Brilliant Uganda helped organise a 10 day trip for our family. Communication was good and they answered all of our questions quickly. The trip itself was perfect for us and they took lots of time to help us understand the details.

I contacted Brilliant Uganda about a safari tour and within 24 hours they had turned around a great trip for me. They arranged a 3 day tour to the Gorillas for me. I hope to come back to see more of what is an amazing country.
Kiera February 2019
We're both well travelled both in and out of Africa and we both agree Uganda has left the biggest impression on us. Tracking the Gorillas was wonderful, and our guide was professional and enthusiastic throughout.

Mark and the team were really helpful and I had a fantastic time. The trip ran smoothly and I was happy with the lodges and hotels. The wildlife at Murchison and queen elizabeth park were particularly good. Thanks for organising this for us.

Incredible trek to Margherita peak. After doing Kili last year I wanted another challenge and Uganda did not disappoint. Awesome experience.

Incredible trip. I've come home to a very jealous family! Thank you for all of your hard work. I absolutely loved the trip and couldn't have hoped for a better itinerary.
