          8 Day Gorilla and Chimpanzee Experience in Uganda with Pamoja Safaris
          Choosing Pamoja Safaris to discover the pearl of Africa has been our best decision. As there are so many tour operators, it is always difficult to decide among them but, without any doubt, Pamoja Safaris are the best. In addition to being a local company, which helps the country's circular economy, Pamoja Safari also collaborates with communities and schools in the country that need support from the rest of the society. By choosing them you are also helping Ugandan communities while visiting the country and exploring its most exciting corners. In our particular case, we were unlucky that the airline lost our backpacks with absolutely everything inside. Even when everything seemed lost, Fred, our guide, knew how to make our trip come back to life. He was very attentive to us and caring, so we never lacked anything. The best part is that when the backpacks appeared, someone from the Pamoja Safari team went to Entebbe International Airport in person to collect our backpacks and traveled with them 300 kilometers so we could get them back without changing our itinerary at all. We are still grateful for this great gesture! About the trip, we remain speechless. Everything I write in this review falls short. Africa cannot be read, Africa must be lived. NATURE AND WILD FAUNA IN EVERY CORNER! Trekking with chimpanzees will leave you speechless but trekking with gorillas will steal your heart. One of the best experiences of our lives. We also must add, which for us was a highlight, the accommodations were incredible. Each one was even better than the last, which we didn't expect at all. A pleasant surprise. This private tour has changed our lives and we take Uganda and Pamoja Safari in our hearts. Shoutout to Fred, a lovely guide who made us feel safe during all the trip. THANKS AGAIN FRED! I hope we can return soon, we would repeat with Pamoja for sure.

          The best Safari guide in Africa!
          We have had over 40 different Safari guides over all our trips to Africa and Charles is the best. Charles has an ability to spot animals that is amazing. He set up a 27 day itinerary to Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. All the lodges were excellent with excellent food, service and accommodations. Spending time with Charles is enjoyable. He is knowledgeable about the animals and the parks. He partners with great companies in Kenya and Tanzania that ensure a delightful trip. He is easy to work with and set up a customized tour for us. The most impressive thing about Charles is his heart for the education of children. He uses the profits and tips to fund the education of children in his native village of Mubaku. He founded Mubaku School, which is bringing hope of a better future to an entire community. This was our third time with Pamoja Safari and it will not the last.

          If you are looking for an excellent and unique experience, choose Pamoja Safaris!
          After researching several different tour companies, I decided on Pamoja Safaris and am so happy that I made the right decision! I cannot say enough about how easy it was to work with Charles in planing a tailor made itinerary for the 12 days my friend and I spent exploring Uganda. Charles was the perfect guide. He is very personable as well as an excellent driver and problem solver. (When our luggage didn't arrive in Kigali as planned, he worked with the airlines and the airport in Kigali to locate and return it to us. The lodges were all wonderful, but when one of them assigned us to a room we did not like, he worked with the owners to give us one that exceeded our expectations.) Charles is extremely knowledgeable about his beloved country, its history, its people and its wildlife. Not only was he an absolute pleasure to be with, he was able to spot (from a distance!) animals that other tours missed. He also arranged for us to spend 4 hours with the gorillas of Bwindi instead of the usual 1 hour. This "habituation experience" was amazing and I highly recommend it. Every day was a new and unique experience. We tracked Golden Monkeys in Volcanoes National Park, Gorillas in Bwindi, Chimpanzees in Kibale. The game drives and cruises on the nNile were fantastic! Charles knew exactly were to take us to view lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, baboons, hippos various antelope and so much more. We also were able to track rare Rhinos in the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. Another unique advantage to traveling with Charles is that he took us to the Mubaku Community where he grew up to meet its people, visit its school and learn about the life of people in rural Uganda. This experience was very special and not available with other tour companies. The 12 days spent with Charles surpassed my expectations by far! I highly recommend choosing Pamoja Safaris!!

          12 Day Rwanda/Uganda trip of of a lifetime
          Our trip was actually 12 days Rwanda/Uganda Primates. Pamoja Safaris provided a perfect and unique in a lifetime experience. Our guide collaborated with us to devise a diverse and doable trip tying safari, cruises, road trips, National Parks and opportunities to become culturally enlightened by way of engaging with people in their communities. Getting close to animals in their habitats on foot, deep into the National Parks and on the waterfront was life changing. Seeing animals from a vehicle with suspension that was surreal with a driver who navigated it better than Parnelli Jones was impressive. Pamoja Safaris made all the arrangements including reservations for Gorilla Habituation, Chimpanzee trekking in Kibale National Park, game viewing, Murchison Falls and more as well as park entry fees and accommodations. The 12 day journey went smoothly. We felt confidant, comfortable and well cared for. Our guide Charles greeted us with a smile each morning at breakfast, very early and before a full day of wonder. His sense of humor, good cheer and passion for his country and community made the trip even more meaningful. Thank you Charles. Thank you Pamoja Safaris

          Fantastic experience with Pamoja Safaris Uganda!
          it doesn't take long to see why Uganda is called the "pearl of Africa" -- a beautiful and welcoming country! But, as an American it's not easy to get around. Charles Oyer and his partner, Sebby, managed the logistics of our travel beautifully. From mountain gorilla tracking to visiting a chimp group to game drives in the amazing national parks, Charles and Pamoja Safaris couldn't have been better: organized, knowledgable and always a pleasure to be with. Charles is a wonderful ambassador for his home country, and I highly recommend Pamoja Safaris Uganda if you plan to visit this pearl!

