My husband and I did the gorilla trek on Sept 18th and with that fulfilled a bucket list wish I always had of seeing the gorillas. We were put in a group of 8 people total and we were fortunate in that we found the...More
We debated a lot whether or not to go to Rwanda or Uganda to see the gorillas. Ultimately due to the lower cost in Uganda, we chose Bwindi and loved it! At the beginning, there is some performance where a group sings for you, which...More

If you've dreamt of trekking with mountain gorillas in one of the most beautiful mountain forests EVER -- this is it!! The guides are super knowledgable and passionate about the gorilla families and the experience from start to finish is one to remember forever!

The NP is breath-taking. Mountains, rain forest, surrounded by small villages with cultivated fields of potatoes, a variety of other food crops, and tea farms. Home to families of habituated and wild gorillas. If you plan to do the trek please be aware that you...More

Hi and sorry for my delayed reply. During our trip through Bwindi we saw not a single one of the ants. However the guides warned us about them and we had our socks over the pants. We were there in January, maybe the season has also an influence. Since we did not go to Rwanda, I don't know how the situation is there.
