Great itinerary

Views: 123 Visited: Jan 2018 Reviewed: Jul 30, 2018

Africa Adventure Vacations worked with my non-profit group to bring a delegation to Rwanda and Uganda. Their personal attention and emphasis on the details of the trip was quite simply amazing and allowed us to truly enjoy the journey without worrying about anything. Moreover, Edison is extremely knowledgeable about local flora and fauna, especially birds. I really felt we had a “behind the scenes” look into the places we visited—which is hard... read more

Best safari ever with Africa Adventure Vacations

Views: 113 Visited: Jul 2018 Reviewed: Jul 29, 2018

Thanks to Africa Adventure Vacations, my trip to Uganda and Rwanda was rich in experiences I’ll never forget. Edison traveled with us by van through incredible landscapes, making sure that we spotted each monkey and glittering bird along the way. She answered all of our questions, explaining social etiquette, politics, how honey is harvested or what games kids played in the towns we visited. He led the tour like a wildlife expert and also care... read more

Incredible adventure

Having traveled in Africa for years, I have had the opportunity to work with many tour operators, but none compared to the personal care and attention I received with Africa Adventure Vacations. Not only did Edison created an itinerary that ideally matched my wishes, having customized a trip to suit my schedule, budget and areas of interest. He ensured that my trip was safe, well-organized and most importantly FUN!!!! Our guide Samuel exposed ... read more

Amazing tour and very many animals!!!

Views: 123 Visited: Jul 2018 Reviewed: Jul 15, 2018

It was such a nice moment to discover Congo and Uganda. I had visited several national parks including Murchison and Virunga parks. My guide driver was the best, he spotted most of the animals and birds spices. he was knowledgeable regarding fauna and flora. He also gave us extra activities that were not even in the itinerary. I recommended my family to book Samuel again as their guide when they choose to visit Uganda for gorilla trucking.

Best Tour Operator

I had a vacation in Uganda with Africa Adventure Vacations for 19 days. I explored most of the unique destinations right from unique African culture to the wildlife safaris. Our guide Samuel was so friendly and helpful. He had comprehensive knowledge of the Karamojong and birds.
The tour consultants also responded to all our queries and also advised us accordingly. It was value for money!

Epic African adventure safari

I had an amazing trip with my family with African Adventure Vacations. Service was very perfect right from the tour consultant to our friendly guide Samuel. I liked all the lodges with slept in however, Parkview safari lodge was more outstanding. They gave a surprise birthday cake to my husband.
We saw most of the animals as promised in our itinerary. I will definitely come back to visit other destinations in Uganda. read more

Wonderful prompt exceptional services

Africa Adventure Vacations is amazing. Their attention to detail, time taken to consult with me on my likes/dislikes, what I'm looking for in the African experience is exemplary. They had to bear with my numerous changes, questions, clarifications.....at all times they were there to offer advice, clarity and guidance. Joel is a very patient man. Every sector was arranged with such care and thought that I for the first time didn't have to think... read more

Exceptional!

I had an excellent experience with Africa Adventure Vacations to plan our trip to Uganda. I had already done quite a bit of research and had a good idea where I wanted to go, and Joel was recommended to me by one of the lodges I wanted to stay at during the trip.

Joel was very responsive to my email inquiries and put together a detailed itinerary for us, beginning in Entebbe and ending in Kigali, Rwanda. We were met at the airport for our ... read more

Africa Adventure Vacations you really delivered on all counts……great food everywhere….lot’s of good wine….. a superb level of service from each establishment and person….a trip that was truly memorable. I travel 150+ nights per year and am not usually engaged with hotels, restaurants and those types of services…they all tend to run together. However, to a place the establishments we were exposed to really stood out! The 8 days magical gorill... read more

Fantastic services

Views: 55 Visited: Dec 2017 Reviewed: Apr 03, 2018

We first contacted Joel about 4 weeks before we left for our trip (just before Christmas). We thought this might be a bit last minute but it proved no issue. We had a simple brief in that we wanted the best possible experience but knew nothing about Uganda or safaris. From the moment we landed all was taken care of. We had no need to contact Joel at any point and felt comfortable and looked after throughout the trip (we have travelled a lot bu... read more

My family of six, including two small boys ages 4 and 6, went with my in laws on this trip. When I was booking, I spoke to the representative on whats app and he was there anytime I had a question. As soon as I arrived in Uganda from Toronto, their representative Joel messaged me to confirm pick up and time. We took a carry on and small backpacks for the trip.

Spectacular views and sights

You made this the most spectacular Africa adventure vacation Mike and I have ever experienced! When one compares life to a book in which travel turns the pages, this outing knocked off a few major chapters. Think of it, old people being completely awed like small children, humbling and uplifting! My mind's eye has thousands of new snapshots and feelings to go with them. We enjoyed every minute I was in Uganda with my husband. Am looking forwar... read more

Ultimate adventures

In 1998, my husband Ben and I went on our first safari to Africa, a custom safari for two organized by a large well-known operator but Africa Adventure Vacations is incomparable.

I had indicated my interest in wildlife photography and we were fortunate to have Robert as our guide for the entire trip. After visiting a number of other camps and African countries, our experience with Africa Adventure Vacation stood out as truly special becaus... read more

Wonderful memorable Africa Adventure Vacations

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that we are safely home and the trip was WONDERFUL from start to finish. Africa Adventure Vactions planned it perfectly for us and we enjoyed every minute. But to give you an example, they started calling us the "lucky Swiss" - we saw all the big five at 4 different camps, a rhino from about 10 yards, two lion prides feasting on fresh kills, 3 lion cubs of only a month old (even our guide ... read more

Unforgettable African experience

Views: 93 Visited: Jan 2018 Reviewed: Mar 21, 2018

I had a trip with Africa Adventure Vacations. It was 8 days of magical experiences in the wilderness. The tour consultant was helpful and responded to every question. Our guide, Isaacs, was friendly and amazing. He had knowledge of the destination. He spotted different animals and birds in most of the national park where we had our safari from. The accommodation was good with fresh food.
Thanks guys so much for such a lovely trip. read more
