Very well organised and didn't feel too touristy or rushed. Recommend you take a porter $15 min each as it puts money into the community and once you start climbing you realise these boys earn their cash - they are rota's so all porters get...More

We were lucky enough to get within 5m of 3 silverbacks. The guide mentioned to us that there is talk of raising the permit cost to $1000 in 2017, so if you're considering doing the trek perhaps book now while it is still $600. Just...More

Also...the price at low season is considerably less. It is challenging to get from either Entebbe or Kampala to Bwindi if you don't know your way around, or aren't willing to risk an adventure. The public transportation... More
