    This was our second tour with Kampala City Trekkers. Great day visiting the bridge, source of the Nile, boat ride, relax at a resort, waterfall, local food etc. As before, Nassar was charming, full of info, and helpful. Great way to spend a day and say you’ve been to the source of the Nile!

    I only had one day to spare in Kampala and wanted to see as much of the countryside as possible. This tour delivered! It was definitely not a leisurely day, trainers and comfy clothes were a must, but that is exactly what I wanted. Anthony, my all-day tour guide, picked me up on time and was very helpful and knowledgeable. He pointed out lots of geography and local knowledge, assisted me in understanding when and how much to tip, when to be mindful of local custom, and I found him to be jovial and willing to adjust. For example, when I found myself too tired to make the last stop on the tour he graciously brought me back to Kampala, though as the only person on the tour that day I think this was easier than if I had been in a group. At several stops we had a site-specific tour guide whom we met on arrival (Alex at Ssezibwa Falls, Deo at Granite Falls/Mabira Forest and Onesmus at Jinja/Source of the Nile). Each was kind, full of information and questions led to interesting conversations. At Ssezibwa Falls and Granite Falls/Mabira Forest you are definitely going to traverse terrain that requires at least trainers, but could definitely benefit from hiking boots. I wore cropped hiking pants and there was one section in Mabira at the Falls where I had to be careful of biting ants on the ground level foliage - full length pants would have been better, but I managed and Deo was great to point out which plants to avoid touching. I had a lot of fun with Onesmus in Jinja as he boated me through the source of the Nile as well as fish and chips, Jinja style (deep fried whole tilapia and chips), strolled me through lots of history, monuments, the central marketplaces and even my first boda boda ride! He also owns a small clothing shop for men in Jinja and was a great help in directing me to some stylish kitenge for my sons back home. You do spend a good amount of time traveling from site to site by car, but the roads are never boring in Uganda and Anthony did well to point out features all the way - including the street food stop in Mukono where the Muchomo and Matoke were amazing. This tour gave me the most coverage for the time had, and definitely inspired me to return and spend a longer time in some places (Mabira Forest and Jinja for certain!).

    What an incredible day tour. Martha and Michael were a great team! It was a privilege to be taken to the spot where the Nile starts. We learnt so much and really enjoyed the boat ride and was amazed at the variety of wildlife. We stopped at a fascinating waterfall on the way too; everything was included.

    Lunch was a real highlight. We sat on the banks of the Nile and a truly EXCEPTIONAL lunch was provided. We chose freshly cooked whole Tilapia, straight from the Lake! We could have stayed there forever!

    Totally recommended.
    Martha has just started this company and you are helping a local Ugandan by choosing her and because she's new...I felt she worked harder than anyone else for our benefit.

    We had an amazing time with Claire on our safari to Murchison falls!

    We did a 3 days safari at Murchison falls, we enjoyed our stay and saw lots of animals. She was beyond accomodating and flexible to all our requests and is very knowledgeable about tourism in Uganda. Claire went above and beyond for us during our visit!

    Would love to travel again with you Claire next year.

    One of the best experiences I have ever had! I can say that the level of professionalism, hospitality, and courtesy exceeded my expectations!
    Great team and of course a beautiful country. If you ever decided to go there (and I highly recommend to do so) ask for Charity and George and they'll make sure you get the best Safari.

    One of the best experience ever, and not just the rafting but the hole package. Professional helpful guides, everything very pedagogical organized, breakfast, snacks in the boats, lunch after and the wonderful lodging in the night. Superb food and accommodation with a view over the Nile. Maria 54 and her son Karl 21 from Sweden

    I went on a solo trip with Augustine, my guide, and had a great time. Augustine was very chatty, accommodating and knowledgeable - making my trip easy, fun and educational. I also booked just the evening before departing so, the company was very flexible.
    We stayed in Hornbill Lodge which was the cheapest option. It was basic and comfortable, with lovely views. The hotelier-come-chef was great and knowing I wanted to try local food, made us 'rolex' for lunch and 'matoke' for breakfast as well as western food on other nights.
    We saw all of the animals bar the big cats, during 2 game drives and 1 boat trip. Personal highlights were seeing the many many warthogs and the hippos.

    There were several memorable highlights including chimpanzee tracking, gorilla tracking and boat trip on Kazinga Channel. My driver/guide George made a solo travel experience as an older woman feel friendly, safe and interesting every day. Manager Jackson organised this trip really well and there were no travel or accommodation setbacks.

    My time with Encounter was amazing. The safari and trekking if gorillas and chimpanzees could not have been a more perfect experience from the accomodation to the activities themselves. My driver, Martin was amazing and super helpful with all things I needed. Thank you so much.

    We had a fantastic time on our trip to Uganda. This travel company, as well as our guide, were very well-organized, professional, and accommodating to our family. I would highly recommend them!
    We were able to combine both cultural as well as animal safari activities in our trip. The cultural activities felt very authentic and off-the-beaten-track, but the highlights were definitely seeing the animals - lions, cheetah, wildebeest river crossings, elephants galore - a trip to remember!
    Our last hotel was very nice, Thank you Richard for the greatest memories.
