James, our tour guide made this trip with his relentless enthusiasm and caring nature. Camping is tough but not impossible and it makes you really appreciate the hostel bed when you do finally get to them. Being driven to loads of amazing places was exactly what I wanted and got, the time in the bus went quickly despite having many buses appreciation
Most amazing adventure ever, beautiful country
This was my second adventure with Uganda Trek however it was my first time as a solo traveller. I was slightly nervous at first but luckily I had an amazing tour admin Jackie Musisi and a fantastic trek guide .I loved every place we visited, the scenery was amazing and the views were just breathtaking especially Lake Victoria. My favourite place was Lake Victoria Serena.
Best thing I ever did!
This was my first trip to Uganda and I chose it because it had abit of everything. I booked this trip over a year before it departed. Well worth the wait. I’d say to anyone thinking of doing this trip JUST DO IT!! Surrounded by great company, laughs, food, atmosphere etc. Some highlights for me were spending 4th July gorilla trekking, The grand Nile river its source in Jinja and Followed it all the way to Murchison Falls
