Recommended for tracking Gorillas, this travel company not only packages tracking, but African safaris including game viewing in different game parks in Uganda, including Murchison Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, but mostly specializes in tacking travelers to track the giant Mountain gorillas.

APS provided us with an interesting tour in Uganda combining safaris, landscapes, sightseeing and visits to cities customized to our specific requests. Our guide was a very skilled river, and we felt safe and secure all the way round in Uganda.
