Safari testimonial

In December 2013, Allan and Audrey Boyland from the UK booked a safari to Uganda with tour operator Audley Travel which was delivered on the ground by Great Lakes Safaris. This is how they reflect their trip to Kibale, Queen Elizabeth, Bwindi and Lake Mburo National Park:

"We just wanted to pass on the feedback that we had a fantastic time and much of the credit for this has to go to our guide Robert. He was great in both his capacities as driver and guide. As a driver he made us feel safe at all times. Always on time, always smart, always good fun and yet he wasn't overpowering.

We had a fantastic time in the short period we were there and have some great memories. It was a packed itinerary, sometimes tiring, but whenever we were flagging we got great bursts of energy from the next activity on the list. Lodges and food exceeded our expectations and the general hospitality everywhere was fantastic. Thanks for the great trip."
