Just to let you know we’re back and have had the most amazing time! Still can’t quite believe all we’ve seen, done and experienced! Far too much to mention now but I just wanted to thank you for all your help and sensible advice -everything went perfectly.
The gorilla trek was beyond amazing. We were so lucky and only had to trek for about an hour before our amazing gorilla encounter. Just unbelievable! Being in such close proximity to those amazing, gentle giants is surreal. Walking back down the mountain after our experience was a piece of cake – we were all walking on air!
Our stay at the wonderful Engagi Lodge was just the icing on the cake. Outstanding lodge, amazing location, delicious food and wonderfully friendly staff. It was the staff at the lodge who ‘encouraged’ us to use a porter and provided us, free of charge, with a stick for the trek – both of which we definitely needed!!
The whole trip – chimp trekking, the lodges, food, our driver/guide (Robert), lions, elephants, aardvarks, bush babies, horse riding, night safari (just the things I can remember off the top of my head!) – was outstanding! We returned home exhausted but exhilarated! We still haven’t come back down to earth!!!
