I did a tour with Rafiki Eco Safaris in Uganda and it was one of the best experiences in my lifetime. The whole team from Rafiki Eco Safaris was extremely professional and the selected itinerary was simply outstanding and magical.
We were able to see in just some days the best of the country and our dream of seeing gorillas for first time was fulfilled.
I can't recommend more doing a tour with Rafiki Eco-Safaris. They are very professional and they will really do their best to make your safari experience the best in your lifetime.
I can't wait to come back to Uganda and see more of this magical country with the help of such a professional company.
I joined a 11 days tour of Uganda organized by Rafiki Eco-Safaris - what an experience. Yakub, the owner, joined the trip together with Robinson, our driver and guide. The two of them know Uganda in and out, they knew all the best spots, hotels, and local fixers to help us get through Uganda in the smoothest possible way. We started our trip in Kampala, and drove directly to Fort Portal, where we hike to some crater lakes, and to a cave area. In the evening, we performed a night walk around a lake looking for bush babies. The next day, we woke up early to do a chimpanzee trek in the Kibale NP, my personal highlight of the trip. After that, we drove down to Kasese, and stayed three days around the Queen Elizabeth NP, where we had some really close encounters with lions, did one of the best boat rides I had in the whole of Africa, and visited the beautiful volcanic craters of the park. After Queen Elizabeth, we got to Bwindi NP, where we had the second highlight of the trip, gorilla trekking. Yakub organized a stay at the clinic for gorillas, and visits to local Batwa (pygmeys) tribes and coffee plantations. Finally, we stayed at Lake Bunyoniy, in an amazing lodge, and after that a visit to Lake Mburo NP, where we could do an exciting game walk with giraffes. Yakub and Robinson were kind enough to change our plan last minute and help us cross to Rwanda rather than going back to Kampala. They drove us to the border, helped us get a covid test to cross, and made sure we would reach Kigali safely. All in all, one of the most professional tour operators I've met in the whole of Africa, highly recommended.
