I found the information about Gorillas Homeland Safaris first on Facebook and after on their website. What I saw was enough to give me an idea of their seriousness as a company. The first contact with Davis was easy and he seemed to me to be a man I could trust. I never changed my mind after that, he is a great guy. As my wife, Anne, and I are birders, I asked for a 23 days stay oriented on birding. Davis told me that Alex, the bird guide, was excellent. I can tell you now he was more than excellent. He knows the birds, the chips, the calls, the behavior and the habitats where to find them. He is absolutely exceptional when it comes time to spot birds or animals. It was my 6th trip to Africa and I met very good guides and Alex is at the top of them. I'm not kidding. And the man himself is also easy going. Always in a good mood, always willing to show you more and more things. We went to the main hotspots in the country and we tallied 483 different species of birds in 21 full days of birding. The habitations were well located, near the NP or the interesting habitats, and the food was excellent everywhere. The vehicle used, a 4X4 with open roof, was fantastic inside the national parks. And Alex was also a very good driver. The only problem we encountered during this trip was that we did not get our luggages at our arrival in Entebbe. As we have a very tight schedule, it was impossible for us to stay in Entebbe, waiting for our things. So Davis took care of all this and he delivered to us our luggages 2 days after when we were in a remote place, far from the airport. I can tell you that Davis made everything to ensure that our stay was at the best, every day. I encourage any good birders and travellers to contact Davis for a memorable trip to Uganda. A trip memorable for the good reasons.

Dear safari lovers and all who are planning holidays in East Africa with the assistance of Gorillas Homeland Safaris. It is pretty likely you will pick this tour company as they have a very nice website, perfect ratings, its manager Mr. Davis Tukamushaba has several FB profiles all packed with only positive comments, and he is very quick in replying to potential customers’ inquiries. All this creates a great first impression. A month ago we returned from our 8-day safari in Rwanda and Uganda organized by Davis and his team. Wherein the word „organized” is a big exaggeration, as in terms of organizing our trip was a complete disaster. It all started on the first night. After having landed at the Kigali airport around midnight we found that no one was waiting for us. When we, at last, reached the hotel we learned that Mr. Tukamushaba “had forgotten” to book our stay. In the following days it was only worse. Our personal guide who was to accompany us during the whole trip was late for the first meeting by 6 hours. Despite Mr. Tukamushaba’s claim that all our accommodations and entrances to the national parks had been already paid (in fact we had paid 70 percent of the whole trip in advance ) - ever and again it turned out that something was not paid or even booked. Eventually Davis would always pay – on short notice - only when we started the alarm on Messenger. A critical moment was on the day when we were driving 10 hours to the Nyungwe Forest National Park in the south of Rwanda for chimpanzee tracking only to learn that our names are not on the list. This time nothing could be done since all had already been booked. We missed the chimpanzee tracking, which was supposed to be one of the highlights. In the long run Davis returned us the money for the chimpanzees but it didn’t really comfort us. For eight days Davis Tukamushaba - who was in touch with us on the phone - kept on making up extraordinary stories about exceptional misunderstandings and unbelievable coincidences which resulted in this series of failures. Instead of relaxing we were stressed every night. We decided not to keep this story for ourselves. We feel obliged to share it because of the tourists’ solidarity. My friend Izabela is a PR Manager at an American company, I am a journalist and a non-fiction writer. You’ll find us on Facebook, feel free to contact us if you want to learn more details. Our unpleasant experience does not change the fact that Rwanda and Uganda are beautiful and fascinating countries. You will meet there many professional and kind people. Simply you’d better think twice before you go there with Gorillas Homeland ​Safaris. Katarzyna Surmiak-Domańska and Izabela Szumielewicz

Had an excellent tour and gorilla trekking experience with Davis as the driver and Homeland Safaris. Not knowing who to book with, I shopped around online a bit, but ended up with Homeland Safaris. They were quick to respond to messages, and easy to deal with. I have recommended them to a few colleagues who have also had good experiences. I look forward to my next Murchinson Falls adventure!

Davis and Alex...too many wonderful things to put into words here. Suffice it to say that my every expectation was exceeded. On top of that, no dealing with other tourists except for Chimp and Gorilla trekking. Just you and two of the best guides in the business. Davis knew I was a birder, and he brought along Eagle Eye Alex, who can spot a bird ANYwhere, along with any other kind of animal(hyenas near dark...their DEN, when NONE of us could see what he was seeing) you could possibly imagine. They were kind, and funny...I highly recommend.
