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

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!

I was pleased and impressed with the experience in booking and obtain all necessary documents in a timely manner. I am looking forward to my tour and hope the ground experience it just as good. This trip is my dream/bucket list trip.

Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
Excellent

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.

Everything about the trip was thought through, fine-tuned , and marvelous. From Ant Horribin helping us arrange the trip, to rep Waled Ali, and our guide Big Mo, we could not have asked for a better team. Our sincere thanks to them.
