Great package, jammed packed with activity and a great way to explore the East. The driving felt very safe and comfortable which made the stunning views and scenery even more enjoyable. One thing I would make sure you do if using SASO is to double check the itinerary everyday and confirm it properly with someone before you leave. I had a few ‘mistakes’ on mine and exaggerated itinerary details which resulted in shorter activity times, slightly disappointing as this should be precise to avoid letdown. All the guides/ rangers you meet on the arranged activities are incredible, super knowledgeable and interested. The accommodation options were very reasonable, especially considering I chose the budget option. Overall very good experience with SASO, just double check they haven’t oversold on the itinerary!

Dear Zara Thanks so much for appreciating our services and we are really sorry about that error/mistake on your day 2 itinerary program that mentioned 4 hours of quad biking yet it was supposed to be 2 hours. All in all we so much appreciate your overall remark that your experience was " very good experiences" but it error wasn't intended to over sale as we explained to you.

Only minus was the guide who tried to cheat for some of the experiences. So look at your itinerary! He was also asking for extra money all the time which was enjoying m. But besides that I loved it!

Dear Jonas Thanks so much for appreciating our service. As its difficult now days to make the decision to travel amidst the covid virus situation we indeed thank you for choosing to travel with us I was informed that after the 6 days tour you booked,You requested the driver guide to take you for extra tours like Extra day for Rhino trekking, A visit to the National sports grounds in Kampala which request you would do officially through the person you booked the tour with and get proper guidance on what and how to do it. And since we had provided you with fulltime internet and we always answered your emails on time during the tour you should have informed us your idea of having extra activities during the tour. All those extra activities required extra fees for fuel, driver allowances, Rhino trek permit fees since they were not included in the original tour you booked and were on a completely different route and date after the original tour. However am happy that you both finally understood each other and agreed to pay for them. Thanks so much for the concern and for notifying us that you had an amazing experience with us. Stay safe and healthy.

What an amazing tour. The professional nature of the company was impressive but I must admit, Michael, my guide, made all the difference. He's so knowledgeable and professional but at the same time makes you feel he is also a friend. The luxury tour was all that and then some. Even during this covid time, Uganda proved to be much more serious about safety measures than most nations not doing so well with their control of the virus. I felt very safe. I loved the level of difficulty of both the chimpanzee trek as well as the gorilla trekking with the gorilla trekking actually being challenging. Both my trekking events were privatized so my experience may not be that of others that were not privatized. I also had the pleasure of interacting with the Batwa tribe of the Pygmy people. That was awesome. What a unique experience. Saso took care of everything concerning changes and requests. I have to also mention the level of luxury I experienced since that's what I requested which is also offered. I was thoroughly impressed and it didn't break the bank choosing that option. The food at the lodges was great and the level of service impeccable. One lodge even surprised me for my birthday in Bwindi. That was awesome. Thank you Saso for giving me a 50th birthday I will never forget.

Circumstances required that I cancel my tour and, even during a pandemic, Saso lived up to their word and gave me a refund. Organizations like this deserve business and when I can travel again, I will be using their services.

We found the van very comfortable for what was a very long 12 car journey each way from outside Kampala. Our driver was safe and friendly. The stops along the way were comfortable and well thought out. Our accommodation at Lake Mutanda was amazing, just a big shame we couldn't enjoy more time there. The trek experience was incredible. Well organised, professional and safe. We highly recommend hiring a local to carry your bag which is offered to you at the beginning of the morning. We ended up being carried over streams etc which was extremely kind of them. The time with the Gorillas was magical. We were so close to them. The staff helped in every way to ensure we had a great experience suggesting where to stand and assisting us with photos. It is difficult to explain how wonderful it was except to tell you that you must do it.

Hello Sharing We are really happy that we were able to give the best value for money and that you enjoyed your tour with us. We look forward to hosting you again as gorilla experiences are different every time you visit them. We also appreciate the time spent in Uganda in the communities which enabled many of our people to learn lots of life changing skill and created friends who continue to give you smiling moments whenever you think of Africa. Thanks a million.
