Fantastic Gorillas and Wildlife Safari
We had a family tour earlier this year with African Rock Safaris LTD to Bwindi. Seeing the Gorillas was definitely our highlight (even though it rained in Bukola during the trekking) and thanks to Christopher for his excellent communication and flexibility, who booked the tour, secured us Gorilla permits despite our late notice and interest for the tour!
Our 2 nights in Buhoma were at Ride 4 a Woman whose staffs were so hospitable and helpful all the time. I recommend this lodge too.
The tour to Lake Mburo was also awesome with an overnight at Mpogo lodge. We really liked the community tour of the farm and milking of the Ankole Long horned cattle. I really recommend Mpogo Lodge.
Lastly, many thanks to the choice of our driver guide Joseph Jazz for his wide scope of knowledge in Wildlife and birds of East Africa. Cheers to him.
I really recommend African Rock Safaris LTD for anyone intending to go for a Safari to Uganda.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Queen Elizabeth National Park
We had a great trip with Christopher as our guide and William as our driver. We went Gorilla trekking in the Impenetrable Forest which was absolutely fabulous. We got to sit and watch mountain gorillas go about their business from just yards away. We stayed 1 night at Ride 4 a Woman hostel, which was clean, with good food and good service and I would highly recommend again. We next went up to queen elizabeth national park, staying in the Enjojo lodge which was beautiful, in the trees, looking out of the savannah. We had a beautiful cottage and enjoyed excellent service and food. We drove to the northern part of the park seeing, elephants, lions, water buffalo, warthogs, baboons and many other animals. We enjoyed a cruise on Lake Edward and saw many hippos, elephants and other water animals. We stayed in the baboon safari resort, which is perched overlooking the plains where you can see herds of elephants walking. On our last day we went chimpanzee trekking. On the whole Christopher who runs the company was an excellent communicator and handled all of the logistics efficiently and quickly. We had a wonderful trip and would highly recommend the company again. William our driver was also fabulous and very knowledgeable as well. Everyone should see the Mountain Gorillas if you are able.

Amazing safari experience
Communication from the safari company was fabulous. They responded quickly and were extremely helpful in helping our group prepare for safari.
The driver and guide were phenomenal. They were both extremely knowledgeable (about the wildlife, region, etc) and fun, personable individuals with whom we had a wonderful 4 day adventure.
They organized everything, and the lodging they found was great. The places were clean, safe and tailored for the western traveler (which we appreciated).
The tours themselves were great as well. The driver really went all out to make sure we saw some amazing wildlife. And as stated above, the driver and guide were both extremely knowledgeable about the animals and birds we were seeing.
Without a doubt I would do this trip again and book it with this same group. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience!!

Amazing tour with African Rock Safaris
I had an amazing tour with African Rock Safaris visiting the Sipi Falls, Pian Upe game reserve and Kidepo Valley National Park. It was incredible how close we could get to the Sipi Falls and witness the strong force of nature. In Pian Upe we saw Ostriches and Kidepo National Park was absolutely stunning and simply breath-takingly beautiful. Everything was very well organised, with delicious food and great accommodation. The communication went smoothly, thank you Christopher for organising this perfect trip!

The most memorable Safari Experience
I had an amazing time in Uganda thanks to Christopher and my guide William. While searching for a tour, the prices offered by this company was very competitive so I decided to go ahead. I was greeted warmly by Christopher and he spent time with me, making me feel at home and also gave a briefing about my tour.
While on tour, the accommodation quality was great at all the National parks along with good food everywhere. The highlight of the tour was Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi National park and watching the Tree Climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National park. William knew the best possible sighting spots for lions and we found them after an hour of searching.
I had the best safari experience and did not feel like leaving the country. I will definitely go back with my family and complete the parks I missed due to limited time. Especially Murchison Falls and Kidepo Valley which William mentioned are great parks.
I would recommend African Rock Safaris for a memorable trip without burning a hole in your pocket.
