The lodge was a magnificent experience (even though we did not know that the electricity went off in the night - but we overcame that problem). The staff, the lodge, the food - were excellent beyond words!! But the main reason for this email is to make you aware of what an EXCELLENT guide we had - Baker. We can not praise enough what a great man he is. He is so incredibly knowledgeable about his country and all the animals and birds. He drove with immense skill and care and we felt very safe at all times with him on the Ugandan roads. He was an excellent guide on all our safari trips, not only making us feel very safe in some potentially precarious situations (especially with elephants!), but also was able to impart such a wealth of knowledge regarding all the birds and animals we saw and the local history of the people and the country as we travelled through it to and from the QE National Park.
We can honestly say that Baker really did make all the difference to our experience and we know it would not have been the same had we not had him. When we return to Uganda for another safari, we will be enquiring as to his availability we can assure you!!
