An adventure of a lifetime!

Mamaland Safaris was thourough ans speedy when communicating with me. They were wonderful to work with. The safari itself was incredible. Our guide, Obed, was so knowledgeable and he had an eagle eye for spotting the animals. My sons and I loved every minute of the trip.

A friend for life

I travelled to Uganda last september in order to supervise the construction of a school in a rural area and decided to take advantage of my stay in the country to go on a couple of safaris with my boyfriend. I am a very organized person, so, even though I didn't know the country at all, I decided to design my own safaris from home in Spain. First, I had to choose the company I would hire. Of course, I wanted a local company, so I checked some Ugandan websites and read some good reviews about Mamaland and Tony (he owns the company with his wife Anna). Without hesitation, I got in contact with them and they organized two safaris, just for the two of us, exactly the way I wanted, even though I was super specific about the fact that they should drop us in some rural village in the middle of nowhere.

Our first guide was Tony, "the bird-lover", who can always spot a lion sleeping on the grass, no matter how far he is. He's super patient and basically knows everything about both animals (particularly, birds) and Uganda by heart (although he also organizes safaris in other countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania or Congo). He's also the nicest person ever and really funny (or, at least, that's what he thinks [take that, Tony!]). Oh, and he has the best taste in music. So, if you travel with him, you'll surely have a great time. Besides, he's a really good guy. After our first safari, I had a slight problem. Going back to Kampala from the rural village where Tony had dropped us, the matatu (a minibus for around 14 people) driver decided to stop the vehicle somewhere in the city, tell us to get off and drive away with our suitcase. Don't suffer for us, my boyfriend immediately jumped on a boda-boda (motorbike-taxi) Tom-Cruise style and chased him until he got it back ("Oh, I hadn't realized, sorry!" OF COURSE NOT...). The thing is that we had no idea where we where or how to get back to Jinja, our final destination. So... WE WENT TO TONY'S HOUSE. Really, we just took another boda-boda and appeared at Tony's door like... "Hello, Tony. Um... WE NEED HELP". And he helped us. He took us to the centre of Kampala and showed us the way. So... I'M FOREVER GRATEFUL TO HIM FOR THAT.

Our second guide was Richard, "serenity man". Tony got sick on our first safari during our visit to the gorillas and has actually stayed sick for a really long time afterwards (sorry for that!), so he couldn't accompany us on our second safari. However, Richard did, and he was also great. Richard is sooo knowledgeable and sooo calm; he really makes you feel there is nothing in this world he doesn't know or have completely under control (even when flocks of tse-tse flies try to eat you alive). Also, if you travel with Richard, you will have the most amazing conversations, besides an amazing time.

That said, Tony has for sure become a friend who I know will be there for life, so... travel with Mamaland and enjoy The Pearl of Africa to the fullest! And if you want an additional reason, take this one: supporting Ugandan local businesses supports Uganda.

Wonderful holidays and breathtaking Safaris in Uganda with Mamalands Safaris

Communication per E-mail and service were quick and perfekt. All our expectation were full reached. We had an excellent guide and driver,
he has a great knowledge on Birds, Butterflys, spots all the animals around and can give details about their life. The service , fruit and water in the car, breaks to lunch and coffee time was always perfect.
The organisation of the whole trip was perfect and all the lodges and camps were a pleasure to stay in.
The Gorilla tracking and Chim tracking were a particularly beautiful experience.
From us 100% recommendation.

A journey to remember

In December 2017 me and my family made a trip to Uganda. Of course we chose Mamaland Safaris as our tour guide. We had Mamaland as well on our first trip to Uganda & Tanzania about 7 years ago. I can guarantee you, when I am going to visit Uganda again, I am definietly going with Mamaland Safari. The guides knows the areas, they know the people and they are very flexible. Is there anything you would like to do that is not on the schedule? Then Mamaland will most likely fix it for you so that you will have the ultimate experience. The guides are very friendly and after the trip you're guaranteed to have met new friends.

If you are traveling to east Africa, make sure you pick Mamaland Safaris!

Excellent attention

Tony helped us at all times to get the most cheap lodgings and transfers, he was the one who reserved us the permits from Ruhija. Josh was our guide and he was always kind and willing. We had an amazing time, it's worth the experience

Uganda 19 days: Mamaland safaris is a very reliable and experienced agency for tailor made safaris

Our 19 day trip through Uganda was wonderful thanks to good organization Mamaland Safaris, owner Tony and guide -driver Moses.
We planned a trip for several months, all our wishes were taken into consideration, and expectations were met and even exceeded. Communication with Mamamland Safaris was quick, we always received comprehensive answers to all the questions. Our guide-driver Moses is a really good man, an experienced guide and a reliable driver. Service and food in logdes was good. At the safaris we could see and take pictures of a huge variety of animals, Gorilla and Golden Monkey Trekig were an unforgettable experience.
I recommend Mamaland Safaris to all travelers who want to travel through Uganda.

Mamaland provided us with a truly unforgettableexperience

Mamaland's website looked vary interesting and did it's job to bring me in as a customer. Though not the least expensive offering, it was well worth it. The accommodations were excellent: Clean, comfortable, and generally well maintained.
The Safari itself was really made by our guide. He consistently demonstrated his highly customer focused view of his job. Always ready to answer a question or point our something interesting, he was truly wonderful.

I would not hesitate to recommend Mamaland to others and will certainly consider a return trip.
