Great Experience, Great company This was an amazing trip! I only had 2 days to spare before heading home and was unsure if it was going to be worth it, It definitely was! Though more days would be better, I say don't hesitate to take the two day trip if that's all the time you have. There was still a huge amount of animals and birds I saw within those two days and it exceeded my expectations that were already high. Simba Africa Expeditions was a great company to do the safari with. From the get go they had great communication before the trip and were quick to respond to any questions. Fred my Guide/Driver was amazing too. He really made sure I got the most out of the trip and taught me not only just about wildlife and conservation but a lot about Uganda in general as well. If I'm ever back to do another tour, I will be requesting Fred for sure. Overall I highly recommend doing a tour with Simba Africa Expeditions and even if you only do this two day trip you won't regret it.

My go-to for traveling in UG It was my third tour over the course of 1.5 years with Simba and all three have been wonderful: - Jinja day tour with a friend in 2022 - Queen Elizabeth Park with some friends, also in 2022 - Murchison Falls with my family in 2023 All three were exceptionally well organized and delivered everything that was promised. Also a rather small, Ugandan-owned tour operator which is a plus in my book. The guides for each tour were great as well. Really knowledgeable on a wide variety of topics. From Ugandan history to culture, society, politics and of course wildlife. No question was left unanswered. Also big shout-out to the most recent guide I had the pleasure with: Frank. Top-notch guy. I'm definitely coming back for some other tours. At least for destination I don't want to drive myself.

Authentic Ugandan safari The guide told us a lot about the history and culture of Uganda which was very interesting and informative. The staff in the lodge was super friendly and took great care of us. All in all we had a great time and we’re surrounded by very kind people and got to see a lot of animals (including leopard)

George was the best We had George as our tour guide and he was very professional, very friendly, and very knowledgeable. He was always early to any of our events and knew fun facts about all of the animals we saw. He made sure we saw all the animals on our list and had the best seats for the Nile ride. I will for sure be asking for him again next time we come back to Uganda.

Your Operator Caught Lying Unfortunately I cannot recommend this company. 0/5 stars, here is why: In July 2023 we were scheduled for a 2 day, 1 night visit to Bwindi National Park to see mountain gorillas. We booked this tour about 8 months in advance, and it is the most expensive tour we have ever booked; rightfully so if money goes towards conservation and supporting the local people. Our third party guide who happened to be our driver that day was excellent, and wonderful to talk to, to learn from, and he was very helpful. We loved spending time with him. We would absolutely book directly with him in the future and would recommend HIM personally to anyone needing tours in East Africa. But this tour operator company itself, and an apparent owner/boss Moses (pictured), lied to us repeatedly on the phone and completely lost our trust. Despite booking a tour in Bwindi, and doing that on purpose based on the location, vegetation, and potential wildlife to see other than the gorillas themselves, when we arrived we realized we were being driven to another park: Mgahinga. For those of you not familiar with the parks, Bwindi is home to 35+ gorilla families, has thick vegetation (impenetrable forest), and various other species. It is the largest and most famous park and in central Uganda. Mgahinga is literally two hours south on the border with Rwanda, has 1 gorilla family, clearer paths and bamboo vegetation, and much less in terms of other species. It’s very possible our experience with the gorillas themselves would’ve been similar, but after booking several months in advance, confirming through email, confirming again through text about our trip to Bwindi, and even getting responses continuing to state again we were booked for Bwindi, we felt betrayed to be taken to another park that is less famous and less exciting, and less adventurous in terms of the hike. I also know that mistakes happen; maybe they got mixed up or didn’t book permits in time as Bwindi tends to be fully booked. Maybe they thought they could save money by going to a park closer to our pick up point in the south instead of driving all the way to Bwindi, I can’t say for sure. But what I can say for sure is after asking about it, the main person answering the phone for the company started by lying to me and attempted to tell me Mgahinga park was a part of Bwindi park, before changing her words to being “similar” when I told her that just wasn’t true. I recorded the phone call. Then I spoke on the phone with Moses, seemingly a boss within the company, who blatantly lied to me several times (all recorded) that “Mgahinga is part of Bwindi” and I just need to listen to him and I don’t know what I’m talking about because I’m not from Uganda. “Bwindi has seven zones and Mgahinga is one of them”. He had a bad attitude and maybe feared he would get in trouble. He kept raising his voice and after I told him I recorded him lying to me repeatedly, literally over and over and over again, trying to tell me Mgahinga was a part of Bwindi, and asked if I should go to the tourism board in Kampala he had a lot less to say, and then a few hours later our permits were fixed and we were able to get up early to make the rest of the drive and still hike in Bwindi as booked. That all being said, the driver we had was phenomenal, the culture and education around supporting the local people, the welcoming with traditional dancing and singing in Bwindi, and the handmade shops to support the locals, in particular a women’s group, was amazing. The trackers, porters, and tracking guide in Bwindi itself were also amazing and very friendly and fun to be with. The pre trek briefing before all the groups split up to look for gorillas was great. The hike was beautiful. Seeing the gorillas themselves was truly amazing (grunting, climbing, swinging, babies wrestling) so I couldn’t recommend a gorilla tour more. It’s truly awesome. But, I wouldn’t book it with this tour operator…When you are spending so much money - gorilla tracking permits are a lot - and traveling across the world, you want to trust your tour operator to be honest. And I simply don’t trust this company anymore. Moses lied to me over and over about a very basic geographical fact anyone can Google in ten seconds, even if they’ve never been to Uganda before and especially obvious if you had been to Uganda before. You can’t lie to people, plain and simple. And even still, he never apologized or owned up to it after being obviously caught. I worry how many times he has lied to other tourists who weren’t comfortable or knowledgeable enough to defend themselves the day of during their trips. I worry if I hadn’t spoken up for us if our amazing tour in Bwindi would’ve been very different in the place they tried to trick us into go to, Because they updated our permits at the last minute, we aren’t going to the tourism board, but we are keeping all the evidence of being lied to in text, email, and audio. Any tour guide or tourism official would know they were blatantly lying listening to the phone call. All tour companies and guides in Uganda are registered with the tourism board and have a licensing number for you to look up and use in case you run in to trouble. Enjoy this amazing experience, just with another tour operator.

