Written on: December 01, 2014   |   I visited in October 2014 I chose Umubano tours based upon previous good reviews of the company. As I was travelling by myself, I was looking for someone reliable and who was flexible with regards to options. Umubano and their team were able to create an itinerary which met my needs. I wasn't interested in fancy accommodation and transport.

They were able to offer me a simple, no-fuss place to stay, trek and meals (although I did go out on my own every so often) at a competitive price.

Herbert and his team were easy to deal with, and were happy to take multiple payment options. Only half the trip cost was requested for deposit before arriving in Rwanda.

I would use Umubano tours again.

Went with Umubano tours for Gorilla trekking as much better value for money than other tours in Rwanda. Went for honeymoon in July 2014 with 2 gorilla treks. Herbert was extremely proficient in organising tour by e-mail. The trip was fantastic from the moment we met up with our guide John Bosco who had a great knowledge of the local area and gorillas in the Nationa... read more
