Camp (and how lucky for us that Paul Oliver was visiting while we were there so we had the opportunity to chat with him over dinner). What an interesting person! Jackee and Justin are the greatest host and hostess, which only added to the perfect experience at Oliver's.

AAC Trip Planning and Organisation: 
Hello Kyle,

John and I returned yesterday (just suffering from a bit of jet lag!), and although we are happy to be back home, we are missing Africa! We had an AMAZING trip and we want to thank you and everyone else at Africa Adventure Company for helping us to plan the trip.

We all fell in love with Rwanda ! What a gorgeous country and how amazing to see how they continue to heal from the Genocide. We loved our guide, Theo, and miss him already also. Gorilla trekking was beyond words, and we were lucky to get Francois as one of our guides. It is amazing to watch him around the gorillas!

Needless to say, we would highly recommend Africa Adventure Co. to anyone planning travel to Africa. Thanks again for ALL your help!

Sincerely,
