    "My first trip to Uganda and Rwanda was with All Gorilla Trips. Jane put together a great itinerary for us that allowed us to see a wide array of parks. Our driver, Fred, did a fabulous job on the very difficult roads, especially the one leading to Bwindi. We enjoyed both countries and plan to return."

    "Seeing the mountain gorillas has been on my list of things to do for so many years, and, after six years of saving up, I was finally ready to do it! I reached out to over 20 tour operators and was impressed with how many were quick to respond. Jane, however, went above and beyond just responding. She worked with me to get me into the smaller, less-crowded lodges (a must for me) and to help me see Kidepo Valley when many tour operators told me there were no flights. She was always quick to reply and worked with me through every revision. I especially like how she placed us in Kasenyi Safari Camp when we were in QENP. It was the highlight of my safari, from the game drives to the isolated cabins on the dry soda lake, to the fabulous meals."

    "All Gorillas Trips was our tour operator. They are efficient, very friendly and coordinated in their activities. Our whole trip from start to finish was well taken care off and comfortable. Barring a small incident at one of the Lodges (Not Gorillas Trips fault), everything was fine and the whole experience for us was fascinating and rewarding. Jane in the office and Fred our driver, guide, and the friends were truly awesome. Very caring and attentive to the smallest need and made sure we lacked nothing during the whole journey through Uganda and Rwanda. Hope to do it again sometimes. And most certainly recommend their services to the like-minded intrepid traveler. Kudos to them!"
