Gorilla trekking and safari
Exceptional trip with very accommodating, professional and informative driver and guide, Levan. The gorilla trekking surpassed expectations as we got up close with the family and took incredible photographs. The accommodation was very comfortable throughout, with the Queen Elizabeth NP lodge a particular highlight. The stop off in Lake Mburo NP was arguably the best safari of our trip and was worth doing, while the Ishasha sector safari had very limited wildlife. If we were doing this trip again we would possibly leave off this part as the road down to Queen Elizabeth NP wasn't great from here. Overall, an incredible experience which did not disappoint!

Exceptional experience: walking with rhinos, boating above hippos, walking under chimpanzees
Wildlife is amazing!
The weather in December was much hotter that I expected. Food in lodges are amazing. People are friendly and kind. We always felt safe (family with 1 kid), not just in the lodges but when we wandered around alone in the villages (we used public taxis too).
Roads are dirty so transportation is slow.
Our guide was really helpful, creative in problem solving, getting along with my kid very well, educated and well informed.

A tourist will see the Mountain Gorilla only found in these parts of Africa, willspot large water mammals, several cats including the tree climbing lions and over 100 bird species. Mouth taking water falls etc. The people are quite friendly, food is good, weather good throughout the year in most parts of the country.

We booked a private tour with Kajie Safari for 6 days and the experience has been most rewarding. Our lovely Riward guide has been a pleasure to share those days with him. We speak very little English and it has been a great help for us (he has been a great English teacher

Wonderful tour! Well organised and reliable tour company.
With some trepidation we investigated using a tour company based in Kampala rather than the UK. Caroline responded within 10 minutes to my initial online enquiry through this website, and from then on we knew we were in safe and competent hands. Caroline listened to our requirements and worked with us to develop a packed but amazing 17 night experience, taking in Murchison Falls, Kibale, QE Park and Ishasha, Bwindi, Mgahinga National Park, lake Mburo and 3 nights recovering on Lake Victoria! She then arranged Richard to be our guide and driver - an excellent recommendation. We found him to be safe and considerate at all times, extremely knowledgeable, not only about the wildlife but all things Ugandan, and a great 'spotter'.
All the accommodation Carol recommended, in mid range lodges, was clean, comfortable, well located and varied in style. We would not hesitate to recommend Gorilla Link Tours - any anxieties we initially had about working with a local tour company were totally unfounded and we discovered we had much to gain by doing so - not just financially but thanks to her wealth of knowledge and dedication to her customers.

Uganda: exotic and beautiful
Uganda is a first rate travel destination. The weather is fantastic. The green hills are so beautiful with workers in the tea fields. The forests are full of wildlife and amazing birds fly all around. When you leave you will feel blessed to have been there. The people are the best; friendly, as the greet you with ‘welcome’ you will really feel that you are.
