Our family of 5 (2 adults, 16-girl, 14-boy, 12-girl) plus another adult booked a tour with McBern Tours and Travel for a 2 day adventure. Day 1 included visits to Jinja, the source of the Nile, and a few other stops. Day 2 was a safari Murchison Falls National Park. We had a friendly, knowledgable tour guide on both days (different drivers). The vehicles (different vehicles) were appropriate for the different trips. The choice of lodging by McBern was suitable for our family. The guide knew Murchison Falls pretty well, so we were able to locate many animals and see the beautiful park. On the return trip the guide stopped at a local market where we did some shopping. That was fascinating. He also purchased a fresh pineapple and served it to us during our lunch break. Overall this company provided excellent service at a reasonable price.
