Traveler Testimonials

“Visiting the gorillas was one of the best experiences of my life. Arranging my trip with Rafiki Adventures was smooth and efficient with great customer service. Joseph was an excellent host/guide answering our many inquiries about life and culture in Uganda. He escorted us safely to our accommodation in the evening, and booked us for the best Gorilla group to visit! Karim, our driver, frequently stopped to show and explain many varieties of Ugandan wildlife en route to and from Kampala. Karim also appeared to make friends to every one he met along the way and other drivers in the park. Everyone was very kind and friendly. We hope to plan a Jinja trip with Rafiki Adventures and may be another trip next time I am in Uganda.”

Joseph has been a fantastic host and guide, always seeking our enjoyment. It was because of him that the trip has gone so smoothly and I have enjoyed every meal, hotel and Safari trip (both driving and the boat ride). Thanks you for such a memorable experience!”
