“The Best Experience Ever”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Having recently gone to Uganda to hike thru South West Uganda culminating in a Gorilla Trek, I have to say there is no better group to plan your trip with than Nkuringo Walking Safari's. From booking to the final minute we were treated like precious packages!

Ultimately professional and well trained the guides were fun, informative and patient, accomodations were comfortable and clean, and the food was great.

There is so much to do in Uganda and we could have spent another week with Nkuringo to fit it all in, so ask their advice upfront on what they recommend.

This was a worldclass experience, run by a worldclass tour company.

“Gorilla trekking - absolutely fantastic!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

We spent a week in Uganda travelling around but the highlight was the gorilla trekking in the Impenetrable Forest. Stunning scenery and when you finally come across the gorillas in their wild habitat it was amazing. The trek was about two hours into the forest and in places it was quite tough going (I'm a pretty average middle-aged guy when it comes to fitness and although it was tough it was definitely doable!). The whole trip was organised by Msafiri and I'd thoroughly recommend them. They looked after us all the way and it really was a fantastic holiday.

“Beyond my imagination”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

My holiday was made beyond my imagination during my Easter hoildays. I travelled to East Africa and my safari was put together by a local travel agency Abba international tours and travel. I would recommend them for any one travelling to East Africa, I did a 3 days safari but all went beyond just the money spent. The beautiful eviroment and the gorillas were owesome.
You should visit East Africa.

Reviewed March 28, 2012

The dream was realized on the sight of the mountain Gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable national park. It is a total experience of the nature with the huge animals almost looking like you at your side

The trip was perfect. Exciting travel to arrive at the camp. The camp was a well maintained, beautiful lodge environment. The meals were great! The "tents" were first class.

The staff was attentive to our needs, and the food was amazing.

We were able to find the gorillas after hiking for an hour. Then we spent the next hours watching them and taking photos. Words can explain.

I can't thank Simon Gluckman of Intrepid Expeditions enough for arranging my amazing adventure! simon@intrepidexpeditions.com
