The trip.me way of travel
Everything perfect and as planned. Maybe newer cars could be recommended.
Our trip to Uganda was to celebrate my 60th birthday with my husband and son. Prior to leaving, I was a little anxious, not really knowing what to expect. On arrival, we never looked back. The trip exceeded all expectations in every way. The 14 day itinerary Sander put together for us was nothing short of brilliant. Our driver Bob what can we say, absolutely the best and so passionate about what he does. Always going that extra mile to give us a wonderful experience. It was Bob who suggested we do the lion tracking at Queen Elizabeth which we would all highly recommend. We were so keen to see a hippo grazing in the evening at Murchison Falls Lodge that one of the workers came to our lodge after we had gone to bed to tell us he had found two.
We would all highly recommend doing the gorilla habituation program as suggested by Sander. So worth the extra cost with the money going to a good cause. The time we had with these special primates is in an unforgettable and unique experience. We travel extensively and can honestly say that this trip is the best EVER. Uganda holds a piece of our hearts, a truly special place filled with beautiful people. Look no further than Grassrootz if you are planning a trip to Uganda. Sander was always professional and so prompt when replying to any queries we had and was only too willing to assist in anyway possible, including, in conjunction with my husband, a birthday cake at Bwinfi for my actual birthday. A birthday I don’t think I will ever be able to top. Thank you Sander and Bob for the most amazing trip EVER! You just can’t beat nature!

We enjoyed the trip very much. Communication beforehand was very good.
The two guides who accompanied us worked hard to make the safari successful and went beyond expectations
We had a memorable trip to Rwanda and Uganda with Sander’s tour company Grassroots. It was a pleasure communicating with him as he made the whole process very easy. Questions were answered very quickly, there was a lot of back and forth to get our trip scheduled for our convenience and Sander was very professional and accommodating .
Thé activities and the game parks chosen were a perfect fit for our family; lots of hikes and walks. We met different village communities and had a glimpse of their lives. Plus of course thé safaris and walk in the game park were spectacular; The Gorilla and chimpanzee trekking was beyond compare, to see these magnificent animals in their natural setting was very special. We also got to see the tree climbing lions in action. The tracking safari was of special significance Since it allowed us to get -up close and personal to the lions and a leopard.
Excellent Choice of accommodation - the tree house was our favourite; next to a river with a thousand nests nearby- wonderful to just sit there and watch the process of nest building , courtship among a variety of birds just a few metres away.
Wonderful, unforgettable holiday.
