The 2 hour trip is a minimum I think. Quick training session on semiauto quads and you are off visiting the lake and seeing the villages and local. Good guide, who obviously had a lady in every village :-)

Our kids did the 30 minute trip, which worked out longer, I'm sure. Orientation and practice driving the quad bikes for the older kids went well and younger ones rode with the instructors and had a great time too. There were big smiles all round when they returned.

Went with a friend for the twilight ride. Our guide was friendly and it was a great experience to go through the villages around Jinja. Totally recommend it for anyone going.

I booked a 2 hour ride for my two sisters and myself via email a few days before arriving in Jinja. It cost $79 each and I am glad we had our own insurance as they don't cover you. We started at 10am, went through the safety brief, got our overalls, helmets, goggles and bandanas and had a practice run... More

We were also advised of prices , what was required , cost in various currency's and that there were major road works on the road from Kampala... More

We booked a one hour ride. It was very good. They were ready and waiting for us. The service was very good, the bikes were in good shape, and our guide, William was fun and good. We would do it again.

We did the 2 hour drive and the instructors were great at getting us up to speed and considerate of everyone's driving ability. Getting off the beaten track and seeing the Ugandan villages gave us a great insight into everyday live. You get to see all the local children run out to greet you and wave as you drive past.

I took a 2 h drive with the quad bike. It was indeed a nice experience, the quad was easy to navigate and the guide seemed to have good idea of my driving capacity. Driving through the villages brings you closer to people's everyday life and it's funny to wave to the children greeting you with ”jambo muzungu”. However, just... More

I took the 1 hour ride with my 5 year old son and guide William. I am in a wheelchair and they were kind and accommodating. The experience was extra special for me because an ATV ride is the only way I could navigate the muddy roads and rural villages. I also appreciated that it is something I can do... More

I think that your complaint is totally unjustified & that you have chosen to destroy our good reputation on TripAdvisor. You were on a trip with 15 other people. I have questioned the guides and have been told that; after completing your free practice / training session you were 35 minutes into the 1 hour safari when you drove over... More
