I had an incredible experience with the game drives and Kazinga channel boat tour. I saw lions, elephants, hippos and more!

Martin was an amazing guide. He has been in the tourism field for more than 20 years and him and his team are very experienced. He helped customize two tours in Uganda for our group 1) gorilla trekking and 2) safari. With Martin and luck on our side, we were able to see many gorillas, lions, buffalo, elephants, hippos, leopard, various birds and natural foliage. He made extra stops to point out interesting Ugandan sites as well. Thank you Martin and Chigo tours!

Chigo Tours Africa, whom we met by chance by searching on Google, turned out to be excellent organizers of an unforgettable 16-day trip through Uganda. The proposed itinerary was simply magnificent, its services and attention were impeccable and the guide assigned to us was a true professional and a great expert on Ugandan wildlife. Accommodations, transfers and additional procedures were also resolved as planned. In addition, some problems not related to the trip itself were resolved by Martin efficiently and quickly. What more could you ask for? I will recommend this agency to anyone who wants to know Uganda thoroughly.

Be conservative with tips - while we were couched on suggested rates in US dollars - it can get inflated - can end up tipping more than what you eat and drink

I cannot say enough good things about my time using Chigo tours. I traveled to Uganda with a group of 8 for a program through our medical school.
Our goal was to visit healthcare clinics to learn about rural medicine. Our guides were Martin and Obed and they were incredible!

They made sure we were safe, helped coordinated visits to locations we wanted to see and were so knowledgeable about all the animals and birds along the way.

Martin and Obed were both involved in Gorilla trekking in the past and managed to help us get tickets so we were able to experience seeing the Silverback gorillas.

It was an incredible adventure and I cannot wait to go back. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to visit Uganda!

Gorillas in the Mist! What more canine say! I took the 3 Day Gorilla Trekking trip this past weekend, 11 - 13 November 2022. My Guide, Derek was great! The first day was a travel day, the drive from Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park took about 8-9 hours. Derek stoped along the way showing me tea field, pineapple fields, onion fields, ginger fields and Anaole cows and Gray Crown Crans! A stop at a meat vendor selling beef and lever on a stick turned out to be a wonderful surprise. Th 2nd day was Gorilla Trekking. Great one hour visit with a family group of 12 Gorillas! Trekking is not for the very young and old! The Trekking is very strenuous, Lots of up and down very steep Mountains! The 3r day was the trip back to Kimpala and a stop at the equator! A wonderful trip, once in a lifetime trip!

This tour was excellent- our guide Martin was incredibly personable and knowledgeable about the wildlife, making it even more enjoyable than if we did this alone. The lodging and meals provided were also some of the best that I've had in Uganda so far, and to do as much as we did in 2.5 days was a feat. No complaints!

Our safari with Chigo Tours and Martin was excellent. Martin is a very knowledgeable guide. He made sure our group left on time, structured the safari drives for maximum animal viewing, followed animal patterns to help predicate where specific animals could be located, and made sure we had an enjoyable once in a lifetime experience. The lodging and meals that were planned were excellent. I will definitely be coming back and using Chigo Tours and Martin for another amazing safari experience.
