Uganda Safari Review – Churchill Safaris Offered a Wonderful Experience

During our Uganda safari, we decided to do something new for us, and that was to take a private tour.

We had traveled Africa in the past both solo and on low-budget group tours, but we never were able to take a high-end safari company with a private and customized itinerary.

In Uganda we finally made this a reality, and did so with a company called Churchill Safaris- a popular organization that offers fully customized tours in central and southern Africa.

In this one, we wanted to share a bit more as to what the experience was like!

Everything You Need to Know for Mountain Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

For the longest time, Angie had mountain gorilla trekking in Uganda on her bucket list, and in early 2019 we finally made that dream a reality with our trip to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

When visiting, we really weren't sure what to expect.

We heard the hike could be easy, moderately challenging, or terrible. We heard the roads are okay and awful. And we have heard mixed feelings on the experience overall as well in terms of whether or not it is worth the $600 per person fee ($700 starting July 2020) to spend an hour with the gorillas.

Not being deterred, we did it anyway and had a fabulous time. To help share some of the information we learned about the experience, this guide was born!
