Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Nothing more to add, superb trip, superb company"
Tribes Service: "More than happy with tribes and yes would recommend and yes would use tribes again."

Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"


Lake Kivu Serena Hotel
Pleasant hotel and very western in appearance, not as rustic as we would have hoped for as you could be anywhere in Europe in this hotel. But having said that staff as always very pleasant and very willing to help.
Kigali Serena Hotel
City hotel lacked the charm of some of the places we stayed in but accomodation, food and staff were excellent. Just a city hotel though
Nyungwe Forest Lodge
unbelievable standard of accomodation. An amazing location and an amazing hotel, food was amazing, everything was awsome, didn't want to leave. Room backed onto the rain forest and the tea plantation. Idealic!
Mountain Gorilla View Lodge
Rustic, good accomodation, highly recommended, again staff are excellent and as the whole review is positive and some would say its not believable, a critism would be the staff try too hard to please!
