A trip of a lifetime
Before I begin this blog of our short but sweet trip to Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas, I wish to thank Natural World Safaris, and especially Linda, for their help in planning and organizing this trip. Although we had been to other African countries and our goal is usually to organize our trip with local operators, we did not know anyone who had travelled to Rwanda nor did we have any references as to local operations.
We opted for NWS for their reputation for working with local companies. What we didn't expect was the wonderful personal attention we received. Linda first sent us very complete information so we could decide what aspects of the country we wanted to see, and what treks we wanted to undertake. She also spent time on the phone answering my questions, and providing information about my doubts; the fact that she had actually been there helped us tailor-make the trip for our interests.
We have worked with many travel agencies, but none as truly personalized as NWS.
