Mikael Ringi, Sweden

We have been back in Sweden and Falun, enjoying the winter of course. But every day, in our minds, we travel back to East Africa and Uganda and relive an unforgettable safari. The savanna with giraffes, elephants and all the antelopes. The rainforest and the gorillas in the mist. The Nile with hippos and crocodiles. The Ngorongoro and Serengeti with the lions and other big cats and the awesome number of animals in the big migration. But we also remember curious kids, always smiling and ready for a football game during a short lunch stop. Awesome journeys on red and bad roads in the enriching company of Michael who became a lot more than just a guide and driver. He became a friend. So from the whole Ringi family, we would like to say thank you very much for your contribution to our unforgetable time in the Pearl of Africa. Read more

Markus & Stefanie, Germany

We just arrived after a 3 days Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi NP and squeezed in a Game Drive in QENP incl. the tree climbing lions in Ishasha! Godwin was a perfect driver and tour guide! We took Mamaland because Tony offered us a safari according to our request for an affordable price - also the accommodations where we stayed have been perfect - considering the price we paid! Further, Godwin offered us a ride to the airport - thx for that!! that are things which make it different to other operators!! can recommend it to everybody Read more
