Everything taken care of from beginning to end!
5/5

We actually booked our tour in June of 2019 for the August of 2020. As the global pandemic took hold, we rescheduled for Christmas/New Years of 2020, but then that became doubtful. Matoke helped us reschedule around multiple flight cancellations and Covid Testing requirements and were prompt and flawless in their response. Matoke went out of their way to make sure that everything was safely set-up for us from the moment we got to the airport to the moment we departed back to the USA. Every lodge used Covid safety measures far beyond our expectations and we never felt at risk. Our Tour Guide, Musa, also enforced precautions as we went between activities and on Game Drives and Treks. Not only were our expectations met, under difficult situations, they were exceeded.

All of our scheduled activities, which were planned 18 months earlier, were carried out, and a couple of unscheduled ones were added (FLAMINGOS!!). The lodges which were chosen for us were uniformly of high standard while each being unique and special. Matoke's staff was always cheerful in our emails, which, due to the circumstances, were numerous. We can't speak highly enough about our experience!

All super well organised, great tour of great Uganda's south-west area
5/5

A great tour at Christmas 2020 / new-year 2021, when most of the rest of world was under lock down...
All was well organised, and the tour well conceived. The driver / guide was interesting, and most importantly drove very well, be it on the road or during game drives.
I appreciated having been contacted after having booked (and paid our tour) to let me know that, due to a national parks entrance fees discount I had paid too much a s was entitled a refund, I though that was very honest, thanks for this honesty Matoke!
I can only recommend traveling with Matoke in Uganda, all good !

An unforgettable journey tailored by a 5-Star company

My wife and I went on our first ever African safari with Matoke Tours in Uganda in December 2019. Months later, we think about the trip daily! From our wonderful and experienced guide Big Sam, to the awesome accommodations and friendly staff at each lodge, it was the trip of a lifetime. We began our vacation with a visit to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. We traveled from there to Murchison Falls National Park, then to Kibale National Park, then to Queen Elizabeth National Park, to Ishasha, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, and finished at Lake Mburo. When we set out on our trip, we didn't expect to see each and every animal as advertised. However, we did! It was better than we imagined. We saw a 3-month-old rhino, a pride of lions, the "rare" leopard. Our guide helped us spot the elusive leopard on four occasions, how lucky! We observed a bachelor group of elephants making mischief, walked behind a chimp, had a hippo nearly visit our cottage porch, and spent the most magical hour with a gorilla family. We photographed the most beautiful, perfect male lion standing out on a tree branch in Ishasha. We spotted a mother and young leopard on the prowl during the night game drive at Lake Mburo, and more. We certainly felt well cared for, and in good hands. Every detail was carefully thought out and planned for us ahead of time, by our wonderful trip coordinator Pascqa Lorna, so that we never worried about anything. As for Big Sam, he's truly what made our 12 day journey so fulfilling. I highly recommend booking Matoke Tours. Our experience was beyond five stars! https://youtu.be/QVQF9ZexnR4

Much praise for the expert host of the most memorable journey through a breathtaking country!

10-day Safari Trip in Kenya
5/5

From the moment we arrived on the airport in Nairobi until 10-days later we departured to our next destination everything was taken care of. We had a fantastic safari drive - Peter - who was experienced, had a sharp eye to spot animals and had lots of background information about local cultures / animals / vegetation. Also he is very well connected with other drives and part of their community which makes things easier to get arranged and the chance higher to see nice animals. We did a big round from Samburu, Navaisha, Masai Mara, Nakura to Amboseli and although it was a lot of driving it was OK with the stops in between and the stunning scenes of this country.

I highly recommend Matoke as tour operator - they are trustworthy, excellent service, experienced safari drivers and able to give lifetime experiences.
