They were very easy to deal with and quick to respond to any changes to itineraries
5/5

Amakula offer great adventures in beautiful countries. They were very easy to deal with and changing/updating itineraries was no problem at all. Simon was a great organiser and Julius was superb as our driver/guide. Next time we visit we will certainly travel with them again.

Amakula African safaris is a deal.
5/5

Thanks so much Simon the team leader at Amakula African safaris. You guys made my work so easy to book for my 15 days trip from Rwanda and Uganda. I will dearly miss the fun, eating the Rolex(Chapati and Eggs). I recommend you guys for anyone to book with you.

Very knowledgeable, extremely kind, lots of laughs and fun surprises, the absolute BEST.
5/5

Our 15 day safari with Amakula Tours was the most amazing experience of my life. From the beginning Amakula was quick to respond, and booking was smooth. They were also very helpful during the planning phase of our trip. There was a great variety of experiences including white water rafting, nature walks, game drives, community & school visits, wildlife trekking, coffee plantation, making banana gin, basket weaving, and dancing. We learned about Ugandan history, culture and customs and had fun interacting with the native people. Simon and Arafat were fun to be with, very knowledgeable, and extremely kind. We had the pleasure of meeting several other team members, and they too are great people. I highly recommend Amakula Tours and hope you have your adventure of a lifetime.

I cant rate them highly enough! Experience of a lifetime!
5/5

I honestly can't speak highly enough of my experience with Amakula African Safaris. From the very start, Simon was extremely helpful and responsive to my (often many!) emails and queries that I had regarding the trip, and very kindly assisted me with the visa application process. He was also happy to alter the itinerary to my requests, which allowed us to include a trip to Mabamba Bay to see the Shoebill Stork.

Julius was my tour guide, who was genuinely amazing over the entire trip! He did everything he could to make sure I had the best experience possible, including making some last-minute calls to park rangers in Nyungwe National Park to ensure I had the best chance of seeing chimpanzees, and getting me in with the trekking group for seeing the best gorilla family in the Ruhija sector of Bwindi National Park, which has 3 silverbacks and 2 babies!

Julius was brilliant company on the road trips between each activity, and was so knowledgeable about the culture, history, wildlife, and everything else you might like to know about Rwanda and Uganda. Every question I had was answered! Many days we spent 5-6 hours or more in the car, taking in the gorgeous scenery, having the chats and with great music to keep us both uplifted the entire time. He was very attentive, and was brilliant in communicating each step of the itinerary, with realistic time frames of how long each road trip, trek, hike, etc., would take.

He arranged the check-ins at each accommodation, and the registrations at each activity. I was looked after and felt extremely safe the entire trip. He was happy to stop at any moment for photos of the stunning scenery, and was able to spot various wildlife along the roadside, including Black and White Colobus Monkeys that we were extremely lucky to see while driving through Nyungwe NP!

The accommodation overall was fabulous, particularly the last 2 nights (Bakiga Lodge and Mpogo Safari Lodge), and the food was also amazing. Some of the activities, such as the Mount Bisoke hike and Gorilla trek, required a packed lunch, which the accommodations were happy to arrange with multiple meal options available to choose from.

Simon called to check in regularly to make sure everything was going well and that I was happy with my experience. He also made a huge effort and managed to meet us on the last day of the tour for a section of our road trip to Entebbe, so it was lovely to meet him in person and get to hear about his life and passion for his business.

This trip/itinerary with Amakula African Safaris is something I had been looking at on and off for over a year. It stayed in the back of my mind the whole time, but I kept talking myself out of it as its a long way to travel for just one week and would take a lot to save up for it. However, it was still the best value week-long itinerary I could find that covered Gorilla and Chimpanzee trekking, amongst many other activities. I finally talked myself in to taking the plunge and booking the tour, and my god am I so so glad that I did! I think in Simon and Julius I have made some great friends for life! A once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget!

Reliable and client oriented
5/5

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.
