An unforgettable journey tailored by a 5-Star company
5/5

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.

10 day safari
5/5

We did a 10 day safari from the 1st to the 10th of Feb 2020. It was a lifetime experience I found matoke tour's online and just crossed my fingers and hoped for the best, they were fantastic from the place's we stayed to our driver everything went so well. Murchions falls was fantastic, we got to do a village walk which I loved and the swamp walk was excellent, all guide's we met and to be honest all the uganda people were so lovely, I have to say the high point was the silver back's you must not miss the opportunity to see them , I can not put into word's the amazing, breathtakingly experience it was do not miss it. Im a woman of 48 not exactly fit but no bother with the walk up. I also travelled in Uganda for 2 weeks by myself and felt very comfortable it really is a safe country. Anyone thinking about going and doing the safari with matoke tour's I would recommend the no problem, my advice to anyone is BOOK IT JUST GO to this wonderful place.

Excellent service and a fantastic experience in Uganda
5/5

Matoke tours and Madeliene our travel Consultant provided us with excellent service during the entire booking process. She was proactive and proposed a better alternative than the one we initially asked for. I really recomend to fly in to Kigali and drive thru the country to Uganda and Lake Mutanda.

The gorilla trekking in Uganda was a fantastic experience and a memory for Life. The hotel and the location at lake mutandan was really great, even better than I expected. The Gorilla tracking itself was very exciting. We was also very well taken care of by our driver from Matoke Tours the entire trip. We also had time to spend a few hours in Kigali Before our flight back which I really recomend,

I have worked more than 20 years in the travel industry with both Groups and events and individual travel and this was a first class experience. Thank you!
