I recently hired Adventure Afrika to take a party of six (3 couples) around Uganda for chimpanzee tracking, silverback gorilla trekking, and safari drives.

All of our basic needs and wants were met. However, what made Nkusi Gerald and Adventure Afrika special was the personal relationship Gerald was able to foster and the intimate knowledge he has of the natural environment. By the end of the trip I felt like I got a genuine Ugandan experience, as opposed to some commercial tourist experience, and like I was leaving a life long friend.

A great compliment must also be made towards Gerald’s staff. We had a driver, named Bashir, escort us around Uganda for our two week trip and he was truly pleasant to be around. Also knowing what seemed like every road in Uganda and specific knowledge about the wildlife in the safaris made him seem very unique.

Highly recommend anyone coming to Uganda to hire Adventure Afrika.

Our trip was incredible. We had a packed itinerary that took advantage of every opportunity and made great use of our limited time. Gerald, Peter, Valence, Bashir, and all of Adventure Afrika's employees are amazing. They are patient, detail- oriented, and responsive to individual needs and last minute changes. If you express interest in a beautiful tree on the side of the road, they will stop for a photo opportunity. If you are craving a mango, they will stop at a market to find you the perfect fruit. They are flexible and willing to create an itinerary that satisfies your particular desires.
The accommodations that Gerald selects are comfortable, elegant, and offer delicious food. They are always situated close to the day's activities and surrounded by beautiful scenery.
I highly recommend using Gerald and Adventure Afrika for your Ugandan adventure!

Adventure-Afrika created the perfect trip! 14 days We were a group of six, ages 25-68yrs and we all had the experience of our life. The lodgings were wonderful with fabulous views and great food. We traveled from Entebbe (2 Friends Hotel) to Jinja, a beautiful resort area where you can river raft, kayak, birdwatcher, cruise on Lake Victoria or just enjoy the wonderful view. Next Bwindi forest for Gorilla tracking with a wonderful hike, knowledgeable rangers and trackers (really a once in a lifetime experience. The on to Lake Bunyonyi boat cruise then Queen Elizabeth National Park. We saw hippos floating in the water, elephants feeding in a group and more. Another experience for everyone visiting Uganda is Chimpanzee trekking. After hiking for about 1 hr we were able to view for 1 hour a whole family of Chimpanzees. They didn’t seem to be fazed by us at all. And our final destination was Murchison National Park...Gerald the owner of Adventure-Afrika, opened our eyes to the most incredible safari. Elephants, Giraffes, Baboons, birds of all sorts, Leopard, Cobs (deer like animals), and of course lions. We found a mother lion with her cub getting ready to hunt for their dinner. I learned about the many not-for-profits Mr. Gerald Nuksi is involved including teaching Peace Corp Volunteers. If you are ready to soak in beauty, feel life, meet the people and learn how you can help while enjoying this magnificent country, then this company is for you.

I’m a current Peace Corps Volunteer in Uganda and used Adventure Afrika when my family came to visit. Gerald and his driver, Amanya, were simply the best! Extremely knowledgeable about the region, flexible, accommodating to our family of 5’s (many) needs, warm and friendly, and so so helpful. We all agreed that we felt like we were hanging out with friends the entire time, while still acknowledging Adventure Afrika’s professionalism. In addition, I feel great knowing that all proceeds benefit a 100% locally-run tour company. 10/10 recommend.

My family traveled to Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania with Adventure Afrika. We were accompanied by our tour guide Gerald and our driver Amenya. Both Gerald and Amenya were very knowledgeable and fun to be around; they made the car rides from destination to destination fly by! We went on a tour of the Rwandan Genocide Memorial, a personal bucket list event of mine, went gorilla tracking in the mountains of Uganda, and went on a safari in Tanzania's Serengeti. We also managed to squeeze in a day and a half in Uganda's gorgeous Lake Bunyoni. Adventure Afrika is very accommodating to what your interests are and will make sure that your trip is perfectly tailored to you! I cannot recommend Adventure Afrika enough.
