Good personality and good communication

I visited Uganda for safari with Zootopia game drive safaris The communication was somewhat flexible and instant as Ronnie was always eager to respond to my queries and solved all my concerns. At the beginning I feared traveling alone, but he assured me that he would join the trip together with the guide to give me company as i traversed the beautiful country of Uganda.

I never felt alone on this trip and always felt secured. My guide was Richard and his humble personality gave him a likeable character and he was a good driver indeed. The vehicle was okay and comfortable.

My highlight was the Gorillas in bwindi and indeed this,moment felt surreal and I almost didn't notice the one hour spend watching these gentle giants me by. I couldn't say much about this moment. Surely as,many say, once is limiting when it comes visiting Uganda. I wish to come back and visited more of nature in Uganda and I can go wrong with Zootopia game drive safaris Ltd.

I like him cause he was so friendly and lovely in whatever he do and He's a calm happy guy

last year in June I went to Uganda to connect with hip hop practitioners and build with hip hop culture communities In east Africa through my organization called Boda2Boda.

After my outreaches I partnered with Zootopia game drive safaris to visit some of the game parks and also see the Gorillas.

they gave me a series of itineraries and I chose a 5 days trip through Queen Elizabeth game drive and big 5 viewing, bwindi for Gorillas and lake Bunyonyi for leisure.

I enjoyed the kazinga channel boat trip and the many hippos and birds were amazing to see along the journey.

The guide was Richard was friendly and knowledgeable about animals and he was a good spotter.

The communication with Nicole and Ronnie was consistent and I was impressed by Ronnie's flexibility to adjust to all requests I made even on last minute.

The trip was okay, and mu highlight was ofcos the gorilla experience. These endangered species of mountain Gorillas were glorious and the moments with them in the jungle were mouth watering.

I would do this trip allover again if chance comes again in the near future with Zootopia game drive safaris. They are polite, patient,supportive and professional. Thanks to Ronnie for the smooth organization and for Richard for being a down to earth guide with good experience and the clear love of nature and his country.

He was a generous man, punctual and keeps his word.

Title: **A Memorable Adventure with Zootopia Game Drives safaris:*

October 2022 is visited Uganda with thr idea of pushing my music career anf also do community outreaches with the hiphop community in Uganda.

After I intended to visit the wild side of the country and do a short safari. So I booked with Zootopia Game Drives safari company.

The communication was great from the moment I reached out to them. Nicole and Ronnie where swift and flexible in organizing everything.

From hotel selection because I opted for budget but they gave midrange experience with the Bush lodge in Queen and it was a bonus.

Not everything was rosey because I faced a setback when the guide forgot to fuel the car properly and this made him delay on the pick up on our last day of the trip. This was quite an upsetting experience but he compensated it by extending my evening game drive and Ronnie personally apologized for this.

The trip was a 3-day journey to Kibale National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Parks. Led by the remarkable team of Ronnie and Nicole, and guided by the knowledgeable Elvis, this trip surpassed all my expectations, leaving me with memories that will last a lifetime.

From the very beginning, exceptional professionalism and efficiency in handling issues in detail was displayed especially because from the many operators I contacted Ronnie is the only one who offered me a contract and wrote an invoice/receipt after my payments for bookings.

The quick responses to my inquiries and willingness to address any concerns made the pre-trip communication a breeze.

I truly appreciated the attentiveness, as it instilled confidence in the company's commitment to providing an outstanding experience.

The adventure kicked off in Kibale National Park, renowned for its abundant primate population and lush rainforests. our experienced guide, shared his profound knowledge of the park's wildlife, ecosystems, and conservation efforts.

we embarked on captivating chimpanzee tracking expeditions, enjoyed the playful nature of these majestic creatures. The excitement of spotting various other primates, including red colobus monkeys and black-and-white colobus monkeys, was an absolute delight.

The journey continued to Queen Elizabeth National Park, where the awe-inspiring landscapes and diverse wildlife awaited us. Ronnie and Nicole's meticulous planning ensured that we had ample time to explore the park's diverse habitats. The game drives brought us face to face with majestic lions basking in the sun, graceful elephants and giraffes elegantly grazing on the treetops.

The highlight, however, was undoubtedly the boat safari along the Kazinga Channel, where we witnessed a captivating spectacle of hippos, crocodiles, and a vibrant site of birdlife.

Throughout the trip, the professionalism, expertise, and genuine passion of Elvis shone through. His storytelling skills and ability to spot hidden animals within the parks were truly commendable. Elvis effortlessly showed his love for nature and his commitment to conservation, making each interaction a valuable learning experience.

In summary, my 3-day adventure with Zootopia Game Drives safaris was an extraordinary experience. Ronnie's exceptional organization skills and quick responsiveness during our communication laid the foundation for a seamless journey.

I wholeheartedly recommend Zootopia Game Drives safaris to anyone seeking an inspiring safari experience, and I am eager to embark on another adventure with this exceptional team in the future.

I visited Uganda in June 2022 to compete in Body building competition earlier this year. But after the competition, I wanted to do community outreach and also get to see the beautiful country i was reading about online.

