    "If you want a custom tour that fits all your needs, look no further! I did an extended version of the 7-day trip and it was awesome! I saw Chimps in Kalinzu, Gorilla's in Bwindi, Shoebills in Mabamba and a LOT of other animals. The communication before my depature to Uganda with Richard was very good. I was able to ask all my questions. The service during the trip was excellent. Richard and his staff really do everything to make their client feel comfortable and happy. Nothing is too much for them. Thanks Richard, Ashadu and Tony!"

    "To travel with Karumuna turned from traveling with a tour operator to traveling with friends. We had a wonderful trip. Professionally organised, earlyer than punctual, reliable, friendly, ready to customise to the clients wishes or help in any problem that occurs during the trip... one of the budget friendliest operators i could find. Attentive to the beauty of nature and animals even during transfers, not only on the specific game drives. Very safe driving. Good choice of lodge. Perfect trip! Wonderful experience! Thank you Richard and Moses!"

    "Karumuna Safaris well exceeded our expectations. They were extremely flexible and friendly. They picked us up from our place we were staying in the morning. They had food and water for us during the whole trip and stopped whenever we needed to. It was a very affordable trip, especially considering it was just our group of three. We found that Karumuna was the cheapest available, and in comparison with the other companies that were at Murchison, Karumuna was the best in quality. We were able to adjust our schedule on the trip and add an extra game drive with ease. "

    "I would highly recommend Karumuna for anyone. It was an extremely positive experience and I will definitely use them in the future as I further travel to and experience the beauty of Uganda."

    "Karumuna Safaris is the best tour operator here in Uganda. A few weeks back we traveled to Bwindi impenetrable with Richard to explore the beauty that is Uganda. Richard is the proprietor of this company and yes sometimes he can be a guide. I am proud I was born in the pearl of Africa, Uganda. We experienced a lot of beautiful sceneries, saw several animals like gorillas, baboons, chimps lions and several others(lions here being my best) . We had immense fun. We later moved on to kidepo np where we camped. It was a beautiful experience I will never forget. For a person who has grown up in this country it was such an amazing experience and I really did not expect it. I am glad I traveled with karumuna Safaris. I do recommend them."

    "My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience with Karumuna Safaris. We went to Queen Elizabeth and Bwindi and ended the tour with a night a Lake Bunyonyi. Richard was extremely helpful in arranging the tour to exactly what we wanted to do and helped work within our budget. Our driver Moses was great during the trip and spotted lots of animals in Queen Elizabeth that we would have otherwise missed! I would absolutely recommend using Karumuna Safaris for all of your tour needs in Uganda."

    "My daughter and I took the 14 day discover Uganda trip and what an amazing experience it was. I did have a few initial concerns about booking and sending large sums of money to an unknown company in Uganda. I needn't have worried. Richard was extremely professional in all aspects, answering my emails straight away, confirming receipt of the funds immediately and generally reassuring me that everything was in hand. Richard works very hard to ensure everything goes to plan. He had changed some of our accommodation prior to our arrival as he had had some bad reports about the lodges where we were initially supposed to stay. The trip itself could not have gone better. Richard met us at the airport and transferred us to our guest house where our guide for the trip met us the next day. Ashadu was the perfect companion, extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and Uganda in general. Most importantly we felt completely safe and well looked after throughout the trip which was a perfect mix of wildlife, culture and relaxation. Ashadu was a very competent driver, important as we spent many hours driving over very rough roads. The accommodation exceeded our expectations. Uganda is a beautiful diverse country with relatively few tourists. Ashadu went out of his way to ensure we saw as much wildlife as possible. Particular favourites were the elephants seen from the boat trip in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and of course the chimps and gorillas which we genuinely felt privileged to see. Thank you Richard and Ashadu for giving us such a wonderful unforgettable trip."

    "We hade a great experience with Karumuna safaris. The trip lasted for 7 days, starting in Kampala. Everything was very well organized. We payed everything in advanced and certainly got what we payed for when we arrived. Our guide was very friendly and made us feel safe the whole journey. He drove us everywhere and attended in all of the activities. We can really recommend Karumuna Safaris."

    "Surprisingly, we had a personal guide. We upgrade our accom at a minor upchsrge. The time spent with them was phenomenal. I'd highly recommend using them. Only criticism is that when we where on the way to Murchison falls we where on what I considered to be a public transport. Other than that extraordinary. Do it."

