Michael Distler During a Gorilla Trek in Parc National Des Volcans, Rwanda

Michael was great. He planned a trip of a lifetime and everything came off perfectly. All hotels, transfers restaurants, and of course, the safari camp were all top-notch.


Michael was a fabulous advisor. This trip was one of the best experiences of my life. Every detail was covered thoroughly. I never worried about where I was supposed to be or what was happening next. Everything was perfect. If you are considering a Safari I would highly recommend using Michael’s services.


I really enjoyed everything about working with Michael for our trip. His attention to detail, follow-up, and thoroughness was so much appreciated. He’s also sooo courteous and thoughtful. It was a real pleasure and plan to work with him in the future!
