If your tour leader is Often Konzuro then you're in for a great time - he's absolutely lovely and his knowledge and passion for the 3 countries is amazing. We had 14 in our group and we all bonded immediately which is important because you are together either on the truck or in camp for a long time. The wild camping is brilliant but be prepared for very cold temperatures at night - we took a lightweight sleeping bag and had to buy extra blankets! The food is plentiful and the staff do a great job of providing you with 3 good meals each day; some if it is pretty basic but it was all good. Helping out 'in the kitchen' is a good way to bond with your fellow travellers - always plenty of washing up to do! There are plenty of supermarket stops so stock up on snacks, beer & wine of course and if you are veggie ... cheese. The trek to the gorilla's was superb and it wasn't too long. We went to the Ugenda group and it took no more than 2 hours. A steep-ish climb but plenty of stops on the way up and a porter is a good idea - he'lll carry your rucksack, water etc for $10 USD. Wear long sleeves because the nettles sting like hell and don't forget your gardening gloves - they are a must.
Jinga was good but if you are staying at 'Adrift' camp, they are a bit heavy on the selling of the adrenalin sports - don't feel pressured into buying if you don't want to ... we opted for the horseriding by the Nile which was great value for money (about the equivalent of around £20 from memory) and we went through some lovely little villages and had a nice relaxing day which you'll need after some very long days on the truck.
Anything you want to ask, i'll be happy to help. So very jealous .... i'd book it again tomorrow if I could!
