2 Days Jinja Tour
Rating: Excellent(5)

We thoroughly enjoyed our adventure to Jinja with Ram! He picked us up from the airport and drove us straight to Jinja to our hotel. He then guided us to a whitewater rafting adventure the next morning and to the Source of the Nile that afternoon. Then he drove us back to Kampala after our Jinja adventure. He was professional, knowledgeable, and effective at negotiating on our behalf making our trip to this exotic place seamless and without incident. Thank you Ram and Trailblazer Safaris!!!

I give Abdul Wagwa and Trailblazer Safaris ten stars! Abdul guided us on our honeymoon for a week that included Kampala, the Equator, Murchison Falls, and a homestay in Lira Province. He was knowledgeable about the animals, highly professional, deeply connected to the community, and fun. We always felt safe with Abdul, even when walking around little rural villages. He is a non-smoker, non-drinker, punctual, meticulous, and good at negotiating on our behalf with the members of the community that we were visiting. I would highly, highly recommend him and Trailblazer Safaris to all. We plan to hire him again when we return for another trip to Uganda. We couldn’t imagine our trip without him.  Thank you Abdul!

We had a fantastic holiday which was very well organised. We were looked after extremely well by Joseph. Joseph is a very knowledgeable guide & he made everything run smoothly. We felt safe in his hands!
The countryside of Uganda is beautiful & all the lodges we stayed in were fantastic with beautiful views. We appreciated the pools too. The service & food at Muhingo Lodge was excellent. The views at Mweya Safari Lodge were amazing.
The gorilla trekking was definitely a highlight – seeing the gorillas so close up was brilliant.
Some of the journeys were long but the scenery was great & we had plenty of stops – I don’t think we appreciated how long it takes with all the speed bumps!
The trip to Kampala was great too – we really enjoyed the sights there. Latitude was a great place & we enjoyed meeting everyone at the dinner.
Thanks so much. Jane.

Abdul is the best!!! Great man.
The trip was awesome, so diverse.

Only some things like Amuka Lodge or the Shoebill tracking were a little bit disapointing for us.
Makes more sense to go directly from the Rhino tracking to the Murchison Falls N.P

I had an amazing trip and I am very happy with the trail blazer safari. I would recommend trailblazer safari to others and make my bookings again any time.
However, one thing I didn’t like was that it was not communicated to us, that there will be extra costs at the ZIWA sanctuary. The itinerary read “full board”. Yet we needed to pay 116 dollars cash upon arrival. In my opinion this should have been communicated in advance.
Looking back it would have made more sense to do the rhino tracking without staying a night there. Maybe even skip the shoebill boat cruise entirely. However, this is just a very personal opinion and depending on personal interests.
Abdul was a delight for our trip. He acted professionally. He treated us and others very kindly. He got out of his way to fulfill our every wishes. He is very good driver. We felt safe in his car at all times. And he is fun to be around.
We really liked the accommodation Byoona Amagara. It is very basic, yet connected to the nature, for a very good price, great food and a super nice chill out area. Overall a very good budget option for future guests.

We planned our itinerary with expert advice from Henry.  He responded quickly to our requests and questions and gave us a variety of options during the planning stages.  He was very patient and responsive to our needs.  When the trip was postponed due to the Pandemic Henry kept in touch and was on hand when we were ready to travel.  He responded flexibly to changes we decided to make and made sure that the trip reflected what we wanted.  Henry was also helpful and efficient when our luggage was delayed.  He communicated with the airport and ensured that our luggage was delivered to us as soon as possible – by this point we were over five hours out of Kampala so this was very much appreciated.  Tracie and Joseph were also very reassuring and helpful when they met us at the airport without our luggage.

All of the lodges were great and represented excellent value for money.  The food was super too.  Our driver and guide, Joseph, was brilliant.  From the outset we felt safe and comfortable with him and he helped  ensure that we had a wonderful holiday.  He made sure we were fed and watered and had plenty of wash room stops when travelling.  He was knowledgeable about wildlife, culture and politics.  When we requested a change to the itinerary so that I could meet a friend he was flexible and accommodating and made it possible for us to meet.  Joseph was also flexible when we decided to change the timing of activities.  For example, when we asked to do the Wetlands Walk the following day Joseph sorted this out.

Henry and his Trailblazer’s team were friendly and professional and our custom itinerary exceeded our expectations.  The service and support at all times was excellent.  There was a lot of hard work behind the scenes and the resulting holiday demonstrated what a professional service this organisation offers.  We had an absolutely wonderful holiday.
