Best hoiliday, wonderful experience and great organisation
I loved my hoiliday to Uganda. I did a 9 day safari and by booking my hoiliday with Mambo Gorilla safaris I was helping to change the lives of children attending Loving Hearts Primary School. Didan was so passionate about making a difference to these children and I found visiting the children in their school very moving. The team were amazing. Charity was an inspirational lady and our driver, Agrey was so calm, chilled and reliable. An amazing experience which has changed my life. Don’t wait - book your hoiliday now.
You can 100% trust these guys, Mambo Gorilla Safaris, for your magical Ugandan experience
I’ve just returned from a 9-day safari to western Uganda, including trekking for gorillas. At first I was very apprehensive about coming to Uganda, but Didan and his team made it a fantastic and unforgettable experience. It was amazing! Please be assured that when you choose and book a tour with Mambo Gorilla Safaris, you are truly making a big difference to the lives of the children attending Loving Hearts Primary School. Many thanks to our very safe driver, Agrey, who took great care of us. Thanks so much to you all for a wonderful trip
I had my 9-days trip with Mambogorilla Safaris.
It’s more than a safari and gorilla trek as you have one in a lifetime opportunity to be inspired and witness the sheer joy of children during the visit in elementary school & orphanage founded by Didan.
Last but not least -Bunyonyi View Resort, magical place to chill and relax, with one of the best views onto the lake Bunyonyi.
I would recommend this company to my friends and will go with them again next time when I travel to Uganda.
The Best Introduction to Africa on Earth
Me, as a 19 year old first time visitor and solo traveler in Africa, I was very excited but nervous nonetheless to visit the pearl of the continent. With Mambo Gorilla Safaris Uganda I had the privilege to explore the western part of the country and from my heart I want to thank Didan and the whole team for giving me the most precious memories, a lot of inspiration and the safari of a lifetime.
The program included a two nights - three days safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park and a couple of days for contemplation and relaxation at beautiful Lake Bunyonyi.
The savanna landscape of the national park in and of itself is a dream come true for every nature lover. To that, add the abundance of wildlife and the local communities I came across; it seriously takes my breath away just thinking back.
Seeing Hippos, Gazelles, Elephants and animals I didn't even know existed up close makes for some great photographs and left me in awe.
My personal highlight was probably the boat ride onto Lake George where we were able to see a big group of Elephants crossing the water onto a nearby island.
Back in the fishing village from where we departed we took a community walk, seeing the everyday lives of the locals and diving deep into their culture and traditions.
Also very educational for me was a small trip to one of the salt lakes where a lot of the locals earn their living. During dry season you will be able to see them harvest the salt and get some very interesting insights into the local salt industry. Also there are pink flamingos on the water!
I can only praise the knowledge, storytelling skills and open heartedness of the guides, it's definetly them who make this experience stand out from other tours. The hot savanna air was always charged up with laughter and happiness with these guys around! They tried their best teaching me their local language, which probably was good fun for both sides. At the end of the trip I feel we have become close friends and just to hang out with them would be reason enough to return here. Maybe I go for some gorilla trekking with them next summer...
Viewing the stars at night from the terrace of our (very nice and beautiful) lodge can easily compete with my memories of the Nepalese Himalayas and falling asleep to the sounds of the bush is a breeze. In this well preserved natural environment, I really appreciated Mambo Gorillas Safaris' emphasis on eco friendly and responsible tourism. Having respect for the animals and environment is definetly a must for me but from what I've heard unfortunately is not always a priority.
Didan explaining to me the vision of his enterprise and how important sustainability in tourism is when we got to Lake Bunyonyi, was truly eye opening. It was the perfect place to let all these new impressions sink in. Bunyonyi View Resort probably has one of the best views onto the lake and the whole team working there is just incredible (shoutout to everybody working in the kitchen: good job!). Lots of talking, lots of silence and a lot of rejuvenation. I could get some secret tips from the staff on great activities and viewpoints around the lake, and Didan took me to his Loving Hearts foundation, a school that supports children in need and provides them with good education and support in everyday life.
Alltogether I want to leave a rating of ten out of ten and highly encourage you to also enjoy a safari with Mambo Gorilla Safaris, they customize your adventure to your own personal interests and budget. And the value of a good guide seriously can't be overestimated. Again, webale (thank you) to everyone who made this possible!
Incredible experience with excellent, reliable service
My wife and I visited Jambo Resort just after New Year. When others said that it was doubtful if we could still see the gorillas (we planned our trip very late) Mambo Gorilla Safaris were our saviours. They looked after us and made sure we saw what we came to see. The trek in the Impenetrable Forest (just the name is exciting) was led by an expert guide who showed a clear respect and love for the environment and animals we were searching for. We had an incredible experience with sufficient time close up to the animals so as not to disturb them but at the same time get some great photographs and memories to last a lifetime. I highly recommend this organisation.
