the guides did great job getting us to a family of gorillas. The hike was slippery in places but the guides held our hands and our gear and were so attentive to us. We were never fearful, even though we got so close to the family including the silverback. Very well organized, made us feel good about all the conservation efforts being done for the gorillas.

Just returned from Mount Kabuye Campsite owned by Beyond the Gorillas Experience for the third time, and every time it is such a pleasure to go there. I usually take my mountain-biking friends and stay overnight for a night or two and every time its a wonderful experience. I have stayed at many places in Rwanda but I have to say the team at Mt. Kabuye are the best in the industry. Starting from pick-up point by guides, and to the camp staff who take care of us to every detail, the food is also very delicious (every time is a different chef but the quality has been so consistent), and they make you a bonfire under a gazebo and you are surrounded by nature. The views from the summit are breath-taking especially in the mornings, and as a Mountain-biker, the whole place is the riding I've done in the country, especially if you like technical and flowy singletrack trails. Theres at least 3 days of awesome biking trails in the area. Theodore the owner also drops in some times to share his deep insights of his country and he is a wonderful man and a tourism professional who is committed to make a difference at the community level. He understands hospitality and there is no doubt his company will flourish in the future. I'll be back soon guys, and keep up the wonderful lovely experience you guys got going up there at Mt. Kabuye.

We went hiking mount Kabuye with beyond the gorillas experience and even though the weather was quite rainy and we didn’t have the best view from the top of the mountain, we absolutely enjoyed the overall experience, especially the interesting surroundings and our guides’ excellent company. Thanks a lot!

I'm a 60 yr old woman, I walk all the time at home but boy was I surprised when Mt. Kabuye turned into a trial & tribulation but thanks to Kwame(porter)& Theo (owner). I was able to complete the trail hike, yes I was the last member of our group to reach the lodge but it was so gratifying to be able to complete the hike. I got cheers.. All of the Beyond Gorillas staff were absolutely the most helpful; kind,attentive and provided a 1st Class Customer Experience and the chef prepared delicious meals using locally grown produce. I recommend Beyond Gorillas Experience.

camping on the top of Mount Kabuye is a beautiful experience. The camp is set in beautiful, quiet green forest with stunning views across Rwanda's peaks. The camp facilities are basic (simple tent provided, basic seated toilet, shower is a hot water bucket and a jug to pour it over yourself) but it's comfortable (mattresses in the tents, beer and wine available), and the catering team up there are out of this world - they delivered a full 3 course dining experience, with a great chef at the helm (they ably and happily catered for me as a vegetarian too), eating around warming fire pit. We spent 2 nights there as part of a mountain bike trip. Would definitely return just for the camping and location (binoculars for birding recommended) and the very helpful and super friendly staff.
