I think it was 1998 when I first travelled with Gorilkla Tours. And I keep coming back.

As I visit Uganda since 1992 I usually tell Virgo which route I want to take and at which lodges I want to stay and how much time I have. Out of this Virgp creates a tailor made safari. And as my brother told me last year, just when you think it can` not get any better then Virgo has arranged something special. A boat alone for yourself were nobody stands in front of your camera and where you have all the time in the world. The most important person of a safari is the driver, he is more of a manager and with Ronald Ssempewa you are taken care of. And even driving he sees everything first, fom Lion to northern carmie bee-eater. The cars are new and with the roof up your camera is free to swing around. Summary: accomodation, driver, management, price, and of course the people of Uganda, very good and very friendly. Goralla tracking you can do in Rwanda or Uganda, Virgo is getting you the permits and everything you need to know .

The whole experience was excellent, especially the Gorillas

The whole experience was first class, surpassed expectations, with excellent communication and service and our tour went like clockwork. Would recommend the service to anyone wishing to visit Uganda. The gorilla and chimpanzee visits are a World class experience.

Thanks to Francis, our super chauffeur and Gorillas Tours for bringing us to this wonderful country, Uganda, with the perfect climate under the equator, thanks to its altitude.
Beautiful landscapes, abundant wildlife that looks to pass with a curiosity as great as ours.
The population is very friendly, security is everywhere, the use of the English language is recommended

Great value for money: friendly, flexible and experienced guide.

We had a great journey with Richard as our guide. He was knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. The tour was tailored to our wishes, well organized and the overall experience was awe-inspiring. We chose budget options mostly, which offered very pleasant accommodations along the way.

A Hike among the Gorillas

I was very pleased with my Gorilla Tours experience. Gorilla Tours arranged for me to travel with another family and we had a great drive through some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. The Airport Rest House and the Gorilla Valley Resort provided excellent accommodation. We saw gorillas after a short tough hike which left us with time to tour a local village, Rushaga. It was a great experience. I strongly recommend Gorilla Tours. The company was well organized, accommodating and provided an excellent service.

Way exceeded our expectations!

Communication was thorough and timely. We were asked about adding a fourth person to our party and that worked out wonderfully and cost us less per person. The driver was first of all an extraordinary driver. We were in good hands. It's a very long 9 hour drive from Entebbe. Our driver was pleasant, answered all our questions, and was tolerant of our 'tourist ways and attitudes'. Definitely an under-employed young man. He stopped by the roadside so I could buy Ugandan grown tea. There was an informative introduction on the day of the hike. Even so I was not prepared for the magnitude of what we were doing. We stood quietly, 10 feet away from a gorilla family having their breakfast! We had 3 guides who knew the gorillas by name. We had porters, which I did not expect. The climb was steep. My husband said the Ugandans do not believe in switch backs. We had an outstanding trip from start to finish.

Fantastic tour, great guide, well organized! Couldn't have asked for a better trip.

We had a great time and the entire trip was well planned and executed by Gorilla tours. Our guide was knowledgable and very efficient. I loved our accommodations - all of them had tons of character and ambiance. The service was great as well as the locations. We wanted to make a very last minute change and our guide was very helpful and willing to do this. And it was a great value! I have no hesitation in recommending Gorilla Tours.

Amazing experience thanks to Gorilla Tours

I found Gorilla Tours after doing some online research, I contacted for information & received a very prompt detailed response so decided to book. The booking process was all via email & very easy. Virgo was my main point of contact & was happy to help with all my questions & organised every detail of the trip.
When we arrived in Uganda we met our guide/ driver James. James is excellent & made our trip so memorable, he is eagle eyed & able to spot & identify wildlife from long distances, he has great knowledge about birds also.
All accommodations were great, the staff looked after us so well.

We had the best of experiences, I can see why Uganda is known as the pearl of Africa. I would happily recommend Gorilla Tours
