Despite the mist and rain (rainy season), it was a magical experience. The ranger was encouraging and helpful and she and the trackers maximised our views for the hour we had with the golden monkeys. We were amazed by the bamboo forest.

We spent a day here on the Batwa Trail learning about life in the forest for the Pygmy people before they were relocated to create the gorilla preserve. The four Batwa men who led our hike thru the forest demonstrated the many skills it took to live off the land. The Wildlife Authority ranger did a great job interpreting for... More

Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is probably the smallest of the National Parks in Uganda, but has a lot of activities!

This was a great experience. The trek was very well organised. We got lucky and only had to hike about 30 min through the forest until we found the gorillas. We saw 9 out of 10 family members, and some of them came within arms reach to our group. The rangers and trackers were very knowledgable and professional, and made... More

We had a great time tracking gorillas in Mgahinga in April 2014. It was a little rainy, but the rangers were great ... many of the gorillas came out to eat and relax ... and I would definitely go back for more!

A group of seven of us hiked Mt. Sabyinyo on a Saturday. The trail up is definitely for those with strong legs--be prepared for lots of vertical climbing--and the mud can be pretty extensive in some of the lower sections. The views from the top are spectacular and unreal, assuming there are not any clouds. My only caution would be... More

One of the greatest hikes I've ever done... culminates at a peak bordered by and with views of Rwanda, Uganda and the DRC. Spectacular.
