I arranged a four-day safari with Hakuna Matata over the internet. I was traveling on business and I was impressed that they did not charge me a single supplement. The communication with their office was very fast. After establishing a departure date I provided the 50% deposit via Western Union without a problem. They picked me up exactly when they said they would. Because I was traveling alone, I had a private safari van and driver/guide. My driver/guide provided excellent information about the land and people. In the Queen Elizabeth National Park, he got me as close to the animals as possible and let me spend as long or as short a time as I wanted in any one particular spot. A pride of lions walked directly in front of our car, which was spectacular. Hakuna Matata provided exactly what they described in the itinerary. I felt they were honest and treated me well. I would definitely recommend them to others.

From start to finish everything was perfectly organised. We booked with short notice for the 3 day Queen Elizabeth Safari tour but correspondence with Ken was always swift and he answered any queries fully. Our driver Moses was exceptional, going well above his responsibilities as a driver and truly caring and making sure we had the best time possible as well as being informative about Uganda during the drive to and from. Our Safari guide Innocent was great and had a vast knowledge of the local fauna and flora. The Engiri lodge was stunning, right in the heart of the Savannah but still serving up some of the best food we had all trip and the staff were always friendly. Amongst the Safari we went on a boat tour of Lake George and chimpanzee tracking which added another dimension to the trip and were both very well organised. We both felt that we covered a week's work in the 3 days. Great value for money - Couldn't recommend it highly enough!!

Very uncomplicated communication via WhatsApp. Great service. Good accomodation and food. The Safari itself was a blast. We've seen a lion family with 4 lion babys, a leopard, elephants, buffalos, lots of giraffes ... all from close distance. Joseph was a great driver and guide.

The safari operator Kennedy had everything organised and made us feel extremely safe. We did a 3 day tour of Queen Elizabith National Park. He was very well informed and spoke excellent english. Even though we were camping, we were still very comfortable. Meals were all provided.
Since that trip my friend has been back for another tour and I intend to do the same in the near future. All in all we had a fantastic time and can't recommend this tour enough! Thanks Ken

Amazing Adveture in Africa
During our tour with Hakuna Matata safaris in Rwanda and Uganda all was well organized and our guide managed all for us perfectly. So we can enjoy a spectacular holiday with so many fantastic and impressing moments. We saw all kind of wild animals so close to us. A real safari feeling!!! The accomodations had been placed inbetween with great jungle noises in the night, spectacular views and very nice stuff. If you are planning a tour through Uganda, Rwanda and Congo, please contact Matoke tours and you will have an incredible journey.

Hakuna Matata a very well organized and Planed Safaris in Queen Elizabethe, Bwindi, Murchison Falls and Kidepo Nationa park, in Uganda, They Gave us Innocent the best guide you can have, we didn't have to do anything except enjoying and relaxing everything.
The accommodations were very beautiful and the locations well chosen. And the game drives were excellent! The gorilla's were the max but also the country itself had much of beauty to offer We learned a lot of the country from our Guide. The food was always very tasteful, and there was always an alternative for the vegetarians of our group.
We are already thinking about the next trip to Congo and probably we will go again with Hakuna Matata.

Last Mouth I went with my Friends for a 8 day round trip through Uganda, Rwanda and Congo with Hakuna Matata Safaris and the whole journey was beyond expectations.We booked a private tour to Climb Nyiragongo Volcano, gorilla track and chimpanzees. Everything was perfect for us. Communication in advance was good, our driver knew all the important places, additional info about the country and about the animals. We really enjoyed travelling with Hakuna Matata Company! During the trip everything was arranged perfectas well ( good hotels, good food etc).The Gorilla Trekking was an absolute highlight but also the other places impressed with the variety of landscapes and wildlife. There is nothing to complain about!

My Safaris in Rwanda was great! Fantastic country and travel experience. Ken arranged all transportation and that was comfortable. A professional car driver and tour guide showed us all the highlights of Rwanda and explained a lot about the country. The selected lodges were all very atmospheric, super clean and located at the most beautiful spots. Also, the food was excellent during the trip. And last but not the least: Service. This was more than great! All the transfers were arranged accordingly too. Go to Rwanda and use Hakuna Matata

Me and a friend traveled with Hakuna Matata to see the mountain gorillas in Virunga NP, DRC. Hakuna Matata team arranged everything for us: our hotel in Goma, our permits for the best price (we approached 2 other companies before we heard of Hakuna Matata), they had us picked up at the Rwanda/DRC border and drove us to the
NP and to the DRC/Uganda border, they tour-guided us on our hike to the gorillas, Ken the owner of hakuna Matata, filmed the gorillas for us with our own handy-cam while we were busy taking pictures, and he even made us dinner at his own house in Goma! I wouldn't dare to go to DRC at that time on my own (there was the need for armed UN forces to have a control post at the Rwanda/DRC border). Thanks to Ken of Hakuna Matata I felt safe and welcomed.
Without him I would not have seen wild mountain gorillas in my life so

Ken at Hakuna Matata was amazing when we visited the Rwanda/Goma/Uganda area. Not only did he work with me to set up an excellent itinerary, but he also helped us re-schedule and modify our plans when there were unrelated issues with our Gorilla Permits. On a one-day notice and through a personal contact of his, we were able to audible and travel to Uganda for our trek when Rwanda didn't work out. He was also the local expert-to-know for our trip up the Nyiragongo crater -- one of the most breathtaking experiences of my life!
I highly recommend Hakuna Matata 's services, and will trust them again when we return to the area

Oh my God Where do I begin? Ken was amazing at helping me plan this trip. I started in DRC and climbed Mount Nyiragongo and then a safari in Rwanda and Uganda. This was the best trip I have ever been on and Ken really helped to ensure everything was planned perfectly. From the shuttles from the airports, to the climb to the safari everything was planned perfectly. All I had to do was show up :)
