Wonderful experience
5/5

Planning & organization with the company was exceptional before, during, and after the tour. The company was responsive throughout the process and made recommendations on the overall tour for our group of 6 friends. Thank you Joseph and team for helping us out and planning this amazing trip.

The tour was culturally rich as well as the opportunity to be with nature and an abundance of wildlife. We saw lions, gorillas, chimpanzees, zebra, elephants, giraffes, warthogs, water buffalo, birds and so much more.

We also had the opportunity of being with the people of Uganda and ventured through several villages including a specific pygmy village where they performed (sang songs and danced) for our group - a wonderful experience learning about the Pygmy people.

Highly recommended!!!

Highly recommend
5/5

Everything was impeccably planned and executed. Before and during the trip we always felt perfectly informed and well taken care of.

During planning, Joseph was highly flexible and created an itinerary tailored to us. He was a great tour guide with knowledge about all animals and birds we encountered. He is also a very likable person and we felt very secure with him all the time. We especially valued his punctuality and high standards of professionalism.

After the 3 days visit to Murchison Falls National Park, were taken to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for Gorilla trekking, and then transferred to Kibale National Park for Chimpanzees tracking. Kubwa Five Safaris organized permits for Gorilla and Chimpanzee visits so we didn't have to worry about this.

The two activities in Bwindi and Kibale were out of this world. The hikes were a bit long but worth it, you got to travel to Uganda and book with this company to have such a great lifetime safari experience. Uganda is greatly gifted by nature, there is a lot to explore.

Thanks again for the wonderful time and we can highly recommend going on a safari with this company.

An equally magical experience
5/5

We booked with Kubwa Five Safaris and we got to know them through a friend, who had gone to Kenya a year ago, and him and his family booked with this company.

We went to Naivasha, Amboseli, Masai Mara, Nakuru and Tsavo, all very different experiences and all great in their own way.
We saw more wildlife than we ever dreamed possible (the big five and many more!) and had the holiday of a lifetime. Would highly recommend Spirit of Kenya.
Our guide Anthony made the wildlife come to life, and I greatly learned many new things from him. He also answered all of our questions regarding flora and fauna, and was very patient and kind with us.
Without a doubt, we will again plan a trip with Kubwa Five Safaris to give us an equally magical experience!

The whole safari was amazing and we would totally recommend Kubwa Five Safaris.

The best Safari company in Uganda
5/5

Kubwa Five Safaris had the most reasonable rates, and they were great in communication, so I felt pretty good about booking a tour with them. Kubwa Five Safaris was more attentive, tailor-making the tour to our exact specifications, giving excellent tips and recommendations, and putting through all the detailed changes we requested quickly and efficiently.

Our driver/guide, Joan was a really lovely and knowledgeable person. We greatly enjoyed this company for the days we were in Rwanda. The gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park was beyond all expectations in terms of our proximity and views of the gorillas. We trekked the Sabinyo group and after a couple of hours, we met the endangered giants up in the hills. It was an amazing experience to see the gorillas close up in the wild and this is one of the most memorable trips that I have ever taken.

In the afternoon, after the trek, we enjoyed a relaxed evening at the Iby'wachu Village where we learned about the history, culture, and heritage of the Rwandan people. This is another amazing experience that you should not miss while in Rwanda.

All of our accommodation was lovely and really showed us the variety Rwanda has to offer. From staying in a luxury high rise hotel in Kigali to jungle camping in Kagera National Park and staying in a variety of safari lodges, all hotels were lovely, with great facilities, great food and drinks, friendly staff (& wildlife!) and lovely rooms.

I strongly advise you to request Joan as your driver and guide when you are in Rwanda! For one week, she was both our friend and our professional guide; enabling us to see all the highlights of a truly beautiful country in a relatively short length of time.
I have no hesitation in recommending Kubwa Five Safaris to anyone planning a safari holiday in Rwanda in the future.

