Gorilla Expeditions?

Hello all,

Has anyone used the following tour company for gorilla tracking in Rwanda: Gorilla Expeditions? I have been corresponding with a guy called Paul, who has been very helpful. Just wondering if anyone has any personal experiences?

Have just come back from Rwanda and want to let everyone know about Paul and his wonderful safari company GORILLA EXPEDITIONS (www.gorillaexpeditions.com). We contacted him after reading the some of reviews that were posted on this site. We e-mailed him with our requests and he was happy to give us whatever we wanted. When we arrived in Kigali(Rwanda), he sent a driver to meet us at our hotel and took us to his office. There we discussed our itinerary and paid our deposit. He usually asks for a deposit before departure and then balance on arrival, but we did not want to pay through a bank, so we paid when we arrived. He gave us his opinions about the various lodges available and told us that we could change from our original booking if we wanted. Our son had been unwell and he was prepared for us to cancel at last minute if he was still ill.

I would definitely go with him again - fantastic service and a better price that the tour operators.

Make sure you go with the right Paul.

Thanks again Paul.

Gorilla trekking feedback with Gorilla expeditions

I've written this recommendation to share with other internet users.

"it was july 2012 when I had my vacation to uganda , I used a local travel agency here in Australia through Clifton from Travel managers to arrange my vacation to Uganda, it was by surprise that Clifton chose /subcontracted to work with a local company based in uganda called Gorilla expeditions it was a 8 days trip highlighting gorilla and chimp trekking +wildlife , jackson was my guide sure I had a wonderful guide on my tour of Uganda, he took me off the beaten track and went out of his way when I wanted to visit a church and school friends in Australia wanted me to do. I met his Mum and we had the best time, I was on the tour just he and me. It was very special and we have remained friends and keep in touch. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants to tour Uganada....and, I saw the gorillas. I will return to do another tour or if not to visit Jacakson as I now have a World Vision child in the north of Uganda (kitgum) who I would like to visit. We saw so much in the week I was there and wonderful game in Queen Elizabeth National Park, my guide spotted the lion and cubs and we watched till night fall, we had the whole spectacle on our own, it was magic. Loved Murchison Falls and the area, the beautiful countryside where we went into the villages and met lots of locals, a memorable holiday - which was all due to gorilla expeditions. In case any one else is interested, I have attached to link to his company’s website: www.gorillaexpeditions.com ."
