6-Days of Gorilla and Safari trip

The trip was excellent and we would highly recommend this company to others. It was well planned-organised tour, our guide Apollo was excellent, Knowledgeable and we had great company with him. The accommodation and meals were truly very good. Above all the daily trips we undertook were amazing, to see the gorillas was the experience of a life time, together with land and lake safaris every day brought something new. Got some different sceneries from the plains of Uganda to the rain forests of the mountains in Uganda and Rwanda. Bring a good camera and garters to keep the safari ants out. The only thing that I wouldn't do again is the night safari, but everything else gets my vote with 5-star.

Honestly a Wonderful Company for Gorilla Trek!

I honest heartedly recommend East African Jungle Safaris for a Gorilla trek. Not only did they have a competitive price (the best, actually), the time with our driver/guide Samuel was a pleasure. He was prompt, helpful, well-informed, and his ready humor and great attitude really enhanced our trip. It's a long drive from Kampala to Bwindi, and thus the drive matters--Samuel was fabulous. The budget accommodations were quite nice; we enjoyed a comfortable mountainside stay at Broadbill Forest Camp, where the food was very good and the views absolutely beautiful.

I won't review the trek itself--that's led by Uganda Wildlife Authority staff, and it was wonderful and must to do a tour with this company.

Unforgettable experience in Tanzania...!!!

We spent 9 days with East African Jungle Safaris and we had a wonderful time! We planned the tour with Ruth and everything has gone as per the plan. Everything was perfect: at the arrival we meet to our guide, Frank and just with in some time we became friends! He proved to be pleasant and experienced: he has taught us everything we needed to know about Tanzania. He told us the story of Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro and everything about wildlife. Whatever we had saw, so many animals, tribes, diversity and many more,,, we just have to thank him. This company gave us the opportunity to visit two tribes of bushmen with our guide. He told us about uses, costums and history about them. It was a beautiful experience! Lodges and tented camp provided by Ruth has been really comfortable and characteristic. Thank to the staff, we lived a beautiful experience in Tanzania... they made our stay unforgettable! We suggest to travel with EAJS because of professionalism, experience and excellent price/quality. Thank you Ruth and Frank!....and EAJS!!!

Wonderful and Friendly trip and good organization.

We were planning for a tour in Tanzania and we found out East African Jungle Safaris on internet, then immediatly we contacted Ruth for planning our safari-tour in Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Manyara Lake. We bought an individual trip (we were 2 of us) and we spent 1 week around with our amazing and friendly guide Eddy. We had a lot of fun, and we met many animals during the trip. The trip wasn't expensive and well organised. We chose some medium level accomodations and we spent 2 nights in a tented camp (kati kati) and it was an amazing experience:the dark of the night, the silence and the shining stars. All lodges and the tented camp were nice and clean. Food was good and diversified, we could choose among a lot of things. I think that to plan another safari tour booking through East African company and I also recommend this company to everyone looking for true experience ,,,, you will be sure to have a lot of fun with this serious organization.

Amazing Safari we had in Africa!!

We had an amazing Kenyan safari with EAJS, just got to posting a review now! Ruth was very helpful in arranging the itinerary and changed it many times as per my requested! Without a doubt, Apollo was one of the best tour guides and drivers we've ever come across on any tour, anywhere!
We would highly recommend to our tour guide,,,, to travel at Tsavo National Park, amazing place and we were lucky enough to spot a leopard! During the safari we also saw the falls in Thompson Park, the wildlife at Naivasha and Lake Nakuru plus Masai Mara. Thanks to Apollo our tour guide we were able to get up close to lions, hyenas, rhinos, cheetahs, elephants, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, zebras, buffalo and many more! Amazing safari all round, and looking forward to visiting again! Will definitely be booking through EAJS again - amazing value for money and no complaints!
Thanks again to Ruth and Apollo!

Gorilla and Chimps.

