      We were picked up from the airport and debriefed about the trip before we started which made us feel well-prepared and informed.

      Mark and Joseph were excellent guides. They were very knowledgable, friendly and it was great to have them with us for the trip!

      For us this trip was really the trip of a lifetime- we ticked so many bucket list experiences off our list- walking with rhinos, trekking with the mountain gorillas and the chimpanzees, seeing hippos, crocodiles! We were amazed by the amount of animals we saw and it really couldn’t have been any better!

      The trip was well organised, accommodation was beautiful, food was great- they even catered for me being a fussy eater and my boyfriend who is vegan!

      If you’re looking for a unique and unforgettable experience, book your trip to Uganda! You certainly won’t be disappointed!

      Oh and bring plenty of sweets for the children, they will constantly ask for them so be prepared! We also loved visiting the Kichwamba Orphange- their smiles and laughter was amazing and really brightened up our Christmas

      Thanks again Inspire African Safaris for a fantastic experience in Uganda! We will remember this trip forever.
