My husband and I are just back from a 12 day safari in Uganda which was such an incredible experience. I contacted 3 local safari organisers in Kampala for quotes and Jesse-Tom at Lifetime Safaris stuck out as clearly the most professional, prompt, polite and helpful. Very quickly he helped us work through the itinerary we had come up with and suggested some alterations which made all the difference to our trip. For instance I had suggested staying at a hotel on the south bank of Murchison Falls and Jesse-Tom pointed out it would be much better to stay on the north/park side to save having to get a very early ferry with the masses before the dawn game drive, he saved us hours!

Gerald, our driver is one in a million! He picked us up from the airport as our driver/guide and dropped us off 13 days later as a dear friend. He is such an excellent and safe driver, has a wealth of knowledge about Uganda and it's fascinating history, knows all the wildlife and where to search for it even when other guides were giving up, always went out of his way to help and look after us and is great fun. We wanted to call by a hospital to see a colleague and Gerald was so helpful and made the trip possible and easy.

We cannot recommend highly enough both Jesse-Tom at Lifetime Safaris and Gerald as driver/guide, they are both completely honourable and excellent at their jobs. Don't hesitate to use both!

We booked a Uganda trip last minute from dubai during COVID and ended up being such a good trip!

Me and my friend rob are pretty adventurous twosome and didn’t want to be stuck to a whole safari tour.

Lifetime let us hire the car/driver and dictate our own itinerary - the rate was very affordable and driver and car were the best.

The driver: Sula is a living legend and not only was he very reliable, experienced and hardworking but he also was quite good when we ended u of ping safaris in national parks. He also has a lot of amazing stories from growing up in Uganda. Best part is he was fliexible on the route and timings of driving so we got to see a lot in short time!

The car: 97 land cruiser line green was epic! Perfect for two ppl but could do three as well.

Highly recommended for young flexible travelers booking the car/driver through lifetime and then all your permits and lodging separate

My friend and I recently returned from the most amazing trip of a lifetime. This great experience could not have done without the expertise of Lifetime Experience Safaris. We are very happy with the service from the beginning to an end. We contacted three different safaris company and Lifetime Experience Safaris immediately stood out. Jesse-Tom was quick to response and provided us with very helpful information. After we decided to go with them, the payment process was very flexible and accommodating. Gerald, our guide and driver is very knowledgeable both about the wildlife and the history of the country. Thank you so very much for the most amazing experience in Uganda! Weebale Nnyo Ssebos!!!

From the moment that we were picked up by our driver, Sula, we knew we were in excellent hands. We did the three day murchinson falls safari and it was truly the experience of a lifetime. Every second of our trip was orchestrated with perfection by lifetime safaris. From the start Jesse Tom was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and responsive, making it easy to trust and plan our trip. Sula was friendly, knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed spending our days with him! He was out ‘leopard’ spotter!! We saw the big 5, thanks to Sula and our park guide Sam. Both were amazing and friendly, knowledgeable and tenacious in their search for wildlife.
We stayed at Pakuba lodge, it was lovely, good food and very pleasant staff. I would stay there again. Also, we were able to get out very early and see a pack of lions that was close to that hotel.
I plan to use lifetime safaris for my next trip to Uganda which is already in the works :)

My wife and I just finished a 17-day Uganda safari and we couldn't be happier with how it went. The organizer, Jesse-Tom was quick to respond to our questions and always able to accommodate our requests for alterations and additions to our itinerary. We did a mid-range private safari and found the accommodations and food to be wonderful at every place we went. Our driver/guide Gerald was incredibly knowledgeable and great at spotting wildlife. With Gerald's help, we saw plenty of lions, giraffes, leopards, elephants, exotic birds, and other wildlife. We did game drives, boat trips on the Nile, night safaris, and walking safaris. One of the things that made Uganda a great choice was that most of our wildlife encounters occurred without any other vehicles around, making the experience very intimate. Of course one of the best things about visiting Uganda is the opportunity to see a wide variety of primates. On our trip, we had close encounters with gorillas, chimpanzees, and golden monkeys! It should also be mentioned that the varied landscapes and people of Uganda are also fascinating and beautiful.
If you are considering a trip to East Africa to see wildlife, I would definitely encourage you to consider Uganda as your destination of choice, and Lifetime Experience Safaris as the company to go with for a wonderful, personalized experience.

