We went on the most amazing Safari (in Uganda) over Christmas break. Since Srini described the Safari so well in his own review, I will simply concur completely! What I want to add to his fantastic review (of Vivid Adventure Safaris) is that my life has completely changed since going to Uganda. I am happy and feel quite blessed to have taken a chance on this company to show us Uganda. Vivid Adventure Safaris provided an experience that delivered as promised. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about our incredible Ugandan Trip and wish I could go back. I highly recommend this company; I would be glad to speak to anyone with questions regarding Hannington and Vivid Adventure Safaris. It is absolutely worth it.
Our encounter on a 15-day safari with Hannington and the Gorillas of the highlands was an amazing experience. I have had the opportunity to have visited the African Sub Sahara many times. You travel long distances but its worth it to sit in the jungle just 10-12 feet away from a Silver Back and his extended family. There such beautiful animals. Not sure if they get as much out of us trekking the mountains to find them, but we sure got the right boxes ticket! The chimps are fun loving and take you on a chase. One minute there in front of you then behind you, then above you in the trees. They love playing games with you ! Lodge accommodation en-route was excellent from small boutique properties to resort style. It varies considerably subject to where you wish to visit but all were clean, comfortable and meals taken in house on tour were all good. I highly recommend this company and Hannington.
We went on 4-day safari with Vivid Adventure Safaris in the last weekend of February 2018. We visited Queen Elizabeth national park and Bwindi Impenetrable national park. The nature was very beautiful, and Hannington let us take pictures if we asked for it. The accommodation was very good, and we had excellent food wherever we went.
The National parks are worth a visit when you go to the Pearl of Africa. To summarise it all, It was an experience we would not have missed. We highly recommend this company.
We did a 9-day, four national parks with this company in December 2017. Everything was organised by email some months in advance. Hannington, the owner, was prompt in his correspondence and was accommodating of our requests. Once he obtained the chimpanzee and gorilla tracking permits, he promptly emailed us copies. Once we arrived in Kampala, we had a vehicle waiting at the airport that took us at the hotel directly. The next day we left on our safari. Many of the meals and bottled water along with lodge accommodation was included as well the driver and the vehicle. All park entrance fees was paid for. We really did not have to pay for anything more. There were a couple of issues with lodges with regard to our medical needs and Hannington worked with us and the lodge to resolve the issues. We did not see the tree climbing lions but Hannington made an extra effort to find them (but we still could not). The chimps and gorillas were the main attraction for us - both those went flawlessly.
Overall, I highly recommend this company and Hannington. He is eager to please his customers and will deliver as promised. The vehicle was reliable and did not breakdown even once despite the rough roads in parts of the journey. Hannington joined us (along with the driver) for the whole safari to make sure everything went smoothly. I thought this is a sign of him going above and beyond what is required of him
There are many companies in Uganda and when booking from far away, it is difficult to know who is reliable. In our experience, this company and Hannington were very reliable. We were very happy with our decision. The trip itself was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Srini, it was great having you over, we too loved every minute of it. Thank you for choosing Vivid adventure safaris. Looking forward to your next trip with us
