Safari testimonial

In May 2013, Great Lakes Safaris was honored to host Mr. Hara and his wife from Japan and introduce them to the impressive beauty of Uganda. This is what they said upon their return to Japan:

"Our trip to Uganda was unforgettable! Especially seeing the mountain gorillas only 10 minutes after we left the gate was an amazing experience. Also Queen Elizabeth National Park was unparalleled.

We mostly enjoyed our stays at the accommodations and the conversations with our driver during our safari. He was so friendly and helpful and could tell us a lot!"
