Best tour operator for the ultimate Ugandan experience! I can’t thank enough Jackson for the whole itinerary planning and my travel guide and buddy Geoffrey (commonly known as George) for the unforgettable trip! Every aspect of the trip was carefully tailored, from the activities and time schedules to the accommodation options and road travel. Apart from the safari & gorilla trek kings, the itinerary included many activities aimed to experience the Ugandan culture and engage with the local communities. The lodges were excellent and the activities exceeded my expectations. Geoffrey is a very knowledgable guide and knows every region of Uganda inside out! He even made additions and adjustments to the initial itinerary depending on my preferences! You can definitely rely on Primate World Safaris to organise an unforgettable trip based on your specific requirements! I’m really looking forward to my next Uganda visit to explore the rest of the country with Primate World Safaris! Thanks again Jackson & Jeffrey!

Fantastic service We travelled to Uganda with our adult children to attend a family wedding but were keen to also see some of the country and wildlife. Jackson was really helpful in planning a trip for the five of us that fitted into our schedule and enabled us to visit Queen Elizabeth National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Highlights were seeing lions, elephants and hippos and our day gorilla trekking. Our guide Abdul was fantastic and looked after us really well making sure we had frequent stops and he was expert at spotting wildlife. All accommodation was good and staff very helpful. We had a fantastic time!

You must do this tour This was absolutely, hands down the best trip we have ever been on. The itinerary was perfect. We got to see everything we had hoped for (the Big 5, local communities and the Ugandan landscapes) plus many, many things we had never dreamed of. The accommodations that Primate World chooses are perfectly paired with the environment you’re in and each one has its own personality. The Ugandan people are some of the nicest we’ve ever met and are incredibly welcoming. We also loved that Primate World goes to great lengths to ensure they pair with businesses that support the communities, local people and sustain the environment for tourists to continue to enjoy responsibly. But what really made the entire tour was our guide George. He was very knowledgeable about all our destinations, was the best animal tracker and made sure we were taken care of the entire time. He even personalized our tour more and more as he got to know us. He has truly become a friend and because of him and Primate World, this “once in a lifetime trip” has become a trip we are already planning to do again with family and friends. If you want to experience the best Uganda has to offer with some of the best people you’ll ever meet, you have to choose Primate World.

Good experience with friendly and service minded guide! Though, a bit untrustworthy company whiteout transparency Primate world safari arranged a nice safari trip to a tolerable price. Even though, we choose budget accommodation it didn’t felt like that at all. We had Huzaima as a guide who was great company, knowledgeable and service minded. Though, he seemed a bit overworked and therefore came off a bit unprofessional at times forgetting important details. We also experienced unprofessionalism in the process of booking the safari trip. There was a lot of going back and fourth around the availability of the accommodation spot ( Fort Murchison) as it was promised on the website. It seemed like they where trying to earn money on our nativity as tourists- which didn’t work on us because I’m a part Ugandan and had a relative that could check on it in Kampala, which then resolved the “issue”. I think this is unfortunate to exploit a situation where people are fare away and is trusting the business to be fair. I would have wished for more focuse on providing good service and transparency about the situation. Overall a good experience and Murchison falls is a must see!

Memorable lifetime experience There were several memorable highlights including chimpanzee tracking, gorilla tracking and boat trip on Kazinga Channel. My driver/guide George made a solo travel experience as an older woman feel friendly, safe and interesting every day. Manager Jackson organised this trip really well and there were no travel or accommodation setbacks.

Amazing Safari We booked safari from Aug 19th till September 1st, visiting Masai Mara and then Uganda. From the beginning, Jackson communicated promptly and clearly to all questions, no matter what time of the day. We started the journey in Nairobi, our guide was Allen who is quite knowledgeable about animals and roads of Masai Mara, made sure we experienced the Great Migration. Highlight was watching mother Cheetah and her 3 Cubs. Next stop was Entebbe, Uganda. Jackson arranged for our luggage to be transported via Jeep otherwise we would have payed $300 for excess baggage (baggage weight limited to 15kg for 2). In Uganda we saw the origins of Nile, Chimpanzee trekking, and big 4.During our Uganda Stay, our guide was Geoffrey, extremely knowledgeable of the country (politics,geography,nature,roads) but most importantly kind and considerate. My husband got ill during the trip, Geoffrey took us to community hospital at night and stayed there throughout to ensure that Peter gets the right care. In Entebbe, both Jackson and Geoffrey took care of his medical needs and we will always be grateful. Despite the medical set back, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The flexibility of itinerary was helpful, enjoyed nature, appreciated hospitality and kindness of people of Uganda. We feel that we got more value for the money. They delivered more than we were expecting.We are planning to return in July 2022 to do Gorilla Trekking.

