Fantastic journey

We heard a lot of fantastic things about Uganda and Nico allowed us to experience all of these things!
Before the trip we went through everything and discussed what we wanted to do and Nico arranged everything.
Once in Uganda, we didn’t have to worry about anything anymore.

It was a fantastic journey with beautiful fauna and flora, moments of relaxation and adventures.
Our topmoments: mountain gorillas, rafting on the Nile, the many safari’s in de parks, the food, … We can’t list everything without going through our entire vacation.
Highly recommended!

Our trip was a series of highlights. The mountain gorillas, Queen Elisabeth National park, sleeping with the rhinos, … all once in a lifetime experiences. Thank you for an unforgettable trip!

The organisation was amazing

Very pleased with our first experience of beautiful Africa! Nico prepared everything to perfection both before and during the trip. An absolute highlight was the beautiful nature such as in Queen Elisabeth National Park and Sipi Falls. For lovers of some adventure, there is also a lot to experience in beautiful Uganda, such as abseiling and rafting. You shouldn’t care about anything during this trip. Everything will be arranged for you! Even in difficult corona times, the organisation was amazing!
