We had a great time on our short but exciting safari trip.
Our guide/chauffeur was punctual and picked us up at our stay in Kampala at 7am on Sunday.
The trip to Murchison went smooth with a coffee break at a nice place by the road with clean toilets and good coffee.
Our guide worked through the payment/paperwork by the Murchison park entrance and on arrival at Paraa we checked in at Paraa safari lodge and had lunch.
Once again we got picked up on time by our guide who drove us to the Nile 5min away.
We had a 3h boat safari up to the Murchison falls and saw hippos, crocodiles and elephant and some other animals on the way, by the river bank.
We continued straight to and evening safari in the park and we’re lucky to see both elephants, giraffes and lions among other animalS in the dusk. Dinner at the at 7pm. The Lodge have pleasant rooms with AC and comfortable beds.
Coffe in the morning and a morning safari at 6. Highly recommended! We saw lions eating and other animals inf the morning. Breakfast at the lodge and then checking out and continuing for a stop at Murchison falls our way home.
The car was comfortable with AC and a roof that got taken away during the safari trips.
We got back at 5pm on Monday.
The guy was informative without being stressful and was a great driver and guide.
We could have stopped at Ziwa rhinos sanctuar but choose not to in order to get back home before the worst traffic jams in Kampala.
We had a great time!

Silverback were thoughtful about our tour itinerary, helpful with all pre-travel advice and explanations and went out of their way to make the tour memorable. We always felt confident that they knew what they were doing and how to help us get the most from our trip. We also appreciated their flexibility when we wanted to change plans. Definitely recommend them.

Magnificent experience on safari in Murchison Falls National Park.
My experience with Silverback Travel Company exceeded my every expectation. I was in Uganda for business and only had two days to go on safari. Samuel was a wonderful tour guide and planned a custom tour to maximize my time in Murchison Falls National Park. I was able to do two game drives, one in the evening and one the next morning. These drives were definitely the highlight of the trip. Samuel was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and as a result we were able to see lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, hippos, and many other animals. Despite not having as much time as I would like, Silverback was able to deliver a rich and fulfilling safari adventure. Samuel went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. The lodge at Murchison Falls was also very nice, had good food, and was very similar to other lodges I have stayed in at national parks in the US. I would give Silverback Travel Company my highest possible recommendation and would not hesitate to use them again when I return to Uganda.

Your tour guide was exceptionally accommodating and immensely knowledgeable about our experience.
We expected tremendously less than than what we received with this company. We had a few issues that were beyond the fault of the company, but the owner worked with us to the best of his ability with rectifying issues. This is a great company and we will contact this company to do more excursions and we will recommend this company to other people.

I️t was awesome!
The whole experience was beyond our expectations. We had a great guide, the camp was very nice, as was the food served at the camp. The only negative was the boat going to the falls. I️t had a group that was getting drunk and throwing trash in the water. They were loud and made difficult to enjoy the beauty around us.
Uganda filming trip
I filmed in Uganda for 2 weeks in December of 2015. All of our needs from logistics, to guides, to accommodation were taken care of by the Silverback Travel Company staff. Our film production was a huge success due to all the small details that they took care of and the high level of professionalism they showed to ensure we had all the necessary resources to help our job run smoothly. Their guides were very knowledgable about the country itself, the wildlife and the culture. I would definitely recommend them for safaris and tourist activities as well as for professional services like film production and professional photographers.

Gorilla Trekking in Uganda
In December my partner and I went on a gorilla trekking in Uganda with SBTC. There were lots of tour companies to choose from but none of them helped us so good with finding our ideal holiday as SBTC. The company's owner Samuel helped us wonderfully from the office and we don't regret our choice. His knowledge and extensive explanations helped us setting up our ideal program. Samuel even came to see us personally upon arrival at the airport. Also our tour guide Bernard was wonderful. Good English and extensive knowledge of wildlife and the gorillas. Observing these amazing primates was one of the most impressive moments of our lives. A welcome extra was that Bernard knew a lot about the many colorful birds in the region. Also the accommodations were really nice and comfortable. We can definitely recommend Silverback!
