Fantastic experience and amazing tour guide

My husband and I did the 3 day Gorilla Trek and Golden Monkeys, starting and finishing in Kigali.
We have been so impressed with this tour. The lodgings and the experiences themselves far exceeded our expectations.
Our lodging (Rushaga Gorilla Lodge) was fantastic. The location was beautiful and the staff were so lovely and helpful.
All of the guides, trackers and support people involved in the treks were brilliant.
Our highest regard goes to our tour guide, Jackson. We are so thankful that he was assigned to us. His local knowledge was amazing. He went above and beyond for us, specially catered to our interest in trying local food and could answer any question we could possibly think of. He made us and our belongings feel very safe and secure at all times. In addition, he was such a friendly and nice man who absolutely made this trip even more spectacular.
Thank you so much Jackson, and Bamboo Ecotours.

Best Gorilla Trekking Experience and more

Edison was absoluely amazing in organizing the perfect 10+ experience from Rwanda to Uganda tour for 6 of us. Logistics and itinerary of this trip was efficient and so perfect that we also rate it 5 star+ Our guide Freddy is best in class, knowledgeable, caring and safe. He picked us up in the 1-year new Safari truck at the Kigali Fourpoint Sheraton--which is also a great pick-up point and hotel. All the food and accommodations exceeded our expectations, clean, comfortable and delicious. We had absolutely the most amazing time and thought a need to post great reviews for so other travelers may benefit from visiting Rwanda and Uganda with the best travel company possible so they can enjoy the best possible experience. It was truly the treat of a lifetime to visit the Rwanda and Uganda. Bamboo Ecotour is very good and they deserve 6-star or 7-star. All the Gold Monkey, Gorilla, Chimpanzee and cultural experience are must-see. We can not thank enough or say enough good things about Edison and Freddy and this tour.

Thank You Thank You and Thank You!!!

I wish there are more stars to rate and give to them!!

Since the beginning we contacted Edison, he has been very responsive and provided valuable and truthful information to help us make decisions about this tour... especially related to the accommodations and costs. The design and delivery of the itinerary is also the best in class. Our driver guide Fred speaks good English and is clam, patient, easy going and drive safely. Every time we got back into the 7-passenger safari truck, there is always a bottled water waiting for us in our seats. And the truck even has charging outlets for each passenger. Fred is also very observant and proactively helps us work with the national parks so we could have a shorter hike to see the gorillas. We had a fabulous time for this once in a lifetime experience!! We definitely recommend our family and friends to go with Edison and team coming to Rwanda-Uganda 👍👍

Epitome of excellence.

Complete value for money. Good variety of packages. Caters for all budgets. I am already planning my next trip, the last one ended yesterday.
Efficient communications. Well versed about their product offering. Professional trustworthy considerate and kind.
Punctual! From end to end.

I recommend them a billion percent.

An unforgettable experience

My partner and I had a trip of a lifetime thanks to Bamboo Ecotours. We did a 4 day tour involving a golden monkey trek at Volcanoes, and gorilla trekking at Bwindi.

Edison, the founder of the company, was exceptional when organising our tour - super quick with his responses, professional and attentive to our needs. He managed to provide us with an itinerary which suited our preferences, budget and was great value for money. We also had to book last minute but Edison was very flexible with the payment/refund policy.

Our guide Herbert was amazing - he was considerate, knowledgeable and skilful at driving! The roads in Uganda are no joke - super bumpy and muddy when wet. One of the most memorable times of our entire Africa trip was when on the morning of our gorilla trek, the one-way road which led to Bwindi was blocked by a broken down truck. With only centimetres to spare from the cliff's edge, Herbert safely and expertly did a U-turn and got us to the trek on time. He also made sure to contact the park so that even if we were late, we'd still get to do the trek.

Our accommodation at Mutanda Lake Resort was also a highlight. The views of the volcanoes in the background and the lake in the foreground will forever be etched in my memory.

What also sets Bamboo Ecotours apart is their commitment to supporting disadvantaged communities in the area who are overlooked by the tourism sector, by providing financial support and only hiring guides who come from these communities.

We highly recommend Bamboo Ecotours and will definitely be using them again when we're back in Uganda!
