Couldn't ask for more
5/5

My 6 days with Peter from Buyaga Safaris was excellent - from the beginning to the end. I received the quote very fast and got a very competitive offer - since the itinerary seemed to be more relaxed compared to the 5-days-tours of other operators, the decision was an easy one.

During the whole process of payment and organisation, Buyaga Safaris did a splendid job in providing information and guidance.

The tour itself was the adventure I was hoping for. On the long rides to national park and on Uganda's 'massage roads', there was plenty of time to exchange a lot of cultural information, perspectives and personal opinions regarding land and people of Uganda (and my country) - learning about the differences and similarities between our people.
The trekking of chimpanzees and mountain gorillas - as well as the safaris in Queen Elizabeth national park - created long lasting memories and Peter was always happy to 'run the extra mile', to make sure that the trip is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

I hope that Peter and Buyaga Safaris have a long and prosperous future ahead and can fully recommend the whole experience.

Best Africa Trip!
5/5

I can’t begin to thank Buyaga Safaris enough. We did the eight day Safari including the chimps, the gorillas, rhino Trekking, Murchison Falls, multiple boat rides, and of course the safaris. My trip could have been ruined because my luggage did not arrive. Our guide Dalson, and Peter (the manager) worked very hard and graciously with the airline and the luggage assistant at the airport to locate my bags and have them personally delivered to me when we were eight hours away from the airport. They are locals and have many connections. It took many text messages and phone calls, however, they came through. Dalson, our guide was very knowledgeable and very personable. He was passionate about Uganda and guiding. I highly recommend him to guide your tour. This is my second Africa trip and I would go back just to experience it all again with Buyaga. Also, the accommodations were very nice.

Knowledgeable, patient and very proud man of Uganda
5/5

My experience was amazing! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Dalson, our guide through Uganda was awesome and so knowledgeable! Anything we needed he helped us with and he was very reliable!
Every place we stayed at while traveling through Uganda was unique and special in its own way. The food was delicious and the service was great!
We got to see so many amazing animals, we saw the most powerful waterfall in the world, and we even got to go whitewater rafting down the nile river.
When we started our journey in Uganda Dalson stated "we will meet as strangers and by the end we will be the best of friends!"
That statement could not be any truer.

An amazing experience!
5/5

We stayed in the moderate level accommodations and they were absolutely wonderful. They were clean, safe, and had wonderful views, luxurious amenities, friendly staff, and bountiful food. Our host Peter was amazing. During the booking process, communication with him was prompt and clear. As our guide on the tour, he was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, well-connected, and resourceful. He successfully coordinated a busy itinerary and ensured we had a great time. Be prepared for the possibility of a few long drives, if you plan to see a lot of the country; Uganda is large. Some of the roads can be bumpy, but they allow you to access so many hard-to-reach places. We saw so much of the country traveling between points. We saw all kinds of wildlife on our drives— every animal we had hoped to see. It was truly an amazing experience and a great snapshot of Uganda.

5 days Gorillas and Chimps Safari amazing and FUN with Peter of Buyaga
5/5

The five days Gorillas & Chimps Safari by Buyaga was even more amazing than we expected. First, the main reason for our trip was to see the Gorillas and we are still in shock over that experience. We were able to be so close to them for the full time. Watching the silverback eat his leaves and the mom try to get her playful baby down out of the tree was astounding. My daughter and husband got VERY gently side-swiped by the silverback when he moved to a new spot.
We were delighted with other experiences that we can directly attribute to Peter Amanya (our guide). He met an impossible schedule to get us to a boat ride to see many hippos up close. He pushed to get us in Queen Elizabeth Park near dusk which put us within feet of a half dozen lions. He patiently stayed so we could watch them climb out of trees, play with each other, roll on the ground and even cross right in front of our van for a new lounging spot. He took extra time on a super long day journey to circle a park in search of more views of exotic animals. He stopped to allow my husband and him to help a guy on a motorcycle who had fallen over with a huge load of bananas. I don’t think we would have had the same rich experiences with any other company/guide.
Finally, I will mention the only unavoidable negative for someone planning such a trip—YouTube prepares you for the challenging hikes, but doesn’t mention the grueling road trip to get there. Your safety there will depend on your company/guide choice. The roads and other drivers present challenges you just can’t imagine. Peter’s skill in knowing the depth of the water filled potholes, the steering technique for steep mud-rock roads, and the unexpected behavior of the overloaded cow/human truck in front of us assured our safety. Additionally, his wonderful humor and infectious laugh made every minute of the trip FUN.
This trip will long stand first in our memories of the over 80 countries we’ve visited. We thank Buyaga and especially Peter for the unforgettable experience.
