Reviews          

Wow, what a trip! Seeing the chimps and gorillas in their natural environment on this walking safari really was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. With so few gorillas in the wild it was a very special experience, one I'll treasure for a long time. Uganda itself is a very beautiful country and has lots of wildlife to be seen, including the big five and countless colourful birds.

With fewer than 900 mountain gorillas left in the world, this is a privileged opportunity to see these magnificent beasts in their natural habitat. Accompanied by our expert ranger guide we track a family of gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and observe their behaviour and daily life. The chance to encounter such rare wildlife at close quarters is a truly remarkable experience. We will also spend a full day tracking chimpanzees in the Kibale National Park, watching how they hunt, feed, play and interact.

In addition to our time with the apes we enjoy a boat trip on the Nile, scenic walks to beautiful viewing points and safaris in several of Uganda’s other game-rich national parks giving us an excellent chance of spotting the big five: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino.

We stay in characterful lodges and a safari camp set in delightful locations, where we can relax and feel at one with the magnificent natural surroundings of this captivating African land.
