Unforgettable Uganda adventure with the family!
5/5

We were looking for a professional, reliable and affordable party who could help us to organize a family private tour of Uganda. After some research on the internet I came in contact with Sander van Zanten from Grassrootz. He turned out to be the perfect partner and Uganda expert for us! We could easily make our wishes and demands known and in no time Sander proposed a wonderful 8-day Uganda adventure. Exactly what we were looking for and in line with our budget. It was arranged quickly and top.
From July 27 to August 3, 2019, we discovered Uganda as a family. And all this under the guidance of the fantastic driver and guide Bob. How nice it was for us to have such an experienced, calm and professional guide. From the start we felt like five of us at home with Bob in the 4WD Toyota Van and he definitely contributed a lot to our travel pleasure. So always ask for Bob when you book a Uganda trip through Grassrootz!
We especially wanted to gain the 'jungle experience' in Uganda, knowing that we would then go to the savannas of Tanzania. The adventure tour therefore went from Kibale Forest, to Southern Queen Elizabeth Park, via Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to Lake Mburo National Park. Unbelievable, the richness of flora and fauna that we have seen, indescribable actually. We wanted to stay in comfortable budget lodges, surrounded by nature. This was also a big hit, with Dave the Cave Ecolodge (Queen Elizabeth) and Broadbill Forest Camp (Bwindi) as top accommodations.
What I found particularly cool about Uganda is that the country has almost everything in terms of flora and fauna, a lot is still untouched and the people are so open, pure and optimistic. Tanzania may be (more) famous for, among other things, the Serengeti and the large amount of wildlife, but because of the growing tourism you will notice that you are seen more as a 'walking wallet' and in Uganda this is definitely not the case. Also in Uganda we have seen a lot of wildlife up close, without a crowd of jeeps around you. We also did a Chimp trek in peace, sailed through the swamp and spotted birds in the jungle and you rarely saw other tourists around you. Unique experiences! Due to the young age of the children we did not do a Gorilla trekking but I can tell from experience that Uganda (and Grassrootz) has much more to offer than this famous attraction.
All in all, thanks to Sander and Bob, Grassrootz has given us, as a family, an unforgettable Uganda adventure. I would like to recommend Sander and Grassrootz to tailor your Uganda trip and ask for Bob as a guide/driver. Success guaranteed!
And ..... if you have any doubts between the well-known Tanzania / Kenya or the relatively unknown Uganda ?: GO UGANDA! The Green Pearl of Africa!

Very professional and friendly staff for a wonderful experience in Uganda
5/5

Sander did a great job organising our tour, it was a bit last minute and we asked for a lot of changes; he's always been very responsive and available to answer any question.
During the trip, our local driver and guide Bob Magezi was also great, we felt safe at any time, he is easy going and never late. Bob is knowledgeable about his country (history, geography, culture, etc) and about wildlife (habits & habitat, spotting animals, etc).
Wildlife is amazing, we went to most of the natural reserves and were never disappointed. Mountain gorillas trekking is definitely an experience to live! We were so happy to spot a leopard and climbing lions in a tree, thanks to hawkeye-Bob.
Accommodations were good (we chose contained tents or rooms), food was good. Our fav was Mihingo Lodge, such a lovely place with a lovely staff!
We absolutely loved our time in Uganda and recommend Grassrootz for their professionalism.

Everything went very smoothly. Sander was very responsive and helpful during out trip.
5/5

The tour was great. Even when there were issues with the experience Sander was always available to help. Overall everything went very well! The driver was fantastic and always helpful, the accommodations were exactly what we had asked for, and the animals were out and having fun!

Professional operator, friendly, helpful, experienced, good communication
5/5

Our experience with Grassrootz is very good. The owner is very friendly and helpful. After the first contact, we already had a possible travel plan within a few days, only a few details had to be adjusted to have a perfect plan.

Our driver David was a very good guide and very nice person. Knowledgeable and friendly. We had nice conversations and were able to share many experiences. Even if we wanted something extra or different, he gave us his thoughts about the possibilities.

The booked accommodations met our expectations. Clean, good food, friendly staff.

In short, we had a great trip. We were able to fully enjoy the trip and did not have to worry about anything ourselves. We would therefore heartily recommend Grassrootz.

Very good tour operator and a great guide John.
5/5

All thanks to Sander and our guide John
