Spectacular week in Uganda gorilla trekking and rafting the Nile!!!
Mar 2020 • Family
We had not been to Uganda, but Morgan at 1000 Shades of Green was recommended to us. He thoughtfully answered all of our questions and set up a fabulous trip with great lodges, superior guides and amazing activities. He happily provided options at various price levels to accommodate our budget. Our primary guide for the gorilla trekking days near Kisoro, Jackson, was perfect! We loved him. Excellent English. He knows the area well. He was happy to alter our plans based on our preferences. Jackson constantly found small ways to make our trip special. For example, one of the people in our group is a veterinarian — once Jackson learned this he reached out to one of the local gorilla vets to come to our lodge to chat with her. He solved all of our problems with a smile.

Simply The Best
Feb 2019 • Friends
My daughter & I traveled with this company for 11 days getting to explore 5 national parks as well as the rhino sanctuary, a gorilla & chipanzee trek! Our Driver, Nasser, was efficient, knowledgeable,courteous and fun! It was a busy itinerary but well worth it.
We booked our trip with Morgan who is very responsive to any questions you may have.
Uganda is beautiful, both culturally and scenically. The people are hard working and kind. Are there “issues”? Sure, but those are everywhere you travel!.
If you want a tour company that cares about you and are traveling to East Africa make sure you get in touch with 1000 Shades of Green

Green, Colorful and Socio-economic Contrasts - but "pearl of Africa" cities suffer from poor air quality
Jan 2019 • Solo
In the "pearl of Africa" - Morgan from the "go green safari" helped me expertly and efficiently to put a great trip together touring Southern Uganda including a savanna safari and gorilla tracking (while my wife was working in a medical clinic - i did the "spouse program"). They provided a very knowledgeable, kind and skilled "driver" (Joseph) for my 7-day tour - with him I had unique opportunities to experience close contact with the amazing Ugandan people, landscape and wild animals. See also excellent tour book: The Bradt Guide to Uganda by P. Briggs - It is an eye-opener for "first world" people. You see bare-foot children working in roadside mines crushing stones or carrying heavy water canisters along busy roads, etc. to luxury cars and hotels with electric fences and high walls. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this trip and thanks to Joseph - as he told me - I was able to get into a gorilla-tracking group that required "only" about 2-3 hours+ of forest path tracking to see the gorilla family with a gorilla newborn - a truly moving lifetime experience - the rangers apparently can put you in different "fitness and age" tracking groups so you don't have to walk 6 - 12 hours necessarily - ask for it.
Disabilities: For people with ambulatory impairments Uganda's public streets, sidewalks and buildings will be a great or impossible challenge- almost all are not handicap-friendly - I have seen only one tourist with post stroke sequelae requiring a wheel-chair, he was traveling with family/friends.
Caution! If you have respiratory problems or disease! Stay out of Kampala and other traffic centers - the air quality is really poor and problematic from the dirty diesel cars, taxis (boda bodas), trucks, buses or burning trash and agricultural fields, charcoal firing, etc.... The black plumes from the vehicles are a clear reminder - what gets banned from the EU and USA streets goes to Africa with its socio-economic disadvantages.
Suggestion: Maybe "go green safari" could be a leader and should consider using hybrid touring vehicles to be an example for others - or at least use newer technology diesel engines with particulate filters - even if this would increase the price, it would be a great contribution to environmentally-conscious travelers.
Talk with Morgan and Joseph to make your trip a life-time experience, safe

Great Safari company - helped plan a great getaway
Jan 2019 • Friends
I have used Morgan and 1000 Shades of Green for approximately ten medical mission teams to Uganda. He arranges everything from pick up from the airport to hotel accommodations on the front and back end of our trip. I also book safaris with him. We have booked safaris at Queen Elizabeth, Mihingo Lodge and wonderful gorilla trekking tours. The drivers are knowledgeable, punctual and provide a safe and wonderful experience for all. I would highly recommend 1000 Shades of Green to anyone traveling to Uganda.

Arranged travel, safaris, hotels and transportion
Jan 2019 • Business
This company was awesome. Reliable and punctual. We had a large group on a medical mission. They arranged pre and post destination hotels. They arranged safaris for us on the weekend. The rates were extremely reasonable and the service top notch. I would definitely recommend using them for a worry free trip to Uganda.

1000 Shades of Awesome
Dec 2018 • Couples
We travelled to southern Uganda on the Gorilla, Chimpanzee and Wildlife trip for 10 days with 1000 Shades of Green December 2018/January 2019 and it was wonderful! Before leaving Australia, our biggest concern was for our safety, however, at no time during the tour did we feel unsafe. The people of Uganda are polite and friendly and it was lovely to explore their villages and meet them. We were even lucky enough to have a couple of groups perform for us.

The wildlife that we saw was spectacular and the guides had a keen eye for spotting animals that were in some interesting hiding places. We saw tree climbing lions, hippos, elephants, giraffe, gorillas, impala, topi, elands, water bucks, kobs, zebras, crocodiles, buffalo, dwarf mongoose, warthogs (pumbas), numerous birds and various monkies including baboons and chimpanzees. The guides were very knowledgeable about the wildlife we saw, the people we met and the villages we passed. They made sure that they went out of their way to accomodate us and our needs and supplied us with plenty of bottled water.

I would recommend:
*taking some sweets and school supplies to give out to children in the villages you visit. Notebooks and pens are highly valued
*training for the gorilla and chimps treks as these are very physical activities
*downloading a currency conversion app like Currency Plus
*taking a camera with a 300mm+ zoom lens and at least 2 camera batteries as the power supply can sometimes be unreliable
*having at least 1 power bank in case of power outage
*advising family that you won't always have access to internet to check in with them
