Great oppurtinity to visit/enjoy Lake Mburo NP in a short time!!
5/5

Lake Mburo National Park is a fine place to visit for one or two days as we had visited on a day tour. I went with my wife and our two daughters of 13 and 16. Arriving there around 9pm there were a couple of hippos thrashing through the brush not ten meters from tented camp!
The boat trip on the lake is an opportunity to see many hippos, a couple of crocodiles, and a lot of birds. Also we had lunch at boat and was quite fine. Our guide Frank was very nice, talking with us in english and knew many details concerning all about that we were viewing.
We then did a walk with a ranger. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a rare experience to be able to walk in a park amongst the wildlife. This is an advantage to visiting a park without many predators. The walk was easy and the spectacular views, a breath of fresh air.
I recommend Lake Mburo to anyone with a love for nature, particularly birds, though thee are no elephants, leopards are difficult to spot, and the handful of lions in the park are rarely seen. Our complete day was full of adventures,, and by heart thanks to Frena Adventures.

Great adventure treking for gorillas in Bwindi.
5/5

I loved my moments with the Gorillas in Rushaga sector of Bwindi Impenetrable national park. I saw babies play-swinging on tree branches while their mothers were feeding. For the first time I saw a very huge silverback walk up to us closely that we all had to stand and not act scared of course giving it its pathway. This experience was so golden that I would recommend it to all travelers coming to Uganda. And I love that fact that part of the fees paid for this activity goes towards conservation of these Apes and thanks to this the Gorilla population is increasing. Also Thanking to Frena Adventures fot this amazing tour...!!!

Visited a Very stunning and inspiring place on our tour!
5/5

We were on the 4 day tour with Frena Adventures and we had very great expectations about Lake Bunyonyi from everything we read and heard. But it shows everything true as we reached there. It was very wonderful to take in the views from both on top of the hills and down right on the surface... the light and the water and the islands... like a place where you can take the awesome pictures always! As per my experience, I recommand to go stay on the islands when you are here, like Bushara or definitely Byona Amagara looked great. Also eat up at the Lake Café on top of the hill! Great food and great views at Lake Bunyonyi. It was a great time at there.

"First to saw a Lions on the Tree and lot of other Animals, so much Excited"
5/5

My tour guide Frank, picked me early in the morning and reached at the main destination. After having lunch at the entrance of QENP, we started driving to head to towards game drive. Frank often stops and talks to the other guide/drivers as well to keep in touch with others. He told us that there is a family of lions on the tree. We had to turn back and picked up a Park Ranger to accompany us. After several minutes of driving we got that, and Wow!!! my first lions on the tree. Leisurely, hanging on the tree. Some of them sleeping, some of the lions wide awake, just lounging on the tree. Everything was just an amazing sight to see. There were at least 8 lions on the tree. I am so pleased to get the chance to see these amazing animals and all the animals in this park. With our guide, Park Ranger was most helpful as well.

Akagera NP trip was truly magnificent!!
5/5

We were able to spend a full day in Akagera. The best part of the trip was the boat ride on Lake Ihema to see aquatic animals. Our guide Apollo with us in Akagera Park was amazing! He was so professional and knowledgeable about the animals, especially the birds. His passion when talking about the birds, animals and the land is unparalleled. You could tell the love and respect he has for this park and it’s animals. He was even able to take us to see a bull elephant playing in the water.
The complete tour was wonderful. Everyone was polite, professional and fun! Our safari tour guide, Apollo, with Frena Adventures was knowledgeable about the animals and the area and he was so much fun to be around!!
I would highly recommend Akagera for anyone who wants to go on safari and do this with this company and guide and experience the animals and the land of Rwanda.

This is Impossible to summarize at all.
5/5

The breadth and scope of a visit to the Murchison Falls makes it impossible to summarize. In whatever mode you reach near to the Falls (boat, car and hike) is just seems as an beautiful end. The feel of this enormous river trying to squeeze through a narrow portion makes your hair stand on end...particularly if you climb to the top and stand close to the end. For those going to the top of the Falls, I suggest that you boat to the beginning of the trail, hike the trail (preferably in the cool of the morning) and then get a car ride back to your stay. At last thanks to this perfect company for this amazing tour .

Visited the gorillas at Bwindi.
5/5

My expectations were high - I'd paid a lot for the permit, travelled a long way to get here, and everyone who'd been said it was a magic experience. I was put with my peers in the older group - all highly mobile, but perhaps not as fit as the younger ones. We were lucky, after a magic half an hour walk through the jungle we found the amazing giants,. As everyone says, just being with these animals is a wonderful experience, all I had hoped for, but the real stars were our guides and trackers, who skilfully managed our proximity to the gorillas to give us an amazing experience while managing the interaction to ensure our safety, and not upsetting the gorillas. These guys are amazing!!!

Climbing Lions are just Wow..!!
5/5

It was a little boaring evening game drive on first day as we only sighted some antelopes and wild boars in Kibale NP. Part of an hour the game drive, we saw 3 females lions from a far and even with a binocular, the lions were too far from clear. But, the next morning drive in the Ishasha sector was much more rewarding and wonderful. We saw groups of elephants (including baby elephants) and buffaloes crossing into our land cruizer's path. We also get oportunity to came up close to 3 elephants. After another 3 hours gruelling drive and dozed off under the heat, then we finally found a lion climbing up on the tree. According to our guide Frank, beautiful male lion rarely comes out in the morning so we were very lucky at that particular time!

It was a Long hike, but breathtaking result.
5/5

Wow, just wow. This was the most important reason we booked a trip to Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest, Uganda with Frena Adventures and it was totally worth it.

We had to hike for 3,5 hours before we found the mountain gorillas, that was pretty tough and We were tracking with our guide Frank. Once we found them, all the tiredness was gone. They were so peaceful and amazing giants to observe. The time we had spent with them was over very soon.

We took a porter with us, also to support the community. If the gorilla family is close, you probably don’t need one. But it’s still good to bring a porter because you never know when you need help and also this way you can help someone make some money, we were glad we payed a porter to help. Some other people in our group regretted they didn’t get a porter.

The gorilla tracking is a pretty expensive activity, but totally worth the money. I would recommend this to anyone and I definitely want to do this again some day.
