Our tour (4 ladies) took us from Kampala to Jinja, Moroto, Kidepo N.P., Murchison Falls N.P., Ziwa, Kibale Forest, Fort Portal, Semuliki, Queen Elisabeth N.P. , Ishasha, Bwindi, Lake Mburo and back to Entebbe. Thanks to Kule for the organisation of this trip and thanks to Caleb our guide/driver for taking good care of our little Belgian group. Great guide, perfect driver. I was already in Uganda in 2014 (group of 6) but wanted to go back (missed some parts of my trip due to a broken leg). A visit of Kampala is a must, very chaotic but later on you can enjoy nature. Jinja visit an orphanage an the source of the Nile. In Moroto we went to visit the Karamojong people and learned a lot of their way of traditional life (this is a must). Going to Kidepo NP brings you close to the border of Sudan but this N.P. is great. We stayed 3 nights in the Banda's of UWA (basic accomodation but clean, great staff). Good game drive (lion) and great game walk. From there to Murchison Fall NP, be sure to hike to the top of the Falls and enjoy the boat ride (hippo, crocs, birds, .........). From there to Ziwa rhino sanctuary, great place. During the game walk we saw 7 rhino's (for the walk you get rubber boots). From their direction Fort Portal. Kibale Forest and the chimps, crater walk and in Semuliki walk to the hot springs (very hot !. From there direction Queen Elisabeth NP. Thanks to an optional evening game drive we saw the lions (jus after a kill). And the next day we saw the leopard. Also the boat ride (Kazinga) was perfect : hippo's, crocs, elephants, lot of birds. From there to Ishasha, only park where we didn't see a lot of animals, but thats nature. From there to Bwindi, bad roads to get there but as soon as you met the gorilla's you forget the roads. Sunny day that day, so no need to put on a rain coat. Good walking shoes and the help of a porter can make the difference. By hiring a porter you support the local villages. From there to lake Mburo, a small park Very good game walk and also game drive. This is also our last park to enjoy nature. From there we leave direction Entebbe ; lunch enroute (Equator) and last shopping for souvenirs Uganda, pearl of Africa ? Difficult to say when you like the whole continent. Uganda offers you great landscapes, a variety of animals, ............. But one thing is certain, the people are the pearl of Uganda. Brigitte - Diana - Juliana - Ivette (Belgium)

Great tour with well expierenced tourguide. Gorillas, chimpansees, lions on trees, elephants - we saw them all. My guide knew where to go and find the animals. He very well explained the way of live in Uganda, the history and whats going on at the moment. Gorilla visit was perfect organised. THe same with the chimpansee tracking. Hotels comfortable und with great view.

We did a tour through Uganda with Kule Nason: gorilla tracking, many visits to National parks, rhinos, hippos - all of it. Kule was our guide and driver and we could not have asked for a better one: knowledgeable, friendly, careful, punctual and always there with a big smile. One day we will come back but only if Kule is available to travel with us again - he is simply the best (being a tour guide myself - although in Europe - I think I am in the position to say that).

I traveled along with a school group for a engineering service project in the Kasese district. Kule and the entire Pearl Eco Safaris team made our trip an excellent one. Kule was very helpful in planning the trip, as we had no prior experience in Uganda, and he was extremely helpful while we were in country. Kule is the man that knows everyone! If there was ever an issue, Kule would ensure that it got resolved smoothly. He is very knowledgeable of the national parks, and was an excellent guide throughout the entire trip. He constantly went above and beyond his duties to make sure that we were comfortable and happy. Our group will definitely be booking Kule as our guide when we travel to Uganda again!

I visited Uganda as part of a university student group. Kule Nason was a great guide, he was very knowledgeable about all of the places we visited in Uganda, from the national parks and safari animals to the best places to stay and eat. He was accommodating to our flexible schedule and budget for the trip and was willing to go the extra mile to make everything work out. Pearl Eco Safaris handled our requests perfectly and we couldn't ask for a better experience.
