    Incredible luxury private adventure tour of Uganda

    My husband and I did a fifteen day private tour of Uganda with Vumbua Africa from the UK. It was the most incredible experience of our lives. The itinerary was perfect- we rafted the Upper Nile, saw vast herds of game in Kidepo Valley, visited a local village, saw leopard at Murchison Falls, watched thousands of birds from a boat in Queen Elizabeth National park, trekked for chimpanzees in Kibale, encountered Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi and so so much more. The luxury accommodation was amazing- we got to stay in some of the most unique lodges in Africa. They also organized some lovely special experiences at most places- like a completely private, multi-course breakfast in the shade of a wild fig tree, right in wilderness of Kidepo. All our activities were organised and were with the best, safest and most experienced providers. They really know the best of the best in Uganda, and exactly what works. For the whole trip our guide, Raymond, facilitated everything, took great care of us, gave us a fantastically in depth understanding of everything we saw, and drove us for the whole trip in a safari-converted Land Cruiser. I cannot speak highly enough of him- he was fantastic. Anything that went wrong, he had solved before we even noticed (for example an important bridge in QENP was unexpectedly closed, but before we even arrived he had arranged for a contact of his to take us over the river in a private boat. It was seamless). This was the trip of a lifetime, we fell in love with Uganda and were very sorry to have to leave. Vumbua Africa, and everyone who made our trip possible were perfect. I absolutely recommend and would travel again in a heartbeat!

    Highly recommend! Nice Person!

    Brenda was awesome. She guided my family of 10 and fitted in like a family member. She was very knowledgeable, flexible, patient and friendly. She made sure we got to see all of the most important landmarks and experience the diversity of Cape Town. She set up our hike and bike rides that were flawless. In setting up our activities, she was very responsive over quite a number of months as she and my wife planned the details of our adventures by e-mail and some phone. Highly recommend! Nice Person!

    Brenda made their short time in Cape Town magical!

    Our daughter and her friend arrived in Cape Town after having their Semester at Sea cancelled. They only had one day in town before heading home, and with only one days notice Brenda stepped in and gave them a beautiful tour. Brenda made their short time in Cape Town magical and sent them home with smiles on their faces wanting to come back for more. We will surelt make our way to Cape Town, with our daughter and son, and will be contacting Brenda to plan a tour for the whole family.

    We highly recommend Brenda!

    Brenda was my family guide showing us the highlights of Cape Town over 3 days. She was efficient, punctual, and most of all, passionate about sharing Cape Town with us. She looked into every detail of our trip, making sure we were comfortable and happy, even providing us with water and snacks to make sure we were never hungry or thirsty. She was constantly in contact with me prior to the trip to ensure we had our own personalised trip.

    Private Cape Town City Tour

    Had a wonderful day with Brenda. Brenda was in communication with us days before our tour and arrived early on the day of our tour. Because we had a group tour planned already, Brenda immediately discussed with us what we would do as to not duplicate our visits. Brenda gave us an experience to make us feel like a local. We had lunch at a restaurant of our choice and visited a unique coffee shop as well as historical sights. She is very knowledgeable and makes sure the tour is what you want it to be!

    Private Table Mountain Tour, Cape Town

    We had a great time touring the city of Cape Town with our great guide, Brenda D. She gave great tips and was efficient with time management and knows great food! We travelled with two toddlers and two senior citizens and she was very patient and accommodating to all different needs. Thank you very much for sharing your great love of Cape Town, Miss Brenda. And thank you for being so very very nice to the kids and us. God bless you always!

    Private Cape Town City Tour

    Nice tour! Brenda took me to downtown Cape Town, we walked through the city, the company gardens, Malay houses and the Waterfront. The bad thing was the weather that did not allow us to go to the top of Table Mountain. However, helped me book a helicopter tour along the coast….loved it! She was attentive and open to my suggestions. I also wanted to check out the library and book stores…love books!

    The Garden Route and Surroundings Tour

    My husband and I spent four days with Brenda touring the Garden Route in South Africa. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and the places we visited and stayed. I felt like we were on a road trip with a family member. We laughed and talked the whole time and had enjoyable meals together. We would definitely rate this as one of the most memorable and enjoyable trips we have ever taken. We would give the highest rating to this delightful lady!

    JUST WOW! Such an amazing experience! Vumbua Africa UK Ltd/The Dodo Group organizations were super transparent and kind and helped a lot in the preparation of the trip. There was absolutely everything provided that you could ask for. From a very nice accommodation, park entry fees, super delicious food from our own safari cook, pick-up at home and transfer & last but not least a truly competent and fun safari guide who made it possible for us to see every animal we wanted to see! Zebras, Elephants, Lions, Giraffe, Flamingos, Buffalo's, Leopard... All in all for an extremely fair price!! It was insane! Thank you so much

Brenda, as I told you in person when we were saying our goodbyes, YOU WERE AN AMAZING FIND, meaning in Portuguese, VOCE FOI UM ACHADO!!! Can't wait to go back to South Africa and see you! Lots of love! Larissa, Racchel and Pedro
