Maybe it was because it was low season, but be did get a room with detached bathroom for $30USD/night. At times there was no electricity, and at other times there was no water, but the lunch buffet is great (1500Rwsh)- just remember you can only pile up your plate once, so stack it high.

... English (or are trying to anyway) but want to respect that I am there and if I can greet them in their language I should (just as they were exceedingly respectful and greeted me in the language they assumed was mine), but other times it's just because it's become a bit automatic here. I think the hardest phrase to shake will be "Ntakibazo" (no problem). We say it so often in nearly every situation and context, partly because it's humorous and fun to say.

... got bowled over twice! The group we were allocated was Amahora (meaning peace). A family of 20 mountain gorillas including 4 silver backs, one dominant one, a few ladies and a 2 babies and everything in between. An intense and amazing experience. I can't believe we were so close. The majority of 400 pics are useless, but don't end up as bad as I had envisaged and have kept only 100! Very excited to be doing this all again ...
