Hi, my wife and I did a 4 day Safari this past December with them and I can assure you they are First Class all the way. We flew into Entebbe Airport and started from there, but I'm sure they will accommodate picking you up at any location you choose. The safari van trips to the National Parks takes some time (6+ hours), but lots to see along the way, and the Safari van you travel in is very comfortable and was dedicated just to me and my wife. Our driver was Ananias, so when you book the tour, do request him. He is great and so knowledgeable about Africa and all the wildlife and fauna. Be sure to get a Yellow Fever shot and have the shot record with you, before you go, as this is a requirement to have before you get off the airplane in Uganda. Cate is the reservationist you will be conversing with in emails Prime Safari and will do everything for you to assure you get the dates you want. Tell her Peter advised you to contact her. You just tell her what wildlife you are interested in seeing and how many days you want to be there, and she takes it from there. Our 3rd day on Safari was spent Gorilla Trekking. This was the highlight of our safari as you get "up close and personal" with these beauties, and you a very safe the entire time as the guides and scouts are right there with you to get you into position for some fantastic photo's. Be sure you bring good hiking shoes as you have to trek down a mountain for about 2 hours to get to the valley where the Gorilla's live should you decide to do this. Uganda is the only country you can see Gorilla's in the wild. All the other days were spent at two other National Parks (a 6-7 hour drive to each park) and we saw just about every animal you can think of. There was even a 2 hour water safari as part of our tour, where you see Hippo's, crocs, elephants, etc. The overnight accommodations are very very comfortable, complete with hot/cold running water, showers, etc, and done in a log cabin type decor. All the best. You won't go wrong with Prime Safari & Tours.
