It was the best time of our lives on a tour

Victoria listened and understood what my husband and I hoped to experience on our first trip to Uganda. She always responded to our lengthy emails regarding the questions and was so patient even with our ever changing itinerary and wants. Her recommendations proved to be perfect and fit our budget. On tour, our guide Nixon was fantastic and took care of us throughout our stay. The lodges were lovely lodges with great service, the Land cruiser vehicle we used was clean and in good condition, amazing nature and wildlife especially the tree-climbing lions and gorillas were spectacular!!! Highly recommend this company and would use them again.

Amazing 3 days to queen Elizabeth tour

I and my 3 friends were pleased with Nsavi safaris. The team was extremely helpful in what was a challenging time to arrange our short holiday. First, our flight from Kigali got delayed so we arrived hours later than we had hoped and planned. we had the mandatory tests at the airport, waited for the results and as soon as we had them, Nicolas drove us to Queen Elizabeth as we had to maximize the short 3 days visit. The stay at Mweya safari Lodge was amazing and we woke up to the sound of hippos in the morning. Elephants came close to the lodge on our second night and it was the first time to see them that close. The game drive and boat ride were great too. Would 100% use again.

Unforgettable safari!!

We had an amazing 5 days safari in Uganda (6 people) and everything was wonderful. This was our first safari experience in Africa and it was much better than expected! The tour was well organized every step and timely communication from the office team who answered questions that we had to make this first trip possible even with COVID 19.
Our trip was mainly to Kidepo and Murchison. Kidepo was a long journey but worth it as we saw a lot along the way and the wildlife didn’t disappoint. Our guide Francis was knowledgeable, friendly and made us feel safe the whole trip.
We had a surprise morning bush breakfast in kidepo bush, spotted lions on the rock, giraffes, buffalos, visiting the village of Karamojong people. Murchison was a whole different experience, we spotted hyenas and leopards had a sundowner where we had the tastiest pineapple and small sweet bananas. The last day we visited the top of the falls,, this is a must-see!
On our way back, visited the rhino sanctuary and saw 3 rhinos on our guided walk here. Overall our trip was perfect and we look forward to visiting very soon.

Trip of a lifetime

My tour was planned and organised by Sarah who provided a friendly, efficient and personalised service that ensured I got the trip of a lifetime.

The booking process was simple. After a prompt response to my initial enquiry, Sarah listened to my request, presented the options and even made suggestions to enhance my trip.

I had numerous questions, that were always answered in a timely manner and when I was forced to make some amends to the itinery she remained patient and ensured I still got the trip that I had been hoping for.

The tour was magnificent (Queen Elizabeth National Park and Bwindi), I was really impressed by my guide Herbert who was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. Additionally, all of the lodges provided a high standard of accommodation and were very welcoming.

Exceeded all expectations and hopes!

Nsavi Safaris was an amazing experience from beginning to end. The reservation process was smooth, their prices were very good, extremely friendly and welcoming to Uganda, and our tour guide, Jacob was incredible! They did a fantastic job of working with the time we had and our budget. We saw the big 5 and so many other incredible animals and sights. Our trip to Uganda would not have been the same without them and we are so thankful! I’d recommend Nsavi to anyone looking to experience the best of Uganda!

NSAVI safaris were thoughtful, prompt, and kind

From first contact I knew NSAVI would be excellent. Victoria and the team responded to our request addressing the small details from our brief, while the other operators just sent us a generic tour plan that they probably send to all prospective tourists. We live in the UAE and wanted to do Gorilla trekking over a 4 day period, so we needed a safari company that was prompt and professional and this is exactly what we received from NSAVI.

Victoria and the operations manager were waiting at our guest house in Entebbe when we arrived to introduce us to our driver and to give us an orientation before wishing us a lovely holiday in Uganda. Our driver was knowledgeable, kind hearted, and an expert at handling the land cruiser through through some tough terrain. The lodges were also excellent, and needless to say the Gorilla Trekking was a truly memorable experience.

We left Uganda with a great impression of the people and the country and a big part of that is down to the efforts of Victoria and her team.

