Perfect, flexible, professional guide provider!
5/5

I asked them to organize very personal customized tour and they made it. Thanks to them, I had an unforgettable experience with my family.

5 day tour in Uganda: Kampala, Bwindi and Jinja
5/5

Though the most normal would be for me to say that the best part of the trip was the actual encounter with the Gorillas at Bwindi I must admit that it was all the trip with Ronald. His friendly and humble behavior during the whole tour made me and my father enjoy our holiday to the limit. I normally do not write reviews online for anything but in this case and considering he was possibly the best tour guide I’ve ever encountered I am indebted to him. We covered tons of topics during our car rides, shared my music from Spain with his music from Uganda (Eddy Kenzo!) and eventually extended our tour around the country with him. Its a must to visit Uganda and hence to reach out to Ronald to enjoy it to the fullest.

Absolutely amazing experience.
5/5

We did about two weeks with Katie. Ronald put together our trip, and Simon was our guide. I have nothing but great things to say a bout the entire experience. Ronald was attentive and made great decisions with regards to stops and places to stay. As a guide, Simon was amazing. He was so attentive and has an amazing eye for spotting all kinds of great wildlife! He was so incredibly kind to our 10-year old daughter. He made sure there were lollipops in the backseat for her, and once when she complained that her feet were cold, he stopped and returned with a pair of socks for her! He was incredibly knowledgeable and really ensured that we learned a lot during our time. He was fantastic and accommodated special needs and figured out what our family members all enjoyed. I cannot recommend Kajie more. They will truly give you an Ugandan experience to remember forever.

Amazing honeymoon in Uganda
5/5

We chose to spend our honeymoon in Uganda and could not recommend this tour enough! From the beginning Ronald was friendly and attentive and well informed. He even bought us snacks and allowed us to pick our own meals, it really felt like we were travelling with a friend, which he soon became! The choices of lodge were beautiful and all in the most scenic settings I could imagine. We wanted to visit Lake Bunyonyi in addition and be dropped in Jinja, Ronald accommodated all of these requests with no hesitation or stress involved. The gorillas were a truly unforgettable experience but the wildlife was abundant everywhere and we really fell in love with Uganda. Thank you! Do not hesitate if considering this trip.

Absolutely the best choice, excellent value for money, will come back! 10 stars at least!!
5/5

Our 10 day trip with Ronald was the experience of a life time. From the start, Ronald and his team took extremely good care of us, patiently answering all of our questions and adjusting our itinerary multiple times. Looking back, I actually wished I had more relied on their judgement instead of coming up with my own itinerary because they are so familiar with all the destinations and know very well how much time you need at a given place. So in case of doubt, trust that they will find the ideal solution!

Once we were in Uganda, we really had the time of our lives. I had been a bit sceptical about spending so much time with a stranger, but boy, was I wrong. Ronald took us around himself and his company was actually what made this trip so special. Besides being extremely organized and attentive to all our needs, he is just a very kind and fun person to hang around with and I'm not exaggerating when I say that our hearts felt very heavy on the day we had to say goodbye (and that we were overjoyed when we happened to meet on the road to Murchinson Falls some days later). Friend, we can't wait to see you again, be it in Uganda or Europe!!

While my tears are drying, back to more practical things: the lodges that Ronald picked were amazing. We loved every single one for their stunning vistas, carefully decorated interiors and lovely staff. We opted for budget (although "budget" does not mean cheap in Uganda), so naturally, these are not 5 star hotels. But the surroundings made more than up for this and we actually felt like on a luxury trip most of the time. Needless to say that everything was extremely clean (much more so than e.g. in Asian countries at this price level). Notably, we talked to other people traveling with other tour operators and they weren't as happy with their accommodation, so this is certainly another aspect where Kajie Safaris excels!

We also really enjoyed the food. Most of our meals were provided by the lodges, but Ronald also took us to different restaurants on the road, all of which were equally delicious. From our experience, it is better to opt for vegetarian dishes, since this is what most locals eat by default, so you get more authentic food this way ;). We also really appreciated that Ronald would rather find a nice local restaurant on the way than going the easy way and getting a sandwich from the lodge. Our tour, unlike many others, included all food and this can actually quickly add up since lodges charge nearly European prices. So one more reason to choose Ronald and his team.

In terms of activities, our schedule was perfect. We saw and did so many things, but still had enough time to unwind and relax. Ronald suggested extra activities, but left the decision to us. He also broke up long rides by showing us interesting scenery and making sure we got to stretch our legs from time to time. Besides, time in the car passed so quickly because Ronald would explain a lot of things about Uganda to us and we had so many interesting discussions on the road.

The game drives were out of this world - Ronald is exceptionally good at spotting animals and birds (he saw lions moving their tail when I didn't even see their heads with my binoculars) and never tires to point them out to you, literally going the extra mile to make sure you get to see as much as possible of Ugandas awesome fauna. When we were on our own in Murchinson Falls NP, we took a ranger, so we have a good comparison, and I can honestly say that Ronald was just as knowledgeable and more keen on making our experience special.

Ronald is also a very good and careful driver and knows his car like no other. Ugandan traffic and roads can be challenging at times, but we felt very safe. On the topic of driving: we had considered to self-drive the entire trip, but ended up doing only Murchison Falls on our own. We were actually very glad about not doing the whole trip ourselves. While driving in Uganda is definitely doable (at least during the day), it would have been a lot more exhausting. And frankly speaking, it is hard to enjoy a game drive when you have to pay attention to the more than bumpy roads in national parks.

Considering all of the above, a package from Kajie Safaris is really extremely good value because it literally includes everything (for example entrance fees to NP, which also add up quickly). We met other people who certainly paid more and were not nearly as happy as we were. If you're considering a trip to Uganda, look no further!! And if you haven't yet, you should certainly put it on your bucket list because the country has so much to offer and no one does Uganda better than Ronald. Webale!!!
