Starting with exploring Rwanda
You can call this our “primate” trip. I was finally able to live my lifelong dream of tracking gorillas, chimpanzees, several species of monkeys and lemurs all during a two-week long adventure to Rwanda and Madagascar.
Rwanda is an undiscovered jewel of Africa in my opinion. The people and wildlife are unforgettable.
I had travelled to Rwanda about two years ago on a spiritual pilgrimage and have been helping five families improve their lives since then by providing housing and income source and education for one child in each family. The trip back was so rewarding as my husband and I were once again able to connect with our families, see just how far they had come and make sure that they were on the right track. The recovery of the entire nation, after the horrible effects of the 1990 genocide is truly amazing and one of the things that strikes you right away when you are there.
Natural World Safaris was very flexible in ensuring that we met with each of our families, despite the often remote locations.
