Unforgettable Honey Moon

My husband and I, spent two wonderful weeks in Uganda and Rwanda, all arranged by Saso Uganda Safaris. This trip has certainly become a trip of my lifetime. Gorilla tracking in Uganda was extremely wonderful. The guide Kasim, was very motivating and keeping it positive in challenging moments like Gorilla tracking.

As for safari all I can say, had an amazing time. We took 5 day safari to Nyungwe, Volcanoes National Park, and Lake Kivu in Rwanda after touring Uganda. All parks are beautiful, but Bwindi was the place worth staying for days and if I come back I will choose to go double gorilla tracking for sure. Driver was funny, witty and informative with wildlife facts and safari stories.

Food on safari was also good and tasty, lunch boxes we received were very generous in size and portions in comparison what we saw with other people on picnic spots. For us this package was exactly what we wanted.

Best Trip Ever

Saso Uganda Safaris was our tour operator for my husband and my first Safari in Rwanda. We had the best experience and the best trip of our lives. We knew Rwanda was the place to be, but this was above all expectations.
The place is magical, but what makes a good trip is who you deal with, and this company was so professional from the beginning to the end. Always there to answer all our questions, very friendly, suggesting what they think is best for us, and making us feel comfortable through the whole process. Our guide was fantastic, the food was good everywhere we went and the lodges were even better than we expected.
Welldone Saso!!

Excellent 3 days in Queen Elizabeth National Park

I contacted Saso Safaris Uganda only a few days before I wished to make a 3 day trip to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Wilson replied to my enquiry very quickly and was able to provide a quote which was within my budget and which included a number of activities and services; including accommodation, meals, game drive, boat trip and chimp tracking. Their price was very competitive compared to some others.

Because l was a single traveler, l felt a little bit scared to travel with a strange guide for 3 days. I found the guide/client relationship a little awkward and formal at times. Luckily my guide understood this quickly and so we had a very relaxed relationship. At the same time, both of us were extremely professional, thoughtful and worked hard to make my experience perfect.

The boat ride on the Kazinga channel was a great way to see a range of animals really close up and the guide was extremely knowledgeable about them. The chimp tracking was incredible; walking in the forest with a guide and spending an hour with the chimps once you have located them. All in all it was an unforgettable trip which was made fun, easy, safe and affordable by Great thanks to My Guide and Saso Uganda Safaris!

Kampala city tour, Murchison Falls, National park, rhino tracking

Everything was really organized very well and in a very short time. The staffs in the office, Gladys and Raphael were really professional and friendly and tried to find a solution to all our requests. Our guide Michael was really amazing presenting all the animals, birds, he was always smiling, and we had a great time. All what was agreed in the office was respected, our budget accommodation were very great. I will recommend Saso Uganda Safaris to all my friends and colleagues who want to have a nice safari.

Great Adventure Safari

From the day I contacted Saso Safaris, they always replied me swiftly and with a very high level of professionalism. I am not used to book and pay online so I really had to feel that Saso Safaris was totally trustworthy.
Saso was able to answer all my questions in a very efficient way. We were lucky because I believe we had an exceptional driver/ guide called James.
He was always on time, drove safely, and checked some roads beforehand to guarantee we would always be on time. Cherry on the cake, he is not only a very responsible and committed guide but he is also very interesting and entertaining.

We managed to see a Leopard in queen elizabeth, Gorillas in Bwindi, actually see is not the right word...we were actually sitting two meters away enjoying an amazing moment. We explored Western Uganda to its fullest but in a very comfortable way. With Trek Gorilla Safaris, it was simply all about enjoying the trip with no organisation hassle! We want to thank Saso Safaris for this trip of a lifetime.

A Dream for Life Time!!!!

I have always dreamed of going to Africa on a safari, but luckily l accomplished this dream this last April with a phenomenal adventure in Uganda with a group of dear friends who contacted the expert services of Saso Uganda Safaris. I cannot say enough positive things about Saso Uganda Safaris and his naturalist drivers! The safari trip was customized for our group of wildlife and nature lovers - and we saw EVERYTHING - most in huge numbers! Elephants, lions, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes, cape buffalo, rhinos, hippos, zebras, wildebeests, gazelles, antelope, jackals, etc. Saso Uganda Safaris’ team knows the wildlife and terrain like the back of their hand. It was just amazing. The lodging was perfect and the meals were delicious. Their expertise, professionalism, and commitment to giving their clients the best possible safari experience is top-notch. Just delightful! I will definitely be back.

Wonderful experience!

Our group of 10 had a wonderful trip with Saso Uganda Safaris and his drivers. Saso Uganda Safaris seems to know everything about the animals of Lake Mburo, Queen Elizabeth National Park and the Chimps, inclusive Gorillas (but the Park rangers took us through the tracking time) and is an expert on Ugandan history and culture. He also had an amazing skill in finding the shyest and most elusive animals. Every detail of our experience was carefully planned and perfectly executed. I recommend Saso higher!

Unforgettable 4 Day Queen and Chimp Safari!!!!!!!

The trip of a lifetime! Saso Uganda Safaris worked with us such that we can have the unforgettable Safari. Wilson and his staff knew where we needed to be to see the most action. From experience, they could observe an animal's movement and position the vehicles for the best viewing and photos. The driver amazed us with their ability to spot even the smallest animal and bird species during game drive. With Michael's narration and nightly talks, we came to love his native Uganda and appreciate the treasures it holds.

5 Day Murchison Falls & Source of the Nile

This trip to the Murchison Falls was very informing and personal. The friendly community, beautiful culture around, excellent accommodation. My best moment was when we had a stop over to take pics, it is the best I have ever seen. Couldn't have asked for a better guide than Raphael. He was great and accommodated any request. Long leave Saso

Excellent safari operator

I did the Kidepo safari itinerary suggested by Saso Uganda Safaris, with the amendment of adding on a visit to a Ziwa rhino sanctuary. Saso Uganda safaris were excellent from the start.
Quick to respond, answered all my many questions. I imitated another reviewer here and paid the full balance of the safari in advance, as this felt safer than carrying a large amount of cash.
On the safari itself, their chosen driver/guide, Ahmed, was excellent - a safe driver and an informative and interesting travel companion. I would strongly recommend their Kidepo safari in particular - Kidepo was beautiful, worth the long drive. We got lucky and saw a lot of wildlife, including lions. Thanks Saso Uganda Safaris!!!!!!!
