9 Reviews on “3 days Safari to Bwindi Gorilla Tracking

  1. We booked a 6 day trip with the tour company Inspire African Safaris through there site. Everything about the trip was amazing. The wildlife and beauty of Uganda was amazing and the hospitality of the people is un-paralleled compared to every place in the world we had ever been. We bought a superzoom camera prior to the trip and it was so worth it. We encountered animals that were close enough we could touch and animals that we were glad weren’t that close. A good camera is a must!

    Nothing can compare to coming face to face with a gorilla and investigating each other from within an arms reach or seeing a pride of lions on the hunt. If you have ever wanted to see Africa, Uganda is the place to go. Food was great too and our guide was the best. Richard Davids was like family by the end of the trip and was so insightful, kind, and patient. We visited 3 Game parks and the hippos in queen elizabeth park were just amazing, so many and playful.
    For any travelers planning a safari to Uganda, don’t risk your safari with unprofessional operators, I recommend this company, the packages on tripadvisor and their site is just amazing. kick restart your adventures with them. highly professional team.

  2. The whole trip exceeded our expectations. Everything worked very well. Our guide spoke very good english, he was capable of answering all our questions, he was very responsible and punctual but most importantly very friendly and easy going so it felt more like travelling with a friend rather than with a guide. The programme was outstanding as well.
    Would recommend

  3. I spent with my boyfriend 2 weeks in Uganda this august: Inspire African Safaris fit the tour to our requests and everything was perfect… also thanks to our guide Richard! Nature in Uganda is amazing!

  4. My brother and I only had a couple of days in Uganda and wanted to get a lot of things in the schedule. Thanks to Inspire African Safaris, it was all possible. They were very accommodating. I am a vegetarian and never had a problem getting something to eat. There was some mix up from the main office about locations on our schedule, but Darius, our wonderful guide went out of his want to correct it and get us where we needed to go. He was very knowledgeable about Africa itself as well as the locations we visited and the animals we saw. It was also evident that he had a lot of experience as other guides from other touring companies kept coming to him for advice. I would say that all in all, Inspire provides reasonably priced tours but what made our trip fantastic was our guide, Darius. Don’t ever lose him!

  5. Everything was excellent. Very good and fast communications with Hedmond, excellent guide (Isaac), all the accommodations very nice and comfortable, very good food and a great and unforgettable experience with gorillas!!

  6. The tour was culturally rich as well as opportunity to be with nature and an abundance of wildlife. We saw lions, gorillas, chimpanzees, zebra, elephants, giraffes, worthogs, water buffalo, birds and so much more. We also had the opportunity of being with the people of Uganda and ventured through several villages including a specific pygmy village where they performed (sang songs and danced) for our group – a wonderful experience learning about the Pygmy people.

  7. I honestly had an amazing and unforgettable vacation in Uganda, and I am glad to tell, that Inspire African Safaris was and is the best choice for Uganda. And I already made recommendations within my family and friends.
    I was a single traveler and made a lot of research by myself prior searching
    for companies, who offered tours like that. So my main purpose were the Mountain gorillas, but for sure, I was happy to have some other activities besides that as well.

    When I made my request, I was super happy of receiving an answer of Richard the same day.
    He never got tired by answering my questions, which made it easy for me to decide. Thank you very much, Richard, for making everything so easy and smooth for me.

    When I landed in Entebbe, I hoped to have an unforgettable journey. And now, since I am back home, i can literally tell – it was really “BEST OF UGANDA”. I had a lot of fun with my driver guide Darius and all the information he provided all the way, on our 1600km we made within those 10 days.

    For sure, there are sometimes long distances to cover, but I never got tired, as the landscape was so beautiful.
    Valleys, so much green, banana and tea plantations. I just loved it, to stare outside the window.

    From national Parks, Rhino Sanctuary, Boat cruises along the Kazinga Channel (where you really see wildlife at it´s best) to the unforgettable experience in the “impenetrable Forest Bwindi” where I visited the silent giants, called mountain gorillas in their natural habit.
    It was unforgettable, and still gives me goosebumps by just thinking of it.

    The market is very competitive…but your journey lives with the driver and information you get.
    This is why I highly recommend Inspire African Safaris, as they will do everything, to make
    your trip an amazing experience and to reach all your expectations and even beyond that.

  8. The Best of Africa Adventure Vacation involves Gorilla&Chimpanzee tracking, Big five tracking and Wilderness horseback to Murchison Falls, Kibale Forest, Queen Elizabeth, Bwindi Forest and Lake Mburo National Parks. It takes you inside of the dense African jungles with the most scenic places, amazing nature created features, abundance of wild life, big apes and numerous bird species

  9. Me and my Friends met this Company online, Richard Prepared for us a 3 day excursion to Bwindi in Western uganda for Gorilla Trekking, I credit him because he gave us discounted Gorilla Permits from 600 dollars to 400 Dollars each. We started Bwindi Forest National Game Park for the adventure,
    While looking for different Families of Gorillas, I was very extremely scared of the Forest, Hearing Sounds of different birds and omnivores Animals, met reptiles on our trekking which added to the experience, We Finally Met the desired family of Gorillas which is almost like me hahhahahaaaaa, This is a story I will tell every year and my only thing is to credit Richard and his Company a 5 Star, If only the Guides were using my language I would Give a 6 Star but the Guide from Entebbe Airport EBB used Audio Communications.
    Despite Richard’s relative Youth, He is very skilled and Loves Uganda.