Victoria was an absolute delight who went out of her way to make sure our tour went smoothly

We travelled as a group of 4 to see the mountain gorillas at Bwindi Impenetrable forest. Firstly all the accommodation that we stayed at was outstanding with wonderful service, delicious food and clean and comfortable rooms. Victoria met us pre and after our tour and was determined that our trip ran smoothly, she is an infectious character.
Our guide and driver was Francis and he was awesome, his happy and easy going demeanour made the trip even more enjoyable and any request was dealt without any stress. We even managed to introduce him to some Aussie rock and had The Angels firing in the car.
I couldn’t recommend this company high enough.

You have to choose Nsavi Safaris for your tour in Uganda! They exceed all expectations!

Nsavi Safaris is a recently founded agency, but brings a lot of experience. We went on a 3 day gorilla trekking with them and they really went beyond all expectations! The whole trip was perfectly planned, even the tiniest details had its purpose and aimed to satisfy us and give as much as it was possible during a 3 day trip. Our guide was Jacob, a friendly, smiling guy, who was knowledgeable, never tired of our questions and was also a good driver. The accommodation near Bwindi (Ichumbi Lodge) and at Lake Bunyonyi (Birds Nest Resort) were astonishing, with great people and perfect food. Jacob and the agency owner, Victoria made sure we taste Ugandan specialties, like rolex and baked green bananas. We stopped by an ananas street vendor where we were offered the worlds best, freshly chopped ananas and we also visited a drum manufacturer. Jacob even took care when selecting the group for us for the trekking and he stopped the car whenever we wanted to take pictures. The car was comfortable too. The trip was amazing, all went so smoothly you only could dream of. They even cared about the environment by not distributing small plastic water bottles during the trip, but we received metal bottles as gifts and those were refilled when needed. We even received Ugandan coffee and myself an African-themed cosmetic bag as presents, which was super kind. Victoria was always responsive during our correspondence to plan the trip, tried to help us to get travel insurance. She even visited us in person at the accommodation back in Entebbe. Nsavi Safaris is the agency you have to travel with when in Uganda, as EVERYTHING WAS MORE THAN PERFECT and they really DID THEIR BEST to satisfy needs!!! We are really thankful that we could have such an experience in Uganda.

Friendly Informative and helpful everything they could do to make our tour awesome was done

Organised the gorilla tour with NSAVI and then our airline cancelled our flight so we arrived about 6 hours later than expected to the hotel in Entebbe and much to my surprise and delight Vicki and Francis where there at the hotel to meet us and make sure we arrived safely and were looked after when we did. The hotel was awesome with a well needed sundowner shared with our guide and Vicki before a briefing about our adventure the next day.
Francis was awesome on the long drive from Entebbe to Bwindi stopping when we needed to so we could take photos and look at the amazing scenery and wildlife. We stopped at a local village and sampled some local foods before continuing on.
Overnight at Ichumbi Lodge and a bit of walk and leg stretch through the nearby local village meeting some of the local youngsters built an appetite for a delicious dinner.
Next morning up early and a short drive before arriving at the jump off point Francis arranged guides and let us know about the costs and who and how much to tip making it so easy to relax and enjoy the whole event.
The walk in to the jungle was not overly difficult and the gorilla family was accommodating meeting us half way and the we got to spend a wonderful hour with the silver-back gorilla and his family.
At the end we got to enjoy a free African back massage that would enthral 4wd aficionados on the drive out. A stop and boat trip on Lake Bunyoni to our overnight accommodation relaxed us all and then quite a few drinks and a lovely meal ended a long but exciting day
Next day the drive back and Francis introduced us to his favourite music and we introduced him to the Australian band The Angels. We stopped and met some locals at a fruit stall on a country road and sampled some delicious fresh fruit as sustenance on the trip back to the hotel
A fantastic journey with a guide that became as much a mate as a guide. No question was too silly and Francis had pretty much all the answers
On our arrival Vicki was there to greet us and to make sure our trip was everything we wanted it to be. Job done guys
I can recommend NSAVI Safaris with the highest possible praise, bent over backwards to make us feel comfortable safe and secure and to give us the experience of a lifetime with the mountain gorillas
