          Trip of a lifetime - Uganda
          If you are planning a trip to Africa, we highly recommend Ben and his staff from Homestead Tours and Safaris. Our wonderful guides, Ben, Caesar, and Alex, all made this once in a lifetime trip memorable because they prioritized our needs and made sure that we were comfortable and safe at all times. All three guides were knowledgeable and graciously answered all of our questions (we had a lot – we are Americans!). Not only were the animals on safari amazing, but the accommodations and vehicles were extremely comfortable. Of course, we saw remarkable animals and were able to interact with awesome people, but the extra care our guides took to make sure we saw everything we expected was perfect. Ben and his staff were exceptional communicators and spent time each day (often multiple times per day) debriefing our group and making sure that we were always on the same page. Ben read the needs of our group remarkably well and could tell when our energy was low and knew when we needed to recharge and relax before the next day’s events. The food was delicious and plentiful, and they provided three meals per day (as well as making special accommodations for one member of our group who did not eat pork). Ben ensured that we literally never handled our luggage, as between our guides and the lodge staff, our bags were unloaded from the vehicles and placed in our rooms safely and with care. During our entire trip, it seemed that Ben and his staff went above and beyond to ensure that we had fun. For example, early in our 14-day trip, I celebrated my birthday. Ben went out of his way to make my day memorable with special accommodations and a birthday celebration from the lodge staff. Ben and his staff seemed genuinely committed to making sure our group had the best experience we could possibly have, and they truly seemed to care about each and every member of our group. Our trip was exceptional, beyond our highest expectations, thanks to Ben and his staff. Should we ever return to Uganda or surrounding countries, we would absolutely hire Ben and his staff to guide us again in the future. YouTube: Uganda - May 2022

          Tour of Uganda
          I highly recommend this tour company and our wonderful guide, Ben! My sister and I had the most incredible tour that Ben put together based on what we wanted to do and our budget. He managed to pack in everything we wanted and much much more and we had some lovely accommodation, all of which served fantastic food! I have done much travelling over the years but this goes down as one of the best trips I’ve ever done! Seeing the chimps and gorillas have to be two of my absolute highlights!! Our transport was extremely comfortable with plenty of space and Ben made sure each day that we saw the most hidden of creatures ... including a lion that has just made a kill! We cannot thank you enough, Ben, for such fantastic memories and can’t wait to return ... very soon!!

          A Perfect Way to Experience Uganda
          Ben Ejadu of Homestead Safaris is a gem. A background as a ranger gave him intimate knowledge of all the parks in Uganda (and beyond) and knowledge of the absolute best guides to connect you with; his passion as a guide shows through his careful planning and his willingness to meet the needs of his clients rather than getting his clients to follow his needs; and his love for Uganda is infectious. And I totally believe he knows nearly everyone in Uganda.... AND he’s a benefit to community members - he gives back a portion of his fees for projects like clean water so women and children don’t have to spend all day collecting water - and the girls can go to school. I know I’m not alone in my opinion because I booked him based on a well-traveled friend’s experience. Ben is able to work within your budget, I wanted midrange. (We’d done high-end Safari, loved it but felt very coddled and separated from reality.) We stayed at a former tea plantation where water was heated by logs, a community-benefiting hotel with views over the Rift Valley, a hotel on a lake with the most amazing bird life imaginable. (And Ben can identify them all.) And I think we were the only people who had a guide that made arrangements with hotels for post gorilla/chimpanzee trekking showers! We ate at the top hotel in Queen Victoria Park and at neighborhood joints. I ate goat for the first time and loved it. Sounds trite, but it all was very real. Yet clean and safe. I was happy to let Ben do the planning, but if you have requirements like no steps or a constant WiFi stream, just let him know. I know he’ll take good care of you.

          Amazing
          I went to Uganda with my sister in Feb this year. Ben organised a fantastic trip for us, 10 days in total. Ben managed to fit everything we wanted including the Gorillas and Chimpanzees which were amazing. Ben's years of experience make him a superb guide, he stayed with us for the whole tour, taking us out on the safari drives and we got to see more animals up close than I have ever seen on safari before. A magical place, cant wait to go again and when I do it will definitely be through Homestead tours and safari. Very reasonably priced, superb host, can't recommend them enough! Thanks Ben for a wonderful trip.

        I went with a different company but with Ben as guide and driver. I went on my own and had an exellent time, I felt really safe and well taken care of. Great accommodation and treatment everywhere we went. Ben is an experienced wildlife guide and has a great knowledge that he willingly shared, not just about the wildlife in Uganda but, also about traditions and culture. Ben took me and another woman around Uganda for a week in a van, we got to see lions, hippos, monkeys, buffalos, chimps, elephants among others, not to mention all the birds. The high light for me was the gorillas in Bwindi NP. I can highly recommend Ben as a tour guide.