From Starting to the End, it was a wonderfull experience with EAJS.
Walking completely into the dark jungle until meet the gorillas! A family of 10/12 and the big silver back always near us. It was soo amazing to be with them at their wild habitat. Also seeing the chimpz funny moves was great to watch. Everything worth it at here Bwindi Impenetrable National Park!!
Do it with the "East African Jungle Safaris" was a very good choice. All was good and the guide called Willy was so nice everyday, kind and helpful.
It was a lifetime experience that I truly recommend...!

One Side of The Beauty of Tanzania.

The first I want to do, thankyou very much East African Jungle Safaris and our very knowledgeable tour guide Godwin, he made this an unforgettable trip of a lifetime. The weather was wonderful that day it was not too hot and the wind was a little breezy. We stayed for some hours at Lake Manyara National Park, and the drive from the hotel to the park was as beautiful as I have never seen before. The landscape was all green and beautiful.....with beautiful people everywhere.
When you get to the park you are greeted by a troop of baboons and so don't get yourself busy to post pictures when you are at there. Throughout the complete drive at the park, you see beautiful birds like the African grey hornbill, then you will see giraffes and herds of elephants. The tour only gets better from there especially when you visit the hippo pool and get very close to more elephants crossing the road. The most eye catching moment was the herds of African Buffalo, when they start shaking their heads.
Godwin arranged a very tantalizing lunch that included some sandwiches and some of Tanzanian
best foods like samosa, chapati, kitumbua, many other. All of that was perfect...

An experience for lifetime-

Travelling from Kampala for couple of hours by road with Ronald behind the wheel was superb and the hours did not felt long! He is very generous, telling stories about his country, and he has an answer to nearly everything that I made to him,... he was GREAT guide throughout the tour! on the other hand really interrested when we told him about Sweden aswell. We stayed at a Camp, in a "tent-house" and it was something out of the normal. The amount we spent, get true value. When you realise how many people, despite the rain forrest and the gorillas, that are depending on your tribute to survive. On top of that we did the community-tour, don' t miss it! A local person from village guided us, and we was given a fantastic tour around the daily life in the village. Tour was ended with a cultural dance and music performance,it all was unforgettable moment....! We can say, from our hearts, that this is an experience you will bare with you the rest of your life!

Adventures with the East African Jungle Safaris made it simply superb.

We had a wonderful safari with East African Jungle Safaris in Tanzania ( including Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorogoro, Tarangire). It started with an easy booking process with the help of Ruth and flexibility regarding all the wishes we had. He helped to create our dream safari. The team members of East African Jungle Safaris organised an airport pick up and accommodation for the first night. As this was our first time in Africa, it was helpful to us to know that everything had been organised. During our safari at this great place, Samuel was our guide for the whole of the trip. He was great! Friendly, enthusiastic, and clearly has a passion for what he does. He always managed everything accurately to get us at the right spot to see the animals and to take beautiful pics and made this experience very special. We had such a great time with him. We would recommend East African Jungle Safaris to everyone who are planing for a trip to here bacause You are going dealing with people who are very helpful, reliable, and honest. No hidden costs or promises they did not keep.

Went Uphill both ways but worth it...!!

Our trek lasted at 4PM, so we had an intermediate hike, some go longer. We started out strong but the hills climbing were really tough. Taking help of walking sticks was so good while going up as well as down.
Luckily, our guide Frank helped to hire a porter to carry our bagpacks. He eventually carried all of our stuff for us to make it. A lady in our group really struggled at the onset but one of the rangers eventually carried her bag to keep us moving.
We got to the gorilla family at about 11:30 and we just have got a little over an hour with them. We had to move around a lot as they were active. At one point we were watching the adult hang out while two younger ones played - just like what you would see in the park.
After our time we left and hiked for a while and stopped for lunch, we had an actual lunch with us but the others only had snacks and finished quick. Then we hiked the rest of the way back.

Most thankful to Frank for the help, we had the stick and brought good gloves, also we had long socks to tuck in our pants. It is what kept all of us initially in our long sleeves.
And definitely glad I paid the $20 (and gave a big tip) for the porter.
