Hi Everyone

Just wanted to say that this is a brilliant trip.
Steve, Ali, this was also my wife's and my first trip of this kind, I'm sure you will have a time that will stay with you forever.
Rwanda is a most beautiful country with its people wonderfully friendly, look out for the "car wash" in Kigali.
We got a chance to visit an orphanage near Kigali, along with the genoside museum, both were unforgetable and I challenge anyone not to shed a tear.
We trekked the largest family group of gorillas, I still love recalling my story of this.
Taking pictures in an enclosed area when the group of gorillas get bored, stand and walk towards us and the only exit. We all back up as far as we can, they are leaving. 6 foot away now, now 4, now 2, now the touch of gorilla hair against my arm, I turn to watch and see the last gorilla give a friendly tap on the shoulder of the last person in our group - wow...............

Take some tennis balls and cheep sun glasses. Two Aussie girls did on our trip and both were received well with the children.

There are many other highlights, I could talk forever.

You guys have picked a fantastic trip, enjoy.

Kind regards
