Incredible tour company - best experience
5/5

Absolutely exceptional - from the booking and organisation to the day-to-day experiences, lodges, food and beautiful scenery.

Africa Adventure Vacations were brilliant. The customer service was out of this world. Robert organised everything for us, and we paid directly from an Australian bank account to the Ugandan bank. It was smooth and easy to coordinate. The cost was significantly cheaper booking directly allowing us to take advantage of the incredible lodges and accommodation booked.

It was a dream trip - we saw and experienced everything we wanted to - from lions hunting at night, to hippos wading through the lakes, elephants crossing roads and baboons jumping on the truck. It was just a great adventure from start to finish.

We cannot recommend AAV enough. Our guide Abdul met us at the airport and then he ensured we had everything we needed from that point on. A dream come true.

Don't hesitate and book today!

Excellent trip: 16 days to Burundi, DRC, Rwanda and Uganda
5/5

We toured with two couples, 16 days to Burundi, DRC, Rwanda and Uganda. Caesar was an awesome guide and Robert handled everything competently from the office side. As is often the case with Africa, adjustments needed to be made along the way during the trip and they were handled well. We saw gorillas twice, chimpanzees twice plus all of the Big 5 and more. An outstanding vacation. Highly recommended!

Sensational tour company
5/5

Absolutely the best there is in Uganda. Africa adventure vacations went above and beyond to make sure we had a trip of a lifetime. Robert was great at organising and Caesar executed it with perfection. Caesar was a great tour guide and a pleasure to be in the company of. Thank you for everything! We will see you in Tanzania soon!

Organized, comprehensive and tailored the trip to what we wanted to see
5/5

I also did a more in depth review on trip advisors, so please review. Were a family of 4 (2 kids ages 22 and 16). Goal was gorillas but Uganda is so much more and incredibly under rated. First, I contacted 9 safari companies out of uganda and Robert of Africa Adventure Vacations, Ltd called me immediately on whatsapp. He addressed every question I had, made wonderful suggestions and had competitive pricing. I knew for the most part what we were interested in seeing and tge parks we wanted to explore but Robert organized it and made it happen. For a little more, we opted for luxury accommodations and wow it did not disappoint. The lodges were exceptional. We got upgraded, we were close to where the animals were known to be. It was top notch. Robert arranged everything so upon arrival we were guests and didn't have to think. We could just enjoy. All meals were included. We had ample water and felt safe

Our guide who met us at the airport upon arrival with Robert was this kind hearted 25 year old local. His pride for his country was evident in everything he did. He was a wealth of information about the animals, local culture and people, cuisine...just everything. We conversed from breakfast until 9pm at night. We had many long drives to talk and get to know him, and he know us. He individualized our vacation to concentrate on what interested us. We are physicians and without us inquiring about it, he took us to an island hospital where we got a tour from the local doctor. It was an amazing opportunity that Herbert arranged. He went above and beyond day after day. We would laugh with him, kids had inside jokes they all enjoyed. He made this trip for us!!! He was an excellent driver. He would stop when we asked and was so organized, making sure we accomplished all we were set out to do that day. By the end, we all she'd tears at the airport as we departed ways from our new friend.

We toured Murchison Falls and queen Elizabeth National parks, ziwa rhino sanctuary, ishasha unsuccessful in searching for tree lions and chimp and gorilla trekking. We did a lot in 8 full days ...probably too much and didn't have much down time to really enjoy the luxury lodges. I would recommend another day or 2 to have a bit more time at the pool etc or cut out a few activities if you're trying to do it all in 8 days. If we had to cut out items I guess I'd not do the swamp tour and salt mining. It was interesting but could have been some time for relaxing. The ishasha sector is a long long bumpy dusty drive. We enjoyed it but would be another almost day of enjoying other activities. I would also say that I would not do the 4 hour chimp habituation. It was costly and way too many people. It was terrific early in the morning when it was just our group but then several people congregated and it was way too populated and the habituation group that paid extra was shoved out of the way for over an hour so the 1 hour trekkers had their time with chimps and we just stood around.

Lake bunyanyi birdsnest resort was a great way to end the trip. I would definitely recommend a porter with gorillas treks. For 4 of us we hired one, who held my hand on the difficult terrain. It was $20 plus tip. The walking sticks were free to use. We toured a batwa Pygmy communityband that should not be missed. Had I known, I would have brought clothing and food to donate.

Bring lots of small shillings to tip. It's not expected but is greatly appreciated. The food was wonderful and no one got sick. Robert provided us with a packing list and it is Essential to follow this. He is spot on with what to pack. We brought sunscreen, DEET, and just a carryon. Don't bring a huge suitcase. We sprayed our clothes with premethrin prior to travel. Bring lightweight raincoat & have good hiking boots. Robert arranged trekking permission and gave links to the visa so I knew it was legit. You don't want to get scammed

I can't recommend and endorse Africa adventure vacations, Ltd enough. There was so much that could go wrong on such a huge trip but they made sure it didn't. I would personally request Herbert as a guide especially if you have teens. He's relatable to us inour 50s but got along so well with our children too. Only thing I would avoid is Rwandair if you can

Amazing experience
5/5

This 3 day safari was an amazing experience, we enjoyed it a lot! The communication ahead of our trip with the organiser Robert was easy and smooth. On the accommodation, Pumba Cottages provided an authentic experience, it was great to be so close to nature, and all the staff was helpful and kind. Queen Elizabeth park and Kalinzu forest were beautiful and provided a full-on safari and chimp trekking experience, we were able to see a huge variety of animals. This is of course thanks to Muzafulu, our guide who was swiftly communicating with other drivers, and knowing when and where to go. "M" was a very knowledgeable guide, always happy to answer all our questions on animals, on Ugandan lifestyle or on the next activities in the agenda. He was kind and polite, always inquiring how we are and making sure that we have everything we need. In contrast to Kenya, where we had a group tour, we really appreciated that this tour was private, yet it was very nice to be able to talk with M on a variety of subjects. He is a cheerful and easy-going guide, and we would wholeheartedly recommend him as a guide and the whole of this tour to everyone. So thanks a lot for this tour and special thanks to M!!
