Reviews

'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'
