Uganda

UGANDA SAFARI HOLIDAYS

This compact country has all the best of Africa and much more. It has the highest concentration of primates in the world, with the mighty mountain gorillas at the top of the list and although comparatively expensive to visit, any trip to Uganda should definitely include a gorilla trek. Away from the mountains, Uganda has stunning freshwater lakes, verdant rolling hills, expansive grasslands and colonial cities all with some of the most welcoming and friendly inhabitants to be found anywhere in Africa. Bordering the vast Lake Victoria to the south, it is also the source of the Nile and has some of the best white water rafting in the world.

Packed with amazing experiences, Uganda is well set up for tourist and this combined with great wildlife, beautiful picture perfect landscapes, and smiling locals makes it the perfect destination for you next African adventure.

TOUR REVIEWS

Conscientious in early communication; knowledgeable, humorous and caring tour guides; an exemplary itinerary that was well organized yet flexible; an overall extraordinary experience. I'd recommend them enthusiastically.

Anthony has been amazing throughout my planning of my tour. He has been very quick in replying to my emails and always answering with everything I wanted to know. I look forward to hopefully planning my next trip through him next year!

Took care of every single detail from prior to our arrival in Cario until we we're dropped of at the airport a week later. Our hotels, tours, meals, and tour group we're all wonderful. Our tour guide was wonderful!
The price was great and the people wonderful!

The trip was excellent and very well run, we have no complaints it was exactly as we expected.The guide was knowledgable and courteous, it ran on time and accommodation was fine.We have no complaints and have now booked again to go to India.
The trip was as above and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, all destinations were as expected and lived up to our expectations.We went with the idea of visiting Turkey and especially Gallipoli which achieved our goals.The historical part of thetrip was very well done and memmorable.

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....
