Simone and Bret, Australia

Our guide Andy was simply wonderful. By the time we reached the lodge we were already in love with Uganda and its people, and he’d even stopped a number of times along the way so we could meet passers-by, take photos, and even visit a local hospital. He was very engaging and we learned a lot about Uganda and its history and people by the time we left. 

The Mountain Gorilla Lodge was also an excellent choice. Very comfortable, idyllic lodges and excellent service – they also arranged for us to go on the local “community walk” run by a local foundation.

We had come to Uganda to see the gorillas for just 1 hour, but left the country feeling like we’d gained so much more – and should’ve stayed much longer and seen more.
