The place was simply breathtaking, staff were welcoming, food was full of flavours and most of all the infinity pool that made it more worth the long drive. love it

Went to see the mountain gorillas but actually went in via Uganda as the visa was much cheaper than on the Rwanda side. Hard work to trek into the forest but certainly worth it to be up close and personal with these beautiful creatures!

We did the chimp trekking and colobus trekking. The rating is based on the beauty of the forest, the abundance of monkey and chimp sightings, and the trails. Some of the trails had steps and benches. Daniel happened to be our guide on both occasions...More

This place is worth making time to visit. The park has remarkable primary rainforest with a fascinating fauna. Other reviews online have complained that the activities are very managed (hikes start 2 times per day and you need a guide). We didn't find this onerous...More
