A summer in the beautiful country of Uganda

To start off- Safety was a big concern when we first arrived but we were taken care of and guided very well by Mr. Francis, a tour guide from the company. It was overall a culturally enriching trip, we got to see a lot in very less time, which was good. The overall plan for the trip was good and we thus made it possible for us to fit a lot of activities that interested us. Highly recommend this service.

Francis Rukundo found the animals!

The experience that took my breath away was watching a lioness feed. But my camera and I got to see so many additional things and animals that were magnificent. Our guide Francis Rukundo was patient with my goals. My experience with Africa was a photography dream come true. More importantly, my respect for the magnificent landscape and the animals that call it home encouraged me to have a more proactive attitude about helping to preserve Africa's treasures.

Francis is a wild animal magnet!

We had an extraordinary safari in Murchison Falls National Park with Francis Rukundo, founder of Nature Connect Safaris Uganda. He not only had an uncanny sense of where to find wild animals but he was very knowledgeable about the behavior and habitat of various species. He also respected the animals and tried to make our impact on them and their environment minimal. Having said this, I got the best photos of lions I have every taken anywhere in Africa, particularly a female eating an antelope at sunset. I marveled at the fact that he was able to spot a leopard in the bush that was incredibly well camouflaged.
In addition to his ability to ferret out elusive creatures, Francis is very affable. We felt so comfortable with him, it was almost like he was an old friend. We asked a thousand questions and he patiently answered our queries. He is proficient at speaking English and can tell you about cultural and wildlife issues. He provided us with excellent service and we were always excited to see him. I look forward to traveling with Francis again someday. I highly recommend him and his company.

An unbelievable cultural experience, breathtaking vistas, and magnificent wildlife!

We loved our experience with Nature Connect Safaris Uganda! Our guide was Francis. He made us feel welcome and safe, and could not have been nicer.

The food and accommodation were beyond our expectations but what really made the trip was our guide.
Francis went above and beyond at all times to make our trip spectacular. He was knowledgeable about wildlife and gave us a local’s perspective of the country.

The pure beauty of Uganda was breathtaking, from the power of Murchison Falls, to the ruins of Pakuba. What really made it an unbelievable experience was the friendship, warmth and generosity of the Ugandan people. We highly recommend this company. Ask for Francis, he’s more than just a guide, he’s a wonderful ambassador for Uganda.

Francis was an awesome tour guide, very hospitable & accommodating, it was very educational & fun!

The communications were excellent; we needed to be picked up a little further out from Kampala & Francis was very accommodating. He kept in close contact & was a very fun guide! We felt very safe the whole trip & made it everywhere on time. The safari tour was incredible!! Getting up early was so worth it & we had a great time adventuring around searching for animals. We got to see a lot of awesome things! This whole trip far exceeded expectations. I would definitely go with this company again!

Francis is Great!

My wife and I had the opportunity to see the Murchison Falls area with Guide Frances, founder of Nature Connect Safaris. He was friendly, knowledgeable and made the whole experience exciting. He worked hard to find the animals we wanted to see.
But a good safari experience is more than just seeing animals. Your Guide is a Host to a whole new world. Francis was a gracious Host and welcomed us into his "home and backyard" with a sense of warmth and genuineness.
We hope to return soon Francis!
Keep the jeep warmed up for us!

These guys make you feel like you are travelling with friends!!

I had an amazing, engaging, and tailor-made tour with Francis and his team. They made us feel very welcome in Uganda and were the perfect link to get in touch with locals. I consider Francis a very knowledgable guy. He is an excellent communicator, who knows everything about wildlife and their behavior as well as the country's history.

He guided my travel companion and me through the Murchisons falls park, even as a seasoned traveler in Africa I find Murchisons falls area stunning and unique, a hidden gem.

When traveling to Uganda, I would recommend Francis and his team because they provide a fantastic tour and experience. Also, we kept in touch, and Francis advised us on where to go in Uganda and Rwanda even after we finished our trip with "Nature Connect Safaris."

Great and so helpful, they are like friends. And do their job excellent, humble and modern

My contact person with this great organisation was Francis. He is smart and knows a lot about the nature/wildlife, different activities and about Uganda in general.

I consider him as a friend and guide, he helped us in Murchison Falls with activities. He is a man of his word, communicates very well and this there on time when you made an appointment.

After Murchison Falls, we still kept contact with him because he gave us advice about beautiful places and lodges/campsites.

Thank you Francis, your service gave our trip unforgettable experiences!
