Kimkim Trip Reviews for Uganda

Mar 29 - Apr 13, 2023
Lucy organised a most fantastic itinerary for us in Namibia and Mauritius. Nothing was too much trouble in the planning stage and she was very flexible and patient in helping us adjust the details of our trip, answering our queries and choosing the right accommodation. Everything went smoothly once we were there. read more
Dee, thank you so much for this wonderful and helpful review.
I am so pleased you had a great holiday. Was such a pleasure working with you on perfecting this trip!
Great guide, poor accommodation choices
Nov 10 - Dec 3, 2022
Gideon, our guide was great, and provided excellent service, and should have been consulted when Vivian was developing our itinerary. The micro-lodges Vivian booked us into were not necessarily the best choices for us, and we suspect a conflict of interest. The Budda Guest House in particular was well out of the way, causing extra travel time.
We will write more about this read more
many thanks for your feedback. Thank you for the time for the telephone conversation today.
We are sorry that the Lodges did not match exactly the expectations. We are always trying to find special accommodation that is either fitting into the budget and/or has a special beautiful setting that we think is matching the customers wishes.
Vivian and team.
Unforgettable trip to Uganda!
Aug 13 - Sep 1, 2022
Our trip through Uganda was amazing!
The tour was perfect organized, our driver and guide Teo (Able Safaris, a local office, 19 days) was perfect, he managed everything in a good way.
The gorilla-tracking, the beautiful landscape, the game drives, the friendly people,.. all that we will never forget! read more

Didn’t have to worry about any arrangements. The hotels were exactly what we wanted. Every single hotel was more beautiful than the next. Truly a dream holiday!
Phenomenal Trip! 18-Day Trip to Uganda
Jul 31 - Aug 17, 2021
We just returned from an 18-day trip. What an amazing experience!!! We want to say it was a Trip-of-a-Lifetime, but we loved it so much, we plan to return. This trip was two years in the making due to Covid restrictions. Thank you, Taf, for coordinating this entire trip for us. It was perfectly planned! And we appreciate your prompt replies to all our concerns prior to going. Once we arrived to Uganda, we realized our fears were due to social media/political issues of our own country. ... read more
Thank you so much for your kind words and for the detailed account of your trip. I am glad you had a wonderful time and were able to have an adventurous and authentic cultural experience. I will make sure to pass on your kind comments and praise to our partners in Uganda who make us proud every time and loved having you in Uganda.
We trust we will host you again, hopefully you can visit Southern Africa next time. It has been an absolute pleasure to assist you in planning this... read more
Gorillas, safari and new Ugandan familia :)
May 12 - May 18, 2021
Long story short, I have planned this trip since last year but as we all know covid; came along and things got cancelled. My initial contact was Anne; which now I consider her as part of my family. She always responded to my questions and she took time from her busy schedule to meet me at the airport. My journey started with Bob; which he was a great guide. I am a solo female traveler and I never felt unsafe. I had a wonderful experience trekking for the silver back gorillas; it’s a feeling... read more
Thank so much for your great review.
It was an absolute pleasure having you in Uganda.
We look forward to hosting you again.
Fantastic Uganda trip thanks to KimKim/Natureissan and Vivian!
Jan 22 - Feb 1, 2020
We just returned from an amazing trip to Uganda. Vivian was a true pleasure to work with. She is super responsive and planned us a first-class trip with one week notice. She arranged for the best guide ever in Hamid, who stopped us up at the airport and showed us all over his country for 12 days. We saw the rare African shoebill, chimpanzees in Kibale, lions and elephant in QE park, rare golden monkeys in MGhahinga--each a special trek or exploration. We stayed in beautiful lodges, especially... read more
Trip to Uganda
Jan 6 - Jan 26, 2019
I planned my very first trip to Africa (specifically Uganda) using kimkim and I could not be happier with the outcome. I was picked up at the Entebbe airport upon my arrival and dropped again at the airport after 3 weeks to fly back, and in between I had quite a few memorable adventures which I will remember for the rest of my life.
Uganda is a wonderful country full of natural parks, lakes, and wild animals, but I should say the most amazing part of my trip was interacting with Ugandan... read more
Dear Seyed, thank you so much for the wonderful review! Indeed Kidepo and Karamoja are one of the hidden gems in Uganda definitely worth visiting.
Warm regards, and we hope to welcome you again one day!
Uganda habituation experiences
Dec 22 - Dec 28, 2018
I wanted to travel to Uganda for gorilla habituation, golden monkey habituation, and chimpanzee habituation. Agnes was a great help in answering all my questions promptly, and she helped organize the whole trip itinerary for me given the activities I wanted to do. From the moment I landed in Uganda to the moment I left, everything was well taken care of. I had a great time seeing many different types of primates in Uganda, and I highly recommend Agnes and her tour company.
Thank you for traveling with us Kat
View Gorillas in Uganda
Oct 1 - Oct 7, 2018
The trip was fantastic driving from Rwanda through Uganda the experience seeing the people, small towns was wonderful. The Gorilla Trekking was much harder than we thought at 7,500 ft above sea level. We live at sea level. Our idea was doing the Habitational on the first day and a regular trek the following day...bad idea as we were very sore after a 10 hour up and down hills including 4 hours following the gorilla family. Following day we just bailed out of the trek as we needed the rest,... read more
Dear Bill and Sue,
thank you so much for the review, it is wonderfull to see you enjoyed the pearl of africa. Thank you for the feedback about the lodge in bwindi. I will follow it up!
I hope you will come back one time to see the rest of the country!
Trip to Uganda
Jul 3 - Jul 5, 2018
Aron Mugisha, our guide was incredible. He went out of his way to meet our needs and show us so much more than we had planned on. 5 stars!
My only complaint (which I feel turned more favorable to us) was that our lodging and area to see the gorillas was changed without notifying us. We had no idea until we checked into a new place that was not on the itinerary. All in all, we loved the change...but it would have been nice to be notified.
I will definitely use your services again. Thank you.
