All I can say is WOW! This was truly a trip of a lifetime! We were able to see gorillas, lions, elephants, hippos, chimps, several species of monkeys, water buffalo, giraffes, zebras, many species of grazing animals, countless birds and a leopard! All of the accommodations we stayed in (Bakiga, Twin Lakes, Rwakobo Rock Lodges) were all top notch! The food and service at each place were both wonderful! What really made our trip special was our tour guide Bosco! He was so energetic and passionate about his country! He had tons of knowledge and stories to share! Bosco went over and above to make us feel welcome and met all of our needs! I'd also like to say, he is an excellent driver considering some of the roads are quite challenging and bumpy! We left there was such an appreciation and love for the Ugandan landscape/culture/people all because of Bosco! We also had an excellent New Year's celebration we will never forget!

Perfect from the start to end. Clear and fast communication going beyond only the tour as booked. Would highly recommend. Taking all health measures in account.

We had a wonderful experience with Insight Safaris. We live in Kampala and had originally booked this trip for Easter 2020 but of course due to Covid-19 we had to postpone. Communication with Calah was really great and she informed us immediately when Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was open again and gorilla trekking was possible again. They rearranged everything for us in just a few days so we were able to go on the 5 day trip. We were the first people to go see the gorillas since March which was pretty amazing. We then went from Bwindi on to Queen Elizabeth National Park. We had said we really wanted to see the highlights of the area and Calah really did a great job arranging exactly what we wanted. Calah really helped to customize our trip to fit our schedule and what we wanted to see. Our guide during the trip was also really great. He drove very safely, which is something that always worries me, he was really friendly and informative and made sure we had a great experience. If you are coming to Uganda, I would highly recommend this company!

We booked to see the gorillas well in advance and obviously with time we had multiple questions. Calah always answered all our enquiries fully, friendly and timely. However the best was the actual experience and the way the trip was organized. Our tour guide, Auyb, was absolutely amazing, super friendly, patient, knowledgeable, helpful, pro-active and considerable. We went at the start of the low season, so there was a risk not to be able to see everything as planned but thanks to Ayub and his last minute re-scheduling we managed to see more than expected. Unfortunately we had only 6 days to spare, so we went for the 4 day gorilla trekking and lake safari but it was totally worth it. We absolutely recommend and definitely you should use Insight Safari Holidays.

We had a wonderful experience with Insight Safaris, Uganda. From the time we booked, Calah was outstanding and facilitated all our needs in a warm and caring way. Thank you! We had Bahati (Moses) as our guide, who was an excellent and safe driver; exceptionally competent wildlife expert; great spotter of distant game which we could hardly see even with our binoculars; and professional in every way. We saw everything we had dreamed of including the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Our guide Bahati was entertaining and introduced us to many local traditions (and knowledge) which helped us to understand this wonderful and unique country. We felt safe all the time, and looked after. Thank you so much.
