I wanted to travel to Uganda for Gorillas, it was very difficult for me to get a fair budget since I was travelling alone... I contacted Mamalandsafaris and from the first reply I saw positivity as I started getting profession advise on how I could get the trip smoothly done to identify with my interests like cats, primates, gorillas and birding.,
I had several communication with Tony and the turning point was when he offered to find a group to join. Finally I joined 2 others making it still private with the two girls..
My trip was made possible after getting the right budget and someone I was exchanging mails with becoming our Guide... Tony has mastered his country and during our 15 days, instead of a safari it was a journey with the most wonderful experience. Tony connects well with the people we met in restaurants, lodges, rangers and in local villages he bonded us to homes and families! The safari was booked mainly for big mammal and Gorillas but we got more than what we paid for, a real nature lover and a fantastic birding guide with deep knowledge in the ecology, sounds, habitats of the birds in Uganda! every break we had he opened our eyes to the surrounding. The accommodation was a mix with hot shower, good location more than our expectations. He is very flexible helping to plan the day with the most of possibilities.. He is a joker, fun all the time. At the end of the trip he helped me visit the Nyirangongo crater in Congo. I would recommend Mamalandsafaris to anyone planning a visit..

An excellent tour company

We used Safari Bookings when we searched for tour operators with office in Uganda and who had budget tours. We contacted 40-50 of them but we decided that only a handful of them were of interest to us. We wanted a reliable company with membership in AUTO, active on Facebook with many likes, which also had a good webpage and a lot of good reviews on TripAdvisor. Two of the companies gave us good prices, Mamaland Safaris was one of them. We decided to use Mamaland Safaris since they were a little cheaper. We are from Sweden and we found out that Anna, the owner's wife who we had been in contact with, was also from Sweden which was very reassuring. Another reason to why we selected Mamaland Safaris was that we didn't have to send the safari payment from Sweden for the 3-days Murchison Falls safari since it was a budget safari. We could pay when we arrived to Uganda a couple of weeks before the safari started.

We booked a budget safari which didn't include an air-conditioned car, we maybe had to spend the first night in a lodge-tent and the last night we should sleep in a dormitory. Anna told us however that she would try, if possible, to get us a safari car with air-conditioned and a cottage the first night. We ended up with a really luxury safari. We got an air-conditioned car. Our guide and driver, called Richard, was very nice. He had been working as a guide during 11 years and spoke very good English. We spent the first night in a lovely, and in our opinion very luxury lodge, called Heritage Safari lodge. We should sleep in a dorm at Budongo Eco Lodge the last night but we were the only people who spent that night there so we probably got their best cottage instead. Everything was so good.

Our guide, Richard, fetched us at our hotel in Kampala early in the morning the first safari day. The first thing he told us was that his wife had given birth to a girl that night. He couldn't be with her since he had to be with us three days. That is a really reliable guide, don't you agree!

Richard gave us a really lovely and unforgettable safari. The first day he parked the car five meters from seven lions which rested in the shadow of a small tree and that was only the beginning of our perfect safari.

We of course really recommend Mamaland Safaris and we would use them again if we return. I better say when we return since Uganda is a very lovely country.

Everything we dreamed of

When we started planning our trip to Uganda, we asked many places. We chose Mamaland Safaris because of the rapid, positive and competent answers we got. And we chose right!
We saw everything we had dreamed of - and more. We saw mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, tree-climbing lions, shoebill, giraffes, hippos, elephants and much more.
We enjoyed it all in safe, inspiring and amusing company of our always caring driver and guide Paul.
Thanks to him, everything went as desired. all practical isuses he had mastered, so we could concentrate on enjoying and experiencing animals, humans, nature and culture of this beautiful country.
Do you want a customized trip to Uganda, please contact Mama Country Safaris. They know how to do it!

Professional company, experienced guide, attention to customer's needs.

They were extremely serious and professional. I had to cancel the trip last minute and they were flexible to reschedule it the following weekend. As for the safari program they had their own proposal but happy and flexible to adjust to my needs (if you say you want to stay in a different hotel or do additional activities other than those proposed by them it's no problem). The guide was experienced (former park ranger) and always happy to answer questions about animals, the country, the culture ecc. He was also very helpful, proactive and practical.

Great birding safari

I spend one of the best hollidays of my life in the safari called "Uganda birding Paradise". This safari consists in 15 days visiting some of the most important hotspots for birding in Uganda: Mabamba swamps, Lake Mburo, Bwindi, Queen Elizabeth Park, Semuliki, Budongo Forest, Kalinzu Forest, Murchinson Falls, etc. I travelled by most of the southwest and western part of the country and I visited several kind of hábitats: swamps, Savannah, forests, etc. I sighted more than 420 bird species, with very interesting findings, like the shoebill, the African Green broadbill, the Black-casqued Wattled hornbill, the Crested Barbet, the Ruwenzori batis, the Papyrus gonolek, the Grauer's Swamp-warbler, etc In addition, I also observed more tan 40 species of mammals, including gorillas, chimps, lions, leopards, rhinos, buffalos, elefants, giraffes, etc. I can hardly imagine a better place in the world to see more biodiversity in a short time.

I was guided in all my journey by Tony and Paul. Two outstanding field guides and even more outstanding persons. I am sure that part of my excellent experience in Uganda was thanks to their company and help. They arranged all the accomodations, meals, permisons and excursions.

In sum, I strongly recommend to anyone to visit Uganda with mamaland safaris. You will not be dissapointed.

An Incredible Journey!

My wife and I contacted Mamaland Safaris via the internet and over the course of a couple of months worked out a very detailed safari plan. Anna was very easy to work with as we built this once in a lifetime visit to Uganda. We were able to visit all parts of the country we desired and were able to experience an incredible variety of wildlife, flora, geography, and people along the way. Michael was our guide and did a fabulous job. He kept us safe on rough roads and knew where to go to find the most interesting animals, people and scenery. His knowledge of animals (including birds) was extraordinary. We had a terrific time and feel like we have made new friends with the Mamaland Safaris' staff and have already recommended them highly to several friends who are interested in visiting East Africa.

Friendly, Considerate service

The accommodation was top notch, loved the first night staying next to the Nile in an incredibly picturesque 'permanent style camp site'.

Tour guide was extremely friendly, food provided was excellent, however, more information on the animals would've been good, as well as longer safari times.

Safari in Uganda only with Mamaland Safaris!

We did a 6-day safari to Queen Elisabeth, Bwindi, Lake Bunyonyi and Lake Mburo. Our guide Paul was absolutely amazing. He did everything for us seeing as much animals as possible (two times lions). Our expectations were exceeded. He is a very friendly and reliable person with a deep knowledge about the nature of Uganda. The contact before was great, too. Anna responded every time quickly and made every wish possible.
All in all we had an unforgettable trip and would choose Mamaland Safaris over and over again.
