Gisteren teruggekomen vanuit Zanzibar, waar we o.a. alle ervaringen van onze rondreis door Oeganda  konden “verwerken”. En dat waren er nogal. Wat een super mooi land en wat een lieve mensen en wat hebben we genoten. Iedere dag weer nieuwe dingen zien en beleven, het  was echt super. Onze gids Gerald was echt top, echt een hele lieve, rustige man en niet te vergeten een hele goede chauffeur die altijd voor ons klaar stond. Het spotten van het wild was minder dan we gewend waren, maar daar hadden we op gerekend. Nu zijn we wat het spotten van dieren betreft erg verwend, zeker als je al een aantal landen in Afrika bezocht hebt. Maar door het zien van de boom klimmende leeuwen, de tracking naar de Chimpansees en natuurlijk de Gorilla’s in Bwindi wat echt zo gaaf was , maakte dit hierdoor meer dan goed.

Met al hebben we echt een hele mooie onvergetelijke reis gemaakt waarin we erg veel gezien hebben en zeker nog veel aan terug zullen denken.

Yesterday we returned from Zanzibar where we have been able to reflect our Uganda roundtrip and the many experiences. What a beautiful country and friendly people, and how much did we enjoy! Every day we saw and experienced new things, it was absolutely great. Our guide Gerald was amazing, a very calm and sweet man and not to forget an incredible driver who was always there for us. Sightseeing of wild animals was slightly less than we have been used to, but that was not a suprise for us. We have visited many other African countries and are rather spoiled in terms of the animals we have seen here. But viewing the tree climbing lions, the chimpanzee tracking and of course the mountain gorillas in Bwindi was so marvellous that it easily made up for this.

All in all we had a wonderful and unforgettable safari of which we will often think back with sweet memories!

I just returned from a safari in Uganda.  We stayed at Mweya Safari Lodge for 4 nights and Ben was our guide for the 5 days.  He is the main reason I am writing this email.  He was excellent!!  I didn’t know exactly what to expect from this trip having never travelled to Africa before.  Ben obviously loves his job and it shows.  We felt completely taken care of the whole time.  He made us feel very special.  We felt all he cared about was making our trip the trip of a lifetime, and he succeeded.  His knowledge of the area, culture, and animals was very extensive.

I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful trip and give Ben the praise he deserves for such a wonderful job.

The trip was amazing and I’m officially in love with Uganda and gorillas. It is really once in a lifetime experience and defenitely worth doing it. Everything was organized excellent, accommodation was really decent, people are really nice in Uganda, scenery is stunning, gorillas are just like us or we are like them!

Just wanted to say that our holiday was truly amazing and so well organized!! Please do pass on our thanks to Distinctive Africa and also to Great Lakes Safari who were absolutely brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble for our amazing and informative guide Gerald even finding me a cane knife (machete) that I brought back to UK for tackling the brambles in my garden…don’t ask but I have always wanted one!!

Gerald was superb identifying all the flora and fauna for us and we saw LOADS from white winged warblers and African Fin foot on Lake Mburo to lions, hyena and everything in Queen Elizabeth park…and he got us more anti-malarias when I discovered I hadn’t packed all the packets.

We enjoyed the trip to Murchison Falls National Park and it was a great pleasure to overnight in Budongo Eco Lodge. The food was excellent. I think it was the biggest experience for my students and for my teachers in the life.

Just to let you know we are safely home after our very enjoyable trip to Uganda and we wanted to thank you for organizing everything and giving us Beki as our guide/driver. It was a pleasure to be with him for the three weeks and he took care of everything in a very professional yet friendly manner.

Mr Stuiver and Ms van der Beek, Netherlands

Thanks so much for a wonderful safari experience, this and last week. We had a great trip, saw gorillas, lions, buffalos, elephants etc. The trip was well organized, lodges were OK (in line with expectations, not so much luxury). Our guide Abasi drove very well, also considering the poor roads we encountered….

The best trip was the gorilla track, rain didn’t matter, was a fantastic experience. Local guides were also very friendly and helpful. Boat trip safaris was also very cool and very effective to see many animals as well. All in all we had a very good week/trip, thanks a lot!

Mr and Mrs Hinz, Germany

We are back home again and I wanted to thank you for the great job you did on planning our vacation in Uganda. We had wonderful days in your country and enjoyed it very much. The lodges were all very nice, the setting often quite spectacular and we were amazed by the friendliness of the people in Uganda. Davis did a very good job in guiding us and we very much enjoyed his company. Thank you!

Mr and Mrs Parker, Canada

Our trip with Robert was quite extraordinary. The Ndere Cultural Centre dancing and dinner was just fantastic.  The show was mesmerizing and beautiful.  The food was scrumptious.  Not only that, but the Centre was the best accommodation we stayed in while in Uganda.

If we were to do it again, we would also stay at the accommodation at the Adrift rafting camp. The Adrift accommodation is a jewel in the area. Thanks for looking after us!
