Welcome to Safaris By Jon! We are a Ugandan owned safari company with 10 years of experience in the tourism industry in Uganda. We create bespoke travel experiences and trips uniquely specific to the interests and needs of every client. Our tailor made trips are privately guided by local Uganda travel experts with over a decade of experience leading trips and hundreds of safaris. From Gorilla Trekking to River Safaris on the River Nile.


Extremely professional and knowledgeable with a great personality and friendly.

Trekking Chimpanzees is a one of a kind adventure. Coolest and most awe inspiring experience. Safaris by Jon excelled in planning and orchestrating the event. He clearly has contacts everywhere and was able to make our experience the best possible. I can't imagine trekking chimpanzees with anyone else. Jon went out of his way to make sure we had the best accommodations and the best trekking. He made sure to fulfill our every wish and every need. Thanks, Jon!!!!

I would recommend Safaris by Jon over and over again.

I will start by saying Uganda is amazing. Safaris by Jon was an excellent tour company. His email response time with any questions were answered very quickly and thoroughly. Jon picked us up at our hotel on time and we then toured the local Kampala attractions. We continued with our arranged tour with his tour guides Jerrod and Hillary. Both were exemplary. Their knowledge of Uganda was so good! We were thoroughly impressed with the entire tour. When considering Uganda we were concerned about the Level 2 travel advisory. Jon assured that Uganda was safe. We found this to be true every place we went. It is unfortunate that the government has not been able to reduce this advisory. We would recommend Uganda and Safaris by Jon over and over again. Bob and Carol Miller North Dakota USA.

Aussies on Safari with Jon

If Uganda isn't on your African itinerary I highly recommend it should be and also on that itinerary should be a trip run by "Safaris by Jon"

My partner and I booked a private safari with Jon and it was absolutely amazing, he picked us up from Entebbe Airport then we began our adventure out to the west side of Uganda as our first stop was Queen Elizabeth National Park. After a morning game drive we went out to see the Chimpanzees at Kyambura Gorge which was one of the best safari days you could ask for! The accommodation Jon booked for us was great and the food was beautiful!

After Queen Elizabeth we headed to Bwindi to see the Mountain Gorillas. Again Jon nailed it with our accommodation setting us up in a comfortable room in a lodge that does great food, the lodge also packs you lunch for when you are out Gorilla Trekking.

From Bwindi we spent our last night at Lake Bunyonyi, which is a peaceful place to kick back and relax and look at all the amazing photos from Safari.

If you are thinking about coming to Uganda and want a great Safari experience I would highly recommend reaching out to Jon! We really enjoyed our time with him!

On another note, the vehicle he took us on tour in was a 4x4 van with a pop top roof for safari drives so it was the perfect vehicle for roadtrip comfort and game drives.

Overall 10/10

Absolutely incredible

My partner and I did the budget 4 day 3 night gorilla and chimp trekking tour. Absolutely brilliant! We were exceptionally fortunate to have been on a safari with Safaris by Jon and even luckier that we got John as our guide. Everything was seamless from the moment John picked us up from the airport. He organised somebody from the airport chaperone us through immigration, which made it less daunting. The car was extremely comfortable, we were even able to fully recline to nap on long drives. John was extremely kind and attentive, and his guidance ensured we had an amazing trip. He always made sure to give us loads of information and was very informative. All of our accommodation and meals were also excellent.

We did chimp trekking in Kyambura Gorge and gorilla trekking in the Ruhija sector of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Both were excellent and we were lucky enough to see both animals up close. We even got time for a bonus game drive in Queen Elizabeth Natural Park and managed to see lions, elephants, buffalo and a leopard as well as warthogs, a hyena, kobs and more in only 3 hours! Obviously we were lucky, but John's knowledge and excellent driving had a big role to play!

Can't thank and recommend John enough for an incredible experience!

Incredible solo female trip around Uganda!

Fantastic solo trip around Uganda! Very professional, informative and kind. Felt very safe as a solo female. Loved how calm and green Uganda was. Seeing the chimps and gorillas was an incredible once in a lifetime experience! Would highly recommend John!! Very reasonably priced considering I got my own personalised tour!!
