Mr Tyler, UK
Our trip lived up to and exceeded our expectations: the agent was excellent, and our Driver/Guide Ben was 100% efficient and very knowledgeable about Wildlife, Birds, Trees and Crops and Uganda Society and Customs. We had a wonderful day getting to and seeing the Mountain Gorillas (very much the highlight), and many other fascinating Game Drives in Reserves.
E. Alonso, Spain
I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you. We had a fantastic trip, everything was just perfect, and mainly was because of you and Great Lakes Safaris. Uganda is an amazing country, really beautiful and with a lot of things to offer.
People are incredibly helpful, friendly and kind. For most of us, was the best trip we have ever done. Furthermore, Ben was a fantastic guide, a really nice person that helped us so much in this wonderful trip!
Thank you for your patience and for making this trip so good. We will recommend Uganda and Great Lakes Safaris to all our family and friends!
J. Spargo, UK
We just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time in Uganda with Great Lakes- Beki was fantastic- we felt safe, he looked after us brilliantly, and worked really hard at giving us the best holiday. Thanks for all your help with the organisation and we will definitely recommend you.
Mr and Mrs Baier, UK
We had a wonderful time and counted ourselves lucky to have such a knowledgeable and easygoing guide in Henry to show us around for 10 days. We have certainly made some long lasting memories and have fallen in love with Uganda – we are already talking about going back one day, although that might not be in the immediate future…
We were so unprepared for the amazing settings and luxury of the accommodation that we are still pinching ourselves sometimes. Apart from that we were extremely happy with the organization and flow of the tour, everything just seemed to go like clockwork which made for a very relaxing holiday indeed.
That is also thanks to you, of course, and I would like to thank you very much for your patience and fantastic communication in the lead-up to our trip. We have had a lot of interest from friends and colleagues, and if we can persuade them that Uganda is the place to go we will more than certainly recommend Great Lakes Safaris!
Thank you once more and hope to deal with you again in the future!
M. Maloney, USA
We are back from Uganda and over our “Jet lag”, and we just wanted you to know that we had a wonderful experience there, especially on the Great Lakes Tour. Our driver, Bernard, was terrific. He took very good care of us. Not only did he help us physically, but he was very knowledgeable about the animals and birds. He made sure that we saw everything we wanted to see and that on our walks we had a Park Ranger all to ourselves so that we didn’t have to hold others back, and yet we got to see as much as we possibly could. I can’t say enough good things about him.
Our accommodations were all excellent as well. We enjoyed the cabins and/or Deluxe tents that were situated away from others so that we could enjoy the wilderness by ourselves. We especially liked the Ishasha Wilderness Camp. The food was very good throughout as well, but our favorite was the Primate Lodge in Kibale. The chef there could have cooked for a 5-Star hotel. Not only did it taste heavenly, but the presentation was beautiful too.
We have hundreds of pictures and wonderful memories of Uganda. Thank you so very much for all your help.
Mr Moran, USA
We returned from our safari some time ago back in March, but I wanted to let you know we had a really good time in Uganda. Gerald was a great guide and driver and all the people of Uganda were incredibly friendly. Everything was pretty much perfect. We have been talking up Uganda and Great Lakes Safaris to our friends. The highlight by the way was the Chimp habituation experience (no offense to the Gorillas). I cannot express how amazing it was to spend the whole day with them.
Mr and Mrs Phil, UK
We are back and had a fantastic time. Overall, it was just as we expected and of course the main reason and highlight for going to Uganda was for the gorillas, and we weren’t disappointed!
Our guide Beki was great. He was a more “mature” man and had a wealth of experience and knowledge of guiding and driving. He was professional all of the time and a great host. He’s worked for Great Lakes for 10 years which says loads about the company.
All of the lodges were wonderful and all in all it was a wonderful trip. Uganda is a very beautiful country and it was good to see it by road as the communities and people are so interesting.
