There is plenty to say about Ubon Safari. They absolutely shine on service and execution and most importantly price. Let me give you a run down.
A knowledgeable guide/driver will be waiting for you at the airport in our case it was Kilimanjaro. We did the Lake Manyara/Serengeti/Ngorogoro crater 3 night /4 days all at the Serena Lodges (highly recommended) and we opted for the private jeep (highly recommended).
Our guides name was Phillip, he was great and knew the terrain well with over 10 years of experience. Its very important to discuss your desires with him right out of the gates so he can deliver the right safari. We wanted to see all the big animals or as they as they say the big 5.
Be prepared to be tossed around as the roads can be bumpy, it is a safari after all. You will encounter an array of animals and majestic landscapes that times out shine the animals. My advice is get up early of possible wear very comfortable clothing that fits loose and have your gourmet breakfast and head out into the wild. You will have box lunches(might want to let them know what you like to eat) on the road and be at your next luxury accommodations by 5-6 pm to relax and unwind.
The Serena Lodges (free wifi) are they way to go if possible (the views are amazing!) The service level is very high and the food is top notch.
Ubon will call or email you to make sure your trip is excellent and any issues are resolved. In our case it was seamless and perfect. I really feel you do not have to wait to experience a luxury safari.
We are very happy we went and we will be booking another one in the near future. Ubon will make it work for anyone.
Lastly animals are unpredictable be patient and it will happen. Hakuna Matata- Don’t worry, be happy!
