Was suppose to write a little earlier, but then the pandemic hit. Achieve and Jolie helped us form the very beginning to arrange for the trip and she found some really nice hotels on our trip that started in Uganda and finished in Rwanda. And the fact that the African weather showed its best side didn't make the trip worse. Our driver Haruna did everything in his power to make our journey amazing, and also gave us some insights in the life in Uganda during the sometimes long drives between the hotels. When the pandemic is over I would absolutley recommend you to contact Achieve Global Safaris and let them help you tailor your trip.

We were so pleased working with Jolie to plan our 10-day trip to Uganda. She was thorough, knowledgeable and very accommodating with all of our requests. She was most patient and courteous, always responding quickly to each email (with a 10-hour time zone difference.) Our trip included 2-days in Bwindi seeing the Mountain Gorillas, (A-mazing!) 1 day Golden Monkey trek, 1 day Chimpanzee trek, half day safari and half day boat safari, among other sights. All were exceptional and exceeded our expectations. We visited 4 national parks and in each location were thrilled with the mid-range lodges Jolie had booked for us. The accommodations were just lovely: large bright rooms, comfortable beds, welcoming staff, fresh meals. The rates were all reasonable since we booked through Achieve also. There are too many highlights to list, but our in-country Ugandan guide Arafat was key to such an amazing trip. Arafat made our time in Uganda as fantastic as it was, with his training & education about the region, the wildlife, the conservation efforts and the culture. He was the best guide we could ask for—extremely knowledgeable, kind, flexible, and pleasant to spend time with. He knew every one of the mountain roads by heart (which can be difficult to travel!) and was an excellent, safe driver. Because he knew all the routes and contacts of each area, he provided the best experience possible. He knows the park staff guides as well, so he made sure we'd have great treks -- all very well-run and organized. In most cases we saw more than we otherwise might have! His calm, warm and upbeat attitude made each day fun. We were grateful he was our guide and we feel lucky to have found Jolie and Achieve. We highly recommend this company!

Great experience. Driver Jimmy was on time and very accomodating. They were able to book my gorilla safari on short notice albeit it was low season. Jolie was very responsive and Jimmy was a great driver and guide during the 10 hours drive from Kampala to Bwindi and back.

This was a very special trip for my husband and I.We decided after much research to visit Uganda and were not disappointed.It was a leap of faith,but Achieve were meticulous with their responses and organisation.Jolie inspired us with confidence.The web site and reviews also helped us make informed decisions. Our holiday was the 10 day option,however we added 3 additional days to extend stays at specific lodges en route. It was a relief to meet Abudala at Entebbe airport and know we were in safe hands.He was an amazing driver who loves his job.He shared so much knowledge and had incredible eyesight when on safari.Abdul worked tirelessly organisingthe itinerary but also being flexible if opportunities arose. The scenery was stunning,the lodges beautiful.We learnt so much about Uganda and it's people.We experienced several community activies which were enlightening and enjoyable.It's also encouraging to see Achieve link with the locals as guides etc.The locations,types of safaris and proximity to the animals was a privilege and has created so many memories. Look at Uganda.Look at Achieve Global Safaris for that personal ,safe and unique safari adventure.You will not be disappointed.We're still reminising!Thank you !!

Spectacular tour to see the Mountain Gorillas. We are so glad we chose Achieve and our guide John was great. Be sure to request him when you book. We had a very short window but everything worked out great. We loved Ichumbo Gorilla Lodge. Our trek was difficult but worth it. The guides and rangers all professionals and great. Everything went perfectly and not only did we have an up close and personal experience with these magnificent creatures we also didn’t get rained on!! Highly recommend. BTW we are In Our sixties, pretty fit and used to hiking. And yet it was a definite challenge. A great accomplishment!
