Warning against a safari guide & Company.
With this notice we (a group of 6 persons from Denmark) would like to warn the local tourist business and other travellers planning trips to Uganda against using a guide with whom we bought a 3 weeks' safari in January 2014.
His name is Evarist Ngabirano, running the one person company Nkuringo Gorilla Safaris (www.nkuringo-gorilla-safaris.com ).
We transferred him the total cost of our agreed trip about 2 months before departure. Shortly after this he claimed to be a victim of a motor cycle accident in Kampala loosing a significant amount of US dollars from our payment. With the help of good local contacts we obtained evidence that this was a false story, which he later admitted to us in a mail. In order not to loose the rest of the transferred money we completed the trip with him, but needed to pay several costs once more. After the trip we confronted him with our evidence of the fake accident and gave him a month to pay back. So far without result. He denies having any money left.
So if you plan a trip with him - you should never pay him in advance. Actually, he should be banned, as he is damaging the credibility of the safari business in Uganda.
