CHAU's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“We are a small group of 8 people. Everyone has a window seat.Tour leader Warra is a very nice guy, care for everyone health, especially in dealing with food preparation, gloves are required to put on. A bottle of sterilize fluid is always in the truck. Many snacks provided and excellent cooking

Highlight is Karijini NP. Warra is our guide, driver and also as

Is this trip right for you:
  • Trekking to find the gorillas can be a challenging and long hike.
  • You will spend only one hour with the gorillas. There is an option to pre-purchase another gorilla permit to visit the gorillas for a second time on Day 3. However this will result in an altered itinerary. Lake Mburo will be replaced with an additional night in Bwindi.
  • Day 4 is a long travel day as you head back to Kampala.
  • This is one of our Short Breaks and is slightly different to our group tours. There is no group leader but rather a local guide with the idea being that you maintain a level of independence during down time. You'll most likely travel on a join-in basis, which means you may or may not be joined by others for activities and transportation, depending on demand.
