After travelling for 24 hours to Rwanda, we were so happy and relieved to see two people waiting just outside customs with a sign for us! We were immediately led to our immaculate jeep and were briefed on the start of our journey as we drove to Kigali Serena hotel.
Samuel was our driver guide and he went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful. He educated us on Rwandan culture and life, showed us the magnificent countryside, told us stories of what life is like there, and had our back the entire time. He saved us from a few of the typical "tourist" mistakes by making sure we weren't overcharged. He dropped us off each morning for the gorilla hike and was there waiting as soon as we were done. He even pushed us to take a particular hike that was difficult but provided an experience that was the highlight of the entire vacation.
The driver guide is a super important part of any safari - one that can make or break the experience. Samuel and Harmony Safaris Expeditions far exceeded our expectations and we are grateful to our travel agent, Planet Jaguar Tours, for recommending we use them.
Hello to the whole team Harmony Safari
Excellent trip! A big thank you to Francois "Matano" for the organization of our itinerary. We wanted to thank you, I and all my family, once again for this magnificent stay that you made us live. You knew how to reassure us and put us in the right frame of mind before coming, which was not easy given the situation in this beautiful country. And then Thiery our guide made us discover a good part of the beauty of RWANDA. He was very attentive and at no time did we feel in danger!
Again thank you and have a next time (we will be back in 1 or 2 years).
Bonjour a toute l'équipe Harmony Safari
Superbe voyage! Un gros merci à Francois Matano pour l'organisation de notre itinéraire.On voulait vous remercier, moi même et toute ma famille, encore une fois pour ce magnifique séjour que vous nous avez fait vivre. Vous avez su nous rassurer et nous mettre dans le bon état d'esprit avant de venir, ce qui n'était pas facile, étant donné la situation dans ce magnifique pays. Et ensuite Thiery notre guide nous a fait découvrir une bonne partie de la beauté du RWANDA. Il a été à nos petits soins et à auncun moment nous nous sommes sentis en danger !
Encore merci et a une prochaine fois (nous pensons revenir dans 1 ou 2 ans).
We returned from our first holiday to Kenya and Rwanda and the highlight of our 11-day trip was undoubtedly the safari. I searched the Internet for information and settled on Harmony Safari Expeditions Ltd. Great decision!! Francis was so helpful and answered all queries promptly.Our driver was Michel in Kenya and he was absolutely amazing. We marveled at his ability to spot game and drive at the same time. He was also knowledgeable and very good company. Our first night was at Galdessa which was beautiful. The tents were lovely and the lounge/dining areas were both comfortable and relaxing. We did have to spend some time with our guide dodging a one tusked elephant who took an instant dislike to my wife and tried to stalk her round the tents but this just added to the excitement. We went for a walk by the river with a guide, a tracker and an armed askari. We saw lots of wildlife including huge crocodiles and hippos.
Everyone there was helpful, polite and very friendly. We loved it. I didn't think it could get any better but then we went to Finch Hattons. This was luxury in true "Out of Africa" style. The tents were fabulous and very comfortable. the swimming pool was a welcome place to take a cooling dip after a hot and dusty game drive. The dining room was an experience in itself. Fantastic food. The staff again was so good to us. They were polite, helpful and really took care to make sure that our stay was truly memorable. I loved the fact that our tent was on stilts so that the hippos and crocodiles couldn't climb the steps (although they were so close I could have reached out and touched them if I wanted) and that it had a hairdryer!
Thank you to everyone at Harmony Safari Expeditions, Galdessa and Finch Hattons. I booked this safari this year on February and traveled in late July this year.
The Rwanda Air flight from Nairobi /Kigali was amazing. No loss of baggage and it was on time.On arrival at KGL Airport,we sported our Driver Sam on exit. He quickly took us for Kigali City tour visited Kigali Genocide Memorial before transferring us to Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge in Musanze the home of Mountain Gorillas.Very classic lodge with nice staffs and services. We did one Gorilla Trekking at Volcano National Park the following day and it was interesting to be close with the Gorillas although my wife was little scared and nervous with the SILVERBACK but she loved the whole thing final.Thank you the Ranger!
We are planning another trip for Rwanda and Congo early next year. We loved Rwanda--the country is very clean with good scenery.
Thank you Harmony Safari Expeditions for organizing our first trip to Africa. We highly recommend for your professionalism. We are looking forward to our next trip next year.

Hi Harmony Safari Expeditions Ltd
Just a quick report back before I go to work. Im still on East Africa time. Wide awake at 5AM.
Hemmingways is really brilliant. Worth mentioning the cocktail bar on the first floor for pre and after dinner drinks. They even have a wine cellar with a chefs table inside where you can see your food prepared on a TV screen. The spa was not very helpful. Could not book any treatments although we could later see them from our table on patio sitting around doing nothing for the last hour and half before they closed!!
The drive to El Pajeto is 6 hours rather than 3! Specially in the morning traffic in Nairobi.
Its worth warning people flying via JKIA/NBO airport (Nairobi) that they have to buy a $20 transit visa just to be able to collect their luggage and then transfer to a different terminal for onward flight. They would not transfer our luggage and we had to pick it ourselves. We were send backwards and forwards without anybody knowing what the rule is.
Everything else was spot-on time and at no time did we have to wait for any connection or border crossing and people were extremely helpful. We tipped the minimum according to your recommendation and everybody was very grateful. Maybe the two in Rwanda expected more, but on the other hand the did nothing more than sitting in the car for 3 hours.
I want to thank you again for the professional way you put our trip together and will definitely be in touch when we want to visit Serengeti and Masai Mara in a couple of years time.
