Tourist reviews for katella Uganda Safaris 

I recently had the most incredible safari experience with Katella Uganda Safaris, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Uganda is truly a hidden gem, offering a wealth of wildlife and breathtaking landscapes that are often overlooked. The Ugandan people are incredibly warm and welcoming, making the trip even more enjoyable. The service provided by the tour company was impeccable, ensuring a comfortable and memorable experience. Our guide, Arafat, was extraordinarily knowledgeable and guided us safely throughout the country. His expertise and passion for the wildlife and landscapes of Uganda were evident and added immense value to our safari. During our tour, we had the chance to see an amazing variety of animals including gorillas, chimpanzees, giraffes, elephants, buffalo, hippos, lions, zebras, warthogs, various types of antelope, baboons, other monkeys, and a stunning array of birds. If you're considering a safari, I highly recommend exploring Uganda with Katella. The country's diverse wildlife, coupled with the exceptional service and guidance, make for an unforgettable adventure. Uganda is truly an underrated destination that deserves more recognition for its beauty and the rich experiences it offers.

We were a group of 6 friends on a 12 day safari. We had an amazing trip. We saw so many animals as we went to every National Park around the country. We saw at least 75 elephants, 7 rhinos, 11 Silver Back Gorillas, a dozen Chimpanzees, hundreds of Babbons, 60 or more Elephants, Warthogs 20+ Monkeys and Lions. Katella did an amazing job. Florence and our driver, Arafat were fantastic. I have nothing bad to say. Katella was easily 5 of 5 stars.

Katella did an amazing job on our 12-day safari. We loved the itinerary, the accommodations, the animals…all of it far exceeded our expectations. LOVED the gorilla trek! I’m looking forward to hopefully coming back with a group.

This was certainly a trip of a lifetime! Katella paid attention to so many details, from the amazing lodges, to great food, and providing a fabulous guide Arafat. He was so knowledgable providing so much information about the landscape, the wildlife, the people of his country and so much more! Both he and Florence were responsive to all our needs and inquires. We saw More wildlife than we ever could have imagined (please keep in mind there no guarantees hence the name “wildlife”) Our opportunity to see the gorillas and some of of the big five was a dream come true! Very much appreciated Uganda’s approach to conservation of wildlife at its finest. Despite our own personal imaginations, we felt very safe, with no concerns at all. Ugandan people are so polite, happy, smiling, display customer service at its finest. It was a very humbling experience. In addition to Uganda, katella can customize your trips to Tanzania, Rwanda as well.

5++++++ I found out about this business from another person who spoke highly of them. Boy, was she right. This outfit was outstanding from the first text to the end of the tour. Florence was a delight to work with answering many questions and assisting with situations that were over, above and beyond the call of duty. She was simply amazing. The tour itself, 8 days, with highlights of Safaris, Silverback Gorillas, Chimpanzees and Golden Monkeys was everything I expected and more. Our guide, for the 8 days, was professional, knowledgeable and great company. He was only 'the best' and we were fortunate to have had him. Thank you to all staff at Katella Uganda Safaris. My trip was supurb and all because of you. I highly recommend this business to anyone interested in an exciting adventure.

Our family of 4 enjoyed a 10 day safari with Katella Uganda Safaris. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment, it exceeded all of our expectations. Florence was easy to communicate with and professional in every way. She really cared that we had a good time and even organised a cake for our daughters 18th birthday at one of the lodges. The lodges were all excellent and food plentiful and delicious. Its hard to chose which we liked the best ! Every encounter we had with every Ugandan was friendly and genuine. Our guide Robert was fantastic, he ensured we saw the big 5 and positioned us well to get great photos ! He was a excellent driver and person, and we felt safe with him. As soon as we met him we knew he was competent and we were in great hands. The gorilla experience was incredible as was the whole trip. On our first day at the rhino sanctuary we knew this trip was going to be phenomenal. I highly recommend Katella Ugandan Safaris, Florence and her team were amazing.

We had a great trip! We had a great driver. His name was Arafat. We learned a lot. We saw chimpanzees, gorillas, Golden monkeys, the coffee queen,banana man, center for women, lot's of crater lakes, swamp walk, a cave, and went to a bar. We saw lots just driving though the cities and villages. And Arafat is an excellent driver with a lot of knowledge to share.

An absolutely amazing experience with Katella - and specifically Florence, who helped make our Tanzania + Kenya dream a reality. A consummate professional, Florence handled all my questions from abroad (as a first time Australian traveller to Africa she patiently addressed all my concerns) to craft a perfect itinerary that covered all my must-sees, fell within my budget, and left me to enjoy a truly unforgettable vacation!

I'm not sure any review I could possibly write will capture just how amazing Florence of Katella Uganda Safaris is. She is the true Pearl of Africa ! ! ! Her communication and correspondence made me feel so comfortable with the decision I made to use this incredible company. And she was so accommodating with my desired itinerary. She truly made my dreams come true ❤️ She provided spectacular accommodations, fantastic game drives, with a professional driver that always made us feel safe (especially during the "African Massages" = really rough roads) Thank you Robert 😊 I was traveling with my Aunt and it was a special birthday for me. Florence made it special for so many reasons and I got to spend it with the magnificent mountain Gorillas in Bwindi. It was an overwhelming day of joy and happiness. Thank you so much Florence - you are a very special person. So sweet and kind. I'm grateful that our paths have crossed. To anyone reading this, if you are trying to make a decision, you will not regret choosing Katella Uganda Safaris ! ! !

What a pleasant surprise!!! We just enjoyed a terrific, affordable, well-rounded 12-day safari with Katella. I had no idea Uganda had so much to offer. We went for the gorillas, but saw hundreds of elephants, hippos, warthogs, giraffes, zebras, baboons, antelope, and more. And the people are beautiful, sweet, and accommodating. The whole experience was a pleasant surprise! I will be back and I’m bringing a group!

