Reviews for Uganda gorilla express tour


review 15 Aug 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

I can`t cone it down to one thing. It was the combination of a wonderful country, spectacular wildlife and the welcoming atmosphere of the people and staff in the extraordinary lodges. The tour was locally made possible due to an excellent guide who made the logistics right there smooth and pleasant, who was very knowledgeable and highly motivated to provide a good experience for us in a cheerful and safe atmosphere. Tracking the gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was of course one of the highlights and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Get some information about the gorillas, their habitat and behavior before seeing them. Follow the recommendations in terms of health and safety issues, it makes the vacation much easier and carefree.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, it seemed as in Uganda tourism is just evolving, we could help people and their problems right then and there, though of course, our contributions must remain minuscule considering the dimension of support needed. I met very optimistic and creative young local people, who deserve all our support and help.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A fantastic experience, a bit more time would have been great, a lasting impression of fragile yet intact nature and wildlife, very welcoming and friendly people my rating would be between 4-5 stars
