Extraordinary service that led to a memorable experience!

What a blast to have experienced a 3-day Murchison Falls safari trip with Kubwa Five Safaries! The people behind the titles were super communicative throughout the whole procedure, open and willing to listen to our needs, up-to-date and extra kind. We were lucky enough to have been accompanied on this journey by the contagiously energetic Silas, who took the best care of us during our trip. Prioritizing our needs and wishes, trying his best for us to catch a glimpse of our beloved wild animals, being extra flexible with the schedule, and always there giving us engrossing insights. Couldn't have asked for a better team for this magnificent experience, highly recommend them to whoever's into experiencing the wildlife while tuning in great vibes!

Trip of a lifetime!

Three days and we made memories that will last a lifetime—it’s hard to put into words the magic and excitement that define this wonderful trip. Our guide, Silas, was a gem of a gentleman, a fantastic driver, a knowledgeable and interesting guide who always knew how to answer our many questions. From day 1 we were in capable hands with one of the sweetest and kindest young men I have had the privilege to meet and spend time with. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we saw what we most wanted to see and tirelessly explained so much to us about the African wildlife, Ugandan culture, and so much more. We now feel we have a special friend in Uganda—Silas has a special place in our hearts!

I can’t begin to express my gratitude for the excellent communication we had the entire time with the company and our guide. This is an organization that cares about the people they are working with, and I highly recommend them! Loved this trip so much!

Dont miss seeing Uganda

My only regret is that I didnt spend more time in Uganda. I was taken care of the moment I was picked up at Entebbe Airport to when I was dropped off. It was an amazing trip where I got to meet the people and soul of Uganda. Everyone was so kind and friendly. My driver Samuel, became a friend, not just a driver with great conversations about Uganda, Africa and Life. Trekking into see the gorillas was an awesome, inspiring experience, not soon forgotten. I joined 5 others and we met at the ranger station. While waiting we were treated to songs and sance from the local community. The guides and rangers were educated, very friendly and very helpful in supporting this 59 year old guy on the trek to see the gorillas. I did the community walk to meet the locals which included meeting the Batwa pigmy tribe that untill recently was living a VERY primitive life in the jungle. You will be in great hands if you choose Kubwa 5 Safari for all your travel needs in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda. These guys are the BEST !!!!

Amazing experience!

My husband and I booked a 5 day safari with Kubwa Five Safaris and had an excellent experience. From picking us up at the airport to dropping us off, everything was well planned out and well executed. The meals, excursions, accommodations, transportation, etc was all taken care of for us. It was so wonderful to be able to relax and fully take in the safari experience and not have to worry about the logistics, because there's a lot that goes into it! It was all very well organized. We had a well laid out itinerary emailed to us with all the info we needed prior to the trip. Communication was great, we were able to get all of our questions answered prior to the trip.
Our guide, Mukisa Silas, was wonderful. He truly made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. When we would go on an excursion he would always speak with whoever was in charge and make sure everything was good and that my husband and I were taken care of. It was like he was dropping his kids off at their first day of school and he wanted to make sure everything was good to go before leaving us! I ended up getting car sick on one of our drives (tip: bring Dramamine) and he was genuinely concerned about me and willing and ready to do anything to help me feel better. He drove slow the rest of the drive and I'm sure it took longer than planned to get to our destination, but it really did help me feel better.
He takes his job very seriously, and is committed to ensuring his clients have a trip to remember. It is very evident that he puts his heart into his job and doesn't just go through the motions. He really does care about the client and their experience.

I would absolutely recommend Kubwa Five Safaris to anyone. We have memories to last a lifetime!

Nice People Good Trip

When we arranged our trip, Joseph was very responsive and helped my Iranian wife get her visa. During the trip, our guide Samuel is a soft- speaking considerate gentleman. Generally speaking, in comparation with its neighbors, Uganda’s infrastructure is weak(especially the bumping road) , but its people are extremely warm-hearted, and its food is purely organic. We came on rain season, so the animals in Queen Elizabeth Park were sparse, while the Gorilla and Chimpanzee trekking became easier, we found the gorilla in impenetrable park within 30 minutes.

A Personalized Journey Across South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe

My safari experience with Kubwa across South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe was absolutely outstanding. What sets them apart is their unwavering commitment to constant care and follow-up, ensuring every detail of the journey through these diverse destinations is arranged. The personalized schedule crafted for my adventure showcased their dedication to tailoring experiences to individual preferences. The team's passion for customer satisfaction was evident in their proactive communication and attention to detail. From the knowledgeable and passionate guides to the seamless itinerary, Kubwa demonstrated a level of service that surpassed all expectations, making my safari not only unforgettable but also a truly bespoke and enriching experience.

Great trip perfectly organised

Our trip around Namibia was booked through Kubwa Five Safaris, main contact was Sylvia (from their sister company Ompo Travel). Everything was organised perfectly, Sylvia listened to our needs and constantly adapted the trip according to our (many) changes of mind, to ensure we could get the best out of it, both in terms of things to do and accommodations where to stay; but she also added her local know-how to advise our decisions on what really worth seeing and what to skip (given the limited time of two weeks). She was also very responsive, both prior the trip as well as during the trip, taking immediate action if needed (only once, due to a misunderstanding on the check-out from a lodge).
Namibia is an amazing place with plenty of wilderness and photo opportunities, and we have enjoyed it fully!

Amazing safari through 3 countries

Kubwa 5 did an amazing job planning our safari vacation. We had them arrange a 7 day trip through Zambia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe that had a variety of activities from game drives, river cruises, quad biking, and more. Everything that they planned went super smoothly and all of the places we stayed were great! Kubwa 5 went above and beyond when our flight to Africa was cancelled and rebooked to a day later by rebooking all of hotels and activities to accommodate our unexpected change in plans. We were still able to experience our trip originally as planned thanks to their quick action to help us. We would definitely book with them again.

Welcoming and Hospitable

The itinerary was well prepared before our safari, and everything listed there was delivered as promised. It was an ideal adventure, filled with stunning scenery, the Big 5, and nature unlike anything we would ever seen.

The meals on our safari were great, and our guide was knowledgeable and helpful with our questions, in fact he never got tired of our questions. The rooms were pristine, and the bathrooms and showers were of excellent quality.