Amazing experience Amazing experience. Booked last minute and they arrange everything immediately. George, the guide was fantastic. Nice chatter for the long drive. The tour was really nice and I was very lucky to be able to see lions. The Nile river cruise really worth it. Highly recommended. If you are going to pay in USD cash make sure the bills are brand new. The country is very peaky with the marked, wear ones.

Unforgettable adventure. From first contact Simba Expeditions were so professional and flexible. We asked to change the advertised schedule to our preferred schedule and within an hour I had a new schedule and quote. It was booked within 2 hours. Tonny was our tour guide and arrived early, supported us to have everything in place to leave with everything we needed and we were on the road at the right time. As a frequent traveller to East Africa, I do worry at times about road safety but Tonny’s driving was excellent from beginning to end and I felt safe in his care. The game drives! Omg! On almost every occasion Tonny found the animals first and other drivers were following him or asking him for where to go. We saw so much in two days. Three different prides of lions, including a lioness with her 1-2 week old cubs. What I loved most about having Tonny as our guide is that while he always found the best sightings first (and we got amazing first views of the animals) he actively discouraged less experienced guides from disrupting the animals. For example, when we found the lioness and her 1-2 week old cubs, another guide started going off-road and disrupting the mother and her cubs. Tonny encouraged them to give her space and I really appreciated knowing we were in the hands of someone who respected nature. A similar thing happened on day two. Tonny found a pride of lions first and we enjoyed watching them for 15 minutes before others arrived. When they arrived they started putting their vehicle between the mother and her 6 month old cubs and he challenged them to back away. What the inexperienced drivers were doing was not only distressing to the pride, but was pushing them to cross the road away from all of us, when we could have all watched them more closely if they’d been patient, turned their engines off and let nature do it’s thing. Tonny is a pro! And not only a pro but a skilled photographer. I was here with a colleague for work so we didn’t have proper cameras. Tonny took amazing photos of what we were witnessing and sent them to us afterwards. If you’re thinking about a safari in Uganda, go with Simba Expeditions, and ask for TONNY!
