Highly recommended I had a wonderful private bird-watching tour with Claudien. We had agreed on a tour in advance, which in my case went to the Bugesera Wetlands. Claudien had planned a total of three different spots. Wetlands, up-the-hill and a rice field. Claudien is an experienced birdwatcher, whom I can highly recommend. Not only does he know the bird species, he also has informative and entertaining stories about individual species. The fact that he takes photographs himself made it pleasant in my case, as he always thinks about spatial and lighting conditions. I was picked up in his 4x4 directly at the hotel and dropped off there again. My package included the guide and the car. A more or less planned lunch break was not included in the package, which turned out to be the case when I paid. This in no way detracted from my experience. So I can say that I would definitely book another tour with Claudien on my next trip to Rwanda.

Akagera and discovery of tea making Organization of the Akagera family photo safari at the top 👍 Very well advised by Claudien and his entire team. We had a fabulous time as a family at a very affordable price compared to the competition. We therefore trusted Claudien and his team a second time for a day on the lake and a visit to the tea making and the family tea picking experience. Alex the driver took great care during these two days which finalized our 1 month stay in this magnificent and magical country.

Birding at Nyandungu Urban Wetland Eco-tourism Park, Kigali, Rwanda I must admit that Rwanda is a jewel when it comes to wildlife. A short trip brought me to the land of thousand hills, Kigali- the capital city of Rwanda. And I took this opportunity to go birding which is my hobby and passion. Visiting Rwanda on my first ever trip and coming from Dubai, I was looking forward to several lifers. Before the travel, I contacted Claudien (I found his profile on eBird) and he gladly agreed to help me go birding and subsequently assigned a very knowledgeable bird guide- Joseph. We had pre identified the Nyandungu Urban Wetland Eco-tourism Park as our hotspot - a very well preserved conservation park right in the heart of Kigali. We birded for just over 3 hours and I was gifted with a whopping 50 species, almost 40 of them were lifers! What more could one ask for!! I was delighted with the nature’s Avifauna and biodiversity that Rwanda has!! All thanks to the very diligent and sincere efforts by Joseph who is very friendly and in spite of his deep knowledge, is very humble. He took efforts to explain all the species we sighted and even sometimes carried my rather bulky camera. He really wanted me to see, hear and experience as many birds as possible. We had a fantastic afternoon with several beautiful sightings and calls. He even assisted me later with identifying calls that I recorded in the next few days. I would strongly recommend going birding with Birding and educational tours Rwanda.

Wonderful guided birding in Kigali and Akagera I went for 2 weekend trips with Claudien to do some birding in Kigali and in Akagera. Claudien organised everything very smoothly, arranging 2 days of birdwatching in and around Kigali and then a 2-day trip to the southern part of Akagera. It was really worthwhile going with him as a guide, as he pointed out numerous birds to me and also played their songs which even helped us see shy birds.

The variety of bird species we encountered in Rwanda's diverse landscapes was impressive, and the accommodations were comfortable and well-chosen. I highly recommend this tour for a fantastic and well-organized adventure in Rwanda!

Perfect 12 days Our 12 day birding trip including 5 days in Nyungwe National Park and 5 days in Akagera Park not forgetting the Kigali region was perfect. Our guide Jean-Pierre in Nyungwe is a very good ornithologist, he knows "his" forest perfectly and was able to give us an overview of his skills. I would also like to thank Alex our guide and driver who accompanied us throughout our trip. His professionalism, kindness and practical sense are a guarantee of safety and comfort. Thanks to him and all the other guides present during our stay. Without a doubt, this trip perfectly met my expectations.

Bird watching in and around Kigali - Rwanda What a day out! I approached the Birding and Educational Tours (Rwanda) team to facilitate some guided bird watching near Kigali during a recent visit to the city. I had limited time available in a busy week of meetings with a local NGO, so was looking for an intensive day's birding close to the city before heading back to the UK late that night. My driver and guide for the day were brilliant. Very friendly and both very knowledgeable. We visited two sites, Bugesera and the Nyandungu Urban Wetlands centre (only 15 mins from the airport). It was a great day's birding, Jean-Pierre my guide was excellent, with great knowledge of all the birds in the locations we visited, his energy and enthusiasm made the day a real joy. We saw 9 species in transit to the morning site, 46 species while at Bugesera and a further 38 in the afternoon at Nyandungu. Our lunchtime stop off in Kigali was also great, tapping into a local cultural food outlet which was very enjoyable. For me, a real novice birder in Africa, this was the most effective way of getting in some high quality birding - thank you to Jean-Pierre and Alexi for making it such a special and satisfying day. They even dropped me to the airport at the end of the day ready for my journey home. All round brilliant experience - I would highly recommend this organisation.
