Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Once upon a time in Queen Elizabeth National Park Uganda was a giant african savanna elephant called Sadam believed to have migrated from Congo. During an evening game drive we spotted Sadam from a far, i was guiding German tourists who requested to wait on track for Sadam to come near. I remember he just suddenly started charging at us from a far, in a blink of an eye i could see Sadam by our safari vehicle, clients screaming WAIT WAIT we need photos...as the driver guide sped away from Sadam. Long story short i said my last prayer and hide under the dash board. To this day i do not know how we survived Sadam. This happened in 2012!"

Recent trip reviews for Vivian
Great guide, poor accommodation choices
Nov 10 - Dec 3, 2022
Gideon, our guide was great, and provided excellent service, and should have been consulted when Vivian was developing our itinerary. The micro-lodges Vivian booked us into were not necessarily the best choices for us, and we suspect a conflict of interest. The Budda Guest House in particular was well out of the way, causing extra travel time.

A fantastic trip to Rwanda!
Aug 10 - Aug 17, 2022
Our trip was amazing and we are very grateful for all the hard work that went into planning it! We were able to see all the sites that we wanted to and Francis, our tour guide, was spectacular throughout the trip. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and resourceful in making sure that the trip went smoothly—even when we encountered car troubles. The trip went very well, and I have no major complaints.
The only recommendation I would have for future people taking this trip is that they be... read more
Cradle of life, Tanzania
Jul 11 - Jul 22, 2022
My wife and I recently returned from our bucket list trip to Tanzania in East Africa on Saturday July 23rd. What an amazing experience.

Fantastic Uganda trip thanks to KimKim/Natureissan and Vivian!
Jan 22 - Feb 1, 2020
We just returned from an amazing trip to Uganda. Vivian was a true pleasure to work with. She is super responsive and planned us a first-class trip with one week notice. She arranged for the best guide ever in Hamid, who stopped us up at the airport and showed us all over his country for 12 days. We saw the rare African shoebill, chimpanzees in Kibale, lions and elephant in QE park, rare golden monkeys in MGhahinga--each a special trek or exploration. We stayed in beautiful lodges, especially... read more
