My husband and I have been married for 5 years. It was getting close to our 6th anniversary and we wanted to make the next celebrations a bit different. Due to suggestions from his and my friends, we thought Uganda would work for a safari.

We went to Uganda for 12 days which ended up being memorable due to the numerous interesting things we saw and did in the country. We made game drives (Queen Elizabeth N.P), hiked mountains(mountain Sabinyo) tracked golden monkeys (Mgahinga N.P), tracked chimpanzees (Kyambura gorge) and tracked mountain gorillas (Bwindi Forest. We did a lot of trekking and game drives which we never get chance to do in Belgium.

Special thanks go to our Tour operator African Wild Tours and our guide Fredrick who made this safari special.

We went for a birding and primate safari in Uganda this July.I and my wife's main focus was on big animals and primates while my grandmothers' was on birds. African Wild Tours arranged us a safari which included both. We were welcomed by Joseph at Entebbe airport and then had Daniel as our safari guide. The safari was amazing and Daniel made sure we never miss an activity given the heavy rain in Bwindi. We tasted many local foods which we found tasty. Traveling with this company was really nice and we were happy made the right choice.

We have been for 4 days on safari with Hakim.He is really a big asset to this company. All our activities were on the Nile. From whitewater rafting in Jinja, we went to Murchison Falls ,had a boat trip, hiked to top of the falls, and did game drives. Daniel was well equipped with tourism knowledge. He tells you a lot about the animals and birds you see. We also visited rhinos in ziwa sanctuary where we found a separate guide(Sharif) for the activity.

I, my boy friend and another couple have been on a two weeks safari in Uganda and Rwanda under the guidance of Colline and Daniel of African Wild Tours. This was just part of our two months trip in Africa and some thing we had planned for over a year. We went gorilla tracking, chimpanzee tracking, guided walks and game drives, boat trips and made community visits. We enjoyed every thing beyond our expectation. We were taken good care of by the host team and we always felt safe and comfortable. I cant forget to talk about the lessons we learned about the animals. Our guide was very informed about the animal life, plant species, birds, culture and political atmosphere. we enjoyed traveling with Daniel a lot. Colline our driver was very good and the car was good too.(4 WD Jeep) They were both helpful when it came to packing our laggage, setting up tents( we chose a camping safari) and so many other things. I do recommend them to other travelers.

They had many suggestions but we chose to visit Lake Mburo and lake Bunyonyi. Thanks for the professional team, response was in time and every thing went perfect. The driver guide was listening,approachable knowledgable and helpful. The car was perfect for the long journey(clean and in good shape).

It was such an amazing safari i had in Uganda conducted by African Wild Tours.I consulted them nearly 3 days to my arrival at Entebbe and they responded positively. The director asked if it was okay for me to join one of their available group tours and i said yes. It was a six days's trip but turned up to be an adventure of a lifetime.I mostly liked the experience in the Kibale forest, we walked for nearly 3 hours searching for the chimps and the one hour we spend with these wise creatures was extremely interesting. Another interesting bit of this adventure was finding alion which had just killed an antelope in Queen Elizabeth. The zebras in Lake Mburo were too beautiful.Thanks go to African Wild Tours and their employee Daniel for the great work.I recommend this company with out doubt.
