Our driver was very nice and knowledgeable which made the experience even better. It's a busy day and many hours by car, but it's worth it. The visit to Lake Mburo National Park was absolutely amazing. Something that can be a little better is information about what is included at breakfast and lunch because we had to make individual orders, it was a bit unclear. Overall a packed day with lots of great impressions.

A totally beautiful, day-filling trip. With good all-round support and good contact. It could only be spent a little more time in the park, which is hardly possible with the great program. All in all a great day!!! Very happy to be back soon!

Our guide Arthur showed us really great and interesting things. His German was extremely good!!! He was great at answering all questions. We had a lot of fun.