Perfect Trip
5/5

We have had a magnificent vacation with KUBWA FIVA SAFARIS, I really recommend that if you are thinking of taking a tour of Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania, the experience has been unforgettable, The treatment received by JOSEPH was simply perfect, from the first contact we had , it was always clear and objective with all our doubts and together we built the itinerary that together with my family we enjoyed, it goes without saying that the big 5 we saw and learned about their characteristics, in addition to the main objective for us which was to see the gorillas and chimpanzees in Its habitat was an experience that we will always carry in our memories.

The people who, in addition to Joseph, will accompany us also did a very professional job, ROLAND, in Uganda, Kelvin in Kenya and Peter and Nico in Tanzania, always attentive to our needs.

We did everything, ballooning, rafting, zip lining, and a huge amount of safaris, I have nothing to say that it did not go well, from the first to the last day.

THANK YOU KUBWA FIVE SAFARIS, for this wonderful vacation.

Very helpful
5/5

From the beginning of the booking process until the end of the safari in Uganda, the manager of this safari was very responsive and took great care of my individual requests. He accompanied me during my trip from Entebbe Airport to Murchison Falls National Park.

Joseph was an excellent guide. The Murchison Falls National Park experience was way well beyond my expectations - fantastic game drive and boat tour on the Nile. We saw various animals in the wild and birds that I had only seen on TV and wildlife documentaries only.

The lodge had delicious meals, it also was a great basis for our excursions, it is located inside the park, we could see animals right through windows at night.

I can fully recommend them to others who would want to make an excellent first-hand experience of Uganda.

Quick responses and very kind service.
5/5

Everything since the first contact was very clear and straightforward. Quick responses and very kind service.

During the safari, everything was very well taken care of and my guide was just amazing. He did everything to make sure my experience was the best.

The accommodations were just beautiful and comfortable and the food was delicious. The hotel staff and service were always beyond amazing.

All the activities and game drives were well organized. I saw animals that had never seen before.

I would absolutely recommend this particular 3 Days Murchison Falls Adventure Wildlife Safari with Kubwa Five Safaris.

Thanks to Kubwa Five Safaris for making our stay in Uganda memorable.
5/5

Kubwa Five Safaris did an amazing job in excellent planning, timekeeping, and competency. We got the best service and all that was agreed on in the itinerary was received. The most important thing is the family feeling during the whole trip.

Joseph our guide was so helpful and supportive. We had the best game drives, birding, and boat rides. All the guide's recommendations during these activities were excellent.

The car's condition and cleanliness were excellent.

The chosen accommodations were perfect, clean, and very comfortable. All meals during the trip were very nice. We greatly enjoyed African meals, and fruits such as sweet bananas, pineapples, and jackfruit. The various meal options were available.

I recommend Kubwa Five Safaris because we were not disappointed and the service they offered was beyond our expectations.

Thanks to Kubwa Five Safaris for making our stay in Uganda memorable.

They truly showed us that Uganda is the pearl of Africa.
5/5

When my sister and I wanted to book a last-minute safari (literally a month before), this safari company was more than willing to help us and host us for six days. They are extremely well organized, and they took care of all plans for the safari to Queen Elizabeth National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest including our gorilla licenses for tracking, accommodation, all food, all transport to and from the airport and different parks. They are also staffed with the nicest team members.

Our personal guide Steven was amazing, driving us from location to location, describing the landscape and history of the country and its contents, and making sure we were happy and satisfied during our six-day excursion.

My sister and I particularly enjoy being active, and although a large part of the safari is in the car, Steven made sure that we had beautiful game views during the game drives.
When we said we loved getting up early to watch the beautiful sunrise, he made sure that we did it the next day as well, and because he is an expert safari tracker, we got to see lions that morning as well.

The places we stayed were lovely and quaint with fantastic food, but what made the experiences were the staff at each lodge. They made us wonderful meals and made sure we had everything we needed to have a more than comfortable night.

Overall, 3 Days and 2 nights in Queen Elizabeth National Park plus 2 nights in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest surpassed our expectations, as did the activities. Tracking both chimps and gorillas was one of the most incredible experiences of my life.

Uganda has such beautiful scenery and wildlife that I was never bored even being in the car for 1-5 hours. They truly showed us that Uganda is the pearl of Africa.
