WHAT MAKES NGONI SAFARIS SPECIAL

WHAT MAKES US SPECIAL

SMALL
GROUPS Our groups comprise no more than 18 participants plus a gay or gay-friendly Ngoni safaris Leader. With Ngoni safaris’ small-group flexibility, you can do more and see more at an easier pace, enjoy the peace and quiet of that special place you’ve always dreamed of, and actually hear the local guide! As food always plays an important role in the local cultural experience, we avoid large hotel buffets in favour of smaller, often fabulous local restaurants on days when your evening meal is included.

SINGLE
TRAVELLERS Travelling single? Our guaranteed “share programme” saves you money if you’re willing to share a room. A single supplement can be added if you prefer to be guaranteed your own room. Either way, singles never feel “left out” on our tours!

OUR SERVICES
Our itineraries are available from our website, by e-mail, post or fax. Our well-travelled, experienced sales staff is very good at discerning your needs and determining your suitability for a particular programme.
 
OUR TRAVELERS
Our clients comprise a very special bunch of people: interesting, curious, active, and often very well-travelled gay or gay-friendly couples, friends, and singles. Ages are as diverse as backgrounds. Some of us are in our 30s, while others are 70 or more. Our travellers love to experience new places, peoples, cuisines, philosophies and points-of-view in a relaxed social environment where they can feel free to be themselves.

We also attract adventurous types who want to experience the exotic with the added security of expert guidance that ensures that they can be themselves while minding local sensitivities in places (as yet) unaccustomed to openly gay travellers.

Our English-speaking tours attract travellers from all over Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand. By and large our trips are male-dominated, but we are thrilled when our lesbian sisters join us.

OUR ITINERARIES
Spontaneity and flexibility are integral aspects of our trips, as are organization and efficient time management. Each of our itineraries is carefully crafted to be as detailed, accurate, and appropriately paced as possible. We also want to allow for special events and experiences that cannot always be planned.

A small group can easily venture off the “beaten path” and get around by special means to interesting places that enrich the travel experience. Home visits and local markets provide special insight into the lives of the local people.

Good itineraries are, however, always evolving. Thanks to our insightful clients and tireless Tour Leaders, we are constantly revamping existing trips and brainstorming new and exciting touring ideas.

TRIP STYLES

CLASSIC
Three and four-star hotel based, “soft adventure” trips that concentrate on the culture, history, and natural attributes of our destination.

Though these are not “active” trips as such, you should be prepared for full days with some early starts and some walking on uneven surfaces through villages, cities, and archaeological sites.

TRAMP
Trips that are more physical than our Classic series. All walking and hiking trips are included in the category, as well as programs that involve camping or sailing.

Accessing more remote areas means that our accommodation may be of a simpler standard or involve camping in some locales.

POSH
A series of luxury experiences with gorgeous 5-star accommodations and lots of pampering.

TRIP LEVELS

LEVEL 1
No particular physical activity is involved other than town/city walks and short walks to dinners and sites of interest, some of which are large.

LEVEL 2
These are particularly busy tours that feature a lot of moving around, sometimes by train; short journeys on local transport. Walking tours of towns and cities are leisurely but you should be prepared to be on your feet for several hours. Some of our cultural trips that occur at high altitude and/or require greater independence with baggage handling also fall into this category.

LEVEL 3
Most weekend hikers should have no trouble with our moderate hikes. Some walking at moderate-to-high elevations and an occasional long day with a pass crossing may be involved. Although no previous experience is required, being physically fit and active are important.

WHAT ABOUT ACCOMMODATION
The vast majority of our accommodation choices worldwide reflect our clients’ insistence on clean, well-located, three- and four-star properties with private bath facilities.

Though all hotels, inns and lodges are carefully chosen, our tours are not always about accommodation in the same way as beach holidays are: a hotel is sometimes just place to spend a night or two, not the main focus of your trip.

Though some adventures and locations involve a certain element of “roughing it”, it all adds to the experience and doesn’t have to be arduous.

Ngoni Safaris Uganda

I went on an 11 day safari visiting Kampala, Jinja, Lake Mburo NP, Bwindi NP, Queen Elizabeth NP and Kibale NP. Communications with Ngoni were prompt and easy from the start. As soon as I made my booking, Sedrick contacted me through WhatsApp and guided me through the rest of the process. Leading up to the tour he made sure I was well-prepared to begin. He was always very clear and friendly. Service was exceptional. I had the pleasure of going on this safari with three members of Ngoni's staff - Sedrick, Nelson and Joel. These guys made my comfort their priority from the moment we met. Whether it was checking if I was okay with the accommodations or making sure I always had a bottle of water, I always felt like I was being well taken care of. Nelson is an excellent guide. His knowledge about the flora and fauna of Uganda was extensive, always able to answer any questions I had and was eager to teach - it's obvious that he has a great love for his country and it's environment and is eager to share this love with his clients. My experience with Ngoni and Uganda surpassed all expectations I had. Absolutely amazing, and thanks to the guys at Ngoni it feels like a new home - can't wait to come back and visit. Webale, brothers!

Sedrick was unique and stood out from the rest in the high quality communication he provided since the first inquiry. He called me to provide information about the itinerary and see if I had any questions even before booking the tour. We communicated through WhatsApp for any other questions that came to mind after that call. After picking me up from the airport, he and Pilot (additional tour guide) provided plenty of information about the country to give me some context and we started our long drive to the impenetrable forest. The food was delicious with many options; the accommodation was very clean with exceptional service; and the transportation from Entebbe to Bwindi park was very comfortable (although long). As a solo female traveler, both tour guides (Sedrick and Pilot) did an exceptional job at enduring I accomplished everything intended to in Uganda, and always made me feel safe. I highly recommend to book your safari with this company because the quality and professionalism will not let you down.

I was going on a gorilla safari with my friend and this was going to be the first ever safari for the both of us. Luckily, the communication with the office was super easy and we got answers to all of the questions we needed. The driver / guide (Sedrick) was very professional and funny and made our time very pleasant. Also, he had a proper knowledge of the local area close to the Mgahinga national park and he promptly spoke some 7 languages which we thought was super positive. The safari was surely the highlight of out East African trip!

My Team and I did a five day trip, including Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls and Kidepo. It was truly an incredible experience. Our guide, Sedrick, was knowledgeable, skilled in driving in some challenging settings and just plain fun to hang out with for five days. The lodging was perfect, especially Savannah Lodge. The tents and beds were high quality. The views were spectacular. Meals were delicious and varied. I recommend Ngoni safaris Uganda with all my heart and soul!

Our six days trip was amazing. The driver/guide had an incredible knowledge of animal and bird-life and are so interesting to talk to. His driving skills through lashing rain and massive puddles was admirable! The cooks managed to produce varied and delicious meals from the kitchen, which we ate both at accommodation or roadside when we were travelling from one place to another . At all times we felt safe and well-looked after. All in all, an incredible experience, due not only to the abundance of wildlife we were lucky enough to see, but also to the great efforts put to have our Safari a better one . The safari was full of fun. Traveling with ngoni safaris is my life time memorable experience and I highly recommend it to travellers who would love to visit uganda or EastAfrica for holidays, vacations or Adventure.. Even five stars are too small .
