Personal service great trip
The guide picked me up at my hotel about an hours drive from the embarkation point. We had a wonderful conversation about life in Uganda, its history, current conditions etc. I really enjoyed the personal service. The boat staff were also very friendly and informative. I enjoyed my time at the chimpanzee sanctuary. Then the Prime Safari guide picked me up and had a most enjoyable trip back to my hotel with a stop to purchase crafts. I really appreciated all the personal attention.

Very good experience at QE Park and Bwindi
My husband and kids (18 and 20 years old) did a five-day tour, luxury level, to Queen Elizabeth Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. The trip was well organized (like clockwork!), accommodations were pleasant and in some cases extraordinary (e.g., the hotel in Bunyoni). Our driver/guide, Denis, was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, and he was an excellent driver under trying circumstances on unimproved roads. Great value for money!
If you are planning a trip, it's wise to get full information about the length of the drives and the quality of the roads, as well as the type of vehicle (e.g., does it have functional air conditioning?). Setting appropriate expectations about these things makes a big difference.
Uganda Safari Experience Par Excellence
We were recommended Prime Safaris and they lived up to all expectations. Cate helped us shape and customise our trip and kept us completely upto speed with all arrangements. Our tour ran very smoothly. Our two guides Mark and Gerrard added so much knowledge of Uganda and its wildlife which greatly enriched our experience. They went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly and were always available and on time. Their friendly and approachable manner made the whole experience much more fun and personal.

Best tour guides
Prime Safari made our vacation the most memorable one to date. They took care of us from Uganda all the way to Tanzania. Every step of the way, with our own guide. Very polite, friendly, and informative. They made everything about the trip smooth and easy. We also knew what to expect next, and they were always on time for pickups, drop-offs, you name it. Highly recommend this company to any traveling through Africa. We saw all of the big 5 and then some in Tanzania. Also got to hang out with the gorilla families in Uganda. Best vacation experience I've ever had.

We had such an incredible experience with Prime Safaris! Both of our guides were so knowledgeable and friendly and went above and beyond for our group. Vincent and Mark felt like they became part of our family and we were so sad to say goodbye. Our safari experience at Bwindi was out of this world spectacular and we also loved our trips to Chimp Island and Jinja. Wow. Thank you so much Prime Safari for your planning, communication, service and all fun! I will be recommending your company to every person I hear travelling to Uganda!

Incredible adventure, everything we wanted!
Prime Safaris was absolutely incredible, even from the initial communication. They were prompt in responses were willing to change things time and time again while we were deciding what to do. They were patient and were helpful with recommendations. My own 2 favorite parts of the trip were the things they recommended that I did not even know about!
The trip started with Denis (our guide) picking us up from a friends home in a residential part of Makindye. He was friendly and on-time and we really enjoyed our time with him. He was interested in getting to know us and was always giving us great information on the things we saw. He kept us fed and was really a lot of fun!
Prime Safaris recommended we do the Chimpanzee sanctuary in Budongo Forest as well as the Rhino sanctuary in Ziwa. Both were absolutely incredible on foot up close experiences that I will never forget. They were incredible neat locations and both had a good cause worth our support. Primes Safari's also honored our request to do multiple and to take boat ride on the Nile up to Murchison Falls. They organized everything. We just had to show up and take pictures!
Sleeping accommodation options were given and we chose what we though best fit our budget and it was phenomenal. we just picked one and they handled everything else.
One thing I want to really express is just how easy Prime Safari's made the trip for us. I originally had planned to not use a company (since I had lived in Uganda for about 2 years prior to our trip), I planned to plan everything myself, Then I started to learn about wildlife permits other things that if I had missed may have put a huge whole in our tip. So I elected to use a company and they took care of everything. I just showed up to enjoy. So fun so great!

If you want to visit Uganda go with Prime Safaris!!!
I checked several tour programs and several different Companies, and we decided to go with Prime Safaris because:
1) Cate was really flexible and organized a taylor-made tour for the 2 of us
2) Cate always answered immediately to my e-mails (and thay were a lot)
3) The price of Prime Safaris was one of the less expensive of the market
and at the end we were very happy, since the organization was absolutely perfect, and Joseph, our guide (he is definetely not just a driver) was a true problem-solving man; he is a very good person, and we loved every minute with him.
We decided to pay for the Gorilla Habituation Permit, which costs more than the double of a normal permit, but allows you to stay with the gorillas for 4 hours instead of only 1.
Well, I would suggest everybody to make this experience: it's true, it costed the half of our budget, but to be so close to the gorilla is such an amazing experience that, if after 1 hour I should have gone, I would have cried.... :-)
Thanks Joseph, Cate and Simon for this unforgettable experience!!!!

9 phantastic days in Ugnada with Prime Safari
A lovely experience in Uganda. Excellent driver (Joseph), friendly and super supported team in the Office (Cate was leading for us). We stayed in 5 hotels and all of them were perfect. Although my 1400 photos were stolen the day we landed back in Geneva (hence I can't attach any to confirm my words), we will keep excellent memories of our visit in Uganda and I feel like doing it again, I will for sure use Prime Safari to organize it. THANKS

Excellent safari tour around Bwindi Forest, Queen Elisabeth Park and Kibale Forest !
Travelling alone, I was a bit anxious about the tour but I found it very safe especially because of my very kind guide/driver Mark ! I thank him so much.
Very good safari tour regarding the lodges, the game drives, the timing ( 6 days tour ).
Thank to Cate for the quick answers while preparing my travel !
Wonderful Uganda !
