10-day Safari Trip in Kenya
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
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
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!
Excellent from start to finish. Great personalised service that provided us with a perfect holiday!
From the very beginning the communication both via email and phone was excellent. Lorna listened to what we were looking for and provided us with some great options to choose from. And even ensured that we were able to keep our schedule in tact despite having to move everything forward by 1-day due to an calendar issue on our side.
Once our trip started it was excellent from start to finish. Our guide Adrian was both a great driver and a great source of information; ensuring that not only we knew about the areas we were visiting; but also pointing out various points of local interest as we move from location to location.
On top of that; the accommodation that we were recommended to use throughout our trip was first class. Great locations and perfect atmosphere/service. They really were the perfect places to relax after a day out on safari or gorilla trekking.
Overall, it was an excellent 5 days; with a smooth process from start to finish. 5 stars for both Lorna, Adrian and the whole Matooke Tours team.
Counting down to my next trip with Matoke Tours!
I had a fantastic 16 days trip through Uganda (Sipi falls, Kidepo, Murchison falls, Kibale, Queen Elizabeth NP and Lake Mburo)!
Uganda is a beautiful country! Everything is green, the people are very friendly. I travelled alone (with my driver) but didn't feel unsafe at any moment.
Lorna did a great job during the booking procedure, she gave a quick answer to all my questions and the trip was exactly where I asked for. During the trip she asked regularly if everything was still fine. And yes everything was perfect and well organized!
Ibrahim was my driver/guide. He is an excellent driver. Very friendly and full of energy to tell me everything about Uganda and to show me many beautiful places.
The hotels were great; friendly staff, good food, nice rooms and often magnificent views!
This was my second visit to Uganda, came back to see the leopard and I succeeded!
Thanks Matoke for the memorable experience !
