We did an 8-day trip with Mamaland Safaris in December 2019. The reason for choosing the company was because of the good reviews they already had. From the beginning, Anna and Edrisa were most helpful in planning the tour, and were always quick in responding to emails and really tried to accommodate all our interest and needs. We had Donna as our guide, and in all my travels, I haven’t met a guide as friendly, professional, and informed as him. He was a very good and safe driver, with a lot of experience. The car we had was always in good condition despite the tough terrain (which Donna referred to as a ‘Ugandan’ massage) that we had to sometimes drive through. We visited the chimps in Kibale, QENP’s Kazinga Channel and Ishasha sector, mountain gorillas in Mgahinga, crossed into Rwanda, to visit Volcanoes NP, fish on Lake Kivu, Nyungwe NP before returning to Kigali to end that part of the trip. At every location and even for the border crossing, Mamaland had made sure all the paper work was in order, and the reservations were made accurately, so we had no problem whatsoever. We stayed in a variety of accommodation, but all of them were clean, well situated, and with friendly staff. For example, Isunga Lodge just west of Kibale, where we stayed the after chimp-trekking was the best place we stayed in during our whole trip in East Africa- the views were spectacular and the food was amazing. Our only negative would be the fact that at some places where we stayed, the menus were always too Westernised, and with few options to try the local food. But when we told Donna about this, he made sure we were able to try the local food everywhere we went. His experience as a guide made sure that he was able to read the clients, understand what their interest and needs were and accommodate it within means. All in all, the trip was worth every penny…and we can’t wait to go back to Uganda to explore its culturally diverse north with Mamaland and Dona as our guide.

Mamalandsafaris did not let us down for a moment. Our 7 days on safari will stay in our memory for a long time. Contact with the agency from the moment of booking until the end perfect. Everything is clear and legible. Our guide Nathan will rise to the challenge. He was very helpful and competent. We saw a lot of animals, and above all gorillas in Bwindi NP, lions, leopard, chimpanzees and many more. Our lodge was very clean and comfortable. We recommend Mamaland with a clear conscience. If we return to Africa it's only from Mamaland.

Me and my 2year old son had the luck to have Edrisa as our guide during our 3day trip to Murchison falls. He was polite, good with my son, open for suggestions, made sure we had everything we needed and was flexible with the itinarery. Everything from the first contact with the company until the end was great and I recommend anyone to do a trip with them. You wont be disapointed🙂🙂🙂
