I had an amazing time with Geckos. The tour leader Peter, was informative and fun. The driver and chef was accommodating and hilarious! The Geckos team really made us feel like family. It really was the trip of a lifetime. The gorillas, white water rafting, game drives, shopping and sleeping to the sound of lions are all just a few of the highlights.

The highlight of our trip was most definitely the mountain gorillas in Rwanda, but we also enjoyed all the animals we saw in the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and our boat trip on the Kazinga Channel. We felt very safe on some fairly rough roads with our driver, and the food on the tour was absolutely fantastic.

Travel to Rwanda to see a football-mad country kicking goals in the wake of a seriously tragic past. In what has to be one of the most epic turnarounds in modern times, Rwanda is now home to one of the fastest growing economies in Africa.
Join a Geckos tour of Rwanda to travel through remote, rural countryside, get sweaty while trekking through dense jungle, hang with a bevy of rare mountain gorillas, and kick back with a cool beer in Kigali.
Rwanda is in the process of transforming itself with tourism, agribusiness, social enterprise and backyard banana beer brewing leading the way.
While Rwanda may not have the huge game reserves, wineries, and beaches of other African countries, Rwanda has heart (and an ample supply of banana beer).
Fine by us.
