Excellent job Kubwa five!!
5/5

The hotel amenities were top class. I enjoyed the driver's stories about the different animals and names of bird species.

The highlight of my trip was the wildlife which we saw in large numbers especially the buffaloes, Elephants and Giraffe.
We had an opportunity to see a few lions and we also spotted a leopard, we were only group of tourists who had a privilege to see the leopard on that day. The guests who had come earlier than us and those who came after us failed to see any leopards on that very day, we were so lucky. This is because Steven our guide knew where to spot leopards.

Thank you Kubwa five safaris for the most memorable trip of a lifetime.

We really enjoyed the views of wildlife especially the lions at Murchison falls national park! I will definately use your services again and highly recommend your company.

Thanks for an unforgettable experience!

Amazing Rwanda safaris
5/5

We booked with Kubwa Five Safaris during COVID-19 pandemic for a trip to Rwanda shortly after Rwanda had opened her airports for international flights. We visited a number of places. We greatly needed this kind of trip.

We were 17 of us, the Standard Operating Procedures such as wearing of masks, sanitizers, etc, were all put in place, we used two minibuses which imply that social distance was observed.

We enjoyed the game drives and boat ride, while on our game drive, we saw; lions, elephants, buffaloes, hippos, etc. The accommodations were well selected and meals were great.

We will travel with Kubwa Five Safaris again

End of the year 2020 Vacation
5/5

Going on a vacation at end of the year organized by Kubwa Five Safaris was the best vacation decision I have ever made, I am filled with joy for having considered a friend’s recommendation about this company. I got to learn many things on the trip, some of the new things I learnt was the Sezibwa river was given birth by a woman, the river has beautiful falls and it is one of the places you should consider visiting. Kubwa Five Safaris you are best. Thanks so much.

Lifetime vacation experience
5/5

We started our trip with Jinja then Fortportal, we were driven to the source of the Nile in Jinja. On our way to Jinja, we branched off for zip lining in Mabira Forest, this is activity is out of this world, I screamed so hard, I fear heights but I had fun.

A tour of the Sezibwa falls was great. I got to learn that the Sezibwa river was birthed by a woman.

We liked the boat ride to the source of the Nile.

Joseph took a good care of us. He is a brilliant guide, knowledgeable, thoughtful and so friendly and determined to make sure we got what we wanted from this trip. Kubwa Five Safaris provided the services beyond our expectations.

After our Jinja trip, we hit road to Fortportal which is in the western part of Uganda, the we hiked the 4 crater lakes in Fortportal with interesting information on history about them .

On our last day at Kyaninga Crater lodge, we planted trees around the crater lake.

While at camp fire, we enjoyed listening to stories about the culture of Tooro.

Our tour of the famous Amabere ga Nyinamwiru caves was an added bonus.

It was my first time to have such a trip and I learned many things about my country on this trip.

Highly recommend Kubwa Five Safaris.

ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME
5/5

The most intriguing aspect is that we had a professional tour guide who knew what to look for and which part of the park had most breathtaking view. This was absolutely an adventure of a lifetime.

I recommend to any tourist visiting Africa and especially Uganda, the Pearl of Africa to use the services of Kubwa Five Safaris.

What a breathtaking experience… the accommodation and food were incredible…the game drives and boat cruise were so educative. The guide explained everything from the behaviors of each animal to why they are there.

one star budget 5 star experience
5/5

It was not my first time to Africa as a solo traveler but it was my first time visiting Rwanda and Uganda. I flew into Kigali Airport and I was welcomed by the whole pleasant team (Joseph the founder, Joan the tour guide in Rwanda, Steven the driver and William the photographer ) at the airport, I was then transferred to the hotel which was very close to the airport.
As a solo traveler, I felt safe with 3 men and one lady around me all the time. Joan was so knowledgeable about Rwanda and constantly explained things and pointed things out to me.

The cultural interaction at Gorilla Guadian Village (Ibyiwacyu) I experienced in Rwanda is out of this world. I was crowned as a queen, I dressed an African queen outfit.
After Rwanda, we connected to Uganda. I had amazing Gorilla trekking with other people from different parts of the world.

The amount and diversity of wildlife in Uganda is outstanding and I came across many hippos, lions, buffaloes, and other animals. I encountered an elephant at the lodge in Queen Elizabeth National park, every night through the window I would spot hippos, buffaloes, and other animals. The sunset boat cruise on the Kazinga channel was amazing which started just after lunch.

However, the vehicle had some technical difficulties (was a little bit of an adventure) at the beginning of the trip but Joseph and Steven were extremely competent and made every effort to resolve the car situation. I believe that a great company is not all about the problems you encounter but how they rectify them.

I was a budget traveller but I had a 5-star experience. The hotels provided me with delicious and varied food throughout the tour, some other days I would have meals at restaurants in the community.

I was supposed to stay longer (31 days in both countries) on the trip but I had to terminate the trip as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.

I had an excellent time and enjoyed my adventure in Rwanda and Uganda very much. I just don't think I could have had this experience with any other provider. They took great care of me and all my needs.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting to experience Rwanda and Uganda.
I will go back to Uganda next year to complete my trip, then connect to Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Zambia, still this same company will organize my trip.
