Incredible and Professional Service
We had an amazing trip with Matoke to Uganda. We went over Christmas 2020 and they were very flexible and responsible and tailored a great trip for our family of 5. We would use them again in a heartbeat. Dunn was a fantastic guide for the 2 week trip
Excellent service, great value!
My husband and I just returned from a 9-day trip to Uganda and we certainly wish we had more time. The country and the people are beautiful but what made the trip even more enjoyable for us was our tour guide Jeffrey from Matoke Tours. He is very knowledgeable, accommodating and has a great sunny personality! Since this is our first trip, we relied a lot on Jeffrey's expertise on how to best spend our short stay and what the local customs are. Overall, it was quite an enriching experience which wouldn't have been possible if we didn't have an excellent guide like Jeffrey.
We are also very pleased with the sales team, particularly Sven who has assisted us with the planning of the trip. We wanted to see many places in a limited amount of time, but Sven was able to create an itinerary for us that suited what we wanted and packed it with some of the most exciting activities possible given our short stay...
We are very happy and would definitely recommend Matoke Tours to our friends and family who plan to visit Uganda.
Took extremely good care and attention of all my travel arrangements including planning the trip.
This was an absolutely wonderful trip and I cannot thank Matoke Tours enough for making this all possible. I had used Matoke Tours on a previous visit to Uganda and, so it was a relatively simple decision for me to approach them once again. Given the general travelling situation at present, I felt completely reassured right at the outset that I was in good and capable hands once again. Sven Gilian, the Sales Manager of Matoke Tours, took a lot of meticulous care and attention in planning my itinerary and dealing so promptly and efficiently with all my queries. There was also sufficient flexibility provided in case I had to make any late amendments or rescheduling to my travel plans. I spent 12 days in total going initially to Murchison Falls and then headed south towards Kibale National Park, QE NP, Lake Mburo and then back towards Entebbe. The lodges were excellent, the food and hospitality as well. There was full adherance to Covid protocols in the vehicle, the lodges and all the national parks offices etc. I had an excellent and knowledgeable driver/guide, Kule from Matoke Tours , whose company made the journeys so much more enjoyable. We had a little debrief every evening and discussed the route/activities for the next day which was really good. I hope once the travel restrictions are eased, many more can visit Uganda and experience the natural beauty and wildlife. I look forward to my next visit and to reunite with all my friends at Matoke Tours.
Incidentally, whilst I was at the Kibale National Park, I lost my cap, It is a brown cap and has 'Panama Canal' on it. If any of you happen to visit Kibale NP in the future and see one of the chimps wearing it, it's mine and I would be grateful if the chimp could be coerced into returning it back to the main office :)
Everything taken care of from beginning to end!
We actually booked our tour in June of 2019 for the August of 2020. As the global pandemic took hold, we rescheduled for Christmas/New Years of 2020, but then that became doubtful. Matoke helped us reschedule around multiple flight cancellations and Covid Testing requirements and were prompt and flawless in their response. Matoke went out of their way to make sure that everything was safely set-up for us from the moment we got to the airport to the moment we departed back to the USA. Every lodge used Covid safety measures far beyond our expectations and we never felt at risk. Our Tour Guide, Musa, also enforced precautions as we went between activities and on Game Drives and Treks. Not only were our expectations met, under difficult situations, they were exceeded.
All of our scheduled activities, which were planned 18 months earlier, were carried out, and a couple of unscheduled ones were added (FLAMINGOS!!). The lodges which were chosen for us were uniformly of high standard while each being unique and special. Matoke's staff was always cheerful in our emails, which, due to the circumstances, were numerous. We can't speak highly enough about our experience!
All super well organised, great tour of great Uganda's south-west area
A great tour at Christmas 2020 / new-year 2021, when most of the rest of world was under lock down...
All was well organised, and the tour well conceived. The driver / guide was interesting, and most importantly drove very well, be it on the road or during game drives.
I appreciated having been contacted after having booked (and paid our tour) to let me know that, due to a national parks entrance fees discount I had paid too much a s was entitled a refund, I though that was very honest, thanks for this honesty Matoke!
I can only recommend traveling with Matoke in Uganda, all good !
