Julius and Angie planned everything out beforehand and answered every question before we asked it. Then we just sat back and let the team do the rest. We saw every animal, bird, and insect in existence and stayed at some fairytale locations with views that defied description.
It has been a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience to view some of the rare mountain gorillas and humans’ closest living relatives, the chimpanzees, in their natural habitat and look them in the eyes.
In every regard, it was flawless. John was undoubtedly the best tour guide I have ever had the pleasure of travelling with. The entire safari, John humored and entertained us, sharing with us his many stories about life in Uganda.
