"An experience that should be on eveyones buck"

Based at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge on 28 Jul 2016
"What an amazing experience! The trek up the mountain is not the easiest but well worth it.

A tip to those who are going to do this trek - hire a porter. The lads were well worth the money." Read more about this whole safari

"Umubano and Sabyinyo Groups"

Based at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge on 1 Jan 2010
"Two days of gorilla trekking more than made up for this missed golden monkey day. Visited Umubano and Sabyinyo groups with relatively easy hikes and good weather. Very inspiring event that had Pam in tears as she has wanted to have this experience since middle school and thought extinction due to man's conflicts would eliminate any chance. Saw 9 of the first goup and 7 of the latter including Guhonda the largest of Rwanda's silverbacks and a baby in each group." Read more about this whole safari

"No title necessary ........"

Based at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge on 18 Sep 2007
"We did two days of gorilla tracking. On day one we visited the Sabinyo group and on day two, Susa. It is, as the guide book says, a peerless experience. I was very worried about the hiking involved but actually we (despite being mid forties, relativley sedentary lifestyle etc etc) managed it fine and with seeemingly less problems than our younger fitter looking companions. This I put down to (i) having by this stage in our trip been at altitude for some time and having completed trecks to see chimps and golden monkeys (ii) hiring a porter - cameras, water, coats, lunch make for a bulky heavy backpack and clambering under fallen bamboo poles in mud with a backpack is no joke (and the porters need their job!) (ii) using two sticks (we took our own but the guides also provide these)- we slid about in the mud much less than those balancing on one!" Read more about this whole safari
