We have just returned from a great trip in Uganda organised by TravelLocal's partners. Steve and Rachel were highly responsive and really understood our needs. Previously I had been with several of the big names, but found they just offered the standard routes and places (at a lot more money). However, Steve and Rachel listened and the tour was just right – sufficiently challenging to be interesting, but manageable and with many major highs (boat trips in QNEP and all day Chimp tracking as well as of course the Gorillas) We generally liked the simpler and the community lodges best where the welcome was so genuine. Our Driver/guide was also excellent looking after us so well over the 2 weeks. He worked really hard and was always totally on top of everything – ensuring that we got everywhere in good time, had good guides and seats etc. He is also an excellent and very safe driver, which is really important given the roads and the miles we did – we always felt totally relaxed. We also loved the vans which are very comfy. I would really not change anything and would thoroughly recommend both Uganda and TravelLocal's experts for a real African experience.
they listened to what we wanted and were happy to discuss and modify until we found the optimal tour. They know the country backwards and find interesting and well positioned accommodation and activities - not just the standard stuff. I also like their vehicles with pop up roof for game drives - very comfortable and efficient they were very responsive during the trip
not much - think they have it right
see in the main review - low key, very conscientious and reliable, who knew exactly what to do and worked hard for us. A really nice guy
Uganda is quite hard core Africa - with terrible roads and a long way to go in terms of development, but it has fantastic wildlife and is not yet overwhelmed by tourists - that is its major attraction. The people are all incredibly friendly and really glad that you are there
