• Rainbow over Ndali-Kasenda Lake in Uganda

"Fantastic tour by a knowledgable company"

Posted on Sat July 27, 2019.

We toured the west of Uganda with Kombi Nation Tours and had an excellent, flawless tour. Rachel and Steve who run the company both live in Kampala and know the locations inside out so they can tailor the trip perfectly to your needs. We were travelling with a toddler and Rachel took our safety really seriously and found the best lodges, car, driver etc to suite our needs.
We had some excellent activities on our trip which were recommended by Rachel. The first was the predator tracking in Queen Elizabeth NP, where you have one of the research team join your safari drive and you track the lions by their collars. You're allowed to go off road with them so we saw 18 lions up close and learnt much more about their behaviour than on a standard drive. The second was the 'surprise' sundowner where we were met on a beautiful lookout in Ishasha with a full bar and canapés!
While planning the tour we had great information from Kombi Nation and tweaked the tour as we wanted. During the tour Rachel checked in with our driver Frank daily and they solved any minor issues (things like route changes due to the weather).
The lodges chosen were all brilliant. We were really impressed with the food and service, our highlights were Ishasha Wilderness Camp and Rwakobo Rock. Rachel visits them all regularly so knows which are run well and where there are management changes.
Overall a wonderful 10day tour!
