Kubwa Five Safaris provided excellent, attentive and generous service for our Safari.

I would highly recommend Kubwa Five safari for your East African adventure. From the very beginning of planning, they were incredibly helpful and informative and answered all my questions promptly.

As the trip approached, I requested a zoom meeting so that I could meet some of the staff in person and have additional questions answered. They were very happy to accommodate this and put any last minute. concerns, I might have had to rest. They also sent me a photo of Charles, "king" Charles, who would be our guide for much of the trip, so we would recognize him at the airport.

Charles was waiting patiently for us at the airport and made us feel so welcome. It was like we known each other for years. Any request we had, he tried to make happen. All of our accommodations were comfortable, warm and welcoming. The food was great and the Safaris really changed our lives. Being so close to the magnificent wildlife of Uganda was humbling. And the people in the communities we visited welcomed us with open arms.

We also spent 7 days/6 nights in the Rwenzori Mountains in the excellent care of Rwenzori Mountaineering Service. Our main guides, Hezron and "Papa" John were skilled mountaineers and made us feel safe and comfortable on a grueling 7 day adventure to 15,000 feet.

At the end of our mountain trekking, Charles was there waiting for us with water and off we went to end our trip in Kibale National Park were we trekked and hung out with chimps. Awesome. Once again, the accomodations were wonderful. Even on the way to the airport, Charles went out of his way to make our last request a reality. We wanted gum boots to take home. Charles found a hardware store on the way to the airport and made it happen.

Kubwa Five is 5 star!

Enthusiastic, and welcoming guide who made you the whole adventure feel super safe and fun!

Booking Kubwa Five Safaris was an excellent choice! My 2-day overnight adventure in Akagera National Park was breathtaking, beautiful, and truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The first day started with a stunning long game drive throughout the park, where we spotted many Buffalos, Baboons, Zebras, an elephant, Rhinos, giraffes, different types of Antelopes, hippos, and birds! The views were incredible, and I felt engulfed in the mountains and lakes of Akagera. I spent one night in the Karenge Bush Camp where I enjoyed a wonderful dinner under the stars and a peaceful night in my tent where I fell asleep to the sounds of wild animals around me! I woke up to a beautiful sunrise and enjoyed a nice breakfast before our long and enjoyable game drive back to the entrance of the park. The weather was perfect, and we saw different herds of zebras, baboons, buffalos, pumbas, antelopes, hippos, etc. I ended my trip with a guided tour of Lake Ihema, where the captain explained the behaviors of different animals, including elephants, hippos, and alligators! Overall, it was a fantastic trip and I would highly recommend booking Kwuba Five Safaris for your next Tour!

A Namibian safari we will never forget - amazing landscape, animals, culture, perfectly organized

Initially we did not really know what to expect, so we bombarded Kubwa Five Safaris with what might have been considered to be an unreasonable amount of questions - where to go, what would we see, where would we stay, and who would travel with us. Every time we asked a question the team responded incredibly quickly and were happy to answer the many follow-up questions that we had. Ultimately, we decided to travel as a couple with one of their local guides who would accompany us and drive us from location to location over the course of our 12 day trip. The Kubwa Five Safaris team were happy to customize the itinerary to make the absolute most of our time in wonderful Namibia (even when we asked them to add a last minute game drive before going to the airport to fly home). Our guide Angelo did an amazing job looking after us. Not only did he take the pressure away from the daily driving on unpaved roads, but he was our nature/cultural/city/history expert, and with him our unforgettable trip exceeded our every expectation. We started on a high at a private game reserve, before spending a further three days in Etosha National Park. After having spent two interesting days in Damaraland we moved on to Swakopmund with the German history before tackling the dunes in a 4x4 around Walvis Bay. Our final couple of days were spent in Deadvlei climbing "Big Daddy", overnighting in the Kalahari, before returning to Windhoek for the flight home... twelve amazing days filled with experiences of a lifetime and we cannot thank Kubwa Five Safaris enough for being with us every step of the journey. We are already thinking of where to go next with this amazing agency :-)

Awesome experience! Even for a lone traveller.

I booked a last minute trip on Thursday and flew out on Friday morning. Kubwa was able to quickly respond to my requirements via email and customized my trip because I was traveling alone. The trip was great in every aspect and the crew kept on following up in the whatsapp group to make sure I am okay. The gorilla and golden monkey trekking experience was phenomenal and definitely worth a lifetime experience. The trip was well-planned and to my opinion, a wonderful arrangement if you have three days to spare.

The only thing that I found could be improved is the restaurant food.. the burger I ordered was cold on the inside.. everything else was wonderful!!

Wow what a lovely professional and knowledgeable company. It's was such a easy process from initial contact, to airport pick up, to the tour and back.
Brilliant communication and always available even early morning / late night.
The gorilla tracking was such an experience I am already considering my next trip.
Our driver and guide Charles went above and beyond.
Highly recommended!

Magnificent Namibia with Kubwa-Five-Safari

My first words on returning home were to say, « I wish I could go back again tomorrow ! »
That is saying something after just having completed an over 4000kms rough road trip in 12 days all over the country.
Everything was just perfect, from the welcoming at the beginning to the final fairwell goodbyes at the end! John, my guide, was excellent and looked after me so well that I didn’t have to do anything at all, which was fantastic after many years of travelling alone and having to take care of everything myself.
The Itinerary was very well put together and around almost every corner was a new adventure waiting. The days simply flew past far too quickly, inspite of the number of hours on the road.
I loved all the lodges selected for me, each one totally different but nothing I would want to change. I particularly liked the drive up to the Epupa Falls on the Angolian border and the lodge there. I expect not so many visitors get there, but it is well worth the long drive.
We saw all of the big 5 and many more as well, in their natural surroundings.
The final fling form me was 2 days of relaxation (or maybe not) at the Okavanga Delta Botswana, also arranged exceptionally well by Kubwa-Five-Safaris, which shows that they manage more than 1 country at a time very competently!
Thank you everyone and I hope to be back again soon!

Very friendly and outgoing. Eager to teach and provide insight on culture and local area.

The 3 day gorilla and golden monkey safari was a thrilling and wonderful experience. Kubwa Safaris was very accommodating and flexible. We did everything and more than what I could have imagined. Tour guide (Smith) was very helpful and friendly and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure the trip was as perfect as could be. Accommodations were wonderful and transportation was prompt and efficient.

Amazing operator with the best guides Smith and Brian were awesome!

Great operator that communicates very well with customers. The guide, Smith, ensured we maximized our time and let us stop along the way to take as many pictures as we liked. We had him two days prior to our game drive for general transportation services and he was wonderful then as well. Brian, a second guide, helped Smith find animals while on the game drive. Reliable, friendly, and engaging! I would choose this operator and same guides again! They made it the best experience! Best of all… we saw lots of animals!
