Good communication, good planning

We planned 4 days gorilla and chimpanzee trekking tour plus lake Buyonyi visit with Bamboo. They helped with every aspect of the trip during uncertain times. Everything worked very smooth. We stayed in nice clean places. Our Driver/ Guide was great

Just easy, professional and affordable

Backpacking in East Africa is quite hard (especially during COVID) and I have to say that with Bamboo Ecotours I had the best experience in all East Africa. Communication through email and whatsapp was quick, clear and professional. Payment happened easily with no extra cost through an secured online platform (very thankful for no cash when you have to pay 700$ for only the gorilla permit). My guide and driver was great and the vehicle excellent. They helped me to do all the activities I wanted from Kisoro for a reasonable price and by reducing all the buzz around. They also helped my with logistics sush as accomodation and buses. I did the gorilla trek in Bwindi and hiked Sabyinyo in Mgahinga, plus a transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. I reccomend the activites as well as Bamboo Ecotours! Uganda is beautiful!

Budget tour to trek the gorillas in Bwindi National Park

I chose Bamboo EcoTours for their budget-friendly option to trek the gorillas in Bwindi National Park. They provided me transportation from Kisoro to Buhoma and return to Kabale. Although my gorilla trekking experience was rather underwhelming, I nevertheless enjoyed the ride as Jackson was very professional and helpful. Perhaps if the tour included a packed lunch for the price I paid that would've been even nicer.

Expert organisation of four-day Gorilla Trek in Uganda

Bamboo Ecotours were really great to deal with. Edison was prompt in answering emails and queries. The trip worked out perfectly and met our expectations without exception. We were able to fit everything into a tight schedule. Our guides Joseph and Herbert were very well organised and made sure we had a good time and were always safe and well looked after. The gorilla trek itself was real highlight and was very well coordinated. It only took one hour to get to the spot where our designated family group appeared to be waiting for us to arrive. We were amazed to find the gorillas sitting around going about their daily business and not bothered by our presence. The thrill of being so close to these wonderful creatures and sensing how comfortable they were was truly beautiful. To know that they were not threatened by us, was the most rewarding experience. We were able to observe them for more than an hour and of course took plenty of great photos and videos of the silver backs, mothers, juveniles and a couple of adorable babies. We also hired (our own expense) a porter to assist with our bags and getting us up and down the muddy mountainside. This was agreed to be very worthwhile. During our four-day tour we also travelled through three other parks and saw a variety of wildlife up close. We got to see nearly all of the creatures mentioned in our itinerary. The accommodation booked by Bamboo Ecotours was of a very high standard and did not disappoint. The guides were very punctual and thorough in their organisation of our tour and we felt we received great value for money. I would highly recommend Bamboo Ecotours to anyone wanting to make a similar trek through Uganda and/or Rwanda.

Great way to see the best of Ugandan Wildlife

I had an amazing experience in Uganda thanks to Bamboo Ecotours. The 5 day tour covers everything! You see Gorillas, do game drives for local wildlife, a game boat ride, and see the chimps. They put the entire package together and made it all work. I would definitely use them again.
