      EXCELLENT FABULOUS HOLIDAY WITH NGONI
      NGONI SAFARI WERE EXCELLENT, SEDRICK ORGANISED OUR TRIP TO OUR REQUIRED DESTINATION AND ABOVE, WITH EXCELLENT DRIVER DAVID. DAVID WAS VERY HELPFUL, NOTHING WAS ANY TROUBLE, EVEN TAKING EXCELLENT CARE OF MY INJURED WIFE TO THE EXTENT THAT WE COULD BE DROPPED OF AT THE NEAREST PLACE FOR WALKING AND NEAREST ROOMS AT THE HOTEL. 5 STAR FOR DAVID. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY TO ANYONE WHO WISH TO DO SAFARI IN EAST AFRICA. CHANDRAKANT PATEL

      10-days highlight of Uganda wildlife and its nature
      We enjoyed the 10 day tour around Uganda, observing by ourselves why it is considered the pearl of Africa. We also learnt so much about Uganda through our tour guide Steven. His knowledge and experiences shared provided us with a higher level of understanding of the country. Besides, throughout the trip he always put his maximum effort towards us and for us to have an amazing trip. We will miss you Senator Schumacher. Eventhough we received limited information from Ngoni before our arrival, we found that everything was organised and set. We want to thank Ngoni Safaris for allowing us to discover this amazing and unforgetable country.

      Highly recommended!
      Great choice for visiting Murchison falls and Ziwa rhino and managing gorilla permits. Very good and clear communication with Sedrick from reservation team. Our guide Elly took good care of us from the beginning and made sure we were enjoying the trip. He gave us good contacts on other guides and advises for our next days in Uganda. We had a great time with Ngoni.

      More than Satisfied!
      My experience with Ngoni Safaris was fantastic. Sedrick helped me create a very custom itinerary which included a visit to the Chimps, my Ugandan family who lived a distance from any tourist location and Kenya. He made a dream come true! We were met at the airport by Wellen who guided and drove us the entire time we were in Uganda. He was professional, punctual, knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to be with. He was truly an extra value that made our experience very fulfilling. Our experience in Kenya followed suit. Dickson our guide/driver was amazing. His driving skills were put to the test with very muddy roads conditions. Also, he was very professional, punctual, knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend Ngoni Safaris. They are honest and trustworthy company. Making arrangements half way across the world with people you don’t know can be a risk but working with Ngoni Safaris made me secure and confident that I was in great hands!

