We have been in operation since 2005. We delight in providing the most affordable luxury, mid-range and low budget safaris & tour packages to individuals and small groups/ families without any discrimination. Our major purpose is that as many as possible will visit and enjoy the unique beauty of Uganda and Rwanda with a professional and knowledgeable tour guide, through a fast, honest and professional booking service, at the best affordable price possible. We emphasize giving plenty of quality relevant information about Uganda and Rwanda both before and after the tour. Although we delight in earning a profit from our our work, this is not our main driver. We will be most glad when at the end of your visit you feel you want to stay longer than planned and we will be very sad when for any reason (both our own or other factors' making), you fail to make it for your safari in Uganda and Rwanda. So, talk to us today! We will most likely be of more help than you expect - be it gorilla tracking safaris, Rwanda wildlife and game viewing safaris, chimpanzee tracking, and bird-watching packaged tours, culture, white-water rafting, mountain climbing, name it. « less

I completed a gorilla trek with Gorillas and Wildlife Safaris in July 2014. The trip was fantastic. They arrived at my hotel early to pick me up and I was well taken care of for the entire trip. The gorilla trek itself is fantastic - you spend an hour with them in their own natural habitat, just watching them live... More

In August 2014 I undertook a 5-day gorilla safari in Uganda and Rwanda with Gorillas and Wildlife Safaris of Kampala, Uganda. I organised this over the Internet and I had an initial degree of trepidation about sending money to a company where I had never met the people involved. I needn't have worried and I found this company very ethical... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time with Hamisi as our driver on our gorilla track. He was a wonderful driver and guide through Uganda en route to Bwindi. We had a great experience overall with a great stay for 2 nights with great food and company. Seeing the gorillas was a once in a lifetime experience!

Not only did we get within feet of Gorillas, we enjoyed great lodging, great travel, and great food. The journey towards Bwindi took us through 2 national parks and we saw zebras, baboons, elephants, monkeys, a cobra, and a lion sleeping in a tree. An outstanding outfit that I will absolutely use again! Also they were flexible with us and... More

Calah had organised me a 3 day trip from Entebbe to Bwindi to trek for mountain gorillas. We were picked up as dropped off in Entebbe by our guide and felt really looked after by him throughout. The vehicle was comfortable and cleaned at every opportunity (the roads can get a bit dusty). The long drive (10 hours) to bwindi... More

We experienced an absolute professional service from Gorillas and Wildlife Safaris. Besides the fact, that the time spent with the Gorillas was absolutely amazing and the scenery at Bwindi perfect we also loved the stay at Silver Back Lodge which we can highly recommend. Beautiful view, extremely helpful and friendly staff and an exellent cook! Moreover we were impressed by... More

It should make anyone nervous to wire money to a Ugandan company known only by their internet presence. I am so glad we took the chance. This company responded quickly to all our queries during the planning process, and once we had settled on the 3-day budget gorilla safari, they quickly provided receipts for our permits. We were picked up... More

I went through Ivan and Gaster just to purchases gorilla permits as I was planning the rest of the trip myself. Even though you normally have to head up to Kampala to pick them up, they arranged for me to get them in Kabale which was a great help!

Ivan at GWS planned a great safari for us -- 8 days and 7 nights. Everything was well planned and organized -- which we appreciated! And, we highly recommend Enos Mugisha Salongo as a driver! Not only is he an excellent driver with a very solid car, he is very personable and knowledgable. He is willing to go the "extra... More

The experience/meeting with the gorillas was amazing!! The camp en food was good. Only the driver put us in a group with 3 old people and we told him that we like to hike..... So it was a very short and slow hike. The way back we got a packed lunch (to less) without break..... The lunchstop at the first... More

Thanks so much for reviewing us, by this we leave and have made great improvements. We really value your input. Glad also that you had a great trip, and really liked everything. For gorilla groups, it's an arrangement in the hands of the Uganda Wildlife Authority and no one else outside UWA can determine a gorilla group especially if you... More
