They organized our 15 day trip hotels around Uganda and got us the permits for chimpanzees and gorilla trekking. EverThing worked out perfectly fine and we had a great experience with the company. Would always recommend booking with them!

Choosing Africa Adventure Vacations was the absolute best decision I made in planning this trip of a lifetime to Uganda! I knew that the right company and guide would make or break this trip of a lifetime. It was important for me to have a local company who employed local people and planning our trip was so easy to do with the office staff - it was seamless. The accommodations were great each stop we made and the food was as so yummy. I travelled all over doing a Chimpanzee trek, Gorilla trek, walked in the Bigodi Swamp, had game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park, including the Ishasha Sector and relaxed at Bunyonyi Lake. I had countless authentic adventures which have created incredible memories I will keep for the rest of my life (along with 6,000+ photos!), and it is all because of our Guide, Najib who made it happen for me. By the end of spending 8 days together in a safari truck traveling with Najib, we became a family and I now feel that I have made a friend for life. He did everything he could to make sure that I had the best experience possible. Najib is incredibly kind. Not just with me but with everyone we talked to. Judging by the big smiles people had when he greeted them, tells me he is a man of solid character who makes friends everywhere he goes. I had so many questions about the animals, trees, plants, and the local people with their local traditions, languages and cultures - I was always so impressed by Najib's knowledge! He is a wealth of information and I talked his ears off. There were several things I wish I knew before I got to Uganda, such as: 1. Purchase Ugandan shillings instead of US Dollars - As a Canadian, converting to US is expensive and most of the more rural locations in Uganda, although they will accept US dollars, find it difficult to get to an urban area to convert it to usable cash. Ugandan banks are SLOW, and it took us quite a bit of time, out of our already packed itinerary, to get our money converted to shillings. 2. Bring some candy or small gifts for the children - Everywhere we went the kids would give us huge smiles and wave, yelling "How are you!" in greeting. Even when we are speeding past their homes in the Land Cruiser they would run and wave. When I had a chance to stop, I wish I had treats for them. Later I bought some pipis (lollipops) from a local store, but not until half way through our trip. 3. You don't need to pack as much as you think you do and someone is always helping to carry your bag! It is difficult to get laundry done in some places, so just wear things again and again -- nobody will notice! I can't say enough about how truly grateful I am to our Guide, Najib who is 100% the reason I had such an amazing experience in Uganda.

We did a 10 day private tour in Uganda, beautiful landscape, wildlife and peoples . We loved every day and we definitely recommend this company. Robert, our planning guide, was the best at planning an unforgettable trip. Our visit to the national park, the gorillas and chimpanzee trek and the rest of the trip were perfectly organised and provided us with an amazing experience and I would highly recommend their services. The guide was FRANK and he is the best guide!!!thank to him we had the opportunity to see the big five, gorillas and chimpanzees. Uganda is really unique place. We want to get back there as soon as possible!

We highly recommend Africa Adventure Vacations. We didn’t have much lead time for planning our trip, but that was no problem for them. They were very accommodating and thoughtful to what we most wanted to see or experience, even getting us gorilla trekking permits, etc. Robert created several itineraries as I asked questions via email to come up with the perfect 5 night / 6 day safari and gorilla trekking experience. Stanley our driver was perfect because he not only helped us see all the animals we wanted to see, and more… but he could help spot and identify birds for my birding daughter. It was important to me to find a local company so the money we were spending supported the community. Wiring the money was probably the most nerve wrecking thing, but it all worked out as promised. But I learned it’s best to wire in the US funds quoted (or whatever funds quoted in your itinerary) as the exchange rates get weird and costs more than you expect. We selected moderately priced accommodations, and were very happy with all the lodges and food. We’d highly recommend working with them!
