“Mountain gorilla tracking in Bwindi rain forest” - FHauser84

Mountain gorilla tracking in Uganda

Views: 543 Visited: Dec 2016 Reviewed: May 08, 2017

Initially, my girlfriend and I - we both work with a NGO in Kampala - wanted to simply see mountain gorillas before leaving the country. Instinct Safaris was recommended to us by friends and we decided to approach their office, directly. We also had their business card and flyer in our office.

After two meetings at their location, our itinerary/travel plan was complete and we were ready to go. I am not going into detail about the gorilla track in Bwindi, which was truly breathtaking and the sole purpose of our booking, as I would like to talk about the company more. Our guide and driver Raban's service was exceptional and in all situations - including traffic jam on the main road and resulting late arrival at a lodge outside the forest - we felt in safe hands. Our car was an extended Toyota Land Cruiser with numerous safari modifications, such as an pop roof at the top and larger windows than the usual model. Travel times were relatively long with about 9 hours from Kampala to our lodge near the rain forest. Therefore, it was great to have the comfortable seats and leg space provided in the vehicle. We are planning to come back to Uganda within the year and plan to go see Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls. My girlfriend and I are already pretty sure who to go with :)
