Doing a gorilla tracking was one of the main reasons travelling to Uganda. The communication with Encounter Africa Safaris was just perfect. Prompt responses to all our questions, very flexible with our wishes, easy online-payment system through credit card and mostly reliable. Die Broadbill Camp in Bwindi which was included in the package was a great place to stay.
We would highly recommend this agency (run by ugandans!!)
The communication was excellent since I inquired about the tour. They are prompt in response and gave me nothing to worry about. The arrival was excellent even though I arrived at 2 in the morning. Our guide was great throughtout, accomodating every single need. His knowledge was great too, helping us learn a lot more about Uganda and the wildlife it offers.

TV production recce to Uganda
I've worked with Encounter Africa Safaris as local partner for a Dutch TV production. We did the research trip in November 2016. Edson and Torbert did the pre-production and took care of all logistic arrangements, as well as scouting locations/stories/people. It was a well organised research trip and I left the country with enough options to fill 3 episodes, if needed. Tolbert travelled with me during the research trip and was fun the have around. He took care of all the arrangements and was punctual and everything one would expect from a producer/driver. I would strongly recommend them for your visit (business or pleasure) to Uganda.

We had contact with Chris for planning, he is quick, very responsive and kind. Once all planned we met with Joseph, our driver and guide who made the trip a great experience. I am a bit complicated person myself but Joseph was kind, patient, all the time worried if we were ok and happy. He is easygoing, fun and made the trip so pleasant that we felt like at home. We miss him already, and of course Uganda! Will definitely go back and keep on exploring the country with him!

We had a wonderful honeymoon experience with Encounter Africa Safaris. Chris was professional in all correspondence leading up to the trip & put our minds at ease. From the moment we arrived at the airport, everything was exactly as they'd outlined (and better!!). Our guide, Joseph, was knowledgeable, flexible, funny, and great to be around (which is important, since we spent many hours of our trip in the car with him). He made us feel like he was there to give us the best experience possible, and was happy to adapt to any of our preferences. We would absolutely use this company again & recommend to friends. Thank you so much Encounter, especially Chris & Joseph. We will never forget our time in Uganda, it was once in a lifetime!!

Our driver Phennie was very helpful with our questions, not only informative about the wildlife but also helped us to plan our next step of our journey once we left him.
The communication was quite good before the trip also, although we would have appreciated the option to pay online or credit card!

Very well-organised trip where I totally trusted the guide/driver
Encounter Africa Safaris organised a trip for me and my mother, which was one of the best trips of my life. We explored the fantastic landscapes and animal life of Uganda, and it was all very well-planned in order for us to see as much as possible. Tolbert was our guide and driver, and we really went along very well. He has good knowledge of the animal and bird life and he was always gladly explaining what we saw around us; making sure that we were having a good time. He was always thinking one step ahead and made sure the timetable was followed. The safari car that he drove was very luxurious and felt safe, even on some very bumpy roads. I would warmly recommend Encounter Africa Safaris, and Tolbert as a guide especially.
