Trip rating: Excellent
"A really amazing experience at Greystoke, and a fun time at Kichaka sadly hampered by the weather, but Moli and the location stood out here as making it a great place to visit."

"Greystoke Mahale review"

4 nights Arrived 6 Feb 2020
"Greystoke was incredible and exceeded all expectations. The location and camp couldnt be more idyllic, the food was fantastic, the staff couldnt have done more for us, and the managers made us feel totally at home.

The Chimpanzees really were the stars of Greystoke, and the amazing guide (Matteus) bought the whole thing to life with the incredible history and insights into the group, and individuals within the group. We were lucky to see them on all 3 days, all in very different situations and the experience was phenomenal.

The lake provided the perfect swimming pool after the trek through the forest.

I really couldn't rate this place high enough and wouldn't fault any aspect of it, and feel immensely lucky to have been able to go there !"

"Kichaka Expeditions review"

4 nights Arrived 10 Feb 2020
"Kichaka is in a fantastic location but sadly we went at a terrible time ... the heavens opened, getting there was hard, and getting back to the airstrip was an adventure in itself.

Moli is a great character and really fun to spend time with. He is a fountain of knowledge on so many different subjects, and despite not seeing much on walks he made them fun and interesting. I feel terrible putting the activities as average as I think this was purely down to weather which is obviously beyond anyones control. We desperately wanted to walk with elephants but sadly there were none to be seen. Feet were permanently wet from walking through effectively swamp.

We got to know his team pretty well and had a lot of fun with them helping to repair roads etc .. they were great and remained upbeat at all times. Game viewing was sadly limited and I suspect this was purely down to the weather.

Moli moved mountains to get us back to the airstrip which at one point looked like an impossible task, with roads washed away, we are very grateful to him for all his efforts. I suspect this would be a fantastic experience in dry season, but we still certainly had a real adventure there, and was very different to any other experience we have had in Africa !"
