Fantastic memorable trip. A once in a lifetime opportunity made possibly by Pearlafric.
5/5

From the very first email communication with Pearlafric, we were put at ease and knew that we were dealing with professionals who have high expectations and cater to all clients. We dealt with Innocent, who made suggestions and recommendations based on his wealth of knowledge on Uganda. He gave clear responses to all questions and took great consideration for the needs of us and our two small children. I honestly don't think we would have experienced so much of the country or had such an easy, relaxing trip if it wasn't for Inno's attention to detail and organisation. We will book with Pearlafric again if we ever get the chance to go back to Uganda and are excited to hear that they organise trips to Kenya - which is a place which we would love to visit too!

Visit beautiful Uganda and visit it with Pearl Afric (review from a very very happy client)
5/5

In 2015 I lived in Uganda for half a year and I did 2 Safaris with Pearl Afric Tours & Travel. Both of my groups (one of 4 people and one of 8) were extremely happy and each member (so I was told to say) is ready to recommend the company to anyone interested in traveling to Uganda.
The communication with the manager Innocent was excellent and the planning of our trip went smoothly. It was no problem for him to include our special wishes regarding prices, accommodation or pick-up places. We planned our second trip on very very short notice and although it was a weekend, Innocent organized it, again, to our full satisfaction.
Our tour guide, Abdul, was very friendly and an excellent driver, which is, believe me, important in Uganda. In addition, he was punctual (he mostly waited for us), reliable and planed the days by respecting the timetable and our wishes. He had a wide knowledge of the country and its animals and most importantly he was very good in finding them. He also gave us useful tips, such as to sit on the left side of the boat to see the animals better.
The accommodations and the food was good, some better than others. The cars were comfortable and good for observing animals.
If you are planning to do a Safari in Uganda and if you like it a bit more individual, I strongly recommend you to do it with Pearl Afric Tours & Travel. Your wishes will be taken into consideration, the service is from the planning phase until your drop-off fast and friendly and your guide will make sure that you experience many great moments in this beautiful country.

Gorillas, lake Kivu, Kigali and more!
5/5

I had a great experience in Rwanda and Pearl Afric tours was excellent in organizing and managing the trip from beginning to end. Everything went smoothly and I loved visiting Rwanda; my guide was personable and knowledgeable, and I came away from it feeling like I had had a truly unique and special experience. I would happily recommend Pearl Afric to anyone!

Don't hesitate to choose Pearl Afric for your tour through Uganda!
5/5

We really enjoyed the perfect service and organization that was offered by Pearl Afric on our trip through Uganda. The roundtrip the agencies follow is usually the same, differences between the operators are therefore often found in smaller details. We had the impression that Pearl Afric provides a more personal approach than the larger companies. For example, in Fort Portal we stayed overnight in a B&B rather than in yet another lodge which gave us a very good view on the life in a smaller African town.

Innocent is a lovely person, who will give you the best service with the best intentions. Don’t let yourself be put off by the slightly messier format of the offer compared to the slick European standards, neither by the typical African English (we find it very charming!). Besides, we found it important to directly invest in a local based company rather than to organise things through (European) middlemen. No need to say that you also save a considerable amount of money this way.

Pearl Afric is 100% trustable, but maybe it gives some people an awkward feeling having to organise everything from 1000 km’s away via e-mail. We can confirm this works out fine and are happy to alleviate any confusion or worries when it comes to that.

Finally a last tip regarding the payment: this can also be done by a bank transfer to a Dutch account of Innocent’s wife, Ms. Janssen. We have arranged the down payment this way. Also possible is to bring cash money to Uganda, but from experience we know that (North?) Europeans rather prefer paying in an electronic way….up to you. Enjoy your stay in this marvellous country!

Fantastic driver/tour guide, fantastic experience
5/5

I was in a group on safari a few weeks ago and we had Noor as driver and guide. We struggled through the mud to get to the Red Chilli camp in Murchison. At all times he was calm and the ultimate professional. On the safari he did everything he possible could to make sure we saw everything there was to see. He was never anything but accommodating and a complete gentleman. Many thanks!

An unforgettable and great experience with PearlAfric
5/5

Innocent Manda organized a marvelous trip in Uganda for our family . We met him at the ‘Vakantiebeurs’ in Utrecht (the Netherlands) and stayed in touch by a very pleasant email contact.
We travelled with our two sons of 17 and 18 for three weeks in this beautiful country in a spacious 4wd with a special roof for seeing wildlife. We rafted on the river Nile, hiked at Sipi falls and visited the beautiful national parks where we saw the big five, chimps and imposing gorilla’s. Special thanks to our driver Paul. He is such a kind, reliable and gentle man and knows a lot about Uganda. We learned about its history, culture, nature and wildlife.
Travelling with PearlAfric was an unforgettable and great experience. Keywords to describe PearlAfric Tours & Travel: experienced, reliable, flexible, high level of service and hospitality.

Excellent tour operator
5/5

During the years from 2008 to 2012, when I was lucky to live and work in Uganda, I have travelled quite a few times with the assistance of Pearl Afric Tours & Travel. I got to know the manager Innocent Manda personally. Every time I was very happy with the driver/guide. As I always travelled alone he made me feel special and always tried hard to show me the animals I hoped to see. My trips were always very well organised. I keep unforgettable memories of all the trips I have made, in particular of my very last trip to the mountain gorillas in the Bwindi National Park.
I would recommend this travel agent to everyone who plans to visit the national parks in Uganda!

Incredible honeymoon in the pearl of afric
5/5

We have plannend our fantastic honeymoon together with Innocent Manda! Communication by email was easy, Innocent responded quickly and completely to al my questions. In kampala we met Innocent and Bosco, our driver. Bosco was great: a nice guy, trustful, polite and he probably knows everything about uganda and the wildlife!our 4x4 was spacious and we had a sunroof to see the annimals the best.bosco took very good care about the car, he even washed the car often.
Thanks again Innocent for our memorable honeymoon!you take really took care of everything!i certainly would recomment Pearls Afric Tours and Travel to everybody.

Ps:we could also do paymenttransactions by a dutch banc, what is very easy and trustful and doesn't need additional costs for the moneytransfer for the europeans.
