My Friend and I booked with Gorillas and Wildlife Safaris Ltd to do a 5 day chimp and gorilla trek in Bwindi and Kibale. I could not fault this customized tour at all. I was initially a little apprehensive about booking a tour off the internet from back home considering how much cheaper it was than what other companies offered but my friend had already booked it so I was just hoping that we were going to get value for money. And we did. We were picked up by Robert and went straight to the Office in Kampala where we met Ivan and handed over the rest of our money. The van we were transported in was VERY comfortable considering we had some long driving days. We were able to stretch out and recline the seats a little, plus it had air con. Robert was very good to us, he drove safely and would stop if he saw animals we might like to see - zebras and monkeys etc and really exceeded his job as a driver. The accommodation was really good - we said we wanted cheap accommodation but no camping and we stayed at Ruhija Gorilla Friends Resort and Campsite (we stayed in a tent but it had a proper bed and tin roof over us and was very comfortable) and also at Chimpanzee Forest Guesthouse which was really lovely to stay at. The gorillas and chimps were amazing to see, definitely once in a lifetime and worth the trek (we were lucky enough to only trek for ~1 hour). Wear good shoes for the trek as the ground is wet and there is quite a bit of uphill - the stick they give you is handy! As two female travellers travelling alone and being the only ones staying at the accommodation at times we felt really safe. I would definitely recommend this tour company to anyone and would most certainly use them again if I were to go back, the price is extremely reasonable given the itinerary. Can't recommend highly enough! Book with them :)