      Uganda's smile 14 days
      You only needed to see the first bright smile of Eddy, " the Elephant son" at the Entebbe airport and you felt, that Uganda wishes you fully welcome. Eddy, my driver-guide for the next two weeks was standing there in the early morning hours, held my name correctly written- which surely doesn’t happen too often- in the nameplate. And from that very moment on I knew, that I shall have a great journey with NGONI safaris in Uganda. Eddy took me straight to sleep in the comfortable Cassia Lodge, helped me to buy a sim card in the afternoon and the safari proper was to start after a good sleep in the very next morning. And what a great tour I had. Fell in love with the smiling Uganda, with the stunning scenery, with the wildlife all around. Of course the most impressive memory of this “once in the lifetime journey” was the encounter with the enchanting gorillas. The whole trek in the jungle was already wonderful, but staring at these beautiful creatures in the wild was the unforgettable moment, that I had always dreamed of: so fascinating, so intense. It surely was worth every dollar invested. And even after a week of my arrival back home I’m still dreaming of these black furballs in the midst of the green jungle. Seeing them so close, that I was almost able to touch them, was an amazing experience. The hike uphill was not at all so hard as I feared, despite of the fact, that it was raining cats and dogs in the previous evening and night. Yes, the path was partly muddy and very slippery, but surely tolerable. Luckily I had hired a porter to carry my backpack filled with 2,5 liters water, spare jumper, camera lens and a lunchbox. That made my steps up and down so much lighter during this 5,5 hours’ walk in total. My porter, a young and strong lady was always ready to offer her hand for help in the trickier bits of this jungle adventure. Before getting to the gorillasI had praised my safari already daily. I loved the rhinos, loved my Uganda baptism by the powerful waters of Murchison falls, and I loved every second of the excitement of chasing the lions and leopards, hippos and giraffes in the wild. Another mega-highlight was naturally the other jungle trek to see the chimpanzees, in the Kibale national park. What a powerful and great experience it was as well. I never knew, how cute they can be in their real habitat and how near I was able to get to stare at them- just a couple of meters away. And surely I loved my ultra-relaxing and comfortable lodges. I had chosen a midrange level safari, but felt very often being treated as a first class customer. The meals were generally great, occasionally brilliant. Especially the fine dining-level reached at the Zigarama and Arcadia-lodges was just incredible. Not to talk about the comfort of zipping the morning coffee at my own balcony in the wonderful Turaco Treetops lodge. It will never be forgotten, nor the meditative moments spent in the swimming pool in the Buffalo Safari lodge. On top of this great safari I got also a wonderful new friend, a Spanish lady, Begonia. She was also travelling solo with the Ngoni safaris at the same time as I. We had our own cars and drivers and rooms, but shared the same itinerary and the lodges. Begonia is such a brilliant and inspiring travelmate, that I was more than happy to enjoy my meals and drinks with her daily. Also her driver and interpreter, the two D’s (Dennis and David) were wonderful fellows, kind, fun and so helpful. I surely owe warm thanks of my great safari to Eddy, to my talented, intelligent, entertaining and caring guide. He loves Uganda and he wants to share that love with his customer, too. During the long drives we were sometimes listening our favourite songs from Eddy’s smart phone. One song uniting us deeply was Tina Turner’s “Simply the best”. Just like you, Eddy: simply the best! I give five stars of my safari to Ngoni safaris, BUT there is a slight minus attached to these stars as well. That minus goes to mr Sedrick, to the boss. His customer handling and communication skills prior to my journey were pretty hopeless. I had to contact him far too often via what’s app, phoning and messaging just to confirm, that my payments have arrived and my tour is due to come true as written in the itinerary. Finally, but only two days before flying to Uganda I got all the necessary information I had been longing for, including the name of my guide. Had I got that information at least a week earlier, it had saved me a lot of unnecessary worrying and stress. I even started to think, that Ngoni safaris is not at all a true company and all my thousands of dollars were sent to a hacker firm. So mr Sedrick, please, send just a simple “welcome to Uganda letter” to your customers EARLY enough, and make your clients start enjoying one of their greatest ever journeys already prior to getting to Uganda. If you are too busy to do it, please, delegate! And tips for the fellow travellers: make sure that your drinking water supply is secured - as written in the itinerary - all the time: not only during the transfers and in the meals, but also in the lodges. With all those thousands of dollars paid for the tour, the price must cover also all the drinking water consumed. Remember also to carry only newer US dollar notes with you. I was able to change only the notes from the year 2009 onwards, none before that.

      Fantastic experience!
      Our safari with David was fantastic! Highly recommend. Our driver, David, made our experience exceptional. He always made sure we were happy with how everything was going throughout the trip (and it was 14 days)! We mentioned in passing to him that we were celebrating our 30th anniversary, and a few days later the lodge we were staying at had prepared a special event for us and done up our room beautifully! We were very touched by his thoughtfulness and care. As for the safari itself, all the animal encounters were great, and we saw everything (on multiple occasions) that we had hoped to! All in all, truly an exceptional experience that we highly recommend!

      A once in a lifetime journey ..
      Our 14 day trip to Rwanda and Uganda was an absolutely beautiful once in a lifetime experience . A perfectly organised holiday package that included almost a bit of everything. The national park safaris , the wild animal encounters, the gorilla and chimp trekkings ,, all activities were very professionally organised making the experience highly enjoyable!! Our trip guide that met us upon arrival and accompanied us throughout our journey was apart from a great and extremely pleasant person , a very professional and highly experienced guide who was making sure at all times that everything was exactly as it should be and at the same time making us feel comfortable and safe …. Hoping to be able to revisit at some point and a big thank you to Ngoni Safaris and crew for making those 14 days a truly memorable experience ..

