Epic Uganda drove me to and from lake Bunyonyi, and trust me, I had a lot of fun on this tour despite the fact that I was alone. I was kept engaged with thrilling stories about our destination.
I went to Queen Elizabeth National Park with a group of students from the U.S. We had a great time there. Epic Uganda is the best tour operator. Their guides are really friendly and kind. He showed me around town and gave me the best advice.
My family and I did a successfull gorilla trekking in Bwindi NP. We had a reliable and safe driver on the long and exhausting drive, and he was friendly all the time.
