Superb highlights; two gorilla days- two boat trips- Ugandan Dancers- Semliki lodge- Elephant plains lodge- Chimp habituation walk-Primate Lodge

Driver/guides were great; flexible and informative. 

Need an extra day to acclimatise at altitude in Rwanda before trekking for gorilla.

I had a wonderful time in Rwanda and Uganda and I would like to thank you both for all your efforts in arranging and planning the trip. The two guide, Augustine and Peter were first class, professional and their great humour & cheerfulness was fundamental in keeping group moral on some of the more challenging days. They were a pleasure to be with and huge asset to the tour.

Personally I was happy with virtually everything on the trip, the lodges, the places visited, the food, the whole adventure! Without wishing to add any negative tones, the only fundamental changes that would have eased some tensions with some people are the following:-

- Many companies have a tip pool, which the guide leader deals with on a daily basis, in which you start out by handing over

- The first gorilla tracking in which we climbed up to almost 3200m  -  most did not have suitable footwear. Now I thought that your notes were clear enough, but for others the trek difficulty, the mud, the type of walking gear required came as a shock. Maybe that needs high-lighting for future trips.

For me, I was happy with everything and I felt that anyone with common sense would appreciate what they had signed up for...  The countries of Rwanda and Uganda are beautiful places with warm, polite and welcoming people. I feel privileged to have visited them both, and for that I thank you both.

Well done both of you for doing a fantastic job.

Kind Regards,

Paul

'The trip (Uganda Gorilla & Game:Group Safari) was great.

Enjoyed all lodges, loved Buhoma more. All staff were great.

The gorilla trekking was great - came back after 6 hours for the 1st trek.  The sightings were great and the Uganda Wildlife Authority guide was engaging and passionate.

The forest walk was amazing, though it had an effect on their fitness the next day for gorilla trekking.

Ham (our guide) was a star. He was very knowledgeable. The vehicle was good and comfortable.

Gorilla trekking was the safari highlight'

'Dennis, our guide, was a star. He couldn't do enough. Seeing the gorillas and other wildlife was fantastic. This was one of the best holidays in Africa. 

Kyaninga Lodge: this was absolutely stunniing. So friendly. 

Mweya Lodge was excellent. The pet mongoose and boat ride were great. 

Ishasha Wilderness Tented Camp: great fun avoiding a Cape buffalo on the way back from dinner.

Mihingo Lodge: the bushbaby was great. 

This was a brilliant holiday in every respect. The widlife was stunning - we were lucky we saw the gorillas after only 30 minutes walk. The cat tracking provided excellent photo opportunities and the chimp and boat rides were stunning, but above all the friendliness of the people was something to behold. 

Once again thanks for organising an excellent holiday. 

All the best'

'All the lodges were very good, with great food, rooms were nice and the staff. Excellent choice of accommodation.  The gorilla trekking was great, the round trip lasted about 7 hours.  

David was a fabulous guide and fun to be with, he was very knowledgeable and answered every other question he was asked. Gorilla trek was the highlight, the boat trip was great too'.

This was our favourite place – it was in a beautiful, relaxing setting, and is probably the best bush camp we have ever stayed in. It was very well designed so that even though the room facilities were basic, they all worked well meaning it was actually very comfortable. Also the savannah viewing was better ...as there were far fewer vehicles. We would recommend people stay at least three nights if wildlife viewing is more important than modern day facilities to them.

The facilities at Ishasha Wilderness Camp were as expected in a tented accomodation but it was more than made up for by the wonderful location and attentive staff.

The accommodation we stayed in was extremely good …The other [favourite lodge] being the Ishasha Wilderness camp, great location, welcoming/friendly staff, especially Karen and David, excellent food again, enjoyable 'bucket' showers and not forgetting the 'outside' toilets.
