Most safaris in Rwanda are hosted by a private guide, who acts as a driver between regions and as a guide for general sight-seeing.
This guide is hugely important to the success of your safari, even if he does not guide you on the more specialist activities such as gorilla and chimp tracking, which is always guided by specialist local guides employed by the park authorities.
The general standard of guiding in Uganda is pretty good, especially considering that there is a significant practical element to their role as your ‘driver guide’ and they need to do much more than just guide you on the wildlife. If you are planning a tour of the country which requires travelling with a guide for a week or more, it is crucial that you are hosted by an experienced and passionate guide who makes your holiday a huge success.
