Paul B

October 13th, 2015

Finally got some time to sit down and let you know how it went. Arrived in Entebbe International Airport and after clearing customs we were met by our host Paul and taken right to the Protea Hotel. Thank you for the nice bottle of wine waiting for us. 

We awoke and flew to Kibale where were met by Petrus from Volcanoes Safaris. We were surprised to see we were the only ones scheduled.  Petrus was absolutely wonderful. He made the trip for us. His warm personality and hearty laugh were more than we could have expected.  Please pass along to them how great we thought he did. 

The staff at all three lodges were warm and welcoming with great food and service. We met Aubrey (owner) at Ndali and his two dogs were our constant companions.  The managers (Gilbert at Ndali, George at Kyambura and Joselyn at Bwindi were always checking to make sure we were satisfied.  Really liked the way the chefs would touch base to see what you would like for dinner and make accommodations for different tastes. 


The chimp and gorilla treks were certainly the highlight of the safari but we also enjoyed the cruise and game treks as well.  Have to admit the climb at Bwindi is everything we were warned about and thank goodness we found then a little over two hours up.  Not sure I could have gone on too much longer!! The complimentary massage was very needed when back at the lodge!


Thanks again Beth
