Francis from ORTPN starts his own tour company

Jump to last reply

Hello gorilla-trekking fans --

Some of you who have gone to Volcanoes National Park have probably met Francis Karenzi, who has been one of the ORPTN rangers in the Park for about 7 years. Here is a picture of the Francis I am talking about:

Anyway, we met Francis when he guided us to the Amahoro Group earlier this year. He told me at the time that he was working on starting his own tour company, and now he has it off the ground and running. His web site is at http://www.goldenlandsafaris.com.

So, for those of you looking for an alternative tour operator for Rwanda, you may want to consider Francis. I haven't done a tour with him, but I really did enjoy talking to him (at length) when we were in Rwanda earlier this year. He seemed like a very nice person and very knowledgeable, and I can say for sure that he did his utmost to make sure we had a great experience with the Amahoro Group.

Chris
