Tailormade Africa Reviews

What people are saying about Tailormade Africa

Kathryn H

Clyde and the whole Tailormade Africa group exceeded my already high expectations for our trip. Communications were extremely easy, and we were able to customise our tour to exactly what we hoped to do.

All of the suggestions the team provided were spot on and our trip was so much fun. It made our whole trip experience more relaxing knowing that Tailormade was there to help us along the way and planned the trip perfectly for us.

Mike R

I thoroughly enjoyed my Tailormade Africa experience in Rwanda. The service was brilliant. My guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The gorilla trekking experience was a once in a lifetime event that I will remember forever. I couldn't recommend it more!

Michael & Christine R

Simply the Best! What we like about Tailormade Africa and the team is that you feel you are the only clients. Friendly and personable it is a treat to deal with such a company. Clyde was on hand throughout our trip and there were moments of extra magic which we experienced due to their reputation.

Preferred hotels

A small selection of Tailormade Africa's carefully-selected hotels. All hotels can be changed to suit your requirements and budget


The Bishops House

Bishops House is a newly renovated accommodation a convenient 30 minutes from Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. The hotel offers fine accommodation at a competitive price with the atmosphere of a colonial manor house. Bishops House has nine rooms - six standard and two junior suites, as well as a presidential suite. All rooms offer television, mini bar, and en-suite bathrooms. On the grounds, visitors will find a spacious lounge and terrace, as well as a small library, a smart dining area, and a gorgeous, walled garden with tropical trees and flowers.


Virunga Lodge

The Virunga Lodge is one of Africa’s finest and most renowned lodges. Perched high on a ridge with stunning views of the Virunga Volcanoes, the lodge offers fine views, uniquely decorated rooms in the Rwandese style, fantastic food and exceptional and personalised service.


Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

The lodge is only minutes away from the headquarters of the Parc National des Volcans from where clients trek on foot to see the magnificent Mountain Gorilla – perhaps one of the most dramatic, thrilling and poignant wildlife experiences possible. Accommodation at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge comprises six double cottages, two suites and one family suite. All are stone buildings with Rwandese terracotta tile roofs, and feature large sitting areas, fireplaces, stylish en-suite bathrooms.


Bisate Lodge

Bisate Lodge is located in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone and has dramatic views of the peaks of the volcanoes Bisoke and Karisimbi rearing up through the Afro-alpine forests of nearby Volcanoes National Park. Six luxurious en-suite villas maximise comfort and views while retaining environmental principles and reflecting the culture of rural Rwanda. Each guest contributes to Bisate’s biodiversity conservation and local community projects – making a far-reaching impact on an iconic Critically Endangered species: the mountain gorilla.


Singita Kwitonda Lodge

Boasting breathtaking views of the Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura volcanoes and surrounded by high-altitude forests, Singita Kwitonda Lodge offers an experience unlike any of Singita’s other destinations. With its exceptional natural beauty, environmentally conscious luxury and transformative, purpose-driven experiences, the lodge was designed in response to this remarkable location, and the eight contemporary suites (as well as the private four-bedroom villa – Kataza House) are linked by volcanic rock pathways to the central lodge.
