INFORMATION ABOUT UGANDA
As Uganda's loyal visitors will testify, its safaris are an intoxicating affair with a greater diversity of animals, people and landscapes than any other African destination. That doesn't mean however, that we take our foot even slightly off the gas. Far from it. Just ask our guests who'd previously explored the Tanzania wilderness with our guide, Elvis. At their request we flew the brilliant and passionate wildlife specialist to Kampala, where he joined them to track gorillas in the lush mountain rainforest of Bwindi.
Whatever the request to make your Abercrombie & Kent Ugandan safari and gorilla trekking holiday that extra bit special, we'll do our very best to help. Our acclaimed multi-centre East Africa team has spent over fifty years offering luxury travel across the region. A one stop shop with over 400 staff, many of them multi-lingual, it offers seamless trans-African itineraries and superb driver guides selected for their specialties from bird watching to families to first time safari-goers, along with 24-hour emergency contact and the best vehicle fleet around.

A huge thank you for a truly wonderful holiday. Thank you for all your hard work leading up to and during our stay in Kenya. You have been really great throughout. The A&K experience exceeded our expectations and we felt very relaxed and comfortable knowing that we were in good hands. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and were so good with the kids - it made our holiday truly memorable. A special mention to Patricia who met us in Nairobi both ends and Duncan who took such good care of us at the mobile camp.
Thank you for the gifts - the children loved the catapult! Well actually Eric loved the catapult the kids haven't had a change to play with it yet!!
As Eric said on the phone - good news - we loved the holiday - bad news (for him) - I will be in touch to discuss another trip for next year!! I hope you and all the team at A&K have a great Christmas and a very festive New Year!
Kind regards, Arabella, Eric, Jake and Tate
