Sarah, United States

The communication was clear and prompt, we couldn't decide on our itinerary based on work etc... and Harriet was really flexible and worked with us. Our driver Emmanuel made our 4 day stint fun and safe. We loved everything about our trip. Matoke tours took care of it all for us!

Howard, United States

“Matoke” means green bananas, and as you are guided through East Africa, especially Rwanda and Uganda, you see everyone eating them, buying them, cooking them....it’s an apt name for a great local African tour company. I will always try to utilize Matokes expertise. Green bananas are the way to go! Read more

James, United States

Matoke is always quick to respond to any inquiries, check in on you during your safari and everyone on the team was very professional and made you feel like more than just a customer. The tour itself was AMAZING, our tour guide Gabriel was very knowledgeable. Thank you for an unforgettable tour!
