Booked a 5 day trip with Hajarah and he was very helpful. Already from the airport pick-up I was warmly welcomed by Katie and Alex, they have done everything to make it as pleasant as possible for my trip. Nothing was too much and they even made proposals. The lodges of Bwindi and Queen Elizabeth were well cared for with excellent meals. Friendly and helpful staff. The visit to the gorillas / chimpanzee, game drive and everything else was an amazing experience in this beautiful country. Will definitely recommend Simba African Expeditions to everyone. This because of the experience and the professionalism of this tour operator. I would therefore like to thank them for making such an experience.