Our trip in Uganda would not have been the same without Primate World Safaris ! We highly recommend Primate World Safaris for a trip in Uganda. We booked a car with a driver for our French family of 6 for 2 weeks in August. Jackson, the manager, was always available to answer our questions about the booking or the country on WhatsApp or by email. The booking was easy and Jackson made sure we were happy with our driver during the trip. Geoffroy, was not only a driver but also a guide and an activity planner. We thank him very much for his kindness and professionalism. He knows every road of his country, including the good ones of the national parks where we saw a lot of wildlife, including the big four (we decided to skip Rhino Sanctuary). Thanks to Geoffroy, we learnt many things about Uganda’s culture and history. He did his best for us to enjoy our stay. Our trip in Uganda would not have been the same without Geoffroy and Jackson. Thank you Primate World Safaris !

12 day game, chimpanzee and gorilla safari Had such an incredible time on our 12 day safari around Uganda with Primate World Safaris. Jackson took care of all our arrangements and promptly and helpfully answered our questions before we confirmed our booking. We found Primate World Safaris through Responsible Travel and were told that they are the best in Uganda for ensuring responsible visits to national parks and respect for wildlife. We were picked up from the airport by our guide, Alex Gabiito, and our adventure started. Our itinerary was busy and varied maximising our time in Uganda. It included: - an exhilerating experience white water rafting on the Nile; - a visit to Murchison Falls NP to view the breathtaking and explosive waterfall, as well as spotting elephants, lions, various antelope, buffalo, various exotic birds and monkeys in the park; - trekking chimpanzees in Kibale forest; - spotting leopards, crocodiles, hippos, lots of elephants, zebras, giraffes, warthogs and numerous birds in Queen Elizabeth NP and Lake Mburo NP; - trekking the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest; - meeting local communities and conservationists to hear about their amazing work preserving Uganda's wildlife. Our guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and experienced and is highly recommended, especially if you're a bird enthusiast (he was nominated Uganda's best bird guide a couple of years' ago). He made sure that we saw and experienced as much as we could in the time we had. We felt safe and looked after at all times. The accommodation we stayed in far exceeded our expectations and made sure we were rested enough for our jam-packed itinerary. Uganda is stunning and has so much to offer - I can't imagine anywhere else that has such a high concentration of amazing wildlife and scenery. If you want an authentic and responsible safari trip to Uganda, choose Primate World Safaris.

Highly recommanded for single traveler Great experience!Rammy -the guide the best I could imagine,so helpful,so informed,so great driver,and so kinde!I realy enjoyed so much every single moment.Thnx Rammy Jackson planed for me a great tour -didnt miss anything,made every day a different adventure--thanks Jackson for that. Lodges and food were exelent all the way-exept in River lodge /Jinja-the place is horible,stuff disappeared and left you all alone in a room with a broken door key and a lot of holes in nets and walls....not worth remembering All the local guides and rengers were so plesent,engaged in explining you everything,helping you enjoy as much as possible-thank them all for hospitality and such a good time The only annoying thing is that I had a lot of problems with monay -namely US $ I had to spend for activities(normaly I took it from my bank).They dont accept any banknote that is older (2013 y.),or with any kinde of fingerprints ,ink spots,.....terrible and unreal!!!Eaven in exchange office they do the same.So , advice for the future traveler -check every single bank note before you come to Uganda ! Highly recommanded for single traveler

  • Chimps are the closest animals to humans and observing them in the wild allows you to notice the subtle things that we very easily associate with.

Even better is the fact that Kibale is the best place to see wild chimpanzees in the whole world. They live naturally in the rainforest. They have been habituated and are used to seeing people on a regular basis.

  • Sweet for the Kids, buying delicious fruits from the local roadside market and trying out tea harvesting with the people who produce Uganda's famous tea.
Moving from Kampala to Kibale is about much more than covering ground on your way to the chimps, it is also about such local experiences with everyday Ugandans in the countryside.

  • Just a special adrenaline adventure on the Nile. Battling the epic grade 5 rapids of the longest river.
White water rafting in Uganda can be done at any time of the year and is safe, daring, and FUN. Whether you are an adrenaline junky or you want a test for your nerves, it will deliver.

  • #DidYouKnow That while African buffalos look like cows, they are not to be played with.
Buffalos have volatile temperaments and are known to attack anyone who disturbs them. The best way to see them is in the safety of your safari car.
