The chimps and gorilla experiences were wonderful. I loved all the places I stayed, but Mihingo Lodge was especially magical. I think this is one of the most unique lodges in all of Africa. I would recommend that you book clients for two nights there.
I came away from my trip thinking that Uganda is probably the most beautiful country in Africa…

Thank you so much for arranging a visit to your lodge, we had a great time! Byron and all the rest of the staff were really hospitable, a beautifully relaxed atmosphere. Of course seeing the chimps was the highlight, so thanks once more

Carolyn and I really enjoyed all aspects of the safari trip. Everything went smoothly and we had lots of fun. Our guide, Gerald, was the best. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, as well as considerate and attentive to all our needs. His English was excellent; his driving amazing and was undoubtedly one of the best guides we have ever had.
Primate Lodge Kibale, Mweya Safari Lodge and Buhoma Lodge were excellent in all regards. The nature guides and wildlife viewing during our trip were excellent and most enjoyable. The chimpanzee trek was fantastic. In Queen Elizabeth Park, we really enjoyed our boat ride on the Kazinga Channel. The highlight was when we saw a leopard walking along the shore. We were also very happy to see elephants, lions, kob and other wildlife during our safari rides with Gerald in QE Park. As to the mountain gorillas in Bwindi, what a thrill that was to follow them through the steep jungle for an hour!
All in all, the trip was outstanding. Uganda, the Pearl of Africa, is indeed a great country to visit on so many different levels – the people, the scenery, the wildlife, etc. We will enjoy the warm memories of our trip for years to come.

Onze safari door Oeganda was geweldig. We hebben veel wild in Murchison Falls en in Queen Elizabeth NP gezien. Bwindi was een zware trekking vanwege de erg steile berghelling, maar gelukkig hadden we de gorilla’s na 1:30 uur al gevonden. Dit was een geweldige ervaring en zeker iets om niet te vergeten en we hebben enorm genoten van de mooie bergachtige omgeving van Bwindi.
De accommodaties waren voor ons perfect en hadden in een enkele geval zelfs minder luxe gemogen (Primate Lodge). De activiteiten zelf waren geheel naar wens en ook Beki deed het als gids erg goed. We hebben daarom erg genoten van de safari die we gemaakt hebben!
Our safari in Uganda was great. We saw a lot of wildlife in Murchison Falls and in Queen Elizabeth NP. Bwindi was a challenging tracking because of the steep hills, but fortunately we already found the gorillas after 1.5 hours. This was a fantastic experience, absolutely something to never forget and we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful mountainous surroundings of Bwindi.
The accommodations were perfect for us and in some cases could have been even less luxury (Primate Lodge). The activities were nice and also our guide Beki was great. Therefore we absolutely enjoyed our safari!

I just wanted to write once again to say a HUGE thank you for such a wonderful trip for the team. They had a fantastic time and were just delighted with everything. Thank you for all your help and patience- we couldn’t have asked for a more helpful tour company. We’ll definitely use you again!

We are safely back home again after our trip to Uganda. I wanted to write and say thank you to Great Lakes Safaris for two excellent safaris – we really had a fantastic encounter with the gorillas and enjoyed our time in Murchison Falls National Park very much. Both drivers (Bosco and Moses) were excellent and good at both entertaining us and the children which was much appreciated! With thanks again for all your help and support in arranging our safaris in Uganda.