          Pamoja MountainGorilla Trek and Safari
          This was my fourth trip to Africa, and Uganda was my eight country visited. I can state without hesitation that the itinerary, activities, lodgings, food, and especially guides were second to none. Pamoja certainly knew their clients wishes when they devised the itinerary, and each location always delivered maximum sites and excitement. Fred, our guide and driver was probably the best I've had. His driving skills alone were amazing. In addition, the price point was also the best. We spent a great deal of time reading thru many, if not all Uganda tour companies literature and Pamoja certainly was the best with cost and value optimization. I, without hesitation strongly recommend choosing Pamoja for any African adventure you may be planning.

          Most Amazing Experience!
          This was the best trip that I've ever been on, and it's all thanks to Pamoja Safaris. Charles and Sebby made this the best trip it could be and ensured that all of our needs were met. All the accommodations were above and beyond my expectations. The food was great and the experiences were indescribable . If you are planning or thinking about visiting East Africa you should highly consider Pamoja Safaris. If I visit again it will most defiantly be with Pamoja Safaris.

          Phenomenal!!!!
          Charles and Sebby are the most wonderful guides. Not only do they provide once in a lifetime experiences, they also stress the importance of community and conservation. They are friendly, personable and knowledgeable. Through their expertise, we saw a variety of rare animals as well as connected with the people and culture throughout Rwanda and Uganda. Their passion to help others through tourism and the love of their country is inspiring. Pamoja Safaris is quite unique and definitely worth the trip.

          Gorilla, chimpanzee, and golden monkey trekking, rhino tracking, game drives, community involvement, amazing people
          Charles and Sebby were amazing. They made us feel like family. They answered all our questions and were very patient with us. They made us laugh and smile the whole trip. They are definitely they best around here and do the best job of accommodating. When I needed things that I did not have they instantly went out and got what I needed and made sure I was safe and always having a good time. They will definitely be forever friends and I am forever grateful for the experience they provided. I wish I was able to spend more time with them and I wish all people got to experience time with them! This trip was surreal thanks to them and I cannot thank them enough for helping us. Leaving I know that I have made friendships that will go past this trip with Charles and Sebby and I’m excited to see Pamoja continue to grow! Words cannot describe the experience I had with them and how much they have impacted me.

          Xavier University: Rwanda/Uganda Expedition
          Pamoja Safaris made our trip outstanding and memorable. Our guides, Charles and Sebbi were incredibly personable, caring, and humorous. Having our guides with us for the entire trip was life-saving. I put my full trust into both of them to not only keep us safe and get us to where we needed to go, but also to give us the most special experience possible. I fully believe they gave us that. We traveled with them all around Rwanda and Uganda and got to experience some of the most amazing up-close wildlife interactions I could only dream about! Much love for Pamoja and the guides behind the magic.

          Best tour guides ever!
          Best ever safari! The tour guides made my trip! Sebbi and Charles are super funny and I found myself staying up late at night and talking with them while sharing stories. We got within 5 feet of wild gorillas, chimps, golden monkeys, lions (from a car) and more! This trip was life changing and I can’t stress enough how much you need to book with Pamoja. Also the places you stay at have views of the rainforest, volcanos, lakes and more, the places are better than anywhere I have stayed in America.

          Congratulations to Pamoja and Fred for our Safari in Uganda.
          From day 1 on, my family and myself, we accompanied by Fred our driver for a 10 days trip in Uganda. We all had an awesome time, it was a fantastic human and geographic experience. During this discovery period we enjoyed all kind of wildlife. I strongly recommend Pamoja safaris , they are very professional. Loges , food, trip, organization, events, everything was perfectly prepared matching our expectations. A particular thanks to Fred who contributed making our journey to be safe, pleasant, magic and he never missed his duties. I wish to come back again enjoying another Safari with this team. congrats and take care very kind regards Guy

        Me and my wife went Gorilla Trekking and we booked with Pamoja because of the following reasons:

        1) They were very quick responding to emails. I think they do not sleep because we would get fast responses.
        2) They had excellent reviews
        3) They were listed on the official website of the Bwindi National Park

        At first I wasn't thrilled about sending a large amount of money to Africa as a deposit but I thought that since they were on the ofiicial website it had to be a legitimate company.

        Once you make the deposit don't expect him to send you the permit pass, I kept asking but didn't get them... however I was very glad we went with this company. Our guide Charles was fantastic! Very friendly since the very beginning and accommodating to any of our needs. He adapted to whatever we felt like doing and even changed our itinerary as per our request.

        The best part is that our hotel was in Nkuringo but the permits were for Rushaga (a 45 min drive) but the last day Charles managed to get our permits at Nkuringo, only 2 min drive. The trek was out of this world, and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

        If you go, make sure you ask for Charles, I 100% recommend him and hopefully will be back soon!

        We spent 4 days in Uganda and Kigali with Charles. He is a excellent guide and have a lot of knowledge about his country, animals and the culture of Uganda. The gorilla and golden monkey trekking was wonderful.

        Charles is also a person punctual. We changed our plan last minute and he didn’t not complain at all. If you go one day to Uganda contact pâmoja. Always better to travel with small agencies than the big ones. We will come back one day. Thank for make this trip very special!

        I picked pamoja safaris as I was the most convenient being able to be picked up Kigali Rwanda airport I was met with Charles my guide for a three day gorilla trekking which was mesmerising being able to see the mountain gorillas up close and personal I will never forget also I highly recommend hiring a porter as it very steep inclines the accommodation at lake Bunyonyi was an excellent choice on the final day we did the Uganda equator line and dropped me off at my hotel in Kampala Uganda

        If I were to come back to Africa I will definitely choose them again 🦍🇺🇬
