Life changing experience

I was apprehensive about traveling alone but Gorilla Tours were always there to answer any questions I had they organised all my ground transport, the accommodation was fabulous and I always felt safe. The drive to the Bwindi National Park was long but my driver was accommodating stopping so I could take photos and meet the locals. This is an amazing life experience that I will forever be grateful for, I would recommend it to anyone and really hope to go again one day. I would totally recommend Gorilla Tours.

Marvelous experience

Though we spent only an hour with the gorilla family, it was a perfect experience. Our family was the "good family," with two silver backs, a couple "teens," mom and a sister, and a baby not quite a year old. It took only an hour of trekking for us to reach our family in the dense forest. And the Gorilla Valley Lodge with its' magnificent views made "gorillas in the midst" come alive. I also stayed at the lodge where the author of "Gorillas in the Midst" did her note taking and relaxing. Another perfect setting, with a lodge that had a bar, a fire place, and a lodge dog that was very friendly. Took the Batwa Trail, and loved the sights. And, finally, the folks at the Travelers' Lodge near the airport were more than accommodating, with an evening dinner on the lawn in the courtyard. The guide/driver was charming and I loved driving through Uganda and taking photos of these charming people. All this at an affordable price.

Impossible to have been any better!

Gorilla Tours was exceptional in its communication, friendliness, and quality. The tour was tailored exactly to our needs and requests. The lodge was among the best places I have ever stayed. The jeep was clean and in perfect condition. When my wife casually mentioned she would like to see baby gorillas, our guide, Ronald, made sure to get us into a group that had had recent births. Though we expected to hike a little to see the gorillas, we were face to face with them within about 10 minutes. Our proximity to them and the photo opportunities were beyond anything we could have imagined... literally a few meters from us. We spent the rest of the day exploring the countryside and meeting the local farmers and villagers in the valley which was wonderful. I give the highest recommendation to Gorilla Tours.

Great service, availability, good advice

From the first minute to the last, everything went smoothly. While planning, Violet was very helpful to answer our questions and suggest a program. Mosha, our driver and guide made a wonderful job, very professional while very personal too, always listening to our needs. We highly recommend Gorilla Tours to whoever wants to visit Uganda.

A very great and unforgettable experience with Gorilla Tours

We are just back from a ten days trip in Uganda organized by Gorilla tours. The program was very complete and gave us the opportunity to visit various parts of this so beautifull country: Murchison Falls, Rhino Sanctuary, Kibale Forest, Queen Elizabeth NP, Bwindi, Lake Bunyonyi.. We apprecieted a lot the very good location and services of the different lodges, which were always situated in a very nice environment (view on the Nile River in Murchison, or on the equatoral rain forest in Kibale and Bwindi, or on the Kazinga Channel with a view on the elephants bathing in front of our tent in Queen Elizabeth Bush Camp... We also apprecieted the company of our guide/driver, Ronny, which is an excellent and very carefull driver and has a perfect knowledge of all the visited places. We also appreciated the very good communication with Virgo who gave us an immediate and appropriate answer to all our requests and demands. The program and the service were conform and even up to all our expectations. In all the visited places and lodges, we found a very kind and smiling hospitality, and very good food. We saw a lot of animals in vey good conditions and the chimps and gorilla trackings were very nice and unforgetable experience. We recommand Gorilla Tours and their programs to anyone whish to visit Uganda.

Amazing tour including good office support and great driver during the trip

We love Uganda and very much appreciated the flexibility by Gorilla Tours to pick us up from Mukono.
Ronald was a competent driver and very pleasant and knowledgeable company.
We will definitely keep coming back to Uganda
