Our Mountain Gorilla Trekking was a bucket list adventure. Uganda has a lot more to offer than just Gorillas and Africa Wild Explorations showed us some of the many incredible things Uganda has to offer. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our Uganda tour. Our wonderful driver and guide, Ivan, took us through the most unforgettable country that you can imagine. The Chimpanzees in Kibale were fabulous as was the accommodation. In Queen Elizabeth NP, we stayed at Ishasha Wilderness Camp which was incredible. In the park we saw lions sleeping in trees, elephants, hippos, and all manner of antelope and birds. The final leg of the tour was the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where we got to see the Mountain Gorillas. This was certainly worth the hike up the mountain. We would certainly recommend that you train some for this hike as it can be strenuous up and especially down hill after a rain. Our 8-day tour with Africa Wild Explorations could not have gone smoother with pick up and drop off at the airport, shepherding us through the Covid testing process, first class hotels and food throughout the trip. Uganda might seem a bit intimidating, but Abiaz and Doreen (the owners) make this an easy, fun and unforgettable adventure. If you are thinking about Uganda, Africa Wild Explorations should be at the top of your list for tour companies.

In August 2021, I took a solo trip to Uganda. Originally two friends were supposed to join me but had to cancel for various reasons. I hesitated to go alone and Abiaz Rwamwiri assured me I would well cared for and have a great experience. So I decided to go alone. Joseph Mutebi was my guide and he was truly AMAZING! He was knowledgeable, kind, accommodating and fun. He joined me at every meal so that I wouldn’t have to eat alone. On the fourth day (of eleven) I slipped and badly sprained my ankle. This is when I saw a level of service that I didn’t know existed. Joseph arranged a wheel chair to get me to the nurse’s office at the hotel. The nurse had left for the day and he arranged for her to return to look at my ankle. He drove two hours to pick up crutches for me and went to the pharmacy to pick up medications I needed for pain and inflammation. Each evening, he unwrapped the ace bandage, applied analgesic cream, massaged the affected area and rewrapped my ankle. I wanted to still go on the chimpanzee tracking. He arranged a separate tracking for me so I wouldn’t hold up the group. He gave me a croc since my foot wouldn’t fit in a hiking boot. He came along as well to ensure I could get along ok. He carried my backpack and acted as my photographer since I couldn’t get to certain areas with my crutches. After we found the chimps and had our time with them, he parked me with the ranger and ran back to the car so he could pick me up and I wouldn’t have to walk back. I was not charged anything for the extra services, crutches, medication or support. He also encouraged me and kept tabs on my every move when I went on the gorilla tracking. When I left, I knew I had a new family member in Joseph. Since my return to the US, he and Africa Wild have both checked in on me. Abiaz and Doreen from Africa Wild organize the most amazing trips. I’m so grateful I went with them and allowed them to design my trip. Most people come to Uganda just for the gorillas but there is so much more! Murchison Falls was amazing - the park has an abundance of wildlife and birds. Driving through towns and along the countryside showed me why Uganda is the Pearl of Africa. The personal touches allowed me to have an experience I will never forget. I highly recommend Africa Wild Explorations!

In November 2018 I traveled to Uganda with a group of six women. We were met at the airport by a guide from Africa Wild who stayed with us for our entire trip until he dropped us back at the airport on our departure day. We were all impressed by his knowledge, professionalism and especially his heart. Africa Wild is a family owned business that truly cares for their customers, the country of Uganda and its people & wildlife. They have a passion for educating the world about their amazing country and raising awareness about its people, animals and culture. They worked hard to meet our needs and budget and planned an amazing trip that worked for our group. We felt safe and comfortable the entire time. I would highly recommend Africa Wild to anyone traveling to Uganda. We had an absolutely incredible experience and I wholeheartedly trust this one of a kind company.

By far the most incredible trip I have ever done! I have traveled the world and seen a lot of amazing places but nothing compares to the sites and people of Uganda as presented by Africa Wild Explorations! From the moment we landed to the last seconds of our trip it was filled with amazing service, accommodations and experiences. I will be back! Thank you Abiaz, you and your incredible team made this truly the trip Of a lifetime for me.
