We had a great trip to Uganda and Rwanda with Kazinga Tours! We started in Rwanda for the gorillas and continued to Uganda for the other animals. Our highlight were the gorilla and chimps! And the boat trips in both Murchison Falls and on the Kazinga Channel.
We were very happy to do this custom made trip. It was specially shaped and designed for us and included all the highlights we wanted. So thanks Kazinga team for the marvelous trip!
From the outset Faith at Kazinga was very prompt in her responses and helped us to shape the trip we wanted. Innocent was a great driver and guide, and even when the van developed problems there were local arrangements to provide new transport with no disruption to our trip. I would very much recommend them.

Myself and 2 friends (all girls) did a 7 day trip with Kazinga Tours, organised by Felex and with an excellent local driver, Denis. I consulted a few different tour operators, and Kazinga were by far the most impressive - responding promptly to our enquiry and helping us to tailor a really great itinerary which was affordable for us. We were able to inspect the vehicle and meet the driver ahead of our departure which was really reassuring and appreciated. Denis was a fantastic, professional guide and driver. We learned so much from him about the country and thoroughly enjoyed his company. He made the whole trip so relaxing, fun and informative and was always punctual, accommodating and a really safe and careful driver. We absolutely LOVED Uganda - it's such a beautiful country, with incredible wildlife, landscapes and people. In 7 days, we covered Kibale National Park, Fort Portal, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Lake Bunyonyi, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to see the Mountain Gorillas and then to the border of Rwanda, where we continued our adventure. My only regret was not taking Denis & Kazinga tours into Rwanda. We didn't realise ahead of time that this was possible! Highly recommend this tour agency, especially if you want to see a lot in a limited time! Fantastic!

My and my friend had a great 5 day trip with Kazinga tours. We chose Kazinga, because of reviews, price and the fast speed they (Faith) answered our e-mails etc.
Faith organised trip based on what we wanted to see and gave suggestions to make it even better. All went smoothly and we had a good driver. We went to Volcanoes to see golden monkeys, Bwindi to see gorillas and to lake Bunyonyi to chill in the end.
Price and organising was great. I wouldn't maybe recommend to take the 30$ a day full board. Afterwards when I saw the food prices on the trip, it seems bit expensive.

My husband and I booked our trip to Rwanda with Kazinga. Everything about Kazinga was great. We have no complaints. Hussein patiently helped us figure out the itinerary for our trip. He booked all of our hotels, arranged for all of our chosen activities, secured the permits we needed, and answered all our questions quickly.
We ultimately decided to go to Nyungwe Forest for two days to see chimps and colobus monkeys, to do three days of gorilla trekking and one day of golden monkey trekking at Volcanoes National Park, and to spend two nights in Kigali.
Once we arrived in Rwanda, we met our driver guide, Fred. Fred was amazing! He was so welcoming, patient, detail oriented, punctual, responsible, helpful, and fun to hang out with. I wanted to go shopping for art and pottery in Kigali, so shopping we went. I wanted to eat at two particular restaurants, so he made sure he knew how to get to them and that they would be open at the times that we wanted to go. He told us he'd pick us up at a certain time for the activity we were doing that day and he was there on time every single day. We always got to whatever activity we were doing ahead of time so we were never rushed. He always made sure we had all the equipment we needed, so that the activity always went smoothly. He always estimated driving times accurately and the amount of time it would take to complete an activity. Whenever we wanted to add an activity to the following day's itinerary, Fred would call ahead and make all the necessary arrangements to make sure we were able to do the activity. We wanted to change our itinerary to add an extra night in Kigali, so Fred immediately contacted Hussein and got it done. It looked like it was about to rain during one of our gorilla treks, so Fred managed to find a waterproof bag for our cameras without us even asking. And he always checked to make sure we were taking enough water and food on our treks. After one of our gorilla treks, my husband and I didn't want to do anymore organized activities, so Fred suggested driving into town and checking out the local market. It was a great idea! We spent a few hours lazily walking around the market, checking out neighboring shops, and stopped at a courthouse, which we found very interesting since we're both lawyers. On our way back to Kigali from Volcanoes National Park I decided I wanted to stop at the Muhabara Hotel to see the room that Diane Fossey stayed in every weekend and at Camp Kigali to see the Belgian memorial, and Fred immediately agreed it could be done. And all along the drives, Fred made sure to point out interesting landmarks, unique vegetation, and beautiful landscapes. I can't thank Fred enough for making our Rwanda vacation so memorable. He made sure we were always happy and comfortable. He was beyond accommodating and flexible. My husband and I don't just feel like we had an excellent driver guide in Rwanda. We feel like we made a friend.
We are so happy with Kazinga Tours, Hussein and Fred that my husband and I have already decided we're traveling to Uganda with Kazinga next year. We have no doubt that Hussein and Fred will make sure we have a very special vacation. Thank you, Kazinga. Thank you, Hussein. Thank you, Fred.
