Came back from an amazing trip through Rwanda and Uganda with Richard and Colleb . Richard was great in helping find an itinerary that suited our time frame and our requested highlights in Rwanda and Uganda. We had the pleasure of two guides on our trip and they complemented each other perfectly. We saw everything we wanted and more. We booked a budget trip which means mid range to luxury in most places in the world. What we liked the most were they used local accommodations which meant the money goes back into the country and not an overseas investors pockets. Accommodations were great and food was incredible with three course meals and great locations. Hippos joined us for dinner many times which was incredible. The gorillas were amazing but the highlight was spending time with these guides. It was an adventure from start to finish. I cannot recommend them enough. Nothing was an problem and all our wants and needs were catered for. I only wish we spent more time in their beautiful country.

Just returned from 2 weeks tour which was truly memorable and the holiday of a lifetime. From meeting us at airport arrivals to dropping us off at the airport at the end of our holiday they couldn’t have done more. The thought and planning that went into our holiday was exceptional. It really was tailored to us. Richard and his team do a fabulous job and our guide Kefar for the 2 weeks, was 1 in a million. Always going the extra mile to make sure we had an amazing time (which we did!) and really caring everything went smoothly. I can’t recommend this company enough, not just from a customer service perspective but also working with local communities in Uganda to ensure tourists like us stayed at places that benefited the local community and wildlife. Thank you for the most wonderful experience!

I really enjoyed my safari with Richard. When I first contacted Karumuna Safaris, I listed everything that I wanted to see and do. They put together an itinerary that included everything that I had mentioned and allowed me to make any changes that I wanted to make. Richard, Jonah, and Henry answered all of my questions before the tour and Richard followed up to see that everything was alright after the tour. All accommodations were nice and well located. During our travels from one location to the next, Richard made some stops at different sites to show me things along the way. He is a very good and enthusiastic guide and I could tell that he was really committed to making this safari the best experience possible.

I don’t agree with Oskars(ozy63) statement. I was in that group, which he is talking about. And yes, there were small unexpected mistakes, but the welcoming and attitude was excellent. Great team of drivers. If I have to ride one more time, I would use their services.

Beware or travel agent Karumuna Safaris and his owner Richard Kisembo. He is very cheating person and dishonesty businesman. We have ordered the 14 day Tour around Uganda. My group consist 18 person. We have confirmed 8 different lodges, camps and hotels for 13 nights. The owner of Karumuna Safaris was very rude and tricky person. During the Trip he have cheated the tourists from Latvia. He has changed the high level lodges for example de luxe Twiga Safaris Lodge to very low kevel budget lodge for two nights without any compensation. The rooms there were such a dorm. There were a lot faults and misunderstanding. In 60% of lodges/guest houses, hotels we have a problems. In some cases were a huge problems. For example - at the Chimpanzee Guest House (de luxe) we have 6 rooms instead 10. The rest rooms had offered at othet place ~ 2-3 km from at muddy place and very dirty lodge/camp - Rwetera Safaris and Camp. The rooms here were awful. At the Banyoni lake we have a Banyoni lLake View Resort. 50% of rooms were like a dorm. A lot customers were very disappointing. Travel Company Karumuna Safaris Totally disgrace Uganda and all Tourism Industry as well.

Dear Oskars Thank you for your great review upon your safari in Uganda but its sad to hear you talking about us that you were handled poorly by karumuna safaris and owner, and for us as a company we are very happy that the 17 persons in your group were very happy of our services but Oskars who traveled with us, didn't pay and traveled at a free cost for 14 days having the same services as the 17 persons who made payments can speak like this its too sad. Mr Oskars if you want to visit for Uganda for one more time you need to revise your way of operation we can say from our side that we have never cheated any client from Latvia since we started getting clients from your country.
