Our adventure with Uganda began with the prior arrangement of a detailed travel plan with Lucky. We took advantage of his knowledge and instructions, thanks to which, in almost 3 weeks, we saw the most interesting places of the western part and experienced close contact with the wild nature of UGANDA. Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls National Park, Nkuruba Lake - bird watching during the day and at night, trekking in the Rwenzori Mountains, watching hippos and elephants from a boat on Edward Lake, safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park, staying on 2 islands - on Lake Mutanda and Lake Bunyonyi combined with bird watching and meetings with the inhabitants of nearby islands, trekking with chimpanzees, Kampala. The main reason for our coming to Uganda was gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which turned out to be the most touching experience of this trip. We accompanied one family of gorillas for an hour, literally at our fingertips! During the whole trip, Lucky took care of the comfort of driving and accommodation; he was extremely attentive to our needs. He told many interesting facts and suggested what else we could see to diversify the trip, e.g. a visit to a tea and cotton plantation. He reacted quickly and calmly to unexpected and uncomfortable situations, finding the best solutions for us. He took care of our safety, talking about local customs and the behaviour of the inhabitants. And all this with care, respect, and a sense of humour. We got more than we expected. We were lucky to choose Lucky as our guide and travel companion in Uganda :)

Amazing memories!
Mr. Lucky is very professional at what he does. We waited for our journey from the beginning of Covid and it finally succeeded. Everything was planned as agreed with Mr. Lucky before our arrival. Thanks a lot for the professional approach of Lakeside Tours and we would love to recommend it to anyone who is planning to visit Uganda or Rwanda

Bonarde was a fantastic tour guide. Very friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and cares a lot about his community. I had nothing short of an amazing trip with him and would recommend him for anyone thinking of traveling across Uganda. He was especially helpful when unexpected issues arose, using his contacts to help sort me out and point me in the right direction. Look no further, Bonarde is your guy!!

Lucky has taken me on two great tips through Uganda so far. He is not only a great host but also a very interesting person and great friend. Since I booked a private tour (hiking in Mt Elgon, Sipi Falls, and adventuring in Jinja) he very gallantly accompanied me on all trips, never mind that he had to ruin his fancy shoes doing so ;P Very accommodating to my wishes, we had both matoke and beer in Mbale, and fancy pizza and iced tea in Jinja.

I had the pleasure of going on a gorilla and Queen Elizabeth tour with lucky and it was everything I could’ve asked for! He was so kind and helpful the whole way through, with lots of knowledge about the areas we were going through. He was also very helpful with extra general and tour information that I was asking about for the rest of uganda. I highly recommend lakeside tours for any and all of your uganda trip plans!

Lucky took me on a last-minute private tour to Murchison Falls and made sure everything was perfectly taken care of. We saw ALL the animals, and had many funny and interesting conversations about life in both our countries. Do let him haggle for you when you're buying souvenirs or pineapples!

Bernard the driver and guide was amazing. He was polite and patient with us and had a great sense of humor. The hotels we stayed at were budget hotels but still very charming and clean. Most importantly we got to see the gorillas which was amazing! Cost wise also this was very reasonable compared to what some of the other tour companies are charging. After the gorillas we went to another lovely game park and stayed at the fabulous Leopard Rest Camp. Highly recommend that as well!

Dear Anant S. Thank you so much for your kind words and review. It was an absolute pleasure to have not only met you but also to have made your trip so enjoyable. It would be my pleasure to host you again should you ever visit Uganda in the future. Best regards, Bonarde.

We had a very nice trip with Bonnie at a very good price. The kids loved to be on the roof while going around searching for animals. We were last minute so there was a problem with the bandas but we were all right. I liked the fact that Bonnie was caring, he stopped whenever we needed to take pictures or to stretch our legs. Nice trip, I would travel again with this company.