The city setting is not so great, because of the heavy traffic jam and insane motorcycles locally known as bodaboda, it was hectic but rewarding to navigate. I did connect with Zootopia Game Drives safaris through a recommendation from a friend who used their services before.

I reached out to Ronnie the managing Director and he indeed was helpful In organizing my 6 days trip through murchison falls,kibale,queen Elizabeth and bwindi for the Gorillas.

I was so much amazed by the natural beauty of western Uganda and friendliness of the locals. Uganda is indeed the pearl of Africa.

The hotels were budget but clean and the guide Elvis was well knowledgeable and quick to accommodate my questions and requests.

I would do this trip over and over with ZootopiaGameDrives as my choice for an operator

Amazingly well vast with the trip and areas around the country

In the month of July 2022 i visited Uganda and my trip was amazing.

I had alot of skepticism before traveling but because of my friends in Uganda, I changed my mind and went even though my first choice of a travel destination was Kenya.

Being not sure of what to expect, especially after the Ebola issues in the media. I was scared really for safety and health. But I was assured of a grate time after contacting my former colleagues in Uganda who took time to vet and recommend the travel agency i was looking at booking with , Zootopia Game Drives safaris which turned out to be an amazing choice for me.

Quite not very old in the business but what caught my eye to support and choose them was the fact that it was run and managed a young Christian trustworthy couple of Ronnie and Nicole and there promptness in responding to my requests from the time of planning the trip to the time I boarded a plan to Uganda and oh wow the reception at the airport was amazing. They welcomed with flowers and I got to a souvenir gift as well.

The 8 Days trip was amazing and I covered all the Big 5 and the highlight was seeing the elephants and the gentle giants, the mountain gorillas.

As a solo traveler and being Male I felt safe at all times as my guide became my travel companion and I never felt bored.

The lodges were well selected and my midrange trip was amazing.

I was afraid about mosquitos and covid but the preparation from Ronnie who advised me on the necessary medications,vaccinations and check ups before traveling was a life saver.

I was so blown away by the keen eye of the guide to be able to spot all the animals especially the leopards which I couldn't see even with binoculars on. Alex was amazing indeed.

in a nutshell my trip to Uganda was worthwhile and I would repeat it again. Not forgetting the amazing Zootopia Game Drives safaris a company I would always recommend.

The down side was about the dusty roads and long distance covered while driving to the southern parts of the country where most parks are located but otherwise, all in all the trip was amazing.

For the title " Amazingly mind blowing 8 days in Uganda "

So great and reliable

Last month in May when i visited my family in Uganda. I was in no hurry to return to United kingdom without visiting the famous Gorillas in bwindi. My plan was to visit and see these gentle giants and then pass by Kenya for a short beach vacation before I returned home.

I reached out to Zootopia Game Drives safaris and they were so good to me from the word go.

Thanks to Ronnie for being a subtle organizer and prompt enough when it comes to details in my itinerary. All the necessary permits where arranged well even when the application was short time.

I was amazed by there love for conservation work and for Uganda as a country. They even gave me a free gift in return for the booking as a souvenir.

I enjoyed the Gorilla trekking even though I ws 4 months pregnant, they helped me trekk with no difficulties.

The guides were great, at all levels and the hotels booked were spacious and safe with laid out mosquito nets to protect me from malaria exposure. I felt safe and it was worth money.

Finally I was also grateful to know that Ronnie and his company could easily arrange my beach safari to Kenya too and this helped me work with one company for both countries which saved me the hustle.

I would recommend Zootopia Game Drives safaris any day. I promised to use them whenever I travel to Uganda and East Africa.

Knowledgeable, good value for money and nice driver.

Early this year I was In Uganda for business trip. I also planned to visit Uganda and see its beautiful beaches and enjoy the wildlife in Entebbe town before I exited the country.

I got in contact with Zootopia Game Drives through a friend and they organized for me a short trip to Entebbe town, I was privileged to be served by Ronnie the company director, who acted as my guide as well for the day.

We visited Entebbe botanical gardens for nature walks, birds and primates and then we took a boat trip to Mabamba wetlands to search for the elusive Shoebill stork. The journey was worth it.

We had our lunch at KFC at the famous Victoria shopping mall in entebbe and later I retreated to The airport to fly out to Sudan for my other business engagements.

This was budget trip and I enjoyed every detail of the organization. The knowledge of Ronnie, and his passion for wildlife and conservation was eminent, the communication easy during the planning phase, the worth for money invested. I can mention all.

The vehicle was comfortable and spacious enough for all my luggage.

The highlight for me was the shoebill, but also how down to earth Ronnie was, when he offered to push for me the luggage trolley at the airport towards the departure block.

I would recommend Zootopia Game Drives safari company anytime any day.

Very easy and simple to work with...

RONIE is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). I truly enjoyed walking the three of us through the area. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. The sourcr of the River Nile on the end was a great way to end the tour.

The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to all of us. All respect for Ronie who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide!
