He is extremely well organized and flexible, replying promptly to emails, making useful suggestions, and giving choices and recommendations of itinerary and accommodation.

Once in Uganda our safety, enjoyment, and wishes were always paramount.

On safari, he is a skillful and knowledgeable guide, familiar with the area, the birds and animals, and on good terms with his fellow guides, the Rangers, and lodge staff.

As a driver and companion, he is very personable, approachable, and friendly - important on the long drives between destinations.

We thoroughly recommend him and hope to return to Uganda to use his services again.

Bosco picked me up in Kampala, drove me safely to Bwindi and arranged accommodations at an awesome place called Rushaga Gorilla camp.

Even though it was the "budget" option the room was quite comfortable, had hot running water for showering and the food was great.

The dinner and lunch were an extra cost but both were very reasonably priced.

I got quotes from several different safari companies, and Enchanted Uganda Safaris had by far the best price.
