A great 5-day experience with Prime Safaris
May 2021
Prime Safaris did a great job with organizing our trip, permits, accommodation and food. They made the trip effortless and smooth.

I want to give our guide, Peter, a shout out! He was really the highlight of the trip. Peter was knowledgeable and so passionate about Uganda and the animals. He shared all sorts of stories and folklore about Uganda, their lakes, forests and mountains. Truly a pleasure! Everyone needs to ask for Peter when they're booking with Prime Safaris.

that one trip you can't stop talking about!
May 2021
Being from Africa, I’ve never believed that I would ever go on a five day fully guided safari to see wildlife. Initially, this trip was primarily to see Gorillas and Chimpanzees. However, to my surprise, Uganda has so much more to offer, and I had one of the best experiences of my life. Prime Safaris & Tours put on a great show, one that I will never forget and one that I will live to tell my friends and friends of friends. From what I’ve seen, they are very good at communicating everything in detail before the trip, and from the moment our Tour guide - Peter picked us up from the airport hotel, till the time that we bid farewell, he was nothing but kind helpful and polite. But what stood out was his passion for what he does and his knowledge of everything related to Uganda, not just the safaris. I highly recommend Prime Safaris & Tours and Peter as the best guide when visiting Uganda.

An unforgettable Uganda experience thanks to Prime and largely due to our very kind, very knowledgeable and all-round fun guide: Peter. I recommend Uganda as a country to experience an untouched, well-preserved nature and Prime as one of the best tour operators in East Africa.

Prime Safaris are the Ugandan Safari Dream Team!
May 2021 • Friends
What an unbelievable adventure in to the wilds of a truly stunning country. The attention to detail, from the multiple email exchanges prior to the trip, to the support offered to us throughout our time in-country, really made us feel cared for.

The purpose of the trip initially was to see the gorillas but it quickly became apparent that there was so much more to see and do. The itinerary was so well-planned and because of our guide’s local knowledge and contacts he was able to make slight tweaks to ensure we had the most smooth experience.

Highlights for me (besides the obvious gorilla trek!) were the evening game drives, the boat cruise along the Kazinga Channel, the hospitality of the Ugandan people in general and Peter (our guide) in particular.

On a trip where a lot of what we saw might be offered by other operators, there was no doubt in my mind that we landed a top rate professional and person in our guide, Peter. He really made the trip special for all of us and was very well supported by his organisation’s management. I give Prime Safaris my highest possible recommendation.

The trip of a lifetime
Where to start. I guess by first giving Cate a shout-out - we exchanged about 50 emails before the trip and she was so helpful, accommodating and answered all of our questions and concerns. It was definitely reassuring to have someone like Cate prepare everything for us before our arrival to Entebbe.

We had initially chosen to go to Uganda for the gorillas, and then decided to make a whole week out of it and go on the 5 day safari, with luxury accommodation. While our main goal was to see the gorillas, we were amazed by all the sights and experiences throughout our tour - it completely exceeded our expectations. Uganda is such a beautiful country and definitely deserves several days of exploring, I wish we had more time there.

Our tour would not have been what it was if it weren't for our tour guide Peter. He showed such passion for his country and culture, sharing with us fascinating stories about Uganda and its people. He made sure we absolutely maximized every single day of our safari, and really wanted us to have the best experience possible. He really went over and above to make sure we had an amazing time and had everything that we needed throughout the trip.

I would highly recommend Prime Safari Uganda to anyone planning to visit this beautiful country.

Simply the BEST guides! Amazing trip!! Life changing!
Jan. 2020
Wow, wow, wow!!! I don't even know where to start. This trip, with Prime Safaris, was amazing!
First off, the company itself:
When booking these types of tours from the US, most will ask that you wire transfer the money or pay the credit card service fee. I got super nervous on this part. After spending 5 days with this company- I now can safely tell people, don't worry! They are a very reputable company.
Level of service: Our driver, Gaylord, was great! He picked us up right from the airport, had a sign with our name, and took care of us the entire trip. He was educated, spoke English well, was funny and was there to help us with whatever we needed.
Vehicle: We had an older van type of car but we ended up loving it! The back seat was spacious and I even was able to jump in the third row seat and lay down for a bit if I wanted to. The top lifted off for us to see all of the great animals while driving. Our driver cleaned it every night for us and made sure we had fresh bottled water each day.
Animals: HOLY SMOKES... we went in January and we saw so many animals. We did the safari portion, the chimps and the gorillas and all were amazing. I would do the exact same trip again anytime!
Tipping: Don't forget to tip about $20-$25 (more if you want) per day per person. We gave him the tip at the very end and gave him US dollars. We made sure before leaving the US the bills were newer as they don't accept older bills.

Jerome Made the Safari Great
Jerome picked us on-time and supplied more than enough water for the entire trip. Our first stop was the Pumba Cottages, which was an excellent selection. Jerome was an excellent game spotter, competent and safe driver, and very knowledgeable about wildlife and local history. The entire trip was a pleasure and I highly recommend both Prime and Jerome.
The road to get us to the gorilla trek was more than challenging and Jerome was always in good command of his vehicle. He was more than accommodating with our requests for bathroom stops. We were dropped off at the airport in Kigali and in that final day he went above and beyond what we were expecting.

If I had one suggestion it would be to ask for one of their vehicles with some handles or a rack to hold on while standing for game viewing to ensure maximum comfort. In the end it did not interfere with our enjoyment, but it is something to consider.

All the lodges and restaurant stops where great and everything was well organized. Jerome was always on time and there when you needed him.

Thank you, Jerome, we will miss your smiling face in the morning.

Excellent experience with our driver, Jerome
This was my fourth trip to Africa, but first trip to Uganda. Using Prime Safari for our trip proved to be an excellent decision. Jerome, our guide, was knowledgeable, courteous, helpful, and a pleasure throughout the safari. The three lodges we visited (all recommendations from Prime) all exceed our expectations.

We visited the top attractions (gorillas and Queen Elizabeth National Park), but also some smaller, but beautiful areas of Uganda. It was a nice slice of Uganda - a beautiful country with warm, welcoming people.

My only regret is that we did not stay longer.
