A lifelong dream come true :)
I have been wanting to see the gorillas for many years, with my last attempt being in March 2020...
Luckily I was able to come to Uganda again and searched for reputable operators to help me achieve this. Peter's company quickly stood out as just that - and boy did he deliver!
Peter is a knowledgeable and friendly guide. I travelled alone and often requested changes to the day's plans which he went above and beyond to accommodate. He has a wealth of local knowledge and loads of anecdotes that make the road trips extra-special.
Everything was very well organised, down to the comfort breaks which is a nice touch, especially if travelling as a female alone. The activities were
The lodges (Bakiga; Birdnest Bunyonyi and Elephant Hab) were excellent: great facilities, good food and friendly service, as well as breathtaking views at each lodge, which was wonderful.
The activities were well planned and occurred with no surprises nor delays.
Peter was a delight to travel with, easy to talk with and just lovely to be in his company and learn about Uganda, off the beaten track.
If you are looking for a well organised trip at competitive rates, Peter is the one to contact!

Perfect host in Uganda
We first did a trip to Bwindi and Queen Elizabeth for 4 days. Peter is really charming and makes you feel comfortable at any time. The information you receive is clear and the lodges and activities are carefully chosen. As we enjoyed it very much, me decided to do another trip with him, this time a 2-day trip to Murchison Falls and it was also amazing. Very recommendable and wishing Peter very good luck.

Trip of a lifetime!
Peter was an amazing guide and he really pays attention to the smallest detail to ensure our trip was the best experience for us. It was our honeymoon and at several locations, Peter went out of the way to arrange romantic candle light dinners, our favorite one being by the Nile. We preferred having the local food and Peter made sure we had fresh, local food prepared for us at every stay. We felt extremely safe and confident traveling cross country. We enjoyed our time in Uganda so much that we extended our trip to a month! Peter was so cool about showing us around the city too, taking us to the offbeat, local pub and club experiences. The beauty of Uganda really came to light at such moments, with its rich music and laid back lifestyle. It really surprised us how untainted the country is, neither by mass consumerism nor an active social media presence.
Thank you so much for a memorable trip Peter, we have earned a true friend from Uganda

Rewarding and personalised safari experience in Murchison
We had a wonderful experience travelling with Peter from Buyaga Safaris. We took the 3-day trip from Kampala to Murchison, including the Ziwa Rhino sanctuary, game drives in Murchison and a memorable boat cruise up the Nile river to see the falls from below. From our earliest booking inquiry we found Buyaga Safaris most helpful and reliable to communicate with and offering a very reasonable price for the trip. With only two of us travelling, Peter provided a flexible and personalised itinerary, as well as sharing many interesting local insights with us along the way. Walking with the rhinos was a once in a lifetime experience and the morning game drives in Murchison rewarded with a beautiful sunrise and spotting of elephants, lions, buffalo herds, giraffes, hippos and numerous types of antelope. We also especially enjoyed staying at Murchison River Lodge, an eco-friendly and thoughtfully put together place right next to the Nile, great food, accommodation and service. Would definitely recommend this trip to other travellers.

Best safari operator I’ve been with
I’ve been on a few safaris in and out of Africa and Peter was the best guide I have ever had.
Peter genuinely cared and had an interest in the animals, the environment and other cultures. He was great to chat to and always made us feel comfortable. Peter was very professional and passionate as well.
We travelled with Peter on our honeymoon and he made us both feel very safe and at ease.
The Safari itself was really good, seeing everything that we wanted and more. Peter pulled out all of the stops in order to make sure we had an incredible wildlife experience. All of the rangers, hoteliers and staff knew Peter and received him well.
The vehicle was comfortable and clean. It was perfect for the safaris we went on. The air con was able to be put on for the entire journey as well which made for a comfortable travel. Water was always on hand as well.
The accommodation selected was very good with great food, service and comfortable beds.
Throughout the booking process and pre trip time, Peter was more than happy to answer questions and help with anything with a speedy response.
I really wouldn’t look anywhere else other than Buyaga Safaris. I don’t think I ever saw Peter without a genuine smile. He clearly loves what he does.

Couldn’t have asked for anything more
We had a once in a lifetime week spent with Buyaga Safaris and Peter. We love that Peter/Buyaga Safaris is a native Ugandan tour guide operator. This means we received a truly authentic trip to Uganda. Peter was extremely knowledgeable about the culture, flora, agriculture practices, wildlife, history and more of Uganda. We learned so much about Uganda and felt safe and in great hands the entire trip. Peter went above and beyond to meet all of our needs. We became great friends and we will miss him very much. Look no further for a tour guide operator. Buyaga Safaris will 100% provide you with an unforgettable experience. Until next time!

Friendly, trust worthy, 100% safe at the best affordable budget
After searching vastly for a reliable tour operator that worked within our budget, I was so happy to find Buyaga Safaris. And after interacting with Peter for over the span of two months, I was rest assured that we found an ideal match. But it sounded tooo good to be true!!
Peter was super nice, responding immediately to our queries and assisted us for preparing for our first ever jungle safari.
Until the moment my husband and I arrived at Entebbe, we were still skeptical

Worth every penny!
Peter was a gracious and attentive host. Places to visit, to stay and to eat have all been selected with utmost consideration and all were really pleasant. This is a good way to see the beauty of Uganda. I felt safe as a solo traveller and really enjoyed the trip.
