Excellent Experience with Karumuna Safaris. I highly recommend Karumuna Safaris. The service they provide is impeccable - whether it's communication leading up to the tour, guiding during the tour itself and beyond, this company is top-notch! 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. Read more

Great for the budget traveler, with customizable itins and wonderful people. 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. Read more
