Feedback From Clients

Pam and Mark Payne


We are back without scratches, or bites!!! I just wanted to let you know how much we loved our trip to Rwanda. It was clean, beautiful, safe, friendly, and breathtaking views. If you need a referral, or anyone wants to know what it is like I would be glad to talk to them. Thanks for putting up with me as always. We truly enjoyed our visit with Cristina and Carol as well. 850 plus miles on the car, wine, elephants, monkeyland, ocean, birds, and great company. If you ever make it to Michigan, you must look us up. I referred two friends of mine to you. Her name is Bunny. She wants to gorilla trek next year. She will be in touch I think. Best to you and your family for 2008!
