Vacations Uganda & Rwanda

Written on: November 23, 2014   |   I visited in June 2014 We haven't the time to post all the wonderful details of our past vacations with Katona Tours and Travel for the past four years we have visited Uganda and Rwanda. Each year our whole experience has been thoughtfully & professionally arranged by the same Company Katona tours.
Jackie at Kampala office is professional from the time we book the Tours all the way through. It is never a problem when we change Itineraries or ask questions. We cannot recommend this company enough. We will be going back next year in late June as usual and this time we will concentrate on Uganda sleeping in high end lodges including Chobe safari lodge, Kyaninga lodge, Mweya safari lodge, Mount clouds lodge and Mihingo safari lodge.

This is an amazing safari company that has offered a lot to us. We booked a five-day tour to see gorillas in Bwindi forest, a wild life safari in Queen Elizabeth park and chimpanzees in Kyambura Lodge.

Being students and solo travelers, we spent five nights at Africa treasure home after the tour, a bed and breakfast facility located in Bukoto and operated by Ja... read more

Katona tours, Jackie in particular, has helped me to secure 17 gorilla passes for Volcano park in Rwanda. He has also sent scanned copies of these permits to me. My group members enjoy the trek exercise. This company is excellent and highly recommended. read more

We highly recommend the excellent services of Katona tours. Tara and I ended up organizing transportation in a land cruiser and a safari guide with them. Initially we booked 10 days tour in Uganda with another agency that was pricey so we let them reserve our lodges and permits only. The rest was organised by Katona and we managed to save 424 US$ altogether.

I selected Katona mainly for their responsiveness and flexibility to my interest and budget
Jackie Najjuka the Managing director offered me lots of options of tour packages from which I picked a day gorilla tour.
As a single and solo traveler, I joined another group of trekkers that were booked into ones of the toughest gorilla groups. It took us 5 hours to find... read more

We took a 7 day Gorilla Trek/Chimpanzee Trek/Safari provided by Katona Tours in May 2014. We were extremely satisfied with the great job done by Katona in planning and conducting our trip. Our trip included Bwindi, Queen Elisabeth NP, Kibale NP, and Murchison Falls NP.
Katona (Jackie in particular) was extremely helpful and responsive to all of our questions. We w... read more

We would book with Katona Tours again in a heartbeat. Obtaining permits for gorilla trekking in August is difficult in a normal year. However, on June 1st 2012 the price of permits was increased by $250 per person, so there was tremendous demand. While we were told by several reputable companies in the U.S. that permits were sold out, Jackie, the office manager, at... read more

I will recommend Katona without hesitation. The three of us were afraid that the seven-day gorilla safari would not live up to our expectation hence the hesitancy in wiring the 30% deposit fee for gorilla permits, but in the end we are glad we chose to travel with Katona tours.

We enjoyed the entire tour tremendously, both Jacquelyn and Alex the guide were outst... read more
