GREAT TRAVEL AND GREAT JOB
We were in Uganda with a group of Mexican photographers, we had the pleasure of having Karim and Balam as guides. We had a pleasant experience of the place, the nature and what we were able to observe was spectacular, that hand in hand with the excellent service of both guides, always attentive and attentive to our needs, with great knowledge of the species we observed. We are very satisfied with the service as a whole. Congratulations, you have a great team.

Amazing Tour and Fantastic service
The whole process from booking to the tour itself went really smoothly with Home to Africa Tours.
Our guide was Derrick and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. He was brilliant, courteous, thoughtful and a lot of fun :)
He went above and beyond especially as i was not very well at one point and he made arrangements that i was still able to take part in everything. The Gorillas themselves are stunning to see and it is such an unforgettable experience. The silverback was so impressive.
We went on the 3 Day Bwindi Tour and i would definitely recommend it to anyone. We also loved the stop over on the way back at Lake Bunyoni where we stayed on one of the islands for the night, that was the perfect end to our trip.
Thanks so much Derrick and Home To Africa Tours.

An adventure in Africa we’ll never forget
What an incredible holiday! The team at Home to Africa excelled themselves, delivering a tour of the Masai Mara and surrounding area that we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.
From crossing the Masai plains, to a Hippo-filled boat tour and cycling Hell’s Gate national park, our guide, Ken, took care of us from start to finish, creating a superb itinerary. With plenty of off-roading (great fun, but plenty bumpy!), we managed to see everything, from Hippos to Hyenas, Lion cubs to Leopards. The team had a wealth of knowledge about the animals and the area, which our daughter was able to soak up, whilst enjoying the hospitality of an incredibly welcoming group of people.
If you want a private safari that gets you up close and personal with incredible wildlife, whilst soaking up the African culture, we can’t recommend these guys highly enough! This is definitely one for the bucket list.

Uganda Uganda and Home to Africa Have It All!
If you only have time to visit one country it should be Uganda and you should use a local Ugandan company called Home to Africa. Our trip was delayed by two years due to Covid but Hedmond (in the main office) was so patient as we rearranged the trip twice. All done via email. Uganda has it all from primates (gorillas, chimps, golden monkeys-we recommend all three!) to the big 5 (rhinos in their sanctuary and Benon even spotted a leopard!) to local villages and stunning natural beauty (eg-Murchison Falls). We traveled by van with many roads challenging but still would not change a thing as we were able to see how the locals have to manage on a daily basis. There are options to travel by plane. Benon, our driver/guide, was an expert driver and so knowledgeable about the people, places and animals/birds. He would stop for local fruit, roasted banana, corn, cassava. We even found fresh gooseberries! Please ask for him if you use HTA. You can design your own trip with your own driver deciding on the level of the accommodations. It is a bit scary to learn to send a bank transfer for payments but the cost of your trip might be half that of a UK or US company and all the money goes to the local economy.

Had a Fantastic trip
I had an amazing trip to Uganda.
The trip was planned in detail to perfection by Derrick.
I started the trip under the guidance of Balam .He was very knowledgeable and knew intricately the details of parks I had visited. He guided me to make the trip memorable. The accommodation selected was very good and I had a comfortable stay. My requirement of Vegetarian food was also met to my complete satisfaction.
I would like to thank the Home to Africa team to make my trip memorable.
The trip started with Ziwa Rhino sanctuary . Had a amazing Bird walk in Lugago swamp where we saw about 30 bird species. Then we had Rhino walk to see Rhinos at close quarters.
The Murchison Falls was amazing. The Water fall view at the Top of the falls should not be missed. We saw Lion, Leopards, Herds of Elephants and Buffaloes and many Antelope species. The highlight of the Trip was plenty of Giraffes. We also did a boat ride in the River to see many Hippo pods, crocodiles and animals coming to river for water. There is also plenty of Bird life.
I had chimp trek in Budango. It was a 4 hour trek in Dense jungle and the feel of we ( me and my guide ) surrounded by about 10-20 chimpanzees were amazing. The chimp on trees, walking around us, making prank at us was a life living moment.
I also had chimp trek in Kibale where the chimps are very closely habituated and came very near us. There were 3 chimps and we took plenty of photo of their antics.
This was followed by amazing the gorilla trek. We hiked in the dense rainforest amidst thick bushes, flowing streams, waterfalls. The hike was steep in the mountains and it was a very tough terrain. It was well worth it and we saw a family of 12 gorillas and spent about an hour with them. There was the silver back, some female gorillas, baby gorilla and adolescent gorillas. It was amazing to see them play, cuddle, reprimand, jump in trees, communicate with each other. It was one of the biggest moments of my life and feel blessed to see our close cousins in such close quarters.
On the same day night, I had Night safari in Lake Mburo. I saw two leopards hunting in the night. I also saw the glowing eyes of bush babies, Civets on the prowl, Hippos grazing along the Lake. It lasted about 2 1/2 hrs and we were back to the lodge for good night’s sleep.
The next day was a amazing bush walk into the jungle with the armed forest ranger. We first encountered a herd of buffaloes which my ranger said is dangerous and we moved into other direction. I saw bush bucks, Water bucks and Zebras in very close range and took many photos. The highlight of the trip was my coming close to giraffe family and seeing in close quarters the baby and adolescent Giraffes .The walk was for about 5 hours and I felt very refreshed.
Over all, the trip was very good and kudos to home of Africa Team for such a lovely trip

An travel experience of a lifetime
From the first contact untal leaving, we had the best travel and life experience. Hedmond answered so many questions we had before. Always kind and quickly. We had Derrick the wonder guide as our guide. Thats how we called him, since he was the best. In finding animals, his knowledge and great energy. We had so much fun. Thank you for our experience. We needed 3 days of rest after..to relax from all our great experiences.

Amazing tour, excellent service
I had booked a 21 day tour through Uganda from east to west. Home to Africa provided excellent service and was always highly responsive.
The tour stops were excellently selected as well as the accommodation.
I like to mention my guide Alex Namaara, he did an excellent job and he is the best guide I ever had.

This a the second time I travel with Home to Africa and it a really serious one. The drivers and guides are so nice and helpful. I will never think of going Uganda with another company.