Fantastic woman owned local tour company! HIGHLY recommend booking your trip with Katella! Florence is fantastic to work with, I truly can’t say enough good things about her! She has great recommendations - everywhere we stayed was very comfortable, and we were blown away by the hospitality. She was also was able to coordinate some specific requests that we had (we really wanted to stay at both CTPH and Ride 4 a Woman in Buhoma / Bwindi before gorilla trekking). It is clear how much she cares about this work. I would recommend booking Katella to anyone!

You *must* go to Uganda with Katella! THIS IS A MUST-GO TRIP! Florence is the absolute queen of trip planning & communication. There is no better way to see Uganda (or any other country in Africa) than in the care of Katella. I have never had such an amazing and catered experience as this one. From day 1 to the very moment we boarded our plane to come back home, we were in good hands. Robert was the best guide! He amended our itinerary when necessary, was knowledgeable and friendly, and let us sleep in silence in the backseat as we bumped along in national parks between activities. We felt safe and cared for the entire time. The people of Uganda are warm, welcoming, and friendly, and Robert was no exception! Chimpanzee tracking, lion tracking, and mountain gorilla trekking were all hands-down life-changing experiences. To see and be with these animals up close was amazing. I wish I could relive every day of the trip over again. Definitely spend your money to make your trip longer if you can! I wish our trip was 3x as long :)

The trip of a lifetime! I cannot say enough about how amazing my experience was with Katella. It was undoubtedly one of the best experiences I've had in life! This was my first trip to Africa, and although I had few expectations of what the time would offer, the time I enjoyed in Uganda was far above anything I could have ever hoped to expect. Florence not only organized an amazing itinerary - no stone was unturned in terms of accommodation and adventure, but she warmly greeted us upon arrival and truly made my family and I feel most welcome in such a new and unfamiliar place. Our driver Robert was an invaluable piece of my family's trip. His knowledge of the land - it's wildlife, the history, etc., and his willingness to share everything with us made for such a rich experience. Robert is not just incredibly professional, but friendly as well. Nearing the end of our trip, all we wished for was another week of driving around the country with Robert's guidance. We also had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Arafat, another driver with Katella. By this point, near the end of our trip, it came as no surprise that yet another amazing human worked as a driver with Katella. Arafat graciously took time out of his day to have lunch with us while we waited on a long layover. The amount of cultural and ecological information he was able to share with us in such a short time was both incredible and so appreciated. No matter who you find yourself booked with at Katella, you can consider yourself lucky. While I'm sure there are many fantastic organizers in the area, I will forever recommend Katella to anyone and everyone I speak with. If you're searching for an unforgettable experience, with amazing people, I can say that Katella Uganda Safaris are the ones who will provide just that. If you're on the fence - get off. Book your trip now!

Wonderful experience with best tour company ever! If you are thinking of visiting Africa, go to Uganda and go with Katella Uganda Safaris! Florence, the owner, helped me plan for our trip beginning a year ago and she communicates immediately and was so helpful ! She met us as we arrived and we immediately felt like “ family”. We chose mid- range lodges and each one was beautiful with wonderful staff. We also loved our guide Robert, who we trusted implicitly . We saw chimps, lions, elephants, hippos, leopard( thanks to Robert’s keen eye), hippos, babboons, colobus monkeys, and hundreds of birds. We ended our trip with the gorilla trek in Bwindi Impenetrable forest- truly an otherworldly experience. We can’t imagine a better tour company, with such personal attention from Florence ( who checked in with us often on the trip) and better driver/guide/ man- of- all trades than Robert. The people of Uganda will win your heart, and to a one remind us that kindness prevails in this world.

Solo female travels in Uganda and Rwanda My trip with the Katella guide Arafat was so awesome! I got to do incredible trekking with chimpanzees and mountain gorillas and also got to do a game drive and spend time out on the boat all to see amazing wild animals (including elephants, lions, hippos to name a few more) all in their natural habitats. Florence kindly planned the trip for me to match my very tight timeframe and all the things I wanted to fit in, she was so kind, super quick to respond and SO helpful even helping me out with my visa delays! I spent 5 days touring around with Arafat who was my guide, he was very professional, friendly, informative and as a solo female traveller I felt comfortable around him and I would happily do another trip with him in future and recommend him (and Katella Safaris) to others 😊

Amazing! I found Florence (Katella’s owner) to be very responsive, organized and honest. She planned our itinerary and was very flexible about our special dietary request (vegan). Also, when I changed my mind (several times) as we planned our trip she was professional and helpful. The trip itself was amazing. We saw all of the animals we hoped to see and many more. We also had some meaningful experiences with Ugandan people who lived in the villages we visited. In researching prices I found Katella to be very, very reasonable. It’s well worth making the effort to visit Uganda. And, I highly recommend Katella.

Extraordinary gorilla experience I came across Flora's company through a women's FB travel page and was intrigued. In my dealings prior to visit all communications was helpul and prompt. From my collection from Kigali airport by my guide Arafat I felt in safe hands. It was a long but delightful drive to Rushaga in Uganda and borders were no problem. The lodge was excellent (Rushaga Gorilla Haven). The treking was fantastic. It was extremely well organised and staffed. I was driven to a briefing point and we were put into groups. After perhaps an hours trek through the forest we came across a family of gorillas. These had been located and reported to our guide by earlier trackers to ensure sightings. We remained with the gorillas for an hour and I was only a few feet away at times. This was the highlight. There are other experiences and entertainment offered including the most energetic ladies dancing I have ever seen. It was all wonderful and authentic.
