Don't look any further if you want to tour Uganda!

I have just returned from my Ugandan safari and I already feel nostalgia for what has been a home away from home for 14 indelible days that count as years. And I am not being hyperbolic when I say that my solo escape to Uganda has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience which will remain engrained in my memory forever.
Everything about Uganda spoke to my soul: the sprawling savannah inhabited by hundreds of species of birds and unhabituated animals, the untouched beauty of the landscapes, the huge expanses of wilderness, the unspoilt, rough bush experience, the lushness of the vegetation surrounding the crater lakes in Kabarole district, the sound of the rapids of the Nile river, the warmth and hospitality of the people, the visits to the local communities and the relatively unmediated insights into their lives, the encounter with the chimpanzees in the wild and, last but not least, with the gorillas in their forest habitat, the most memorable, transformative experience of the trip and, quite possibly, of my life.
And all this wouldn’t have been possible without the advice, the support and guidance of Sedrick, who helped me put together the travel itinerary that suited me best, striking the perfect balance between intense days and unwinding days; assisted me in selecting the lodges that resonated with me and the landscape they are immersed in (and that follow and promote good conservation practices and ethics); communicated swiftly with me via email from the start, offered me excellent value for money and made transactions easy.
But my most heartfelt thanks go to James, my driver, my guide, my companion, for his confident driving that made me feel very secure even on the less travelled roads; for his knowledge in terms of local culture, wildlife and nature; for his insider’s perspective into the Ugandan way of life and customs; for his professionality, his reliability, his kindness, his attentiveness, his friendliness. He definitely went above and beyond to address my concerns, meet my demands and fulfill my wishes. I can’t praise him highly enough.
This journey has been a time of exploration, renewal and real bonding.
I hope to return to Uganda one day and, when that happens, I will certainly book my safari with Ngoni Safaris.

Exceptional tour operator

We had a exceptional 8 day safari including Gorilla trekking in Uganda with the top tour operator Ngoni Safaris. I have travelled with many safari companies in Kenya and Tanzania but Ngoni Safaris came tops. From the time we first started our communications over email and whatsapp to the time they dropped us to the airport was 5 star. I found Sedrick very reliable, honest, and presented us with a great itinerary for our specific interests at a very compatible price. Also very accommodating whenever we required something extra. Sedrick came with us for the duration of our tour and was great company giving us the history of the country, and its economy and people including the different kingdoms, culture, local customs and local food.
Sedrick was very easy to get on and we always had a good laugh. I told him about my love for Ugandan pineapple and the next thing I know he has stopped the car and bought 6 beautiful big pineapple for our journey. Every time we finished a game drive Jamal our guide and driver would get his sharp knife out and cut the pineapple up to quench our thirst. Sedrick took us to some amazing places to eat local food. I felt they met our every needs to make it a very memorable experience which will be hard to beat. We plan to book Namibia and Botswana with them as soon as can save some money again. Sedrick I give you 10 stars and you are the best. Can't wait for our next trip. Kwaheri yaku honana

Incredible 8 day Safari with Ngoni Safaris Uganda!

Absolutely incredible safari with Ngoni Safaris Uganda! Sedrick and Jamal went out of their way to ensure we had the most unforgettable experience during our time in Uganda. I highly recommend visiting Uganda with Ngoni Safaris!

A lush country with a rich history, diverse wildlife and variety of interesting cultures. Uganda is a pearl within the heart of Africa.

Uganda has so much to offer with its far less crowded National Parks, its incredible scenery and the diversity of experiences available.

During our trip we visited the Western and South-Western Regions of the Country which we squeezed into 8 days. I will definitely be returning to explore the Eastern and Northern Regions of the country and without a doubt will be booking this with Ngoni safaris again.

From the planning phase to the very last day the service from Ngoni was 5 star. Communication was always swift and informative, the price was the most competitive, the experience extremely personal and tailored to our requirements and the safari vehicles some of the best we've ever used on safari. An extremely trustworthy and reliable tour agency!

Nothing was too much for our tour guide, Jamal, and both Sedrick and Jamal went above and beyond, showing and teaching us the intricacies of the local culture, local cuisine and history of the country.

If I could give Sedrick and Ngoni safaris 7 stars, I would.

Ngoni is organized and provides excellent service.

We loved our guides Elias and Stanley. They are both knowledgeable and personable. The trip was well organized and Ngoni was flexible when we wanted to make small changes to the daily itinerary. We had fantastic bird and primate photography throughout the trip.

Very qualified tour provider

I had the trip of a lifetime with Ngoni Safaris Uganda. I was met at the airport by the highly professional tour guide David. He transported me with an excellent well maintained safari vehicle and knew the best routes to take to ensure I saw all the wonders of Uganda on my 13 day trip. He was very knowledgeable about all the formalities getting around the country. He made me feel extremely safe as a woman traveling solo. The lodgings were very good as well as the food from local sources. The people of Uganda are very friendly as well as strong and hardworking. Uganda is so beautiful and the people have such pride in their country; it is amazingly
clean. If you are thinking of a safari to see the amazing animals, people and natural wonders of Africa, I highly recommend a tour coordinated by Ngoni Safaris Uganda. The highlight of my trip was being so close to the gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Thank you also to Sedrick who made communication very easy and coordinated my PCR Covid test for my onward flight. This company will make sure your trip goes very smoothly.

An amazing trip with Ngoni Safaris

First of all I would like to thank “Sedrick”, the company director for his help and patience to customize such an unforgettable trip for us.
We spent six full days in Uganda between Queen Elizabeth park, Murchison falls park, Jinja, Kampala & Entebbe.
He was always there caring for us and ensuring everything was going smooth and easy..
We saw loads of animals, lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalos, giraffes, crocodiles…etc.
We enjoyed the professional driving, the information received from Sedrick and Stanley (the driver & guide), the good vehicle, the nice accommodation, the good food, the exciting rafting in the Nile (which was “la crème de la crème” of the trip) and above all the friendly people of Uganda.
For sure, I will recommend Ngoni Safaris to my friends and clients.
Thank you again

Outstanding experience with Ben and Ngoni Safaris

Sedrick was the one organized the tour… he was very clear about pricing, what was included, itinerary, etc. Ben Ndugwa was our tour guide for the entire 7-day adventure, and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide, companion, and new friend. A speaker of English, Luganda, and Swahili, he is a proud Ugandan who knows a lot about the country, the national parks, safaris, animals, and trekking. Unfortunately, he was not able to accompany us on the actual gorilla trek, due to the high cost of permits, but he has previously experienced it so we were able to share the experience. At all stops, he was able to tell us exactly what we needed to wear or bring, and what to expect to make the most of the experience. (We met other tour groups on the way and found that they weren’t always as informed or prepared as we were.) While Uganda is a generally safe country, Ben made us feel especially safe and comfortable along the way. We plan to return to Uganda and will definitely ask Ben to be our guide. Highly recommended experience with him and Ngoni Safaris.
