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

The whole vacation was memorable but the gorilla and chimpanzee encounters were definitely the most exciting and extraordinary.

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

Take all the advice that the tour operator offers you, relax and enjoy.

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

The vacation obviously benefitted locals involved in tourism most. The community walks where we leant more about local ways of life and saw life up close were simple and were of benefit to the local community. They were interesting and seemed to reinforce pride in local ways and traditions. The gorilla and chimpanzee tracking helps to preserve and conserve the groups of chimps and gorillas which are now protected in their natural rain forest environment.

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

The vacation was better than we had imagined. We were well looked after by Primate World Safaris. We felt safe, saw and experienced a variety of environments and wildlife. Our guide/driver was informative and good company.

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

The two trekking experiences - chimpanzee and gorilla - were by far the most memorable. Memories that will last forever.

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

Be aware that the sightings of the big five are just not as often as neighbouring countries - there is no Serengeti equivalent. Additionally for they who are of advanced years or not in peak condition physically it should be made aware to such travelers that the gorilla trek can be VERY taxing.

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

To a degree. Visits to local communities were infrequent - a visit to the medicine man was the only specifically aimed at local enterprises. The inclusion of porters on the primate treks benefited they who were chosen to assist with backpacks.

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

It was a vacation I shall not forget. I went primarily to see the big primates and the sightings far surpassed expectation.

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

Gorilla tracking and Chimpanzee habituation

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

You have to do it. Uganda is the perfect place to be if you want to track primates.

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

Yes

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

I had a great time. It was a dream that came true. The tracking of these gorgeous animals was once in a lifetime experience. But also I met friendly smiling people everywhere. Local food is not bad at all also. Good services: accommodation and transportation. Great scenery especially Lake Bunyoni and Bwindi forest. Rafting at the White Nile was fun. Kampala was a chaos, traffic jam that you cannot imagine.
