The people are very friendly, the wildlife was amazing. A lot more than I had expected. I really enjoyed the trip and would definitely like to revisit Uganda.

"10 day safari"

The people at all of the different lodges were very nice and polite and made the stay a pleasure. I got to see a great variety of wild life and also a lot of the country traveling from park to park by car. It was a fantastic trip and I am hoping to go back soon.

I was shopping for a last minute trip to Africa, with less than two weeks notice. I didn't have time to do a lot of research, or join another group, so I started emailing companies I found online about options. Home to Africa was quick to respond, and willing to organize a trip for me, solo, on the dates I could travel. They sent several itinerary options for me to consider and kept in close contact to answer questions until it was settled.

There were a few issues with details, which I gave feedback for them to improve (like knowing how to wire money so that we don't all get hit with big fees; being clear about how much drive time was expected each day and offering stops; knowing if there was periodic wifi service available; providing a beverage as part of the meal; and being explicit about who tips at each stop on my behalf- little details that show top notch professional service).

Overall, my itinerary was a very good tour of the country. I could tell they had planned it to be as comfortable as possible for me (although this meant eating and staying at some places I would not have picked because they were situated and oriented only to tourists). Because my itinerary was designed to see highlights that were far apart, I had looong days in the car, so that is something to consider for your trip. The roads are not always in good shape, so it can be slow going, but I did also see a lot of interesting things out the window!

My guide Paul was an excellent driver, he was very professional and knowledgeable about what we were seeing. We saw all the wildlife I expected, I was able to talk with him about Uganda's history and politics, about conservation issues and natural history of the animals.... it is no small thing to be traveling with someone every day, all day, for 12 days and have a good experience. I had seen similar reviews of Paul and concur he is a pro!

I am happy to answer questions about this company, I recommend both their services and Uganda as a destination- this was my first trip to Africa. I never felt unsafe, and was able to have a very comprehensive experience of culture, landscape, and 'safari animals' in a 12 day tour.

Edward, Elias, and Paul were exceptionally helpful, both before and during the tour. We did a three-day safari, and our driver, Paul, was knowledgeable about the wildlife and did a good job of preparing us with information before each stage of the tour. With over a decade of leading tours, Paul's experience showed. Edward was responsive and helpful in setting up the tour, answering emails promptly and organizing a trip to a school in Jinja to provide humanitarian service. Elias was present before and after the tour, to make sure our questions were answered to our satisfaction.

Some tour companies make you feel like they only want your money. Home to Africa Tours and Travel make you feel like they want you to come back.

Home to Africa Tours and Travel is a first class safari and travel tour operation company! From the moment I sent my first email inquiring about their services to the last drop off to Entebbe International Airport, everything they did exceeded my expectations. The organization and communication were always efficient and top notch; including answering my questions in a timely manner, providing sufficient details to the days' itineraries and meeting safari schedules. Our guide, Paul, was friendly, knowledgeable and fun to be around. The accommodations, food and transportation were also fantastic! The best thing about Home to Africa Tours and Travel company is that it gives back to the community of Uganda by giving a portion of its safari fees to help a school in Buwenge, Jinge. It is not just a company providing great tours of Uganda, it is a company looking out for the future of Ugandan children. (One of the favourite parts of our holiday was spending a day with the school's administrators and children, in addition to bringing donated school supplies for them.) Thank you Home to Africa Tours and Travel for making our Ugandan memories so special!

Our first trip to Uganda was great. Home to Africa Tours and Travel looked after us well. We were very lucky to see the tree climbing lions in Ishasha, had great sightings of the Gorillas up close. By chance ended up in a Chimp trek instead of a nature walk. That was fantastic, would have been very disappointed to have missed it and learnt it was an option to do instead of a nature walk, definitely clients should be advised of this option. The travel company cannot be blamed for the state of the roads in parts of the Queen Elizabeth National Park, but it would have good to advise clients of it in advance, plus the lengthy duration of travel between each place on the itinerary. I myself requested most of the lodges, but didn't realise per example there was an hours drive from Park View Safari Lodge to where we would be doing the safari. That would have influenced my decision on where to stay. In saying that Park View was a fantastic lodge.
