1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The gorillas and chimps of course. But also meeting the people of Uganda, learning about the country and seeing lots of other animals and birds.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

You could take internal flights however moving around by road lets you see and experience the country and people. If at all possible take 2 gorilla treks (we had a days rest between which enabled us to visit the local community). 2 treks gets you to see 2 families and also provides contingency if for some reason you can't make one of the treks - illness, injury etc. Also do the gorilla treks at the end of your itinerary not the beginning to give time to just to the heat and humidity. It can be a tough hike but the porters will do everything they can to get you there.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - using the company that Responsible Travel put using contact with mean that our 'tourist dollars' got down to the local people and to conservation authorities.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

An excellent trip we highly recommend it.

A female gorilla rushing by me and brushing my leg in Bwindi National Park

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Plan for giving lots and lots of gratuities. make sure you have loads of new USD5 bills--small bills make it a lot more flexible in giving tips.

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The recommendations and itinerary that was prepared by Kevin Nicholson was spot on.
