I feel so privileged to have had this experience! It really was a dream come true. I organised the trip myself, saving quite a bit as could not really afford to book with a company. I flew into Entebbe, stayed one night and then got a taxi to Kampala and a public bus to Kabale. From there I went to Bunyoni Overland Resort, which was wonderful. Ian from Bunyoni organised my permit and transport to Bwindi. It was a tough day and the walking was hot and tiring, but the overall experience was beyond my expectations. I then took the Post bus back to Kampala (which was far better than the bus I took there!). In Bwindi I was lucky to have a wonderful lady guide who was calm, positive and informative. It was an incredible experience and will remain close to my heart forever, as will the feeling of desperate helplessness that goes with the realisation that the beautiful family I visited with for an hour are one of 8 families surviving in a mere 330 square km area
