    "I experienced an excellent 5 days safari at Queen Elizabeth National Park with a bónus at the end, a visit to Curatic Botanic Gardens and a zoo in Entebbe. Many thanks to Moses and all your team including Hajarah and the fantastic driver and guide, Paul. He never leaves a stone unattended and is the best birds' expert I have ever known. Many thanks to you all. I will recommend Simba Africa Expeditions to all of the people I know who maybe interested in making safaris in Uganda or Rwanda. I hope to return soon."

    "A couple times per year we bring a large group of people from the US to Uganda. For 10 years we'd been working with Simba's owner Moses and his drivers. They handle all of our transportation needs on the ground in Uganda. Our trips usually start off with traveling from Kampala to Gulu and some remote villages - all of which is no problem for Simba's drivers. Plus Simba has both large Rosa Buses down to smaller vans or SUVs. His team can easily handle our group of more than 50 people down to small groups of just 2 or 3 people. All of his drivers are very safe, always so kind, and trustworthy. You can feel safe knowing they are all well trained, have years of experience, and there is no funny business (such a drinking). At the end of our trips Moses and his team also coordinate and amazing safari for our team to Para Lodge - truly an incredible way to finish our travels. Again I can't speak more highly of this company, the owner, and his team. Even after driving with them for so many years we've seen it all on the crazy roads on Uganda and they always take good care of our safety."

    "We went on a 7days wildlife, chimpanzee and gorilla safari with Simba Africa Expeditions and everything as planned in the emails with Hajara worked out perfectly during the safari. Our tour driver Moses was very patient with all of our questions and came up with the perfect trip for us. Moses was exceptional and had an amazing knowledge about his country, culture and almost knew everyone in all the parks we visited. He answered all our questions and was also good in spotting some birds. The food was nice and the local people were friendly plus the kids who often called us mzungu. The lodges were carefully selected and matched our imaginations. I recommend anyone wishing to travel to Uganda to use this Agency."