    "We were seven persons company travelling with Karumuna Safaris and it will remain as unforgettable experience during Christmas time in Uganda. We travelled from Kampala to Kibale than Qeen Elizabeth (Kazinga chanel with great hippos as well) Bwindi Impenetrable forest with amazing gorillas, lake Bunyonyi and lake Mburo National park. Mr Richard Kisembo head and owner Karumuna safari was very interested in organisation and managing our safari. Moses, our guide and driver worked good and was an excellent assistent. Many thanks to rangers in Kibale, Bwindi and Mburo for competence and assistance. Gorilla tracking was something absoluttely wow! We tracked Rushaga, Kahungye gruop and Big Papa (silverback) was in very good mood. We were too."

    "Hope it wasn't my last Uganda trip. Many thanks and I feel absolutely free to advise Karumuna for other travellers. Good service and fine prices."

    "If you are thinking about travelling to Africa, most especially Uganda, Karumuna Safaris is the right way to go. Not only is Richard (Karumuna Safaris) a friendly man but a very trustworthy one at that. We booked and travelled with him in November for a 3 day Kibale Chimps trekking tour and we still talk about the experience right now. While we were in Uganda, he took care of each and every need of ours and he is a person i would gladly book with again. We saw chimps, birds, baboons and had a crater lake experience like no other. He has a vast knowledge about the parks and animals, has good connections with park rangers and hotels. Beautiful communication, beautiful country, beautiful people. This trip exceeded my expectations. Thank you Richard, thank you Karumuna safaris for the best holiday me and mybfriends have ever had."

    "It was on Sunday the 18th of December 2016 when my trip, the adventure of my life started . I had been to many African countries even Uganda its self, but it looked like I was here for the first time. You actually do not know anything about Uganda until you travel with Karumuna Safaris because you get a true definition of a safari in Uganda "the pearl of Africa"."

    "I nearly saw every wild animals like Chimpanzees, Gorillas, Giraffes, Monkeys, Lions, Zebras, Antelopes, Uganda Kobs, Elephants, Hippos. "

    "When it came to culture its like you are visiting more than one country at once because there are over thirty tribes and each of them has a different culture which u get to experience only with Karumuna Safaris, the people are amazing perhaps the most friendly and social people i have met so far."

    "Karumuna Safaris took care of me well for they new what i needed even before i asked, there services are immense i would say from the time i arrived in Uganda every thing was on point."

    "I will say the two weeks trip with Karumuna Safaris in Uganda will always stand out as my most exciting most, audacious and hipped time of my life."

    "So I highly recommend any one who wants to visit Africa, to visit Uganda do it with Karumuna Safaris."

    "It was so easy to plan our safari with Richard, the owner of Karumuna Safaris. He answered all of my questions (and there were many) in a timely manner. The whole safari was planned by exchanging numerous emails. You are in good hands with this company both pre-safari and once you are in Uganda. He arranged everything in an efficient manner, and was always very punctual. He works hard to make sure his travelers are happy. Plus, he is just a really nice person, from whom you will gain a lot of insight into life in Uganda. Uganda is a beautiful country that offers so many varied experiences, from horse back riding along the Nile, hiking, and of course, many national parks. It was an experience of a lifetime to see the gorillas and chimps. At our request Richard even contacted a guide when we decided at the last minute that we wanted to spend more time chimp trekking. Do not hesitate to book with Karumuna, an honest and very reliable company. Highly recommended!"

    "We booked a customized itinerary based on the 7-day Gorillas and Savannah Safari. Richard Kisembo was a joy to deal with electronically in the months leading up to our trip, and he was equally enthusiastic when we finally met in person in Kampala. I was surprised to find out that Richard would not be joining us for our trip. Instead he introduced us to our guide Ahmed, who became our friend as much as our guide over the course of our trip. "

    "I do think that our being young (both under 30) and adaptable budget travelers made this arrangement work out as well as it did. The trip was not luxurious, but it was perfect for us."

Our guide went above and beyond to make sure we saw as many animals as possible on the tour as well as had a comfortable journey. Plus, and importantly, the financial cost is affordable. If ever I'm able to travel to Uganda again, I will look no further than Richard and his team at Karumuna to arrange another excellent experience!"

    "Experience of a lifetime. Karumuna Safaris (Richard Kisembo) arranged everything perfectly and our guide Ashadu was great. He knew litterally all the roads in Uganda including the paths in the Nat.Parks, he knows all the wildlife and birds, he has a good network with the guides from other touroperators, including the more expensive international touropertators (which are mainly more expensive because of the international middleman) whom stay in touch to keep each other informed what can be seen where. Our guide, Ashadu, was also very flexible, very friendly and trustworthy (very important)."

