My family spent three days in July 2011 at Nkuringo Gorilla Camp as part of a special ten-day excursion set up by Nkuringo Walking Safaris.
This safari, starting in Kibale Forest National Park, proceeded southwestward, taking in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Buhoma, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Lake Mutanda, Mgahinga, and finishing in Rwanda. This one-way adventure along the westernmost part of Uganda was seamlessly put together by proprietor Robert Brierley; the result was a masterpiece tailored to our specific needs. It included chimpanzee/gorilla/golden monkey tracking, lots of hiking through some of the most beautiful scenery you can imagine, canoeing, sightseeing by 4WD, and several safaris. We were most impressed by the staff who helped us along our way - this is a thoroughly professional outfit. I highly recommend Nkuringo for anybody looking for a unique adventure in a stunningly beautiful place.
We stayed in the luxurious cottages at the Gorilla Camp and were treated to stunning 360 degree views from the deck that included Bwindi, DRC rift valley, and Virunga volcanoes. You need to see this yourself to believe it. The food was probably the best we had during our entire holiday, and the high level of personal service was much appreciated. We hope to return some day! This is a special place.
