“This turned out to be the trip of a lifetime so far. Every day brought fresh highlights and the holiday just got better as we progressed. Each of the 3 countries visited are so beautiful and the people so warm and friendly that you won't want to leave. Of course, the wildlife is a real highlight - especially spending time with the serene mountain gorillas.”

“Adventure of lifetime. It has been a wonderful experience of life with the roller coaster of emotions. Masai Mara is the best bit of the travel. I had the best time watching the wild animals live which was a dream come true. Whitewater rafting in Uganda was a breathtaking experience which I would never forget in my entire life. I can dub the experience as "thrilling and killing". Even though the scariest bit, it was the most enjoyable part. Thanks to my friend who pushed me to take part in this adrenalin pumping excitement. Lake Bunyoni is one of the most beautiful places in Uganda which was iconic. With its scenic beauty it was the most pleasant place to stay. Rwanda was a mixture of emotions. The holocaust museum with the devastating pictures of the people who got killed almost reduced me into tears. It was unacceptable to believe that this happened exactly twenty years from the time I was there. Happen to meet some victims who went through this hell and shared their emotional stories. Following the best part on the other hand when I happen to see our nearest cousins(Gorillas of Virunga mountains) so close, was awesome. Lastly, I found the trip most exciting as the my co travelers were excellent company combined with excellent chef Michael who was flawless and served us the best food at all times. I can summarize the whole experience as Lifetime Adventure.”