    "To be honest we were a bit reluctant at first to book directly with a touroperator from Uganda, cutting out the expensive middleman, because of 'the big unknown' for us. But Karumuna Safaris, Richard Kisembo and our guide Ashadu came through and delivered in a big way. "

    "So if you are planning to go on safari in Uganda I can definitely recommend Karumuna Safaris. If you want to see the real Africa, meet friendly people, see the Big 5 and have the privilege to see chimpanzees and gorillas, go! Go to Uganda! Go with Karumuna Safaris. They are also cheaper than the (more) international touroperators and the money stays where it should, in Uganda instead of the pockets of middlemen."

    "Karumuna Safaris, Richard and Ashadu we (me and Jeannette) would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything. We will never forget and we hope you get all the business you deserve."

    "Wat een ervaringen en wat een fantastische gids was Ashaduh. Hij kende echt alle wegen, alle dieren en vogels, had een grote netwerk (ook onder de gidsen van de internationale touroperators die elkaar ook bellen op safaris als er ergens iets spectaculairs te zien is), was heel flexibel en nog belangrijker heel vriendelijk en betrouwbaar. "

    "Wij moeten eerlijk zeggen, we waren vooraf wel een beetje sceptisch met het inhuren van een lokale Oegandees touroperator (buiten de grote Nld touroperators om) i.v.m. het grote onbekende. Maar Karumuna Safaris en Richard Kisembo had het fantastisch geregeld. Wij kunnen iedereen alleen maar aanraden naar Oeganda te gaan om de echte Afrika te zien, zeer vriendelijke mensen te ontmoeten, en niet alleen de Big 5 etc zien maar ook Chimpansees en Berggorillas. Wat een bevoorrechte levenservaring was zowel de Chimpansee- als de Berggorillatracking."

    "En als je naar Oeganda gaat neem contact op met Karumuna Safaris ipv Foxreizen o.i.d. Stuk goedkoper, perfect geregeld en het geld gaat naar Oeganda waar het thuishoort ipv naar de Nld tussenpersoon. Bedankt Richard Kisembo en Ssekandi Ashaduh."

    "We used Safari Bookings when we searched for tour operators with office in Uganda and who had budget tours. We contacted 40-50 of them and Karumuna Safaris gave us the best offer. The company had some good reviews and a good web page but you never knew how reliable the companies are on Safari Bookings."

    "We were however very lucky and got a fantastic 7-days safari with a good guide/driver, Ashadu, who spoke perfect English."

    "We also got to know Richard Kisembo, the owner of Karumuna Safaris, who is really nice. Richard did many extra things for us which we appreciated very much. They were not included in our itinerary. He, and his family, invited us to a dance show before the safari. He transferred us between two hotels in Kampala free of charge. He came to our hotel after the safari and wondered how it had been and then he also gave us two t-shirts. He drove us from Kampala to a hotel in Entebbe. We only had to pay for the petrol. It was good to know that he care for his customers not only during the safaris. I am sure that he would have helped us if something would have happened to us in Kampala."

    "We really recommend Karumuna Safaris. They have three safari cars beside at least an ordinary car used for transferring customers between hotels and to/from the airport. They have around 10 guides. Almost all guides in Uganda are so called ”free lancers”. They prefer to get paid when they are contracted since they don’t get much if they get paid monthly. Richard informed us that Karumuna Safaris will most likely be a member of Association of Uganda Tour Operators ( AUTO ) during 2016. It cost 100.000 Ush and it has a yearly fee of 300 USD if I remember correct."

    "We would of course use Karumuna Safaris again if we return. I better say when we return since Uganda is a very lovely country."

    "We had a very busy itinerary going the length of the country. Karumuna did a great job getting us to all of our destinations. As everyone kept telling us, you're travelling on 'African roads' so you will often encounter dust or muddy tracks - Karumuna handled these very well. The safari was great and the chimp and gorilla tracking are experiences of a lifetime. Many thanks to Richard for a wonderful tour and great memories."

    "`My friend and me decided last minute to do a Safari to Kidepo valley NP starting from Kampala. The Karumuna team did a great job in managing all the bookings and organisation though it was high season and we started two days later. The hotels were quite nice, though we booked budget-they were classier than expected. Richard and Isaac gave us a wonderful time, they are so friendly and funny and very experienced- they managed to show us so many different aspects of this stunning nature. They really want to show their guests all the beauty of Uganda!"

    "Thank you Karumuna safaris for visiting Rweteera Safari Park. We are pleased to inform you that your guests had fabulous moments at our tented lodge especially the crater lakes hike and left with fond memories. You now need to visit for 2 more nights to qualify for one free night full board for your 2 guests. Thank you for the visit and hope to see you again!!"
