My #1 Choice
I have traveled to many countries, and my biggest concern is always being taken advantage of (financially) or getting incredibly lost from one major location to the next. Speke Uganda allowed us to truly experience our trip with no concerns regarding the nitty gritty. We could enjoy each day with the confidence we would get where we needed to be, learn what we needed to learn, see some incredibe things, and become immersed in the culture. Every employee we interacted with was knowledgeable, friendly, and created a safe and inviting atmosphere. I loved being able to sit back and just enjoy this amazing trip. Thank you to Africano and the crew!

Speke Uganda: reliable, excellent choice for the best safari experience, top guides too!
We booked our trip with Speke Uganda for 2020 and finally made it in 2022! All the park permits booked for 2020 were honored in 2022. Our itinerary ran smoothly, and our excellent guide Africano briefed us each night on the plan for the next day. Africano worked very hard to ensure that we saw the animals we planned for. Special thanks for a close up encounter with a leopard! The accommodation was good, the food excellent and everyone we met very welcoming. Getting close to Gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda was a special couple of days, but each day brought a different experience. When we had spare time a local guide was found to take us on some really interesting long walks, the Nile Congo way was especially memorable. Overall the trip was excellent, really good value for money and a very special experience, thoroughly recommended.

Wonderful Uganda trip
I should start by saying that we had a fantastic guide - Charles - who was amazing from day one. He was patient, knowledgeable (he knew every bird!) and knew there national parks inside out. The accommodation was great, every place had something special, and we were grateful too that Charles tried accommodate us having local means to the extend possible (we really wanted to try Ugandan food). The service in all lodges was very good. And the national parks were of course superb. Gorilla trekking is so special, we were sad it only took 50 minutes to find them as the forest is so beautiful! Amazing trip

One of the best holidays that we have ever been on, it had everything and our guide was fabulous.
Everything was absolutely first rate: great lodges, great food, fabulous guide, fantastic scenery, the organisation ran like clockwork, and the country is a special place. Highly recommended.

Professional to a tee, the entire team do everything humanly possible to make your holiday a dream
At the outset of our planning (extended to 3years due to Covid-19) we fully expected the primate trekking aspects of our trip, both chimpanzee and gorilla, to be astonishing and unforgettable. And they were. What we not prepared for was the sheer beauty of the natural landscapes in Uganda. This completely exceeded our expectations. From the awesome power of Murchison Falls to the majestic landscapes of the Kasenda Crater Lakes, the endless view across the Nile River and of course Lake Victoria. We have travelled to more than 10 African countries and Uganda has to be among the most beautiful and alluring of them all.
David Mukwaya from Speke Uganda Holidays was our guide. From start to finish, David could not have done more to make our holiday as relaxed and smooth running as it possible could. From our evening briefings, never failing to be on time and to schedule, to the gift of a meal on the shores of Lake Victoria, even man-handling our luggage at every turn, he was the perfect gentleman. Intelligent, well-informed and polite, we discussed many topics with David during our 2 weeks together including the wildlife, how people live, how Uganda is developing, and many many more. We grew close during our two weeks together, miss him and hope to see him again sometime (may in a combined Uganda-Rwanda adventure).

I don't think it is possible to get a better Africa experience than by this Uganda holiday
If you like watching animals, I can highly recommend this tour through the various national parks of Uganda. There was always a change from safaris to boat tours and jungle walks ... absolutely amazing! It was very well organized. We even got the chance of additional things to do, in fact a swamp walk and shoe bill watching. The tour guide was very friendly and pleasant. We could absolutely rely on him in every situation, f.e. when roads were an adventure itself. The lodges were very pleasant. In my personal view they were even more luxury than I really needed. Of course it was not a cheap travel, but I never had a feeling that it wasn't worth the money. I really consider to come back once just to see more of this beautiful country.
An African Gem!
The tour was great and compared favourably with holidays we have taken in Africa in over 40 years of travelling. The journeys between lodges were sometimes long and bumpy, but enabled us to see many aspects the country, whilst travelling through communities and countryside. The wildlife was plentiful with sightings of the big 5, a close up of the endangered shoebill and plentiful sightings of one of our favourites-the warthog!!! The accommodation was extremely good with wonderful staff. The whole holiday was a great experience and Uganda needs more marketing!! It is a great and friendly country.

Incredible tour operator - 5 stars!
Took an 11 day tour of Uganda with Speke Uganda Holidays in June 2022. I cannot say enough how great it was. The company was incredibly responsive throughout the whole planning process (which stretched 3 years due to COVID) going above and beyond to make our tour absolutely incredible. We had several issues with flights being cancelled and changed, Speke was very accommodative making sure we got the most of our time in Uganda. Our driver/guide Tony was very good and provided everything we needed at any notice. The lodges were very nice and exceeded our expectations. This is one of the larger tour companies in Uganda, you can rest assured when booking that this is an experienced operator.
