We booked with Kubwa Five Safaris and we got to know them through a friend, who had gone to Kenya a year ago, and him and his family booked with this company.

We went to Naivasha, Amboseli, Masai Mara, Nakuru and Tsavo, all very different experiences and all great in their own way.
We saw more wildlife than we ever dreamed possible (the big five and many more!) and had the holiday of a lifetime. Would highly recommend Spirit of Kenya.
Our guide Anthony made the wildlife come to life, and I greatly learned many new things from him. He also answered all of our questions regarding flora and fauna, and was very patient and kind with us.
Without a doubt, we will again plan a trip with Kubwa Five Safaris to give us an equally magical experience!

The whole safari was amazing and we would totally recommend Kubwa Five Safaris.

We had a wonderful experience organized by Kubwa Five Safaris. The service was very customer oriented and the tour guide really knew everything about animals and birds.

We had a lot to see and experience, most especially the culture (traditions) in Zambia.

The daily activities we had during our vacation in Zambia were well selected, we enjoyed every activity.

We plan to visit Zimbabwe next year and we still choose Kubwa Five Safaris to organise our trip there.

Our stay in various hotels became so much more than expected. The trip to Zambia became memorable because of Kubwa Five Safaris. Initially we planned our trip for 8 days and we extended it for 7 more days so that we could visit Botswana too. We had 2 of day of chilling in each country.
Innocent, our guide was a great guide, he showed us some places which were not part of our itinerary. He's a brilliant man who really loves where he comes from and did a spectacular job of making me love it too. I must say he's gem of a person and I will highly recommend that you plan out your trip with Kubwa Five Safaris for your amazing holiday in Zambia and Botswana.

We did the 20 day Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. (Luxury)
And the reason why i give 4 stars and not 5 is because i think some of the Hotels could be better curated. Specifically the ones in Kenya and Bwindi (Uganda), Although they were good located inside the parks, they were a bit old. Not that they were cheap hotels, they must have been luxury at some point and they still hold the price tag. But i think it is worth exploring other smaller hotel/lodges with a boutique feel "understated luxury”, more personal. You can arrange all this with Joseph, because he wants to give you the best trip possible, i am sure of that.

The drivers/guides were professional and we got along with all 3 of them. Since the longest time was spent In Uganda with Samuel, we were sad to say goodbye to him at the airport after 12 days together. Samuel is a responsible and safe driver, polite, good sense of humor, a bit shy and a great smile.

Some of the hotels are upper mid range as specified on the list from the agency, and i was told that they choose this ones (instead of the luxury option) because of location. This is true for the 1st lodge in Murchinson National park. We only wish we would have had a little time to sit down and see the sunset over the river. The game drives can be as long or short as you want so one of the afternoons make sure you are back before sunset and take 20 minutes to sit outside and enjoy the views.

In Kibale, Uganda our tip would be to do the community walk (Note that the community walk can be as short or long as you want.) that afternoon instead of the next day after the chimpanzee trek. The reason being, that after the chimpanzee trek you can drive straight to Kyaninga and arrive there early. This is a beautiful hotel where you can do a few activities at the lodge….and we thought the setting is spectacular (they will also do your laundry complimentary so make sure you give it straight away as you arrive) We manage to be there by 13:00 and jump in the lake for a short swim, then we did a walk around the crater.

Lake Bunyonyi, the view to the lake 👍🏼, nice staff at the restaurant and they have a BARISTA in house, so if you like coffee Cyrus makes a perfect cup every time.

Wild Waters lodge is WOW place and the rafting there was so much fun….for some reason it was all about tipping the boat over, never before in other rafting’s was that the main objective but here i guess the currents are optimum for safe tipping.

We booked with Kubwa Five Safaris during COVID-19 pandemic for a trip to Rwanda shortly after Rwanda had opened her airports for international flights. We visited a number of places. We greatly needed this kind of trip.

We were 17 of us, the Standard Operating Procedures such as wearing of masks, sanitizers, etc, were all put in place, we used two minibuses which imply that social distance was observed.

