We had an amazing holiday in East Africa. Our only regret was that our visit went to fast, I wish that we had been able to spend more time in each place, particularly in Uganda.
I did not know what to expect, as there is not a lot of publicity or promotion of Uganda in our country, however we were very pleasantly surprised! Uganda is a beautiful country with wonderful friendly people, which has not yet been spoilt by commercialism. Our driver-guide was the amazing Gerald, who is very knowledgeable, considerate, tolerant and also has a great sense of humour. Our accommodation at Mihingo Lodge and Buhoma Lodge was wonderful, the food and service was perfect, we all wanted to spend more time at these places. The Gorilla tracking was the hardest physical thing I have ever done (straight up and down two mountains) but was well worth it. We got to see a 3 month old baby and others at very close range.
Every part of our holiday in East Africa was planned and carried out with precision. We always felt very welcome and comfortable and would happily recommend these holiday destinations and travel companies to everybody. Thank you for making my trip of a lifetime.
Mr and Mrs Tillman, USA
We want to thank you for all your help and guidance. We had a wonderful time in Uganda and the itinerary worked out great. It took all Linda had to make it to the gorillas, but it was worth it. Bwindi is a neat place for a whole variety of reasons. The chimpanzees out did the gorillas and exceeded our expectations. They were hooting and howling and chasing one another. Lake Mburo turned out to be much better than we expected too. It’s a nice little park and we could easily have spent a couple days there.
Our driver, Robert, was a very good and safe driver, a knowledgeable guide, and an all-around nice man. He did an excellent job. So thanks again for your part in making our visit to Uganda successful and special.

J. Partington, UK
This is to say thank you very much for arranging such a wonderful holiday for us. We have seen amazing things, met inspirational people, stayed in extraordinary places and really have had the adventure that we hoped for. We were especially impressed with Lutaaya Robert, our guide. He quickly became a member of our family (the children got upset when he had to stay at a different hotel to us), he is an excellent guide in the National Parks, able to find animals (2 leopards!!) and a very careful driver. We were very well looked after.
Once again, thank you very much for organizing such an excellent holiday. We will be recommending Great Lakes to our family and friends and we are already starting to save up for our next trip to Uganda.
J. Purle, UK
Thank you for organising our safari last week; we had a really wonderful trip. Robert, our driver, was a great travelling companion, a very helpful tour guide and we really appreciated his knowledge of local flora and fauna which added so much to our trip.
Firstly, we really enjoyed our safari through Great Lakes and appreciate your organisation of the trip. Murchison Falls really is a perfect safari location and all the family thoroughly enjoyed the richness and wonder of the wildlife. So, many thanks indeed.
We would like to thank you and Robert again. On the whole Great Lakes arranged things very well, Robert did a good job as our driver/guide and we would certainly recommend you to our friends.
Mr Touisi, Director Aviatours, Canada
The Fam Trip was a real success. The participants were all unanimous to highlight the impressive tourism potential of Uganda. So much so that we already have requests for a Fam Trip in Uganda only. Wishing us a successful cooperation!
