What people are saying about Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
The trip to Bwindi was amazing! We really loved the whole area, we met Batwa Pygmies as well. We hiked for 3 hours and met the gorillas on the top of the moutain. We were super close to them. We loved our guide-Mark, he was amazing,really took care of us. The best tour guide!!!! Its definitely worth the trip.
We are a once in a life time trip with Mark to the Bwindi Forest. Not only was Mark a blast to chat with, he was also punctual, caring, and provided the upmost safety. What a great experience viewing the gorillas and having Mark there to guide our journey!
This excursion is not recommended, to go to the gorillas you spend 13 hours in the car and on top of that the last section are roads, both to go and to return, you lose two days to spend an hour seeing the gorillas.
