Great experience for travelers on a budget

Safaris can be quite expensive, but if you're traveling on a budget and still want some quality wildlife experiences Mamaland Safaris will deliver.

Our guide Dona made sure our three days in Queen Elisabeth Park were action-packed with still enough time to rest in between. His skill in game spotting made sure we were able to see almost every animal on our list without looking too long. We only missed the elusive leopard.

The Pumba Lodges where we stayed were basic, but clean. The staff was incredibly friendly and were able to cook up some delicious food.

Absolutely recommended!

Mamaland Safaris is a great tour operator

We really enjoyed the Safari though Uganda and Rwanda with Mamaland Safaris. Our guide and driver, Moses, was extraordinary. With his skills we have been able to find many safari animals. As well he helped us very good with any questions and obstacles on the way. Since we haven't had so much budget, we were is most of the cases very happy with the accommandations. All great, thank you!

Mamaland Safaris are the best!

I had a great trip with Mamaland Safaris! It already started with a nice welcome when I arrived. I stayed for 1 night at the place of the owners ( a very nice and friendly couple :-)) and after a night sleep and a very nice breakfast the safari started. Throughout the trip I stayed at perfect accommodations at very nice places with superb views. Mamaland Safaris arranged it very well! I had a lot of nice gamedrives and everything was possible.....if I wanted to change things (routes, extra gamedrives, other parks, etc) it was possible too and they arranged it for me on the spot. My guide was also great and had a lot of knowledge about the country and all the animals in it. All and all I had a fantastic trip and I will recommend Mamaland Safaris to everyone!!

Great and unforgettable time in Uganda with Mamalandsafaris

If you want to feel a little touch of Africa- so you should book with Mamalandsafaris Uganda, despite the fact that you always will be a tourist and be treatet as a tourist. Moses Wabwire, our guide, read every wish from our eyes and was always polite, helpful and respectful. In addition he acted very professionally and his profound knowledge about Uganda, its nature and people was a treasure for us tourists. We loved all places and accomodation like Kidepo NP, Murchison Falls, Budongo Eco Lodge, Pumba Lodge, Apoka Hostel Bandas (very lovely place with animals coming very close like elefants, zebras, warthogs etc.- great great experience!!!Bwindy NP was one of the highlights when we met with mountain gorillas deep in the rain forest. Great accomodation there as well- Gorilla Mist Camp...Too nice to be real...Great views.. Unforgettable. Despite all of that beauty we should never forget how people live there, what their life is like and do somehow...By the way.. we always felt safe and welcome...Friendly service everywhere.....While writing this I could start packing again.....

A fantastic birding trip to western Uganda with Tony at Mamaland.

Tony and everyone at Mamaland are organised, efficient and friendly. Tony is an attentive and knowledgeable guide. We had a great time in his company.

Perfect 2-week private safari tour through Uganda!

We (couple, 31 and 35 years old) did a 2-week safari through Uganda with Mamaland Safaris. We started from Entebbe and spent the first day at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, drove all the way up to the northern Kidepo Valley National Park and went on to Murchison Falls National Park, did the Chimp Habituation in Kibale Forrest, visited Queen Elizabeth National Park and the Ishasha Plains and finally went on the Gorilla Habituation in Bwindi Forrest before going back to Entebbe.

The tour was perfectly organized and I would do it again the same way. Approximately three months prior our vacation, we contacted Anna from Mamaland Safaris who responded immediately and set up a great schedule containing all the things we wanted to see and do. She was very flexible in changing accommodations and routings at our request. She also sent us copies of the (highly expensive) Gorilla permits in advance. We always had a very good feeling concerning this tour operator.

Upon arrival, we spent one night in a guesthouse in Entebbe and were welcomed by our wonderful and passionate tour guide Moses the next morning. He took an amazingly great care of us during the whole tour and shared his incredible knowledge about the country and its wildlife. Due to our routing, we had some very long drives, but always felt really save in our car (4X4 with pop-up roof) and enjoyed even the bumpy and dusty roads. All lodges and guesthouses were booked and we did not experience any problems there. Also, all activities (game drives, spotlight night drives, boat safaris, chimp habituation and gorilla habituation) went per our itinerary. During our tour, we learned a lot about the country's culture and people and enjoyed the excellent hospitality everywhere. We were also really impressed by the variety of Uganda's landscapes and wildlife and had numerous unforgettable and very close encounters with the animals. It was really one highlight chasing the other!

Mamaland Safaris is an excellent tour operator. I strongly recommend them and would definitely go on a tour with them again!

I will be back!

Have had such nice experience during last years safari celebrating my birthday! It was a private tour for four people. South west Uganda, Lk Mburo, Bushara island, Gorilla trekking, QENP, Murchison falls and some more. Had a first smaller safari with a group of 15 people in 2011 combining Uganda Tanzania, so this will be third time returning. Am right now planning a trip late december 2017 with my teenage kids and mother. Really looking forward to it and can warmly recommend Mamaland Safaris!

We had a guide who really knew everything about the nature AND culture of Uganda. Very appreciated

We got a full and proper information about the safari both before and during the trip. Everything went smooth taking account to our six grandchildren we brought (8-15 years) and their parents.
We believe we got as much as possible out of the safari.

Amazing honeymoon - Uganda Tanzania - 3 weeks private tour

Contacted Tony from Mamaland after a positive reference from my brother and reading only but positive reviews about them online .. and yeah they're amazing , they gave us the honeymoon we've dreamed of !!

Honestly, looking back now, we would do exactly the same honeymoon: same company, same route, same accomodations, ... not change a thing ! That says it all, no?

Tony is a fantastic, warm, friendly, flexible and passionate tour-guide, bird-lover and football-addict with an astonishing knowledge of nature and culture, not only from the countries they offer tours for, but also from many other countries in the world !

The contact through mail went very fluent. Tony proposed a route based on our interests and available days and we were able to adapt both the route as the accomodations, based on things we've read online and from other tours.

Of course, Tanzania (Ngorongoro and Serengeti) has amazing NP's, unique in their type and is a must see! But Uganda as a country has suprised us very positively as well, especially the people's hospitality and the variation of activities and sights throughout the country (rafting on the Nile, seeing the big 5 in Murchison Falls, doing walks with birds and monkeys in the crater area, seeing the gorilla's in Bwini, etc etc). Yep, a true undiscovered pearl!

Thank you Tony for organising it all and thank you Charles and Hussain for guiding us around !

Joachim and Loes
