This trip was so much better than expected there were so many highlights, the gorrillas, the kids in Uganda, all the wildlife in the serengeti, and the group leaders were fantastic and really made the trip special.
- What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Being so close to the Gorrillas is an experience you will never forget, it was both moving and scary at the same time and you felt totally priviledged to be there, in fact you felt like the ones being watched!!
We were also really lucky to have met some amazing children in Uganda that we intend to keep in contact with, they really are an inspiration, and make you feel so humble. It is amazing that they can be so happy with so little.
- What did you think of your group leader?
Our group leader was fantastic in fact all 3 were, the driver, leader and the cook. They all made the trip extra special and worked so hard for us.
If you ever have the oppurtunity to travel with Emias, Mike or Bachi (wish I knew there surnames!!) go for it they are all fantastic. Bachi's cooking deserves a medal!!
- Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
As this trip was changed slightly because of the troubles in Kenya we did have a couple more long days travelling so be prepared for that, although the vehicles are very sociable so the time goes very quickly.
There are alot of early mornings but they are worth it!!
you only get 1 hour with gorrillas so don't waist all the time taking photos stand back and watch them.
Finally don't be shy about having to go to the loo in the bush it is quite ofter nicer that the amenities!!
- Is there anything else you would like to add?
This trip was fantastic and we have not stopped raving about it, it was also the first time my husband and I have been on any kind of organised trip, but this was certainly the best way to travel, and you certainly will not be going home feeling like you had waisted any time relaxing every day was a new adventure!!
We are already planning our next trip!!
