Sarah, United States

Unforgettable Murchison falls & Budongo! We spent 6 day Safari tour days on safari with Harrison our guide/driver from StarMount Safaris. We weren't expecting a welcome party at the airport but there they were; the owner and the guide to give us a warm welcome to Uganda. Booking process was smooth via email, with quick responses and we thought it was a very competitive price having done much research of local tour operators. Everything was meticulously planned; we didn't have to think about park passes, lunch boxes, checking in etc. The guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and we were fortunate to see everything the itinerary said we would see. All in all an absolutely unforgettable trip. Couldn't recommend StarMount Safaris enough! Read more

Matt, United States

Amazing Gorilla Safari tour! We decided to book a safari tour last minute to Bwindi National Park. We contacted 4 tour companies in Uganda and only StarMount Safaris responded to our inquiry. We found them very professional, their response was timely, informative and they offered a variety of options to fit within the budget that we had. The tour was a success and flawless! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun to hang out with after the tour. StarMount safaris under sells but over delivers. We had fun and created loads of memories on our 4 day Gorilla Safari tour. I would use them again! Read more
