Trip Report Rwanda January 2009 trip report (using R&N Xplorer)

Jump to last reply

Hello All,

This is my first post on this forum. I have lurked here for a year soaking up information on Africa in order to plan our 2 week trip to Rwanda and Tanzania. A BIG thank you to all! So, I figured I needed to come back and post a report to benefit others who may be planning similar trips.

We were in Rwanda from 19 - 23 January and in Tanzania from 23 January to 1 February.

Our trip report and photos can be found on smugmug at

There are 4 albums for each of our 4 days in Rwanda. Hope you enjoy!

As for R&N Xplorer, they worked out very well for us. Nyagah (the owner) was usually very responsive. There was a period after we had confirmed our booking when he was not as responsive, but after I politely let him know that and insisting on better communication, he got back to replying within 1 - 3 business days. I usually plan all our trips independently and am not used to handing over control to someone else. So, I made sure that Nyagah faxed us copies of the gorilla permits. Nyagah also booked our Rwanda AIr JRO to KGL flight tickets and sent us the e-tickets.

Mercator Assistance is R&N Xplorer's partner and ground operator in Rwanda. Once we reached Kigali, everything was smooth and there were no glitches. Abdul, our driver, was fantastic. We would definitely recommend R&N.

We are still working on our Tanzania pictures and commentary. It will take us another 2 weeks at least to get them done.

If there are any questions, I will try my best to respond as soon as possible.

- Seema
