Gorilla and Chimp Trekking Testimonials
This trip offers a unique opportunity for a very small group of people to go escorted gorilla and chimp trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable forest of Uganda.
No other wildlife encounter in Africa matches the astounding experience of spending time face-to-face with wild gorillas. Gorillas are a species are on the brink of extinction and treks are a highly restricted activity. Encountering our distant cousins in mist-draped forests of Bwindi’s impenetrable forest is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Our professional guide and trackers lead us into the forest’s secret paths, looking for a habituated gorilla family. Once found, we will approach the gorillas quietly and settle down to observe them from between 7 and 10m away. Witnessing and photographing gorillas is a truly profound experience and one of the reasons that gorilla trekking is such a life changing encounter
After the gorilla treks we travel further north for the chimps. On the way we pass through Queen Elizabeth National Park and cross the equator. On the way we have a wonderful opportunity to explore the Kazinga channel by boat to get some unique and amazing photos of water birds and lake side wildlife.
We will travel on again staying in a small beautiful lodge nestled between two volcano lakes before setting off to trek chimps.
On our way back to Entebbe we will explore the local marshes by boat looking for the amazing shoebill stork which whilst rare can often be found in this area.
Each combined trip will be limited to a maximum of 4 people and is often less. We’ll be staying at small and extremely comfortable classic camp safari lodges and bespoke gorilla lodges in Uganda.

Diana Gamble – After Gorilla Safari
The opportunity of a lifetime, not to be missed. When we arrived in Rwanda I felt ashamed not to have studied its history more thoroughly and, after our emotional visit to the Genocide Memorial, felt humble and shocked by what had happened there so recently (1994). However, our journey up to the northern hills gave me an insight into the country and the happy, smiling people around. Our treks through the forest to see the Mountain Gorillas were exceptional and spending time with a gorilla family on each occasion was sensational. Watching the huge silverback moving his family along, seeing the teenagers climbing trees and playing, or the babies with their mothers was unique. I believe I have images of them all of which I am quite proud and which will be a permanent reminder of an incredible trip.
