Uganda at it's best

The trip was excellent. Everything worked as planned. The two drivers and guides have made an amazing job .

My main reason why I booked this trip was the opportunity to take part on 2 gorilla trackings. It was one of the best experience in nature what I've had so far (and I've made five safaris before ..).

I can recommend gorilla tour, you will not get disappointed and the trip is worth every cent.

Extremely happy with our tour

We booked the Gorillas, Chimps and QENP trip very late indeed. Gorilla Tours were very good in organising the trip and offered flexible solutions for the lack of desired accommodation on some nights. Our driver Norbert was excellent and quite literally saved our lives via his driving skill when a bus overtook on a corner. The vehicle was in great working order and was perfect for the tour needs. Gorilla Tours also own and use some wonderful lodges the grounds of which are full of wildlife. Uganda is a warm and friendly country and I'd recommend it as a place to visit to anyone. If you are going to go, use Gorilla Tours, you get a great service for the fraction of the price of a European based tour company. I will definitely use them again.

The perfect gorilla/ chimps tour, in a wonderful country and at an affordable price

The tour was above our (high) expectations, although we use to travel a lot and have visited many countries.

Everything was perfect, from the pick up at the airport to the end.
We got our gorilla permits, nice but affordable accomodation, a great guide, friendly and professional.
We went there to see the gorillas and discovered a fantastic country: amazing landscapes (thje kisoro area is incredible), great people (we felt 100% safe everywhere), unique wildlife. We definitely want to come back for the northern loop.

Yes, the gorilla permits are expensive but i didn't met anyone there who had any regret. Just the road in the misty mountains would be worth the trip. It may be stressful to pay in advance for the permits, but GT seems perfectly reliable.
Gorillas are very special, they have a charisma that i never felt with any other animal and are so peaceful.

Just go for it. It's an experience you will never forget.

Good quality safari that was well organized, and with pleasant people to deal with.

Gorilla Tours was super to deal with and they delivered a good quality safari. I had been to many African countries in the past, but this was my first trip to Uganda. Virgo at Gorilla Tours was prompt and described everything well. Everyone in our group of travelers really enjoyed how organized everything was, the quality and the descriptions provided all the information that we needed. Ronnie our driver/guide was excellent and went out of his way to make sure we had the best possible adventure. I highly recommend Gorilla Tours if you are seeking a good primate safari for both chimpanzees and gorillas.

Such an Incredible Experience

I absolutely loved my experience with Gorilla Tours! I scheduled my trip very last minute and they were very accommodating and great about answering all of my questions. The safaris were so incredible and it was such a cool experience getting to see so many animals; lions, giraffes, antelope, zebras and so much more! Getting the experience to hike and see the gorillas brought tears to my eyes because I never imagined I would find myself having the opportunity to do that! I loved getting to drive through the country of Uganda and our guide was so knowledgeable and shared so much information about the country, the land, the people, everything about it! As a solo traveller of only 20 years old, I was a little nervous about embarking on the journey but, Gorilla Tours was great about making me feel safe and well looked after. If you are searching for an overall amazing experience, Gorilla Tours is the way to go! And if you are heading to Uganda, make sure to ask for Ronnie, he is the best!!

A wonderful Ugandan experience

Thank you gorilla tours for organising such a fantastic Ugandan holiday. Safe to say it was a holiday of a lifetime. Great accommodation all reasonably priced; a safe, knowledgeable driver and of course the beauty of Uganda. Seeing the Chimps and Gorillas is something everyone should do once and use Gorilla Tours if you can.
