The 3 Day Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour is a magical journey into the isolated jungles of  East Africa, promising you an experience like no other. Sitting among a family of wild mountain gorillas in the deep misty jungle of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is utterly magical; nothing can ever prepare you for such an experience – their sheer beauty, brawn and soulful brown eyes, their astonishingly human-like expressions or their extraordinarily gentle demeanour. One hour with these gentle creatures – 60 minutes, is all it takes to change your whole life’s experience. This Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour is a budget safari that is designed to allow every traveller have a chance at spending time with the endangered mountain gorillas.

The entire trip was planned via email communications with Chris. His response time to my questions was usually in the same day. This was a 4-day gorilla trek- they took care of everything from pick-up, transportation, lodging, food, etc. My guide was Tyson, and he was excellent.
