We had an unbelievable visit to Rwanda in 2011 and I recommend Freddy and East Africa Explorer enthusiastically. It was one of the best weeks of my life; everything we did was fantastic.

"I was referred to Freddy through a personal recommendation from another traveller - already a good sign in my books! Freddy is an extremely personable guide and knows how to showcase the beauty of his country. He created an itinerary that suited my requirements exactly and was quick to respond to emails and calls. His knowledge of East Africa is exceptional from the amazing wildlife of the region to the historical sites, people, food and culture. I would recommend East Africa Eco Explorer to anyone considering a trip to the region."

"As a travel photographer, my visit to Rwanda was the most fascinating and powerful experience I've had in a very long time. I went to Rwanda with the objective of working on a series of stock images about Africa. What I found in Rwanda far exceeded my expectations. The immense and beautiful natural environment of Rwanda is deeply moving. The pervasive sense of peace and every rwandese's commitment to progress is truly remarkable. What made my discovery of Rwanda even richer was Freddy's deep knowledge of Rwanda, his extensive list of contacts and his impressive ability to coordinate the logistics and activities made my trip to Rwanda very successful and one I will never forget. I am planning to return to work on a new photographic project and will be heavily reliant on Freddy's East Africa Eco Explorer company for this project's success."

"I have been visiting Rwanda several times each year since 2004
and have found Freddy Budaramani to be THE BEST - hands down.
His attention to detail and tireless efforts to show his country
in the best possible light to guests in his charge is unmatched.
I demand reliability and ingenuity as I am the founder of a non-profit
organization and am often traveling with donors or potential donors.
Nothing short of a near perfect experience will do -- and Freddy delivers
"Tourism in Rwanda has not yet evolved to the level achieved in East
African hotspots like Kenya or Tanzania. I have also found that when
traveling anywhere in Africa, challenges seem to be the rule, not the
exception. Freddy and his staff at East Africa Explorer keep their guests
feeling safe and extremely well looked after at all times. I can't say
enough about Freddy and his team - If you are traveling to Rwanda East
Africa Explorer is the absolute best!"
"Freddy is a very personable and 'open' man - you're his guest in
Rwanda, and his personal and patriotic pride demand that he make you
welcome. His knowledge of the birds and animals is quite extraordinary,
and his willingness to talk about and explain anything you can think to
ask makes your time with him unforgettable."
