Uganda is awesome! My husband and I have been in about 16 different countries within Africa, have been on many types of safaris and we have to say, Uganda kind of has it all. Their bragging rights are primates, but they have all the other usual suspects as well. One day we saw 3 leopards in a short time. Brian put together a couple things we wouldn't have thought of, the rhino sanctuary where we walked out with rangers to find them and a 3 hour cruise on the Nile River, which in itself was an animal safari! The density of wildlife in Murchison Falls is incredible. We traveled with our friend, a US travel agent, and she worked with Brian and GoExplore to put together a private safari for the 3 of us with a Landcruiser and a great driver, Godwin. We thoroughly enjoyed Godwin's company and ALWAYS felt safe with him behind the wheel. I believe GoExplore can put together any kind of safari you request, any lodges (from budget to glamping) and they even can arrange safaris in neighboring countries. We traveled "mid-budget" and enjoyed all the lodges, food and staff everywhere we went. Having done self-drive and big budget group tours over 40 years of travel to Africa, our recommendation is do this type of safari. It's a MUCH better price point, you have flexibility and the money stays in the hands of locals. You will do all the same things as the big spendy tour groups. And a really great reason for Uganda are the gorillas, chimps (watch Chimp Empire, it's filmed there) and the Golden Monkeys. My husband and I are in our 70's and had no problems hiking to see any of these animals. We were in Uganda during rainy season which is actually a good time to go - fewer tourists and apparently the gorillas don't go as high into the mountains to forage; we found them right away and in the whole week it rained twice. Our driver, Godwin, then drove us into Rwanda where we toured the Ellen DeGeneres/Diane Fossey Gorilla research station (don't miss it, and thanks Ellen!) Be sure to invite your guide to join you as your guest, it's otherwise not part of their travel expenditure. Godwin then dropped us in Kigali, Rwanda. A more somber highlight there, but not to be missed, is the Genocide Museum. We had no regrets about our Uganda travel and would go again and have already recommended travel there to other friends. GoExplore truly delivered for us.

Go Explore gave us the greatest experience we have had in Uganda.
Perfect in guiding us around and very flexible! We managed to even see the gorillas, though it was not initally planned.

A wonderful 4 day safari to Murchison Falls.
GoExplore took care of all the arrangements from collecting me at my hotel in Entebbe, to dropping me off at the airport. Moses, the guide and driver, was very knowledgeable and knew all of the top spots in Murchison where the animals were hiding out. We saw pretty much everything you could want from leopards to eagles and even chimpanzees. Murchison really is a stunning place to visit and somewhere I look forward to visiting again.

I would highly recommend GoExpore for your next trip in Uganda, they provide top notch service and really try and make the most out of every second of your trip so you don't miss anything. Brian and his team are doing a great job.

We loved the guides provided - each of the 3 were so personable and knowledgeable. Provided attention to what we wanted and delivered on all aspects, from hotels, air, and the gorilla trek. From my first email, there (Brian) communication was outstanding.

We had an amazing safari in Uganda. The main purpose of our trip was Chimp and Gorilla tracking but we also spent considerable amount of time on game drives across many national parks of Uganda. Our guide Brian and Mozes were very nice and took care of all our needs and made our trip memorable. The properties that we stayed at were excellent with great views and wildlife.

This is the second time I have traveled with my family with GoExplore. The first time was an amazing Uganda experience (already reviewed) and this second experience with my husband to Kenya was equally amazing. Brian organized organized both tours for me and tailored them according to my wishes. As this is still the time of unsure flights and Covid difficulties, he was easily able to adapt to some changes with travel that were beyond our control.
GoExplore is a boutique business that is very personalized and offers you the equal and more than a large corporate operator. The price point is compatible with group tours but you will have your own personal driver and guide for yourself and there is nothing to compare with this luxury. Because of that, you will also be able to adapt your days schedule if you wish according what you want and not what is a groups plan.
We were completely happy and satisfied with all aspects of our travel (on both trips). Brian knows the safari tour industry and is constantly working to improve the business, his knowledge about lodges, the parks, restaurants and all minute aspects of the tour. He will be able to personally attest to the quality of whatever product he is recommending to you.
Sammi was our driver in Kenya and we can only say that he was amazing. He knew more about wildlife (and every birds name and details) than an encyclopedia, was an amazingly adept driver in sometimes rough conditions (traffic, rough park roads, etc.) and looked out for our interests. While respecting the animals, he went above and beyond trying to make sure we saw every different animal we could. We appreciated that he obviously respected and cared about the animals we were seeing. (Not all safari drivers do and will do anything to try to get to see something up close, even while encroaching too much on their space.) We had a minor vehicle difficulty and Sammi made sure that everything went smoothly and we didn't miss a minute of our trip or schedule. He is quite an asset to GoExplore. Sammi only drives on Kenya trips but if you go to Uganda, I highly recommend Moses who was equally great.
Overall, the trip was an unforgettable trip of a lifetime. If you haven't gone on a safari before, you should trip to put this on your life plan. There is nothing like it and when you plan it, you want a safari operator that will listen to your needs, wants, and budget and tailor it to fit you. GoExplore will do that in a personal way.
Our lodges that Brian picked were magical and the food was outstanding. There was nothing about our trip that we would have changed. I highly recommend GoExplore if you want to travel to any of the countries they operate in. If not those countries, then reconsider them over the more commercialized ones (such as South Africa) and you won't be disappointed.

This has been the trip of a lifetime. I'm so glad that we went on this Safari and got to explore Uganda! It's such an amazing country with beautiful people, animals - everything you could hope for in your dream vacation spot it truly felt like a memorable experience. The staff were all wonderful and went out of their way to make sure that everything would be perfect for us while we were there!

Travelling and working hand by hand with GoExplore Safaris, was a true and incredible experience. Having this African safari tour operator as one of our first partnerships is a true honour. During the trip a promotional video was created about Uganda, The Pearl of Africa, and its magical locations. The team also took thousands of great images for social media at @iago_rouco_photography and @goexploresafaris
We as Iago Rouco Photography would like to give special thanks to Charles, our driver during all our trips and Brian Ahereza the manager of GoExplore Safaris for helping us with everything.

My family and I were super happy with the 13 day safari trip we booked with GoExploreSafaris!! We can highly recommend the team for their professional approach starting from the communication before the trip (per email and chat) to the actual on road experience. Brian taylored the trip to our needs and joined us a guide throughout the journey. All the lodges he suggested were exellent and the timing of the daytrips was very well planned. Our driver Charles was reliable, friendly and we felt safe in his car at all times. We can´t believe Uganda has so much variety in flora and fauna!
