IMG 8224Another amazing experience in Africa – our favorite destination!  We spent time in Rwanda and Tanzania. Prior to gorilla tracking we spent a couple nights in Kilgali, a fun city with lots of activity. A city tour and a visit to the Genocide Memorial is a must do. We stayed at The Retreat in Kilgali https://heavenrwanda.com/ and it was lovely.  Truly a boutique property located in the heart of the city. Service was outstanding, rooms amazing and F&B quite good. King Charles and Camilla stayed here in June!  Excellent open air fitness center open 24/7.

We then took the beautiful three hour drive to go Gorilla trekking. We stayed at The Singita Kwitonda Lodge https://www.luxurysafarilodges.com/lodges/singita-kwitonda-lodge-rwanda itwas ‘over the top’ and exceeded our expectations.  We stayed in their two bedroom suite. The lodge was built in 2019 – very close to Volcanos National park for Gorilla Trekking.  Gorilla permits are now $1,500pp – up from $500pp in 2007.

We flew from Kilgali to Sasakwa, the airport for Grumeti Reserves on Costal Airlines, a scenic three hour flight. We stayed at the Singita Faru Faru Lodge https://singita.com/lodge/singita-faru-faru-lodge  - it was also ‘over the top’ in all aspects.  We had been to Singita Grumeti  reserves https://singita.com/region/grumeti/ before and stayed at Sasakwa and Sabora Tented Camp – each lodge has its own feel -  Faru Faru is next to the Grumeti River and has its own watering hole – game viewing from the lodge was excellent.  We had site visits at Sasakwa and Sabora - important to note – the Sabora Tented Camp has been totally redone – no longer an Ernest Hemingway  feel – more contemporary.  Our favorite was Sabora but with the change, it’s now Faru Faru.


  • Would suggest just one night in Kilgali – do the city tour the next day, visit the Genocide memorial then drive directly to Kwitonda (3 hour drive or a 30-minute helicopter flight).
  • Stay at Kwitonda for at least 3 nights – so much to do there and the rooms are amazing.
  • We knew Kwitonda would provide gators, walking stick and backpack but was unaware they also provided boots. With luggage limited to just 33 pounds, less is better when packing.
  • Our guides were awesome – Bridge in Kilgali and Peterlis at Faru Faru where extremely knowledgeable and fun! Bridge was able to secure a bouquet of 60 roses (for our 30th anniversary) in Rwanda to give to us immediately after Gorilla trekking - in the rain forest.
  • DL is far superior to KML in all aspects, but KML is the only option from AMS to KGL and JRO to AMS.
  • Security in AMS is still a problem – we were lucky: it only took us 1.5 hours to get through. They have 20 state of the art bays but short staffed so only 3 were open. Make sure you have at least a three hour layover in AMS.
  • Kwitonda and Faru Faru both had an evening of local entertainment which was quite fun. Kwitonda also had fun birthday gifts for John and of course a birthday cake.

This was certainly a trip of a lifetime!
