They were great and accommodated our tight schedule. They worked with us to make sure we had enough time to see what we wanted to see! We only had a couple hours between flights and they brought us to a shoebill in the swamp! We even saw it eat a fish!

Spent approximately 3 weeks travelling with Shoebill Safaris. They delivered all we asked for and more. Saw over 520 species of birds as well as mountain gorillas and chimps. Alfred is among the best bird guides we have ever hired.

Shoebill were amazing. We were taking 31 students (and 4 staff) from the UK to Uganda. After spending time in Kibale first, Shoebill took us on a 3 day trip to Queen Elizabeth National Park. An advance catering team had delicious food ready for us when we arrived at Mweya. Drivers were excellent, patient and had good wildlife spotting skills. Would definitely recommend!

We combined a Birding and Gorilla Trek adventure in Uganda with Shoebill Safaris for 12 days this past August and September. We saw fabulous birds, including the Shoebill Stork, and gorillas as well. Our guide, Richard, was amazing and very knowledgeable about his country and the wildlife. He ensured that we had many opportunities for birding and even brought along an expert in forest birding, Nicholas, for part of our tour. We recommend Shoebill Safaris and the only change I would have made, if possible, would be to spend more time in Uganda.

We had a three day safari with Shoebill Safaris up to Murchison Falls and it was really excellent. It was very well managed at the time of booking with very helpful recommendations and quick responses. Our guide was Ben who was fantastic. He was very friendly, informative and attentive. He made sure we had every opportunity to see the animals we could and we saw leopard, lion, elephant etc. Really great trip. Thank you Shoebill.