We enjoyed the game drives and boat ride, while on our game drive, we saw; lions, elephants, buffaloes, hippos, etc. The accommodations were well selected and meals were great.

We will travel with Kubwa Five Safaris again.

We took 14 days of vacation in Uganda. Our tour started when an excellent guide/driver, Steven picked us at the airport. Steven is a focused, knowledgeable guide who paid attention to all details in order to provide a memorable and safe experience. He proved many times that he is "The Best Tour Guide in Uganda." For example, he spotted a leopard in a tree just before sunset from quite a distance and provided us with the thrill of fabulous close-up photos/video. We visited Lake Mburo National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kibale Forest National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, and Kidepo Valley National Park.

The Chimpanzee and Gorilla trekking was very incredible. We saw the big five and dozens of lions in Murchison Falls National, Queen Elizabeth National Park as well as the tree climbing lions in Ishasha. The Rhino trekking at Ziwa Rhino sanctuary was out of ordinary.

Uganda should be preferentially considered by adventure travelers as it offers world-renowned Gorilla Trekking and a less crowded safari experience. The country was more beautiful, the people were friendly and we saw more wild animals than I ever imagined.
I highly recommend this company to anyone for a trip of a lifetime.

We were two people for a budget four days safari in Uganda.

Our experience was wonderful. Good communication, best price offered, and great car. The guys made their best to reshape the initial proposal based on our preferences, and at the end the tour went beyond our expectations.

Our driver and guide was driving sporty but definitely safely, and had deep knowledge of all the places, which allowed to spot very many animals, including leopards and lions.

Absolutely recommended to those how love exploring alternative routes.

We booked the 8 days safari visiting Serengeti national park, Ngorongoro crater, and Tarangire national park and we loved every second of it.

Kubwa Five Safaris displayed a high level of customer care, timekeeping and this included pickup at the airport with a dedicated driver/guide who was with us throughout our safari experience in Tanzania, and travel between all of our chosen destinations.

The organization and the accommodations were perfect. John knows how to find the best view of the animals and let us time to observe. The highlight of the tour was the wildebeest migration. Everything was perfect.

We are very thankful that Kubwa Five Safaris put together such an amazing experience for us. We are so happy that we had an amazing guide the whole way and could understand a little better what was going on around us at any given time.

So I can recommend Kubwa Five Safaris without any doubt! If I plan a further trip to this part of Africa I surely will try to do it with Kubwa Five Safaris again!

We enjoyed a great tour with Kubwa five safaris and the guide was excellent with a lot of knowledge about Uganda. Guide was a remarkable person but whose knowledge of birding was first rate and a proud Uganda, Every time we saw a new animal or bird he got as excited and he was able to explain everything about the bird and Animals in the destination. That’s the type of guide you want! With his help my husband identified about 300 new species of birds. He also seemed to know everyone in Uganda! The gorilla treks was amazing, we big up Kubwa five safaris and the Team your highly recommended.

This was my first time to go to Kenya and also my first to use a tours and travel agent for my holiday. I booked as a solo travelers but I wanted to join other travelers, Kubwa Five Safaris made a great arrangement and I was added to the group that was full of life. We were in Maasai Mara for 3 days and 2 nights.

I worked with Joseph all through, for about 3 months before my trip. He never got tired with my many questions and reservations that I had.

He provided with me various options, and this made my decision making easier.

I booked for a budget safari and I paid in instalments and everything went smooth.

The drive was on time at airport, transfer from the airport to the hotel was prompt with no hitches- we are very time cautious, so this was quite a plus for us.

Pick up from hotel to the airport was also smooth.

I had a wonderful wildlife vacation in Maasai Mara.

After the two game drives in Maasai Mara, we visited the Maasai cultural village, I got to learn a lot about the Maasai Mara.

All in all, thank you Joseph and your team for being reliable.

In a nutshell, thank you for giving me the confidence I needed.

Given a chance, I would recommend your services to anyone and I can't wait to book again you.
