The first trip was to Bwindi to see the mountain gorillas. Jackson was the driver for this and he was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and was a joy to talk to during the journey and I highly recommend him. Edison and Bamboo Ecotours took care of the gorilla permit and everything was completely ready upon my arrival to Bwindi.

Reviews From Our Previous Guests
Quick response on my emails and questions, detailed and useful information and comprehensive prices. I can highly recommend this company to everyone who wants to explore the best of Uganda.
Most companies seem to just have a single driver/guide – I really liked that for this type of longer tour we had a driver and a guide. The driving was very difficult and it was nice that we could ask questions without disturbing our driver, but they also worked as a great team. Really liked that setup.
Edison, the owner, is a trustworthy and very reliable person. He responded quickly to all my emails and queries regarding transportation to Bwindi Park (Gorilla Treks). Fred, a tour guide, and Joseph, the driver, were very helpful and client-focused. Without any hesitation, I highly recommend Bamboo Ecotours for all their offered tours or customized activities. Excellent value for money!
Unfortunately, we had to cancel the entire trip due to travel and health issues. The team (Edison) was perfect and prompt in responding and processing our requests. We will most definitely select this company when we rebook!
