I found Inspire African Safaris on Trip Advisor as the number 1 in Uganda. So I reached out and contacted them to try and organise a custom private tour of... read more
Upon arriving in Uganda from the UK we were met at the airport by Richard himself and driver Alex. We had 6 days with them both in Uganda. Both were fantastic the whole time. We had some very long drives, often on very bumpy dirt roads. Alex was great, driving on those roads were not easy. The accommodation Richard had organised for us were great. They were all ‘mid range” lodges but were all very nice and comfortable and offered full board- some definitely seemed higher than mid range. As we were there in the low season, a lot of the lodges we stayed in were very empty. On multiple occasions we were the only guests there!
Richard even made sure he left us with Alex a couple of days early, so to ensure he could get to the Masai Mara on time to meet our flight, as the route and roads were so bad due to the rains.
Just to talk briefly about the activities we did
We did 2 gorilla treks, one day after the other. The first one was in Ruhija and there was a total of 6 guests. The next day we did one in Nkurungo section, where the two of us were the only guest. So we basically had a private tour!! All the activities we did were amazing. We saw so much in Uganda in our short time. When it was time to go to our Kenyan part of the tour, Alex guided and drove us across the border to Rwanda and we had time to explore Kigali before heading to the airport and to say bye to Alex. We then had an independent flight and hotel in Nairobi before catching our flight from Wilson airport to the airstrip in the Masai Mara where we were met as soon as we landed by Richard and his Masai driver Cole. We had 3 days in the Mara where we explored all corners of it with our two experts. Their knowledge of animals and also for spotting was great too. As it was the low season there seemed to be less animals around but we managed to see everything we wanted (apart from a Rhino).
When our time was up we flew back to Nairobi with Richard before saying our goodbyes and heading to JKIA for our flight back to London.
Overall I can’t recommend Inspire African Safaris enough! 100% 5 stars. Anyone who is thinking of travelling to Uganda and is looking for a trustworthy company, who will look after you and do everything you ask. This is the company. We felt at ease with Richard and Alex, they were both fantastic! There’s a reason they are number 1!!
