Reliable and client oriented
Amakula Safaris organised a great two week trip for us in Rwanda and Uganda. From the outset Simon was very responsive and would reply to emails promptly. He was very reliable and catered to all our needs. The few hitches we had during the trip were sorted out quickly and efficiently. Julius, our driver /guide was excellent and a real asset to the company. The trip itself was wonderful with many unforgettable experiences.
Beautiful primates in Uganda
It was a great experience getting closer to the gorillas at Bwindi impenetrable national forest and chimps at Kibale with Amakula African safaris guys

Encredible safari with Amakula Afrcan Safari guys
We have just finished a 4-day Gorilla & Golden Monkey trekking safari with Amakula Afrcan Safaris. When we contacted having seen their profile seriously they are young and brilliant guys, yes they have so far operated for one year and they opened up to us and seriously they are true guys to deal with. We have previously done the “Big 5” in Tanzania, so we can now say we have done the “African Big 6” with Gorillas in Uganda!
Amakula African Safaris was an excellent choice to deliver our experience. Communication from home via WhatsApp with Simon was always efficient and timely, and the program they put together for us covered off everything we wanted to see an experience. They are a highly professional outfit to deal with, and they took the stress out of planning by explaining the different options available.
Arthur was our driver/guide/problem solver (and at the Rwandan land border crossings there seemed to always be something unusual to deal with!). He was so personable, friendly and willing to share information about life in Uganda that it felt like we were on a road trip with an old friend. He kept us on schedule and properly prepared for the next days’ activities. Many thanks my brother!!!!
As for the treks themselves, we started with the Golden Monkey trek, and it was amazing to see these creatures in the only place in the world they can be found. But the real deal was trekking for Gorillas in Bwindi. We were 4 very fit hikers and it was a tough 4-hr trek to find them, but so worth it! Absolutely amazing to see these beautiful animals - an experience unlike anything you can imagine. There are easy, moderate and difficult treks (ours was moderate and I would not like to imagine hat the difficult one would look like!), and you are an experienced guide and an armed security escort (to scare off any threats - not to harm them). It is a very well-run operation, and we felt completely safe at all times. These guides work very hard, and in our high-end hiking gear we could only marvel at them doing this in rubber boots. Please remember to bring Ugandan Shillings with you on the treks to leave them a meaningful tip, as trust me they earn it. If not for them, the only gorillas you will see will be at souvenir shops.
I would absolutely recommend Amakula to anyone looking for a safei planning company. They are efficient, courteous, professional, and very competitively priced. All lodging and meals were top notch.
