First of all the accom is simple but clean & we had no issues with our chalet (Mahogany). We were welcomed & well looked after. The food was good, my steak was delicious. The trekking was great. Chimps move faster than the Gorillas so are harder to trek & unfortunately that also makes them harder to photograph. Not the cheapest trip you'll do in Uganda but well worth it.
However where they really excelled themselves was after we had left. About 20km from the lodge & further into the NP we suffered a blown tyre & sheared damper on the rear axle of our car. Mobile single was almost non-existent but we did manage to get a text message to a friend who rang Budongo who immediately sent two of their staff to rescue us. Once we'd limped the car back to the lodge they organised a mechanic to come & fix it.
Great service when we weren't actually their problem any longer, thanks guys.
