In May 2021 i booked a trip to Uganda with this company, and it was fantastic. So this year i contacted them again to see if it was possible to book a trip to Kenya. Thankfully Johatan was more then happy to help. Within a few hours he had a day to day itinerary done for the group ( 9 people) with a very good price.
On our arrival, we were meet at the airport by Johantan and our good friend and guide from Uganda Jonan. They took us to our hotel for the night.

Our trip was then divided into two parts. A safari stage and a beach stage. We spent 3 nights in the Masai Mara and 1 night at Lake Nakuru before we flew from Nairobi to Mombasa to relax on the beach before we flew home.
On safari we managed to see all the BIG 5. Lion, Buffalo, Elephant, Leopard, and many Rhinos. We also had the opportunity to visit a Masai village during the safari. We stayed with the Sarova Hotel chain throughout our trip which was fantastic.

We then said goodbye to Jonan as we set off to Mombasa. Johatan had everything arranged there for us. We were collected at the airport on arrival and brought to our hotel which was on the beach front. Johatan checked in daily with us to make sure everything was okay. A few days on the beach was the perfect way to end our trip.

We had a great 10 day trip with Adventure in the Wild that included trekking for chimpanzees, gorillas, and golden monkeys, + Queen Elizabeth National Park and Bunyonyi. I started planning for our trip by contacting a number of tour operators with the list of quotes and locations we wanted to visit, and Adventure in the Wild had the best combination of price + customer service. Jonathan was very responsive and flexible, and super patient with all my questions and requests. We even ended up having to push our trip back by four months and he rescheduled and reconfirmed everything without any issue or additional charge.

Jonan, our guide, was very kind, adaptable, and knowledgeable. We made several last-minute changes (for example, deciding less than an hour before that we wanted to hike from Buhoma to Nkuringo instead of driving around Bwindi) and he made it happen without batting an eye. We had a fantastic time and would absolutely use Adventure in the Wild again - highly recommended!

We went on a 5 days/ 4 nights safari to Ziwa, Murchison falls and also included Chimpanzee tracking in Budongo forest (to us, a mind blowing experience).
The company was very quick in organising the safari and super efficient to meet all our needs even though we were pretty last minute.
You have to pay in advance which may seem sketchy, but you can truly trust Adventures in the Wild.
Our guide Kenneth was the best! Very open, flexible and knowledgeable about all the animals, trees but also about Ugandan culture and society in general.

I would definitely recommend this company for a comfortable, exciting safari in Uganda. The 4x4 car was perfect, the guide was a gem, the choice of mid-range hotels, the meals… all was very professional and at an unbeatable price.

Thank you⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I would highly recommend and encourage people to go on a safari with our brilliant guide Jonan and this safari company. From the minute we landed at the airport till when we left we had a fantastic experience of seeing all these animals in their natural habitat. We wouldn’t of been able to do it though without Jonan’s eagle eyes for spotting the wildlife as he skilfully navigated the roads around Uganda. Our group of 4 had such a great experience seeing, prides of lions, herds of elephants, chimpanzees and gorillas to name a few, all while having fun relaxing evenings playing cards with our group and Jonan in the picturesque lodges.

Loved it My guide Jerome was very knowledge about the park and the animals and made sure I had a great experience, including sightings of the 'big 5' and fresh pineapple to snack along during the game drive. I did the mid-range option and definitely recommend it if you're doing the rhino sanctuary - between the monkeys playing behind my room and the bushbuck snacking on the trees in the front it was like another mini-safari. Of the different companies I contacted Adventure in the Wild also gave me the best price for what was included.

We've just completed a 7 day tour around Uganda with Adventures in the wild safari. Jonathon was very efficient and professional to deal with.
Our guide Jonan, was excellent and attended to our every need! He always checked in on us and had a vast knowledge of animals, birds and the local ways. He informed us of traditions and way of life as we passed through villages.

Jonan organised all our trips with guides etc. to perfection and with great professionalism. We had some different medical and dietary needs in our group and he always took these into consideration. I would highly recommend Jonan as a tour guide - thank you Jonan for making our trip so amazing.

Accommodation and food was fantastic for the mid - range package. We would have loved to have spent longer in some places, particularly Rushaga lodge and Bunyonyi lake... It felt like a retreat into nature!
All accommodation staff were very helpful and attentive. We felt very safe and well looked after everywhere we went.

Thank you for a very memorable trip.

We did an 8 days safari in Uganda including Rhino trekking, Game Drives in Murchinson Falls and Queen Elisabeth, Chimpanzee trekking, Gorilla trekking and a lovely stay in Lake Bunyonyi. It was an absolutely amazing experience and we especially enjoyed the gorilla and chimpanzee trekking and the boat trip at Queen Elisabeth, where we saw crocodiles, elephants, hippos and giraffes at the riverbanks.
The accommodation in the lodges along the way was great - we can highly recommend Isunga Lodge at Kibale Forest and Elephant Hab Lodge at Queen Elisabeth. Both have amazing views of the area, tasty food/drinks and friendly service.
Our guide Jonan was an excellent driver, making us feel safe and comfortable all the way through.
We had some communication problems in the beginning of the tour since our guide was very late for the pick up and we didn’t get any information from the company until reaching out ourselves. This was not the best beginning of our tour however Jonan did all he could to make up for the delay and everything went perfectly hereafter.
We can highly recommend doing a tour with this company and with Jonan :)

After receiving a recommendation from a friend I decided to travel with Adventure in the Wild. 50% is required up front which is daunting, but necessary to secure park permits. Knowing friends had done this already put my mind at ease.

I organised my trip with Jonathan who was knowledgeable, accommodating and very responsive. Our flights changed many times and he provided options to help us with a smooth arrival and departure. On the last day we had a late flight and he ensured we had a place to chill and freshen up before our flight .

During the trip we had Jonan as our guide. What a fantastic human. Genuinely lovely person who only wanted to ensure we had the best time. We had 6 days and he managed to squeeze in chimps, Safari drive and gorillas. At almost every location Jonan has friends in high places and ensures his clients get the best treatment. Even on the last day we had a long drive to the airport and got stuck by a fallen tree following a storm the night before. Within 10 minutes Jonan had organised locals to cut the tree down and we were on our way 20 minutes later.

Stayed in mid range accommodation, but by all accounts it was high end and very comfortable with all the facilities you could possibly need. The food was fantastic at every stop also.

Having visited in excess of 50 countries, I can honestly say this was one of the best tour operators I have ever used. Definitely book with this company and request Jonan as your guide.

Absolutely incredible experience! I can’t say enough good things about this company and more specifically our guide Osbert. Our Safari was to see the gorillas and chimpanzees in Uganda. Osbert ensured we did that and more. From day one, the company was very helpful with booking and ensuring to tailor the experience specifically to what we wanted to see. Once we arrived in Rwanda and met Osbert he truly ensured that we had a great experience. He made sure we were on time to all activities. We wanted to really experience Ugandan food and culture so he also made sure we got to try plenty of the local food. He was even able to fit in a boat Safari in Queen Elizabeth NP between our Gorilla and Chimp experiences. Furthermore, he filled in the drives with lots of history about the people and culture of Uganda. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Honestly, we were in Africa for a month and did other safaris in Tanzania and Kenya and this one was by far the best. Don’t hesitate to book your safari with Adventure in the Wild. Ask for Osbert.
