RECAP & RAVING REVIEWS
By Ferenc Kis
Guests of the 2010 East Africa Photo Safari and Uganda Mountain Gorilla extension, returned home safe and sound, packed with several once-in-a-lifetime experiences in their hearts, and thousands of images on their hard-drives. Luck was on our side in Bwindi Impenetrable forest, as the gentle giants that appear from the mists were less than a 30 minute hike each day from our starting point, and continued to sit and forage in front of us, as though that had been waiting for us to join them for tea. As one guest stated...
"...both Birgit and myself got ‘blessed’ by two Gorillas wanting to be in touch with us ..... what an experience!!!"

"I am writing to convey to you our thanks and appreciation for a wonderful experience on this safari. The group dynamics were great and we all very much enjoyed each others' company. Ferenc was an absolutely terrific tour leader. His warm and jovial personality kept us in good humor throughout the safari. He did a marvelous job in coordinating our schedule and accommodations and making sure all of our needs were satisfied. Truly an outstanding job."
