I love how everything is planned for you.
Just returned home from our tour with Zarcar Gorilla Adventures for 2 weeks around Uganda. Zarcar Safaris has been consistent throughout our travels and did not disappoint us at any time. I love how everything is planned for you and there is someone there to take care of any hiccups arise – if they do – it is usually hotel related and hardly an issue.
15 days and 6 National Parks – it was a go-go trip but I felt it was a great way to see all the places we went to. Arrived in Entebbe, then off to Kampala and Ziwa Rhino Santuary to make our way to Murchison Falls National Park. Then in Kibale National park for a couple of night before heading to the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Then through the Famous Gorilla Trekking home Bwindi to Mgahinga Park for the rare Golden Monkey tracking, to Lake Bunyonyi in Kabale, to Lake Mburo National, to Switzerland then to Kampala and back to Entebbe.
Our Tour Director – Robert – was really nice and was very knowledgeable about all the destinations we visited. And again Zarcar Safaris always gets the BEST local expect guides to take you around the attractions. One really sticks out with us – David in Queen Elizabeth National Park. He was so dynamic, knowledgeable and so passionate about this park. We could have listened / learned from him for the days. We were sad to have to leave him and the beautiful country of Uganda.
I cannot say enough about the wonderful people you get to travel with. I am so thankful that you get an opportunity to meet other travelers from around the world and they became good friends. You share so many experiences with them – you miss them when you go home!!!
Zarcar Safaris has been such a wonderful travel company for us that we are looking at out second tour for next June – we have 2 more tours on our list for years to come. We have priced out what lodging, car hire/transportation, food would cost and it just about the same, but you have none of the worry, it is all done for you. But most importantly, I cannot express this enough, you cannot put a price on the valuable experience and the history/local knowledge you get from your Tour Directors. We would have missed out on so much information if it had not been for them. I would like to think we are very experienced and adventurous travelers, but since travelling with Zarcar, we always say ourselves; Yeah we could do it on our own, but how much would we miss by not knowing the area and who would drive us around?!?!
Thank you Zarcar Gorilla Adventures! For the lifetime of memories and new friends you have helped place into our lives. For recommendations feel free to contact me directly. Hope to see you again next year! And the year after that!!
