“Wow! This trip was absolutely amazing. We were so lucky to see all of the animals, including the big 6. (Lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros, cape buffalo and gorilla.) There were plenty of sightings of elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, various antelopes and heaps of different monkeys. My absolute highlight was the trek to see the chimpanzees. These apes have such personality and we saw them playing, eating and it seemed as though they were having an absolute ball! The gorillas were also another highlight, and we were extremely lucky with the weather and not having to trek very far through the jungle. We were also very privileged to see 1 of the 25 tree climbing lions that live in the Queen Elizabeth National Park. The food was delicious and the accommodation, which located in some gorgeous settings, was always different (ranging from permanent tent sites to cabins to hotels and resort). Really this trip was an experience not to be missed.”
