Cruising on Murchison Falls
5/5

WE enjoyed our tour of slow cruise to the fall and back. This complete area is a host of wildlife, that provides opportunity to view the natural diversity. While cruising, on the way-out including hippos, elephants on shore, monkeys and bird life seems fantastic. The kingfishers are quite a sight to watch as they dive into the water for dinner. We had a good guide as well, who showed us all the sights and talked about them. Some of the visitors opted to disembark the ship and hike to the top of the falls. It looked like a long time for this and involved hike, so we decided to remain on the ship. The entire ride was amazing and comfortable. There is facility for snacks to purchase on the ship.

Gorillas are the highlight of course. Beautiful forrest and landscape
5/5

Loved loved loved our trip to Bwindi National Park. Seeing the magnificent mountain gorillas in their natural environment was breathtaking. A huge thank you to our guides and trackers who made this experience so fantastic and are doing such a great job in helping preserve these wonderful creatures.
As for many the gorillas were definitely the highlight on a trip to Uganda. The park itself lives up to its name, it is dense, beautiful forest. Our trek took about four hours up and about three hours down, hiking through dense jungle, swamps, up and downhill and was definitely tough but oh so worth it. Two guys were guiding the path with machetes. The difficulty we felt was more the track rather than physical exhaustion however some people suffered. But It was all rewarded when we found the gorillas. It was amazing how close you can get to them. These are very impressive animals, on the other side funny and playful. The way back was probably nicer as it was a permanent and well-maintained track, and offered some excellent views.
Overall, wonderful experience, can't wait to return one day.

AMAZING- MUST DO EXPERIENCE!!
5/5

We were here for a 4 days trip in January with a tour package from Frena Adventures. Having first stop at Bwindi and visited 2 or 3 families of gorillas, what an experience was that on day. The guides are amazing and you do not travel for very long as there are trackers out before you go to find the family. The rule is to stay 7 metres away from the gorillas but they come up to you. The pictures you can get of these creatures are amazing and the money you spend on seeing these creatures goes towards helping them stay alive in their natural area for as long as possible. We only spend an hour with the gorillas but It really is a must do expereince and one I would like do it again!

Relaxing boat trip and abundant wildlife
5/5

The Kazinga channel is having lots of fun in itself and a boat drive an absolute must during a stay in Queen Elisabeth NP. We were on a tour organized by Frena Adventures but I am not aware of the logistics of the boat trip, since it was organized for us and we just needed to show up.
We were lucky to also stay at the Bunyonyi Safaris Resort, just overlooking the lodge so the feeling is totally complete.
You can see buffalos, hippos, crocs, varieties of birds and elephants from literally 5 m away from the safety of your boat. Hippos are shy animal and would mostly submerge when a boat approaches, but juveniles and buffalos are less careful and you can see them very well.
My personal highlight during the tour was buffalos and hippos in one group just hanging out with each other.

Celebrate Birthday with Nature Adventure
5/5

We were a group of 5 people scheduled to enjoy my birthday weekend with nature drive and looking at gorillas, after having booked leave and paid for the permit months in advance. It was a remarkable experience. First off, there’s a very good reason they call in impenetrable, ensure never to get lost in there. You will never let to know which way is up, down or return without a guide, so the wonder of it all is something, the huge trees, the fog, the ever persistent rain. Also there are gorillas and some other primates and birds, which I must add are quite colorful. I was worried I’d not enjoy the experience because it was my first time in deep forest but met up with another group that morning and we trekked together it was fascinating, talking to people obviously so different at face value. Must add this to your life list. Not bucket list. Thanking to this great company for this amazing pleasure.

Amazing Lake- Bunyonyi !!
5/5

Visiting Lake Bunyonyi & staying at the Bunyonyi Safaris Resort was the best highlight of my 4 Days trip with Frena Adventures. Now I had understood why it's rated as one of the most beautiful lakes.

We had provided a guide who took us up a hile just behind the resort. We had some amazing views of the lake from that high angle - looking down at the various islands in the lake. We also had a 1-hour boat ride where the guide went explaining stories behind the many islands. We were assured that the lake is bilharzia free and it is the second deepest lake of Uganda, even some of in my group braved to have a swim in the chilly waters.

If you are in the Kabale region, I recommend it to check out this beautiful lake with its many islands. You won’t regret it.

Mesmerizing Journey to Uganda - Thanks to East African Jungle Safaris...
5/5

It was a great experience to be so close to nature and becomes more exciting as you have to "earn the experience" by all the efforts that a traveller puts in, which gives more satisfaction. My Kudos to each of the members who has involved to our trip and make the travel such an amazing experience. Should categorically state my thanks to Babylon who was a wonderful guide/driver and was a pleasure to interact with. Very good accommodation and Great food at most of the places.
Its a great place for anybody who is looking for a trip out of box and out of comfort zones but need a sense of accomplishment. Look forward very much to a return visit...

This Park is Absolutely Amazing Place
5/5

Me and my Partner travelled to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Junuary 2020 and we had a great experience with Frena Adventures.
We tracked a family of 15 Gorillas. which was quite difficult in some very rugged terrain but well worth it when you catch up to them. Just sitting and watching them makes you realize how close to humans they are. It was an absolutely amazing experience and well worth it.

Beautiful Lake Bunyonyi !
5/5

On our 4 days tour we stayed on a hill overlooking the lake and it was absolutely beautiful view. Sunset over the lake was amazing, and you can take trips out on the lake as well. There are lot of islands you can go around and some you can walk around. One of the islands even has zebras!

Accommodation were so good , we stayed at Bunyonyi Safaris Resort with our guide Alollo. We did a boat tour on a small, engine-powered canoe type boat. You can also rent canoes or go swimming.
This is a great place to relax for a day or two after tracking the gorillas.

Trekking the beauty at Lake Bunyoni
5/5

After visiting this place, I must say Lake Bunyoni is one of the most beautiful sights in Uganda, drowned a history and surrounded by stunning views. Across the way is a place called Edirisa were we stayed for some time and our guides Apollo and Frank helpout touring the surrounding areas. The place is one in a million and is a must see in Uganda. Highly recommend a trip to the Lake. Apollo managed a short boat ride around and tell us some interesting facts about the region and the people. Many small islands within the Lake and you can stop at some and walk around there. Our 4 days trip was managed in a very precise manner by Frena Adventures and want to thanks a lot...I Hope we will back here soon..
