7 Day Gorilla and Wildlife tour in Uganda We were a group of 3 and traveled through Uganda for 7 days. Everyone at Deks Safaris and Tours was competent, friendly, and highly responsive and we can only recommend booking the tour with them. Peter our guide and driver was also very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable and the best guide you could imagine. When our luggage arrived two days late at Entebbe airport, he did everything in his power to have someone pick up the luggage at the airport and transport it to a place that was on our route. You could feel blessed in case you get William as your guide. Uganda and Deks Safaris and Tours was just such a great experience that we will never forget!!

However, the dry seasons are often preferred for trekking due to more manageable trail conditions.
