A testimonial by Dominique from Switzerland. March 2013
I knew I wanted to travel the pearl (southwest) of Uganda and couldn’t be happier to have asked Agnes/Maamjombo for advice. Considering the numerous possibilities this country has to offer, Agnes recommended us the very places to visit without sparing us the details about alternative solutions, just in order for us to be able to decide on actual grounds. One can tell that she has seen and visited all the places and speaks from experience.
The fact that she has lived and worked with the Gorrillas in Bwindi NP and her deep knowledge of primates gives you an overall impression of confidence in the travels ahead. As an alternative to the expensive Gorilla trekking, Agnes recommended the Chimp Habituation Experience in Kibale NP and we loved it! You get a full day with these impressive animals and pay less than half of the price of the Gorilla trekking.
Upon our return from the southwest I told Agnes I was up for River Rafting on the Nile and – not surprisingly – she organized the trip to Jinja just for the next day! Not only did she know the people in charge and was therefore able to set up the experience right away, but also one can tell that she loves these activities herself so much that she regularly decides to join her clients for the trip. We had an amazing river rafting day on the Nile!
I would like to thank Agnes and her company for the good advice and would recommend her to everyone who’s is about to visit Uganda and in need of a valued opinion about this beautiful country.
