How was your guide?


Hello, we are 5 people, aged 76, 43, 18, 15 and 6 years. We are arriving Entebbe 12.10. at 2.45 am and departing 21.10. at 3.40 am. So we have 9 days in total in Uganda, but 1.day we might be quite tired as we arrive at early morning. What kind of options do you have? Is everything possible for the 6 year old too? And what is the price for the 6 year old?

Waiting for an answer...
