I travelled to Uganda in Febuary 2022 wth my son and 23 year old grandson on this "trip of a lifetime."
Despite our trip being cancelled twice due to covid and KLM changing our flights Mclean and the team at Africa Adventure Safaris designed a fantastic holiday for us which went off without a single problem.We saw everything we wanted to see and more due in no small part to our driver-guide,Kenneth Muhindi ,who was amazing with a vast knowledge of the flora,fauna,culture and history of Uganda.
We opted for the budget accomodation and were expecting some sort of permanent tents but got beautiful thatched ,en-suite lodges and the food was excellent everywhere we stayed.
The trip was full on with long days but more than fullfilled all our expectations especially the time spent with the gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest-a truly emotional experience.
We could not fault the trip,the itinerary or the organisation and would highly recommend Africa Adventure Safaris .

We organized our African adventure with the help of Anna. In our case, this was a 4days/3nights trip to Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. Anna offered the best help we could wish for, especially in COVID times where we were a bit unsure about the impact on our trip, replying quickly and swiftly to our mail and getting us in touch with the right people in Kigali who could help us out further.

Our driver and guide for the trip was Joan, with whom we had an unforgettable experience in Volcanoes NP. Both Anna and Joan’s help was extended far beyond the trip, helping us out with hiring a car, getting movement clearance, optimizing the rest of our itinerary, getting COVID tests etc.

Would highly recommend to anybody visiting Rwanda or Uganda!

We just took a 10 day Uganda Gorilla Trek safari with African Adventure Safaris. Arrangements were well planned, and all our requests were fulfilled to our satisfaction. Our Guide Luchi William was very accommodating as well, and was very pleasant to deal with. Ms. Mclean was responsive to all email and texts and addressed all our concerns. The 4x4 Land Cruiser Vehicle they provided was very good. It was amazing experience with Gorilla and Chimp Trekking (a little luck always helps!!). I strongly recommend this company, if you are visiting Uganda for Gorilla / Chimpanzee Trekking.

In general the trip was a great experience. The accomodation was particularly good and exceeded our expectations. Our guide was a great driver, I felt safe on the roads the whole time. Few small cons - the guide requested / pestered us about getting our family and friends to travel to Uganda repeatedly which got quite tiresome. And some things I thought were included (on the agreed/final itinerary) were apparently not included as we found out whilst on the tour - these were not costly items but I found it very frustrating having spent so much time working through the planning and paying a lot of money for the tour, the company should ensure inclusions and exclusions are clear prior. Overall we had a good experience with the tour company. The Gorilla Trekking and Golden monkey trekking is an unreal experience, I highly recommend doing it.

We used Africa Adventure Safaris for a trip in Rwanda recently and had a great time. They were helpful in customizing our itinerary, as we did two national parks (Volcanoes for 4 days and Nyungwe for 3 days) within a week of each other and had different guides for each (both of which were excellent and knowledgeable). Anna there was very responsive when we had questions and also helped us in a jam when we needed to find a Covid PCR test last minute for entry into one of the parks. They had excellent safety protocols in place and made us feel secure and comfortable. Would recommend!

We are still absorbing a fabulous 13-day trip to Uganda, which we booked through Africa Adventure Safaris. It was a pleasure working with Anna. She provided us with prompt, expert and professional advice on all aspects of our trip, building us a world-class 13-day itinerary that included a gorilla habituation trek in Biwindi Impenetrable National Park (NP); lion tracking, game drives, and a boat cruise along the Kazinga Channel in Queen Elizabeth NP; chimpanzee tracking in Kigali NP; a nature walk in the Bigodi wetlands; game drives in Murchison Falls NP; a boat cruise on the Victoria Nile to Murchison Falls; game drives in Kidepo Valley NP; a visit to the Karamojong Community; and Rhino tracking in the Zziwa Rhino Sanctuary. While the itinerary was excellent, it came to life with our driver/guide Kenneth. His knowledge of Uganda, including its history, culture and wildlife were outstanding. We could not have had a better driver or guide. He was quick to use his experience as a park ranger in both Biwindi Impenetrable and Queen Elizabeth NPs and his extensive network of contacts to help ensure that every aspect of our trip and experiences were the best they could be. We also appreciated his keen eye and outstanding ability to spot and identify birds and other wildlife. The trip exceeded our expectations. We were impressed with the abundance and variety of wildlife; the progressive policies of Uganda’s national park system; and the warmth of the Ugandan people.

We have just returned from a 9 day trip to Uganda organised by the excellent Maclean in the Kampala office of Africa Adventure Safaris, We started emails 2 years ago and the trip has been re-scheduled many times due to covid without difficulty. I have used wire transfer, visa and cash payments on arrival at various stages all worked very well and safe. Our guide was an expert Mr.William Luchi, he was super organised, on time, safe, knowledgeable in all aspects of nature and the cultures of his people and no request was a problem. An absolute professional. I think we were very lucky to have him looking after myself my wife and daughter.
The trip itself was unbelievable, we opted for the luxury accommodation and were not dissappointed with any of the choices made by the company. We stayed at Kabalega Wilderness Camp 2 nights, Turacco Treetops 2 nights, Katara Lodge 2 nights, Four Gorilla Lodge 1 night, Birdsnest Resort 1 night all can be viewed on line and the pictures dont lie they are spectacular. Our trip involved games drives x 3 ,river cruise x 2, chimp tracking, and the highlight gorilla tracking. We also visited local communities & Murchison Falls , too much to get into detail.
Food was fantastic with nearly all resorts offering international cuisine with a Uganda twist. The local people & staff are very welcoming, a beautiful country all round and certainly a hidden gem that needs to be visited before commercial tourism kicks in. We had the time of our lives and I have no hesitation to recommend Uganda as a destination & Africa Adventure Safaris as your tour operator. If you need any additional info please message me

I did my second excellent trip with Africa Adv Safaris: the first took place mostly in Uganda, the second one was done in Rwanda. As well as the first trip everything has been perfectly organized by Anna, guides (I had 2) were very nice, professional and helpful.
I had a health problem during my stay, and it's mostly in difficulties that you can evaluate the quality of a travel agency: I have been so well supported by both Anna in Uganda and the guide in Rwanda, that even if I had a hard time, I never felt alone. They helped me to find the best solution, and always guaranteed their presence. I felt them as true friends.

Everything was so well organised, the lodges were very good and our guide (Kenneth) was exceptional. The tour included a cross section of activities and a lot of travelling and we were successful in seeing all of the animals we wanted to see. However I do not think this would have been possible without Kenneth's extensive knowledge of the areas and the national parks specifically. Kenneth had a story to tell about the parks themselves, the animals, the local area, the history and culture.

We thoroughly enjoyed every part of our trip and would be more than happy to recommend both the company and Kenneth personally.

As a teenager traveling with 9 other members of family (3 other teenagers included), I was AMAZED at not only what Africa had to offer in terms of animals and landscape but also the people we met there. Our guides Fred and Luchi (William), and Luchi’s trainee Danny were incredible; we could not have asked for better people to spend 14 days of journeying with. We started in Uganda where we did rhino and chimp tracking, then moved Queen Elizabeth, then to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for the gorillas (amazing), and finally finished in Rwanda. All 3 guides were so personable and knowledgeable about everything we could’ve hoped to learn about African countries. They also made us feel so safe and secure and gave us very close-up experiences of people’s cultures in Uganda. Very high quality people. Thank you Africa Adventure Safaris! I hope to travel back to Africa someday as an adult so I can experience this whole thing again! 100/10 would recommend.
