After seeing a wild chimpanzee family group in Kibale National Forest, the gentle mountain gorillas of Bwindi had a hint of very quiet drama at best. Maybe the mountain gorillas are more civilized than the gorillas. It was very interesting that we were allowed to...More
We spent 7 days in Uganda and did the Chimpanzee Trek and the Gorilla Trek. We also crossed over to Rwanda to do the Gorilla Trek there. In Uganda, they have low season for permits so we paid a reduced price of $450 per person....More
