We took an 8 day tour of Rwanda and Southwestern Uganda with Robert. The service was great and all the details were taken care of. It was relaxing and affordable and we had the flexibility to see what we wanted and to stop and experience what we saw along the way. Robert was great and it was like traveling with a friend, in fact we've remained friends even after our return to the US.

I was traveling in Uganda and Rwanda with a friend. We had problems with the first guide and driver (two persons) we hired back in Kampala. By the time we made it to Kabale, it was evident that we had no option but change them for a more professional service provider if we wanted to continue our travel without sacrificing what remained of our travel plans, mostly Rwanda. From the moment we stepped in Engagi's office (and very good restaurant) we were in the hands of probably the most professional tour operator I have come across during my extensive travels all around the world from SE Asia to Central America and many other places. First we booked a day hike with Engagi in the mountains surrounding Kabale and on Lake Bunyonyi with Engagi's local guide. The next morning we hit the road with Robert, Engagi's co-owner in a four wheel drive in excellent condition. The time we spent with Robert, who was our driver and guide in one person in Rwanda and Uganda during the following four days (three in Rwanda and one in Uganda) was just perfect. He took care of everything in the most professional manner, arranged accommodation on the way, took care of border procedures, shared his extensive knowledge on the history, ecology and culture of both countries and helped with whatever personal requests we had, no matter how improvised they may have been. I will remain grateful for him not only for saving our trip, but also for adding so much to it. I highly recommend Engagi for anyone planning travels in the region.

I was looking for a local tour company out of Kabale to take me on a customized tour of 3-4 days. Robert Basiima was so responsive with my inquiries and planning the trip. He arranged for an excellent birding guide (the other Robert) and both were such a joy to travel with. They have a genuine interest in conservation and were as excited as I was about wildlife and bird sightings. I felt very comfortable traveling with Robert and Robert and the accommodations were great. Robert was also very flexible with my plans and changes to itinerary. I highly recommend Engagi Safaris and look forward to a return visit with my family.

I had a wonderful time this September with Engagi Safaris. Robert was very accommodating and helped me to design my own ideal safari which was brilliant as I got to see everything I wanted to see in the very short amount of time I had free. The accommodation was lovely, especially the overnight in a forest camp for Chimpanzee trekking! Robert himself is a very knowledgeable guide and was able to answer all of my wildlife questions as well as provide interesting information about Uganda as we traveled around the beautiful countryside. Highly recommend visiting this wonderful country and using Engagi Safaris!!

Wow! What a trip! I found Robert and Engagi Safaris on Trip Advisor and I engaged Engagi on our 3 week trip to Uganda. This is our fifth trip to Africa and I planned an itinerary around the gorilla trek in Bwindi. Robert expertly put the whole trip together with lodges, game drives, waterfalls, gorillas and chimps Robert assigned probably one of the best guides we ever had in Amos. I swear he could spot an animal or bird from a mile away, and not stop until he found it for us. Really GREAT driver on some of the most challenging roads we have travelled in Africa, and we have been to Kenya, Tanzania, and all over South Africa and Namibia. He also was very aware of how we like to travel , and since it was just my wife and I he made sure we were not distracted or our trip compromised by other travelers. We are in our late sixties and he found one unique and beautiful lodge after another with great food, views, and the most friendly people. Robert visited us during our trip and we told him what a great guide and friend Amos had become. I am a photographer and he really knew his way around a game drive. We were actually the only ones who found both the tree climbing lions in Ishasha, but also found two lions relaxing under a tree (still don't know how he saw them) after a buffalo kill. Places we visited were: Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls, the Nile, Queen Elizabeth Park, Bwindi Park, Mburo Park, Kibale Park, Lake Bunyonyi, Sipi Falls, and more. Great lodges, food, the biggest crocs I have seen, game drives, boat rides, and probably the best guide we have had in Amos. Robert planned and executed our trip. If you plan a trip to the friendliest and safest country in Africa you must contact Robert and Amos at Engagi Safaris.
