My mother and I had the best trip of our lives thanks to Kabira Safaris and our guide Arshley Brian. Our guide arrived promptly on time with a warm welcoming smile that remained with us for the duration of our journey. Arshley is the most knowledgeable guide I’ve encountered amongst my numerous African safari experiences. His broad knowledge of the Ugandan wildlife with an unmatchable expertise of birds and trees enhanced our experience and appreciation for the beauty Uganda has to offer. His vast awareness of wildlife along with his dynamic personality kept us entertained and engaged while traveling between national parks and forests. Arshley has an exceptionally trained eye and was able to spot a leopard in a tree that most would need binoculars to see. He continually exposed us to many new species beyond what I expected to encounter. While getting to know Arshley, I learned of his many accolades in guiding, birding, and forestry. He is the reason our experience was both educational and enjoyable. Arshley is so easy to talk to that by day two he was not just our guide, but also a close friend. He is fun and happy and this made our experience extra special. He was continuously concerned about our comfort level and general well-being as was Sharon, our program planner from Kabira, who would often check-in to ensure we were having the best possible trip.
When deciding on our specific itinerary, Sharon always responded promptly and supportively. I had many questions and concerns as one does when planning an expensive overseas excursion. Sharon helped put me at ease by thoroughly walking me through each step of the process. She even took a midnight phone call from me when I needed last minute assistance with the payment process. It was such a wonderful surprise when she took the time to meet us on our final evening and presented us with a thank you gift.
Our favorite day was the Gorilla Habituation Experience where we spent four hours with a magnificent mountain gorilla family. Although the cost of the permit was quite pricey, it was well worth it to encounter these creatures so up close and personal. I have fallen in love with the country, its peoples, and all the land has to offer. When I come back, there’s no question that I will be using Kabira again.

Please add my name to the overwhelming majority of beyond satisfied Kabira Safari clients!Sharon was amazing to work with in planning this trip. After booking the gorilla habituation trek I decided to see if I could extend my trip up to Murchison Falls. Sharon promptly looked into the matter and told me it would be a fair amount of extra driving. She even tried to find a flight and offered a shorter alternative to Queen Elizabeth Park with price quotes for all options. Having my heart set on Murchison Falls all the arrangements were put into place with a detailed day by day itinerary including what was included (practically everything) and what was not (laundry, gratuities, changes). All accommodations were excellent (Bweza Gorilla Lodge stood out in particular- reviewed separately).
As good as all these things were it was my driver and guide, Adam, that was the best part. For 7 days I was treated to his wonderful company which included hundreds of interesting facts and stories of his native Uganda. Adam knew as much about the geography, geology and wildlife we encountered as anyone possibly could. He was an expert at spotting wildlife at a distance or partially hidden which meant I saw ten times as much as I would have on my own. He also knew many of the people (other guides and lodge staff) along the way. I feel like I have made a real friend and hope to see him again. I can’t think of one reason not to use Kabira Safari for any East African excursion one might be planning.
THANK YOU KABIRA !!!!

I did the one day trekking tour from Kigali to go see the mountain gorillas in the volcanoes national park. I had an amazing experience, the gorillas were so closed (less than 2 meters), a small family, playful. It was beautiful to see them in their natural environment.

The Kabira agency provided me an excellent service, the booking was simple and efficient with a quick turnaround from Sharon (who is the responsible) to attend all my questions. The driver picked me up on time at my hotel, the drive was smooth, safe driver. The day was awesome. After the trek, the driver brought me to a very nice lodge were I had a 3 courses tasty lunch, and they even arranged for me to take a shower and they cleaned my hiking boots (all for 30 USD). I was brought back at the airport on time to make my evening flight. I will use again Kabira safaris tours for my upcoming trips in this part of the world.

We did our Tanzanian Safari trip through Kabira and their local tour partners. Sharon from Kabira tours helped us plan our trip in the last minute, she was very patience with our specific requirements and program amendments and made it all fit to our planned budget. Also, She was flexible coordinating with late evenings to match our timezone and convenience.

We booked the tour for 5days, each day was an amazing experience and our 9yr old enjoyed it well. Our safari guide Joseph, was very informative, experienced and easy to communicate with. The beautiful Tanzanian sunrise and sunsets, and a close observation of the Big 5 and many more, interactions with Masaii tribes, lodge stays in the wild are definitely the most memorable take backs from this trip.

All thanks to Sharon and Joseph to make it happen.

I had the most unique experience thanks to Akabira Safaris. Everything was very well organized, the staff was very responsive by email and the trekking team (including the trackers and porters) were all extremely dedicated and put a lot of effort to make our meeting with the gorillas the best we could imagine. The driver Frederic was also very professional and a very good company for the long ride there and back. I highly recommend anyone willing to do a gorilla trek in Rwanda to pick Kabira Safaris.

I has seen lions before but wanted to see the tree climbing ones. Though i was informed that it is by chance to see them i still decided to go to Queen Elizabeth National Park and try my luck. Choosing to travel with Kabira Safaris was a good option, the guide was very good and did all he could to make my dream come true. Thanks a lot guys I highly recommended and will book again with you.

Kabira safaris is amazing! Sharon was extremely helpful, kind, and welcoming from our initial contact to start planning and throughout our trip. We did an 11 day bespoke tour, all of which Sharon organized based in our interests. Both of our guides, Joe and Herman, were incredible. We had the most amazing special time in Tanzania and Uganda and we highly highly recommend traveling with Kabira!

We also loved all of our accommodations and day tours Kabira arrange for us. All the lodges were beautiful with delicious food.

We even had a delay in our flights and Kabira was able to accommodate the change.

Also to note- we were traveling as a group of 3 women and felt safe and welcomed everywhere we went.

We will send more pictures soon!

I booked a 3 day Gorilla trek with a night at Bunyonyi then added on a 4th day 24 hrs before I wanted to leave. Not only did they accommodate me but created an unforgettable experience, adding a chimpanzee trek and a boat ride in Queen Elizabeth National park, allowing me to see elephants, hippos, Cape buffalo AND tree lions. My guide/driver Isaac was wonderful. I can't say enough good things about the attentiveness of the staff and the agenda. I will not hesitate to use them again.

Wow what an incredible 4 out of 14 days we have just had with Kabira in Uganda. Our guide Allan was amazing! From the moment he picked us up he was professional, accommodating and made us feel like we were family. Nothing was too much trouble and he made sure we were happy and comfortable at all times. We were sad to say goodbye to continue the next part of our tour. Kabira are very lucky to have him as part of their team.
As for what we did in the last 4 days, it was action packed….chimpanzee trekking, day safari, Kazinga Channel river cruise, night safari, visit to the Pygmy community and of course the main event of the Mountain Gorilla Trek. We saw so many animals and had so many wonderful Ugandan experiences that we will cherish forever.
Thank you Allan and Kabira for a fantastic start to our African adventure!

We approached Kabira tours very last minute and the team were able to put together a fantastic tour of Kenya and Uganda within our budget.
Herman (our Ugandan tour guide) was the best guide we have ever ever had! Not only did he make our time memorable he went way above and beyond.
Our time on safari in Kenya and with the Gorillas in Uganda is an experience we will never forget .
Thanks to all the team at Kabira tours ! We would very much recommend.
