An Unforgettable Trip

My mom and I had a wonderful experience in Uganda with Davis. Our first time visiting the county and we were unsure of what type of excursion we should do with our 3 days of free time, prior to a wedding that we were in the country for. Davis laid out several options for us and was very flexible in helping us with our needs as far as transportation / lodging / food /etc, as well as meeting us at our budget. We ended up visiting Queen Elizabeth National park for a game drive and it did not disappoint - we saw many animals (elephants, lions, hippos, monkey, etc).

If I were to visit the country again I would book through Davis again and allow more time (1 week+) to see more parks or do gorilla trekking.

Thank you Davis for an unforgettable trip!

The most incredible journey

We had the most incredible journey with our guide Davis, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Davis is not only a passionate animal lover but also a wealth of knowledge about the natural world. Choosing to explore with this local organization was truly a game-changer for us. Normally, we prefer to travel without guides in African countries, but this experience opened our eyes to a whole new level of adventure and discovery.
What sets this organization apart is their genuine commitment to tailoring the experience to your preferences. We expressed our desire to stay exclusively at lodges under local management, and they made sure that every accommodation exceeded our expectations. From the lodges themselves to the delicious meals, everything was absolutely perfect.
Thanks to Davis and the team, we had an authentic and enriching vacation. It's not just about seeing the sights; it's about truly experiencing the beauty of the land and its people. If you're considering a trip with a local touch, I can't recommend this organization enough. Thank you, Davis, for making our journey unforgettable!

Africa, Gorillas 10 Days Best Safari

A friend and I booked a safari with Gorillas Homeland Safaris for a full week of non-stop touring. Davis was our guide, and I wholeheartedly recommend him! Each location and stop was breathtaking! We visited the Rhino sanctuary, toured by boat, the Nile (hippos and crocs), visited the Chimpanzee forest, and hung out on the savannah watching elephants, giraffes, warthogs, and water buffalo (to name just a few of the many large herds of animals). We also took a small boat ride to see an endangered shoebill nestled in the papyrus-filled lake. Our trip ended with a very up close and unbelievably long encounter with a Silverback family:) Along the way, Davis allowed us to meet /visit with a small community, where we had the privilege to engage directly with women, children, and business leaders. We loved our trip, loved Davis, and came away with a love for Uganda. Note:: Never saw a mosquito, or tsetse fly, but we were well prepared:-) Safe, very hospitable, and affordable. Bring cash for tips, smaller businesses, and side trips. Much thanks to Davis for allowing us to embrace his country and culture. Uganda rocks!!

GHS 8 Days Gorillas and the game Safari (Sheila Moschetti)

This was a bucket list trip for me to see the Silverback Gorillas. Davis and Luke delivered. They were both kind and very patient driving 9 woman around for 8 days. The Chimpanzee Guest House was beautiful! I loved it. The private cabins with porches and magnificent views was breathtaking. The staff and food was outstanding! I could have stayed there for the whole trip. It was quite and relaxing. I would definitely stay there again.

GHS 8 Days to the Game and Gorillas Safari (Lisa Weigold)

Seabrook, Texas, USA
"We spent a week in Uganda for an African Safari. It was one of the best trips ever! We had a guided daily safari tour by Davis that took us through the entire country. We had multiple close, but safe envounters with baboons, wart hogs, elephants, rhinos, bucks, chimpanzees, water buffalo, and giraffes. We also saw the prehistoric, but endangered shoebill (and one offspring)! We took a boat tour to visit the Nile, viewing a beautiful waterfall, along with crocs, hippos, and numerous birds. Davis also afforded us an opportunity to meet one afternoon with a few community leaders at one of the villages near our lodge. Soooo many highlights of our trip! Ultimately, we came for the gorillas, and the end of our safari had us trekking up a mountain to locate a silverback family. We found them and wow, just WOW. It was incredible! Uganda, Africa is home to so many beautiful animals, and we met so many people working hard to preserve their homes /habitats. This tour highlighted it all. Going to Africa?? Choose Davis - he will not disappoint. It really was the trip of a lifetime!"

GHS 28 GREAT BIRDING TRIP IN UGANDA (Real Bisson and Carrolle)

Great Birding in Uganda
"In July 2022, we had a great trip in Uganda with Gorillas Homeland Safaris (GHS). After two years of covid pandemia we were trilled to finally going to Uganda. Four of us visited the country for birding with Alex, a wonderful birding guide working with GHS. After discussion with Davis, we agreed for a 28-day tour. Overall we saw 485 species of birds, a success! Thanks to our great Alex who always made his best to find the bird missing on our list. It was a delight to visit national parks for wildlife. The face to face with gorillas and chimpanzees has been an unforgettable experience! Accommodations and food were great.

