Rwanda: At least once in every initial consultation with a new client, I am moved to say the words, “Trust me here”, meaning trust me on this point. When it comes to Rwanda, I ask you to please trust me here.

As awful as the genocide was, it is over and the country has moved on. Tourists are safe and the people are eager for the future. In my opinion, Rwanda is not a stand-alone destination. But, it is a perfect 3-day extension from Kenya or Tanzania, to see the Mountain Gorillas -- Africa’s lumbering sweeties of the forest.
