Well organised, great experience, beautiful accommodations

My girlfriend and I did a five day tour to the Crater Lakes, Bigodi Swamp and Queen Elisabeth National Park with Mamaland Safaris. We first wanted to do a three day safari, but changed our minds. Edrisa was easy to contact by mail, and was very helpful in expanding our itinerary! Moses was our guide on the tour, whom we, coincidently, already knew from a previous tour to Murchison Falls. He was everything we could’ve wished for as a guide; patient, knowledgeable and experienced, with lots of enthusiasm for Uganda and its wildlife. We were picked up from Kampala, right on time, and we left for the Isunga Lodge, near Kibale NP. This lodge was absolutely fabulous, with a breath-taking view over the Kibale forest. We saw many beautiful birds and monkeys on our guided walks in the surrounding environment and had a great stay. We then went to the Pumba Safari Cottages, right at the edge of QE NP, and went on two game drives, where we saw elephants at a few meters distance, lions, giraffes, buffalos, hippos, crocodiles, different antelopes and many birds! On the last day, we went to the Kalinzu forest and saw, after a long trek through the beautiful forest, two chimps in the wild! In short, we had a fabulous trip, saw more than we could have wished for and everything was very well organised. Thanks again to Moses and Mamaland Safaris for a wonderful experience that we will cherish for a long!

Great Safari !

We did the 15 days Magic of Nature Tour and enjoyed every minute of it!
As my husband and myself were travelling alone (no group) in the good company of our driver/guide Paul, there still was some possibility to sometimes personalize the program, which was great.
We have seen the big five (!), chimps, gorilla's in Bwindi and Rhino's in Ziwa Sanctuary.
It was an amazing trip, reliable driver (thank you for everything Paul), solid jeep.
Also very good communication with Tony, owner of the company, as far as planning of the trip etc is concerned.
I would definitely recommend Mamaland Safaris for an unforgettable holiday in Uganda !

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.

Blew me away

Tony stayed with my school-based service trip for three weeks, from Kampala to Kisoro, back through Queen Elizabeth and Murchison to Ziwa. We had set up the itinerary well in advance, and the only question mark in our trip was where we would stop at Queen Elizabeth. We wound our way through the banana trees and scrub to his truly remarkable guest house. My students' jaws dropped. It is really hard to compete with the beauty of Kisoro, but Pumba Lodge did it. Imagine half a dozen American teenagers glued to the infinite view to the horizon. It was breathtaking.

Watkinson School's Service Learning Trip

From the moment I contacted Mamaland Safaris from the United States months before my school's trip to Uganda, Mamaland and Tony in particular, were incredibly helpful. Throughout our journey from Kampala to Kisoro where we worked in several schools, to Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls National Parks, the service went far beyond merely driving us to destinations. Tony helped explain the history, culture and society to our group of teenage students. With humor and a beyond encyclopedic knowledge of the birds and wildlife, we fell in love with Uganda's people and wildlife!

Add in some magical moments and surprises like the Pumba Safari Cottages overlooking Queen Elizabeth National Park, it was a transformative experience for me and my students that would not have been possible without Mamaland's personal touches. Logistically, the planning was smooth and clear. My school was more than satisfied with the arrangements. And the problem solving around the minor change of plans we made mid-journey were all handled well.

I cannot recommend Mamaland Safaris more! We will be back in March 2015 with Mamaland leading they way!

An Adventure Trip that Got Better and Better as the Story Unfolded

Our trip to Uganda with Mamaland was the best. From the very beginning at the time of booking all our e-mail questions were answered immediately, in a friendly and very efficient way. The trip went like clockwork from being picked up at the airport (all of us coming in at different times from different countries) to extremely well planned and organised journeys each day. The lodges we stayed in were extremely comfortable, clean and cosy - some were more luxurious than others - but that just added to the delightful surprise each day.
The trip itself was planned so that each day offered more excitement than the last, culminating in the magical experience of Gorilla Tracking on the last day.
Our tour guide, Medi, was just excellent - calm, so polite, friendly and with a lovely sense of humour. I cannot recommend Mamaland and Medi enough - thank you for a wonderful time. It was the trip of a lifetime for me.