      Trip of a lifetime!!!
      What an unforgettable trip! I couldn't have wished for a better guide than Wellen! I highly recommend asking for him as a guide when you visit Uganda. I was a little nervous before arriving in Uganda because I was travelling solo and I had some delayed communication from Sedrick initially, but that was resolved then once I landed and it was confirmed that my guide was at the airport waiting for me. From the very start of the trip to the very end, Wellen was extremely caring, he had tremendous amount of knowledge about Uganda and the animals. He knew the area so well and where all the best areas were. Anything that I wished to see or do, he was able to make those happen. I had said one of the days that I wanted to have more local food and learn how the local food was made, and he arranged that and it so much fun. Visiting all the parks were incredible. We started our game drives early morning, and within the morning on day 1, I had already seen the Big 5 ! Wellen always knew where to look for the animals, facts about them and safety. All of the lodging provided during the trip was great! especially Buffalo Lodge and Arcadia. Wifi was available at all the lodges, but I recommend getting a data sim( Airtel) as some lodges had wifi only in their lobby's. I had also asked for accommodation to be arranged both one day before the start of my trip and one day after. Cassia Lodge in Kampala was excellent, but the last day I was in 7seasons near the airport which was terrible so I recommend choosing another hotel if that one is offered. Sedrick was very understanding when I had told him this, and was quick to respond which was great. Otherwise, every lodge was very clean, had great bathrooms, beds and great food and service from the staff! The Gorilla trekking and Chimp trekking was AMAZING and a memory I will forever cherish. If you are solo, then do not worry, because during those trek's you are placed in groups with other tourists and rangers come with you and adjust to everyone's various fitness abilities during the trek. They make sure that everyone gets a decent amount of time with the animals to observe them, take photos and just take in the amazing moment. Also do not forget face masks as that is required during both of those treks for the health safety of the animals. During the Gorilla trek, they also provided me a walking stick and gloves to borrow ( the trek is steep at times and loads of thorn bushes once you are in the jungle). I have visited many countries before for wildlife and hiking, and I have to say that Uganda has been my favourite. The country is filled with endless natural beauty, and is luscious in wildlife everywhere, but mainly what stood out to the me the most were the people. The people in Uganda are the most welcoming, kind and friendly people I have ever met! I will be posting a much more detailed experience of this amazing trip on my blog nomadicnewton.com in a few weeks time, so if you would like more details on how everything went from the point of view a solo traveller then feel free to check that out very soon. Thank you Ngoni for the epic trip, and I will 100% be back soon! Thank you Wellen and Sedrick! This trip was filled with only endless happy memories that I will forever cherish.

      Best trip ever
      We had a serious blast on this safari! I'm so so happy with the experience Ngoni Safaris created for us and I couldnt be happier that we chose Uganda for this trip-- such a beautiful country. We ran into other Ngoni groups on our adventure and everyone else seemed to be having a blast as well. All the guides, treks, game drives and hotels were fabulous! So many amazing memories were made!!

      Great Uganda & Rwanda trip with Ngoni Safaris
      We are 2 couples and we did a great 11-day safari in Uganda & Rwanda - both countries are amazingly beautiful and are a real gem for any traveller! Ngoni Safaris organized it very well and the price was competitive too. Our guide/driver Darius was 10/10 - professional, knowledgeble and a very nice person, we enjoyed every single day we spent with him. Communication with Cedrick from the main office was also very good, he was very flexible with all the requested changes. We strongly recommend Ngoni Safaris!

Would recommend Ngoni and Allan!

      Most knowledge guide and fantastic experience
      Katto has been the best guide to explore Uganda! We booked with him our gorilla safari, he picked us up from Bunyonyi and drove us all the way to the gorillas . 🦍 He has an impressive knowledge on every topic in Uganda and even neighbouring countries. He made us a very rich briefing on the countries geography and culture and was always there to answer our questions and to give us some interesting facts. 🌎Also he is a very kind and sunny person, with him only good vibes. We also had the pleasure to meet his son who was very kind and we could exchange some views on lifestyle and music. We thank your company for warmly introducing us to Uganda 🙏

      Gorilla tracking top experience
      The tour was exceptional. We started our trip in Kabale to reach the impenetrable forest. Katto our guide was very knowledgeable, we had so many questions and he could answered them brilliantly (in a developed way). For the gorilla tracking, it was impeccable, we had a 2 hours trek before seeing a family of 10 gorillas. Every thing was great. I really appreciated the company of Katto.

    After completing a whole day trip of mountain gorilla trek and we were thinking for doing another trek in a different forest, looking just for golden monkeys. On that particular day we were 3 people, me, my wife and my mom and our guide Nelson from Ngoni Safaris Uganda. The golden monkeys are endangered and can be hardly found in this forest. Looking after some few hours we got a chance to see them. The troupe we got a chance to saw had approximately 50 members and they were so much fun to watch. A very different experience from the mountain gorillas but a definite highlight I suggest not missing!

    I booked for a 4-day gorilla and golden monkey tour. From the beginning, Sedrick always answered my questions very promptly and organised my tour in a good manner.
    From the start of my tour Nelson was there ready waiting for me. I opted this because of low budget accommodation but this exceeded my expectations. The gorilla trek was amazing, an experience i never forget, the golden monkeys was really good too. We also went on a primate swamp and on a community walk it was good, everyone was so nice at there, everything about my trip was perfect and a big thank this company. I was a solo traveller, not even once was I made uncomfortable, Nelson made my holiday so enjoyable also was was my driver, always was there to show me where to go what to do, has very knowledge about the animals, birds and the country. We stopped off for a break this was nice to see, had shops here for souvenirs, I learned a lot from him while we travelled around, I would definitely use this company again and Uganda is a beautiful country with friendly people can’t wait to go back.
