I had an amazing time with Geckos. The tour leader Peter, was informative and fun. The driver and chef was accommodating and hilarious! The Geckos team really made us feel like family. It really was the trip of a lifetime. The gorillas, white water rafting, game drives, shopping and sleeping to the sound of lions are all just a few of the highlights.

The highlight of our trip was most definitely the mountain gorillas in Rwanda, but we also enjoyed all the animals we saw in the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and our boat trip on the Kazinga Channel. We felt very safe on some fairly rough roads with our driver, and the food on the tour was absolutely fantastic.

Uganda’s the kind of place that will bring a tear to your eye. Partly because of the hard work trekking to see gorillas, but mostly because of the gorillas themselves.
It’s pretty much impossible to prepare yourself for the utter amazingness of sitting in a jungle clearing watching a big gorilla ignore an annoying younger gorilla.
Another thing that might make you a bit teary is the landscape. Uganda is, in two words, really nice. There are the misty mountains of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Lake Victoria and its chimp-covered island and Kampala, which after years of abuse is headed back to being ‘The Pearl of Africa’. Uganda: amazing stuff guaranteed, tissues optional.
