Amazing holiday with Go Explore safaris
This was a well-planned holiday and the service provided by Go Explore safaris and it was world class. Everything for the hotels locations to the standard of service whilst on safari we couldn’t have gone any better. I would recommend the service of Gorilla tour booking safaris to anybody thanks to the team and our driver Dickson who was so professional in taking us all over Uganda.

What an Amazing Beautiful and Friendly Country!
Uganda is an amazingly beautiful country! With nice accommodations, beautiful scenery and great variation. From the savannah landscapes of Elizabeth National Park, to the great lakes with and the jungle of the impenetrable forest of Bwindi.
The wildlife is great, with the Mountain Gorillas but with also many other different kind of species like Chimpanzees, Hippo's, Uganda cobs, Lions and even Leopards. Some more abundant then others of course.
Uganda does also have a very rich birdlife.
I expected lots of rain but even when we were there, in the rainy season, the number of days we had rain were very limited. We had great weather with a lot of nice and sunny days.
The people in Uganda have good English skills and are really very friendly.
Only the roads could use a big upgrade. Prepare to have some bumpy rides!

Uganda, it's people and it's wildlife are nothing but highlights.
Never to be forgotten, hope to go back...
Stunning country - beautiful surroundings, amazing wildlife and world's friendliest people..
We had an amazing time, and from Ginja to Bwindi found the most friendly people, beautiful scenery and stunning wildlife..
Disappointed about the poor road infrastructure and length of road journeys, but the biggest disappointment was to learn that we could not go off track to get a closer sighting of the lions - that privilege was only for those who paid $150 a day to do so. We have been on numerous safaris in other countries and have never encountered this.
A sensational experience
This place is a must see, it really is a most beautiful part of the world.We did the Golden Monkey Tour which was fantastic & then we saw the beautiful Gorillas of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.This was simply amazing.My husband & I saw the Gorillas 24 years ago & this time we bought our children to see these most amazing creatures.Our guides were so knowledgeable & helpful,simply amazing.It was so nice to see this beautiful country again.
We were very surpised about Uganda. We did not expected such a wide wildlife. The people are very friendliy and we felt us warmly welcome .

made me glad i was there to experience another life of beauty and authenticity
Our trip was much more than gorilla trekking (which was awesome.) Traveling the roads of Uganda and Rwanda with our guide (Tolbert G), seeing miles of villages, animals and daily life was truly a "spiritual" experience in that life is lived in culture, and US culture is driven much differently. Without American "comforts" and physical abundance, life seems refreshing and honest. I loved it there.
