East African Discovery organised an excellent trip away for the 5 of us, they were able to sort everything we wanted for the duration of the holiday. We had a superb trip away and would recommend booking with them. Our trip was tailor made from the start, with communication over email being a stress-free experience. Hopefully we will use you again, to return to the excellent gorilla trek. Thanks East African Discovery. Read more

Monique , France

I would like to congratulate you for the very good trip you organized for the five of us. The driver, Herbert, was excellent, careful and full of attention, very punctual and always ready to satisfy us. He was always the first one to see the animals. We have been very lucky - leopard (2) - a female lion with 3 little ones - 6 sleepy lions - lions in the trees, gorillas after a walk of only 20 minutes, elephants, hippos etc.... The lodges were all excellent and full of charm; we enjoyed them very much. I shall not fail to recommend your company. Read more

Jocelyn , Canada

We had a 6-day safari in Uganda arranged by Ben Tinsley at East African Discovery in late November 2016. It exceeded all expectations for value for money, accommodation, variety of scenery and sights, and quality of the driver/guide. We have travelled extensively including in other parts of East Africa. Uganda is truly special. We appreciated that the company is locally owned, with excellent local intelligence and experience in the tourism and game tracking fields in Uganda. We liked that the company is small, offering bespoke safaris rather than off-the-shelf itineraries. Ben responded to all queries and requests promptly during the planning stage and no question was too silly to ask. Our driver/guide was prompt, organised, informative, and friendly - he had grown up in a part of the country that we visited so his local knowledge was particularly good. The chimpanzee and gorilla tracking were experiences of a lifetime. Everything went off without a hitch. The pricing of EAD was considerably better than that offered for similar safaris by the larger outfits. We would recommend EAD without reservation. Read more
