Great trip to Uganda!

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I spent two weeks in Uganda in September 2006. We used Travelust Africa Safaris (http://www.travelust.com/) to arrange our trip and they did a great job! I corresponded with James, the owner, over the course of a couple of months and he was very patient, helpful and informative as we
devised an itinerary that would cover everything we wanted to do. He even
managed to get us gorilla trekking permits for two different days with two different groups at the last minute when I was slow with making a final commitment about our schedule. Our guide/driver for the two weeks was Daniel and he was very knowledgeable, friendly and accomodating. We really enjoyed his company. And, Travelust provided a comfortable and reliable vehicle which was very important given the amount of time spent on the road.
The whole trip was fantastic! We started out at the Ngamba Chimp Sanctuary (one of the highlights of the trip!), then went to Murchison Falls, Queen Elizabeth, Kibale, Bwindi, and Lake Mburo National Parks. They were all different with lots of animals and very comfortable accomodations. We were
some of the first tourists to stay at Travelust's new lodge in Bwindi and we
really enjoyed it. The location was great with views looking directly onto the forest. The staff, headed by Milton, catered to our every need and the chef, Moses, really went all out preparing vegan meals at our request.

The western part of Uganda that we traveled through was stunningly beautiful and the weather was absolutely perfect that time of year. We saw so many amazing animals - lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, crocs, chimps, gorillas and so many more! And, the Ugandan people were very friendly and welcoming. We would highly recommend Uganda as a fantastic African travel
destination and Travelust as a great tour operator!
