Patient during the planning stage and excellent guide during the safari.
During the planning stages Verdoro Safaris was very helpful with setting up the routes and activities during the safari. The guide we had was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife as well as general questions we had. When the weather was less than great there were alternatives provided from which we could choose. The accommodations they had us in were great and very close to the parks and activities. The vehicle was well maintained and comfortable. We were able to see almost everything that we wanted to see and the only misses were due to weather or just nature not cooperating. Would highly recommend.

Overall very good - but there is room for improvement
Overall very nice service from Helen Jessie and our driver Julius. They do their best to please their customers and are helpful. Preparation of the trip; nice communication but sometimes we had to ask for things that should come automatically like copies of the Chimpanzee and Gorilla Trecking (we still wait for them and our tour is over sind more than two weeks) or a final Travel-Document including them. We booked medium to higher class Lodges but if you do not tell them what you want exactly you will find also low budget hotels instead, because they think so it will be cheaper. Finally we realized they did not know better, since the used some lodges the first time. From an agent I expect that he checks the Lodges that he offers or at least tell the clients, what they can expect. In one Lodge we had to fight for our Delux Room due to miscommunication agent and /Lodge and had to wait almost one hour. Rating for Lodges: 5* for Zero L'Altitude (Room, Food, Environment top), 4.5 * Kyaninga Lodge (title water only minus, super service!), Para Lodge 2* (very old, not clean, food very poor!), Buffalo Safari Lodge 4* (a bit aged, Bathroom minus, very good food), Lake Bunyoni Eco Lodge 1* (not to recommend, not what is promised, very bad food!), Kigambira Safari Lodge 4.5* (Outstanding apart of the pool- dirty not in use), food excellent) Service in all lodges excellent (Manager in Buffalo Lodge should! He is helpful and very friendly. Sometimes he could have helped out of the car instead of letting us crawl out (we are oldies hihihi), but ok, we managed it. If we had a wish he tried to make everything possible he could - Thank you Julius. Regarding food outside of the lodges, mostly good but twice we were not happy regarding place and cleanness - the agency should keep an eye on this, especially if they have clients, who book a medium to higher class trip! Boattour at Lake Mburo Nationalpark: never do this at the end of the trip, it is boring and disappointing - You better let guest have a rest in the beautiful Kigambira Lodge instead, provided pool is usable. Boattrip Lake Bunyony - ok but not exciting. All animal trips were super. One point here, guest should be informed ahead, that they only can get close to the animals (Queen Elizabeth) if they pay $100 extra. Then the guide asked a 10$ extra, paid to him (at the end he tried to ask 20$). He said it is for the people there, but I think, he cheated us and took the money for himself. We neither got a receipt, for the $ 100, we got one. Be carefully with this, don't pay this without official receipt.

Hello Anita & Stephanie, your review cannot go unnoticed it is through this that we grow bigger and better. Please be guided that accommodations vary in correspondent to the tour package for example a luxury accommodation differs from a super luxury accommodation. We will be more specific next time should you ever need to Explore the East Africa region with us in future.
Regarding the Chimpanzee permits they are usually issued on the same day and after tracking every traveler is awarded a certificate. About the extra $100 you paid in the park, we filed in our inquiry to be guided more about it.

My overall experience of Verdoro Safaris is that they are knowledgeable and professional.
From day one, when we started enquiring about a safari and options available, the communication was great and responses were quick. Verdoro managed to put a personalised trip together at a very competitive rate.
During the trip we were cared for in all respects and we always felt safe in the hands of our guide and driver.
Our overall experience was beyond expectations. We can honestly recommend Verdoro Safaris as a good choice if you want to experience Uganda.

Memorable and worry-free safari trip in Uganda
I recently had the pleasure of embarking on a 13-day safari trip in Uganda organised by Verdoro Safaris, and I cannot emphasize enough how extraordinary the experience was! From the moment we arrived until the bittersweet farewell, every aspect of the journey exceeded my expectations. The country's remarkable wildlife, stunning landscapes, warm people, and impeccable organization and communication through Jessie made this safari an unforgettable adventure of a lifetime.
Our journey began in Entebbe, where we were greeted by our knowledgeable and friendly tour guide Roger, who proved to be an invaluable asset throughout the trip. The itinerary was meticulously planned, allowing us to explore a variety of breathtaking destinations. From the vast savannahs of Murchison Falls National Park to the dense forests of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, each location provided its unique charm and an abundance of wildlife. The expertise of our guide Roger was evident as he skillfully navigated through the parks, ensuring we had the best vantage points for observing and capturing unforgettable moments.
Accommodation proposed by Verdoro Safaris throughout the safari was top-notch, ranging from cozy lodges nestled in the heart of nature to luxurious tented camps that offered the perfect blend of comfort and immersion. The lodges provided warm hospitality, delicious local cuisine, and stunning views that truly enhanced the overall experience.
I cannot praise our tour operator Verdoro Safaris enough for their impeccable service and attention to detail. From the seamless logistics to the knowledgeable guide, they ensured that every moment of our safari was memorable and worry-free. Their commitment to sustainable tourism and conservation efforts was also commendable, ensuring that our journey left a positive impact on both the environment and the local communities.

Nice people, wonderfull Uganda round trip,
From the first contact, the company tryed to fullfill our wishes 100%. Roger, the driver was allways carefull and explained us lots of things about politics, economics and social life in this beautifull country. Over all, he knows everything about flora aud fauna.
