Amazing day with Mountain Gorillas in Uganda
5/5

I booked a 2 day quick trip to Uganda to see the Mountain Gorillas. My travel agent recommended Safari Vacations. It was a wonderful experience. Their guide, Edwin was fabulous. He was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. He was also a very good driver which was great as the traffic was challenging!

The accommodation was very comfortable with good food and expansive views of the forest.

Everything went smoothly!
5/5

Alonso did a great job leading the way! I was the only one on this trip which it made it even more personal. Gorilla trekking and chimpanzee trekking are a once in a lifetime experience. Jason helped organize everything and answered all my questions before I left. While on the trip, Alonso was there to greet me at the airport right away and showed me the best spots in Uganda. Truly unforgettable.

Well educated, friendly, respected tour guide
5/5

Julius took my friend and I on a 3 day trip of Uganda and Rwanda. We visited the genocide museum in Kigali before departing to Uganda where we did the gorilla trekking in Bwindi national park. The whole experience was exceptional. The gorilla trekking was a once in a lifetime and we were overwhelmed with the experience we had. Julius is a way known and respected tour guide and made sure we got to trek the Tinatine gorilla family. They were highly active and the silver back was a unit, we got right next to the whole family. We cannot thank Julius enough for an unforgettable experience. We highly recommend Safari vacations and travel service for tours to east Africa and Julius as your tour guide!

Professional, knowledgeable, and adaptable
5/5

While visiting Uganda for business, we had 2 extra days and were hoping to see as much as we possibly could. We wanted to get picked up in Kigali, Rwanda, go to Bwindi to see gorillas, go to Queen Elizabeth National Park, and then end up in Mbarara. I reached out to several tour operators, and most said that was not one of their offerings so they could not help, but Safari Vacations was immediately amenable to customizing our trip exactly as we wanted. They also recommended lodging outside of Queen Elizabeth NP and arranged for a river boat cruise/tour which was delightful.

I worked with Jason via email throughout the booking process. He was prompt and responsive. I had all of the details of our trip ahead of time, so I knew where we were going, how long it would take, etc. The final price we were quoted was very reasonable for the activities we had included, especially given how far we were being transported.

There were 3 particular instances that stood out in my mind which put Safari Vacations at the 5-star level:
1. After leaving Kigali at 3am, our driver, Alex, noticed something amiss with the car. He was on the phone immediately making arrangements to swap cars at the border. When it turns out that the car wasn't going to make it to the border, he arranged a car to pick us up at get us there. Car trouble happens to us all, but I was very impressed at how proactive Alex was about making other arrangements so this was barely a small hiccup and not a major disruption.
2. Safari Vacations arranged for us to track one of the gorilla families that was more accessible from the road given our tight schedule. Some people walk for hours to see gorillas, but we found them within 10 minutes of starting out. This extra effort ensured that we were able to spend our full hour with the gorillas and still make it to our next destination on time.
3. Alex was eager to help with anything we requested, be it a lunch break while driving, finding an ATM, helping me with a challenging border situation with my luggage, or calling our lodging in Mbarara to ensure door-to-door service.

It is a trustworthy and friendly service
5/5

Knowing about the Safari Vacations & Travel Services and Jason from a colleague, I reached out in a very short notice (only 2 days in advance!) to ask Jason to set up a gorilla tracking trip. I was a little doubt that he might not be able to make it as I was advised that it may take time to book for the permit. Jason came back with "yes, we do"; "no problem"; "no worries" which made me even more nervous if it can be true, honestly.

It turned out to be a great trip to Uganda with very punctual guide -- Adams who drove safely through a long winding road to get to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in time for the cultural performance and a debriefing before the tracking trip.

It worths your money and leaves the rest to Jason!

Thank you Jason and your team! Good luck with more trips and more clients to Uganda!
