It was astonishing when we jumped out of comfortable beds to have breakfast and then stride high the mountainous place to meet the rare species. It is a memory that can never be erased.

My travel from Kabale to Ruhija was a friendly one and the UWA Ndego Gate helped give us the briefing and welcome remarks. Thank you

We went Gorilla trekking in Bwindi with my son as part of our one week in Uganda and it was an amazing moment standing in front of Gorillas and seeing them in their home. Truly emotional moment!

There are many companies. I used Let’s Go Safaris in Kigali. They cover both Rwanda and Uganda. I found them very helpful and knowledgeable, as well as reasonably priced.
