Quite a... More

We spent last week on safari with Gatatu and had a fantastic time. Our guide, Jasper, was excellent, punctual, efficient, friendly and knowledgable. There were many highlights, notably the chimp habituation and, of course the gorilla trek. I would advise those over 50 to ensure they go on one of the short treks and have a porter to carry bags...
