What Our Guests Say About Us

  • My husband and I had a week vacation, which is not a lot given all the things we wanted to do/see. Nkuringo organized our trip to make the most of this week. The trip was flawlessly organized. Time-management was perfect. They were flexible and accommodating, all our needs were met and we felt listened to, it was a truly customized experience. Our guide (Darrick) was amazing, he was knowledgable, very informative, and very flexible too! He also went above and beyond to make sure we experienced the things we were showing interest on. We are truly happy with Nkuringo and will recommend to friends and family. Read More
  • Don’t miss out on this unique experience. Our guide with Nkuringo Walking Safaris, Richard was excellent. We had an informative and unique walk down the mountain from Kisoro to Lake Mutanda. We walked through villages and saw families actively working their farms. Children along the way were delightful. The walk is easy. Once we arrived at the lake we got into canoes with Boatman David and his son. They took us across the lake ( a very big lake) to Chameleon Hill Lodge. The dugout canoe was very comfortable with padded seats to lean against. You can help paddle or not. It was a peaceful and beautiful tour of the lake. Highly recommended adventure. Read More
  • In November 2020, we travelled Uganda as a couple in a 4*4 Jeep. Considering the difficult time we are all in, we were especially happy about the level of service we experienced. If you have a negative COVID-19 test beforehand, you can travel Uganda with no problem. During our travel we felt very safe: all staff wore masks, if you enter buildings (Lodges, Banks etc.) or parks you have to sanitize your hands and your temperature will be taken. All in all, we felt safer than in Europe - as everybody was very considerate about our health. Read More
  • My son and I spent two weeks experiencing the magic that is Uganda and we will never forget our time there. Truly a priceless experience. I could talk about those experiences for pages -- the friendly people, the beautiful Nile River where we did whitewater rafting, the two lions we saw in a tree, the elephant who told us to back-off a bit, the chimpanzee group w/whom we spent a morning, and the majestic mountain gorillas who let us into their community for a visit. And on and on. Read more

You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.

Jane Goodall

While the need to go the proverbial extra mile is central to Nkuringo Safaris company philosophy—‘In Harmony With Nature’—our responsible travel wish is that our guests depart emotionally rich, more informed and ecologically aware than when they arrived and more appreciative of the world on their return home, is of paramount importance.
