Mountain Gorilla Trekking in Uganda - Perfect Trip!

Written on: December 03, 2014   |   I visited in November 2014 I hope that some people can use my review as some sort of guidance when they search for a safari operator for their gorilla hike in Uganda. I travelled with Instinct Safaris, who surprised me with their expertise when planning the trip (by fast and detailed emails and personal phone calls). On the ground, the weather and animals we had/got to see made it easy for me and my wife to love Instinct Safaris and Raban, our guide. I can recommend you to opt in for south Bwindi for gorilla trekking rather than the north. We also did a second track in Mgahinga national park, which is at the border to Rwanda and DRC. This was great, as time with the gorillas is limited to only one hour per track. We had discounted gorilla trekking permits in November.
