Quite a tough hike up - took about four hours in total and we had to climb into the undergrowth - but this depends on where the gorillas are that day. Ranger (Sarah) was excellent. Trackers were great and we came unbelievably close to the...More

I have done safari before, and felt that was experiencing "real wild" animals. This is a whole different level! You are not in a jeep or a boat and the animals are all around you. The day starts with a brief overview of the day,...More

The park was amazing and our guide was fantastic at showing us through the jungle safely in order to see the Gorillas. I personally hated it when we had to cut down the bushes and start trekking up the vines that the monkeys played on...More

We had an amazing time visiting with the gorillas! The trackers, guides and porters were all very professional. Our hour of gorilla time included visiting a group of 12 gorillas including 2 babies. The babies were the big hit as they were "showing off" the...More

This is really something very special. A moving experience, and a privilege to be able to visit these beautiful creatures in their rapidly receding habitat. All around the forest, for miles/kilometers all you can see is the human destruction of what must once have been...More

We had a terrific family adventure with our two young adult kids (age 18 and 20). The trek was very well organized, and geared to our capacity (just barely). We were put into the "easy" group, so only had to hike about an hour and...More

I was part of an Acacia Tour to see the gorillas. We were staying a fair way away so we were up very early to drive for about 90 minutes to Rushaga Gate. Make sure you're wearing long sleeves and trousers and tuck your trousers...More

We did gorilla trekking with Nomad Africa Tours in June. One of the best experiences of my life! Depending on where you find the gorillas, it might take 1-5 hours of uphill bush-whacking to get there, but it is worth it. Do yourself a favour...More

Also...the price at low season is considerably less. It is challenging to get from either Entebbe or Kampala to Bwindi if you don't know your way around, or aren't willing to risk an adventure. The public transportation... More
