EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION AND GOOD SAFARI GUIDES
We booked our 10 days safari with Gorillas to Uganda with Christopher from African Rock Safaris LTD on last minute!
Big thanks to the team for being patient and excellently communicating to me, given the “so many questions” me and my group had as this was our first time to Uganda and East Africa in general.
The tour options they offered were so tidy and detailed and with very competitive prices compared to what other operators were offering online.
We really acknowledge the choices of the lodges/hotels Christopher chose for us, all with great hospitality and location and amongst them, we liked Via Via Guest house in Entebbe, Mpogo lodge in Lake Mburo National park, Pumba Safari Cottages in Queen Elizabeth National park and Ride 4 a Woman in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National park.
Our driver guide Ceasar was on a platinum level as he knew all the wildlife in each National park, was very accommodative to each of us and spoke excellent English! I would really recommend him.
Overall, our trip amidst all the COVID-19 scuffle was a once in a lifetime adventure with the major highlights being; Getting to do Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National park, a walking Safari and getting up close with Giraffes and Zebras in Lake Mburo National park and finally the playful Chimpanzees in Kalinzu forest.
Thanks so much Christopher and the African Rock Safari team & will share your website to all our friends.

Absolutely fantastic tour, covering all the regions of Uganda
I really appreciated how the company stayed in touch with me all the time between the booking in April and my trip in December - due to the pandemics we needed to rearrange a couple of things quite spontaneously (the original plan was to visit Rwanda as well), but they managed to offer me an alternative route, which allowed me to see all the most important places and national parks in Uganda in two weeks.
Safaris were very professional - my driver Stanley seemed to know literally everything about all the animal species we kept spotting - there was not a single question left unanswered. Lodges were also of good or very good quality. I would definitely recommend African Rock Safaris.

Highly Recommended Tour Agency!
I strongly recommend Christopher and African Rock Safaris to everyone interested in traveling to Rwanda. Christopher is very knowledgeable, super responsive and very nice to work with. He first assisted us in creating a trip according to our specifications. He immediately understood what we were interested in, and the plan he created was exactly what we had in mind. All of Christopher’s recommendations proved themselves during our trip. His local team is great, and they made their best throughout the entire trip. Christopher continued to follow, and was always available to assist. When we had to shorten our trip due to unexpected COVID-19 limitations at our home country, Christopher refunded everything we paid for the part of the trip we had to cancel. Christopher is really the best agent you can hope for.

What an absolutely stunning African experience for our family of 4!
This was an awesome 8 days. We’re a family of 4 (kids 7 and 9) and this itinerary encompassed Murchison Falls NP and QE NP. Chris picked us up from the airport and was with us every step of the way. Everything ran like clockwork and Chris and our driver William were fun, informative and professional throughout. The dream team!
Before we left Chris gave us a series of options that covered a range of budgets and we chose the one that best met our needs. It didn’t disappoint. Highlights were watching the herds of giraffes in Murchison and the chimp reek in QE although my kids will say the baby lions in QE.

Amazing! Just loved it !
We had a 10 day family trip to Uganda and Rwanda with African rock safaris. The communication was always timely and concise, despite the many questions I always raised because this was our first time to Africa-Uganda and Rwanda to be precise.
Overall, seeing the Gorillas in Bwindi impenetrable forest National Park was a lifetime experience to all us. We loved the Chimpanzee trekking in Kalinzu central forest reserve. My mum love the entertainment from the Batwa pygmy tribe of Buhoma.
Given that my family loves wildlife, we were full of joy with the sights of big mammals of Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison falls National Park. On the issue of accommodation, the overall selection was good BUT not excellent. Personally, I loved Via Via Guest House in Entebbe on our first night, Ride 4 a woman in Bwindi, I loved Lake Nkuruba Nature reserve near Kibale, Baboon Safari Resort in Queen Elizabeth National park and Pakuba Safari Lodge inside Murchison falls National park
Our guide Joseph was well informed with a sense of humor, fast at spotting and identifying animals from a distance and knew a lot of birds-Why my dad loves so much!
Overall, we were all happy and hope to come back so time in the future and will continue to recommend African Rock Safaris LTD.

Very good organisation and experience, recommended for both those traveling with family and friends
We enjoyed the 9day Safari tour, from the pick up to the drop. Everything ran smoothly, with Stanley being our guide who is really expert in his sector. He’s friendly and a good company for the entire tour. Landscapes and The experience speak for themselves, from the gorilla trekking to the experience in several national parks such as Murchison falls and Queen Elizabeth, it was amazing and moving to see animals in their natural habitat. All the lodges chosen were amazing with really few tourists which made the overall experience even better and unique. The only thing we didn’t like was that 2 lodges out of 6 we booked was unexpectedly booked out, yet we knew this the day of the staying only and we weren’t given the opportunity to choose another ones, which were chosen by the agency instead. While one of these two was maybe even better than the chosen one, the second was not that good instead. This is the only reason we give 4 stars out of 5, but still an excellent tour, experience and people within the agency, really recommended for people of all ages.

We had amazing five days in Uganda with African Rock Safaris all managed by Christopher the proprietor. It was through Queen Elizabeth, Bwindi forest and the relaxing Lake Bunyonyi.
The trip was everything and more we had expected, with perfect locations for our accommodations and a fun guide Moses all through the journey, he was full of knowledge about Uganda. He knew everyone everywhere we went.
We shall not forget the life-time experience of the gorillas, spectacular views from the lodge rooms, great food every where. We shall visit again, Uganda is incredible.

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.
