Grateful trip in Bwindi

Written by: Lea Taylor on 02 June 2020

I visited Bwindi National Park in Uganda. The lodge was good or excellent quality. Lodge staff were dependably helpful and efficient. The wildlife was very exceptional and surpassed our expectations. The safari van was very good and comfortable and our driver Charles was great. Our guide was very efficient and had excellent knowledge of Uganda wildlife.
