Thanks to a wonderful customized itinerary and with great support from Annabel Uwi, the owner and the manager of Gazelle Company and an amazing guide, Bob Magezi, they made the trip an exciting adventure! Safaris was amazing, stays was great, rides pleasant!
Excellent service throughout the planning stage and till the drop off stage. The trip and all the activities were just as promised, and even better than expected. All round awesome experience. I will be using the company again for both trips within Uganda and international ones. It was a lifetime Pleasure and beautiful memories with Gazelle Safaris Africa.
We travelled twice with Gazelle: first to Murchison Falls and a year later to Queen Elizabeth National Park, from Entebbe. The trip was organised very well, good recommendations were made but our needs and preferences were also taken into account in a flexible way. Anne was very clear with communication and very receptive resolving all unexpected situations. Two fantastic weeks in Uganda!
