      The flying part of the trip was so interesting as it made everything faster, easier and fun in the luxurious jet. The wildlife encounters during the game drives in all the 3 countries was marvelous. Toured alone but my guide was never a bore for he made me forget that I didn't come with anybody. I also recommend this company to anybody planning a trip to East Africa because you will not be disappointed. Thank you Mr. Richard for well planning my trip and giving me the best experience in your home land Uganda and East Africa at large.
