"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.

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.

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...!!!

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.

Very Honest Tour Operator That Communicates With You Very Often and Well
5/5

We booked a 3 day Gorilla treking tour with Fred (Frena Adventures) that was to begin in Kigali, cross the Uganda border, trek with Gorilla's in Bwindi National Park. Flying into Kigali, Rwanda is much closer to Bwindi than flying into Entebbe. Anyway we had the trip booked for a party of 7, and due to the COVID pandemic (which seems to never end) kept the border closed and made getting into Uganda very difficult from Tanzania or Kenya due to all the additional testing we'd need to do.

Long story short, Fred was with us the entire time. As things arose, we could email him, and he'd respond promptly. We made a down payment on our tour, and due to all the circumstances, we had to cancel, and Fred was very good about refunding an agreed amount of money. It was very fair with us. I felt all along that Fred was a very honest man, and doing all he could to work things out with us. Like I mentioned earlier, he was quick to communicate. We didn't actually take this tour, but we have been working with Fred from January - August 2021, and I feel I have a really good idea of what kind of a man he is and company he runs.

We plan to do this Gorilla treking tour sometime, and we will plan to do it with Frena Adventures.

Helpful in other ways besides the Safari
4/5

We had a great time on our Safari, which was Muchison Falls Big 5 plus Chimanzee tracking. It included a boat trip to the falls, which I highly recommend, the ranger guide on the boat was great. The guide at the Rhino Zoo was also great. Our driver from Frena was not a driver-guide and he did not talk much, but he got us there and back safely and knew where to find the lions. The Lodge we stayed at on the outside of the park had spactacular views and exceptionally nice staff. We left our doors open the second night, in order to be cooler and slept very good.
Frena advised us on things to do besides the Safari, in eastern Uganda (climb Tororo rock) which was great.

The tour operator was great. Always available and extremely professional.
5/5

I was fortunate enough to have an amazing and experienced guide with the name of Ronald on the trip to Murchison Falls National Park . Ronald made the trip memorable with his knowledge of the different animals and calm and polite manner. All in all great experience.
