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!