I am a photographer, and Davis and our guide, Alex, made certain we saw every animal
possible. I have some health issues, and both were so kind and patient with my
limitations. The sheer volume of birds and other wildlife to photograph was beyond
my wildest expectations. I highly recommend!

I loved the volume of animals we were able to see but I mostly enjoyed the Uganda people that I met. Our guides, porters , hotel staff everyone was very enlightening and interesting. Getting to know the Uganda culture firsthand sets me back to think that here in America we think it’s so rough — they do it everyday- with a smile.



Life changing trip made possible by the expertise and hospitality of Gorillas Homeland Safaris!

My wife and I did the 3 day Murchison Falls Safari and were quite simply blown away by the amazing guides who made this the trip of a life time! Davis and Meddie thank you so much! We hope to someday get back to do a longer trip and see the gorillas!
We appreciated being picked up and dropped off at our Hotel in Kampala, it made the trip so much easier knowing you had all the planning done and all we had to do was enjoy the scenery! We are so thankful for the great service you provided us..we honestly felt like we were travelling with two good friends who cared about our experience first and foremost.
We were so lucky to have elephants walk right in front of us with their amazing. And to also get to see giraffes/Hartbeests/warthogs/baboons/crocs/hippos/rhinos/hyenas/jackal/oribis/buffalos/waterbucks and so much more including all the bird species...just wow! Thanks to you so much for this trip!!!

I have been to Africa over 20 times and all over. This by far was the best trip I’ve ever taken. Davis and Meddy knew everyone everywhere we went. I always felt safe with them. The lodges they picked for us were amazing. Anything we mentioned we might want they changed plans to accommodate us. We were talking about wanting a pool soon and the very next lodge they made sure had a pool. The gorillas were everything I ever wanted. All the extra tours that were available had something to do for everyone. The staff at the lodges were friendly and so helpful. The rooms were clean and the scenery was breathtaking. I can’t wait to go back again and I won’t go with anyone else but Davis and Meddy.



This was not our first trip to Africa, so we had some high expectations. Davis and
Robert exceeded them all with their concern for our comfort and ability to customize
the trip to meet our desires (mostly lots of birds and animals to view and
photograph)! Our accommodations, meals and travel were lovely. Every lodge was
different and beautiful. Last but not least, it was an excellent value for our
investment. The cost for our 10-day safari was half the cost of our six-day safari
in Tanzania the year before. And of course there were the chimpanzees and mountain
gorillas, which you can't see anywhere else. We would easily do this trip again -
perhaps longer stays at each lodge so we could settle in!



Fun and easily customized tour. This is a fantastic opportunity and very affordable way to see the mountain gorillas as well as every other animal you can imagine on a Safari.

At all times Davis was fun, welcoming, and professional to provide me with an outstanding trip. My second trip with Davis and Gorillas Homeland Safaris proved to be as spectacular as the first. Walking with rhinos in the sanctuary Murchison Falls spectacular water falls, “out of Africa “ boat trip up the Nile and outstanding games drives Kibale for the forest walk and chimps
Lake Mburo for savannah animals and finally Jinja with source of the Nile and horseback riding along its banks! All game drives delivered great animal viewing with few other vehicles. Big lion pride, many many elephants and a leopard with fresh kill. The accommodation was terrific in all locations . I had elephants by the pool, monkeys in the forest camp and spectacular views for miles! Davis worked hard to provide all the details for a superb trip.

It was a wonderful experience to travel with Gorillas Homeland Safaris and see Gorillas up close.
I travelled last year in a small group to Uganda and we were taken good care of by Gorilla Homeland Safaris. We felt safe and secure with our experienced guides. Our accommodation and transport vehicle were excellent. It exceeded our expectations.



I just returned from a week safari in Uganda including gorilla trek in Bwindi all booked with Gorillas Homeland Safaris. As a traveler, most people look for two things. Product and Personality. Gorillas Homeland Safaris excelled on both counts. The scenery was stunning, the animals were fascinating, and the people of Uganda were wonderful. My personal guides/drive surpassed expectations. From the warm wonderful smiles greeting me at the airport, through our informative game drives, Davis and Meddy made sure I had a great time. I loved the excitement of seeing the tree climbing lions in the branches right over our vehicle; of seeing all the hippos in the river channel and water holes; of the elephants crossing ahead and behind our vehicle.
I left my heart in Uganda.

Davis is an excellent tour guide. He really took care of us, and that's what you need in foreign location. The accommodations were fantastic. We slept at lodges located in the forested areas. We could see elephants, in the distance, from our porch. What an unexpected treat. I'm a lacto-ovo-pesco vegetarian and I had no problems with meals being prepared without meat. On top of that, the meals were delicious. I highly recommend touring with Gorillas Homeland Safaris.