We spent more than 2 weeks cruising Uganda. The trip was planned absolutely wonderfully. We tasted full taste and aroma of Africa, we saw many animals (lions, leopards, gorillas, hippos, chimpanzees, crocodiles ...) We visited the national parks Murchison, Bwindi, Kibale, Mburo, rode a boat at the source of the Nile in Jinja, spent pleasant relaxation on Lake Byunonyi and many more ... Our guides / drivers Gerald and Sula were absolutely incredible! Professionals able to cope in all situations, nice, happy ... They both willingly commented on the ordinary life of the people we saw around us. It was their mission to make sure we had our best holiday. Jesse can be very proud of his colleagues! Indeed a Lifetime Experience - more than that: Total and Absolutely the Greatest Experience!

At the beginning there was the idea of climbing the 3rd African  Summit Margherita Peak in Uganda, then the five of us bought tickets and  Jessie Tom created the program! It was very intensive and really rich. All arrangements went smoothly, there were no complaints and Jessie organized it all professionally. Both Jessie and our driver- guide greated us at the airport and then everything was finalised at the place of our accommodation. In the morning our adventure began! Let us point out and stress that everything has been implemented as planned! Trekking to Margherita wonderful, full of suprises and delight! Rwenzori Mountain Service truly professional! We all climbed the top and I can genuinely recommend their service, with clear conscience! Other activities, safaries, cruises, sightseeing all absolutely amazing! Baylon-our driver a little taciturn but really professional. Generally, we are all very happy that we entrusted the organization of our trip to Jessie and Lifetime Experience Safaries! I highly recommend them to everyone who wishes to experience an unforgettable adventure in Uganda!

We spent part of our honeymoon in Uganda, where our entire trip was organized by Lifetime Experience Safaris. I contacted Jesse a few months before and he was super helpful all the way through the actual safari. He organized our trip which included seeing the gorillas in Bwindi as well as a short safari at Queen Elizabeth Park. He also arranged for our COVID test and was reachable any time before and during our trip. The lodges that were chosen by Jesse were super nice and Gerald, our driver, was simply amazing! On the top of being a good driver, he also knows a lot about Uganda and really made our trip even more enjoyable.
Seeing the gorillas was such an unforgettable experience! Everything was arranged for us, permits, guides etc. The rest of the trip was also very nice, in Queen Elizabeth we were sleeping in a lodge just next to hippos :) and people in Uganda are so nice and welcoming! I can only recommend Lifetime Experience Safari and would really encourage you to use their services for your trip to Uganda!

We had an amazing 2-Day safari in Murchison Falls with the "cat-man" Sula. Sula is an excellent driver, and he helped us find 4 leopards and 6 lions in only 2 days. He also made our transit back to Entebbe and the Covid testing process simple and smooth. We were extremely happy with our experience, and we would highly recommend Lifetime Experience Safaris. We will be using them again in the near future.

After having limited opportunities to travel because of Covid, I reached out to Jesse-Tom to plan a trip in Uganda. Jesse-Tom is a very good communicator and the 10 day safari which he put together exactly fit our needs. We were able to pay into a euro bank account, which also made things easier for us.

The trip was a good mix of drives, walks and boat trips. The accommodations were worth a trip by themselves, comfortable lodges in fantastic locations.

Our driver Byron picked us up from our guesthouse in Entebbe and provided us with a superb experience. He knows a lot about the country and happily shares this information. He can spot birds and animals, like nobody else and provided us with excellent opportunities to capture these animals on pictures. During the connecting drives he can find the best places for lunch and is a fun traveling companion.

All in all, this was an unforgettable experience. I can highly recommend Lifetime experience without any hesitation to anybody who want to visit Uganda.
