Global Interlink Travel Services Ltd.

Overall rating: 

Superb natural attractions offer visitors to East Africa some very special and memorable experiences. The region contains a rich diversity of terrain and wildlife, from the lush rainforests which clad the volcanic mountains in western Uganda, home of the magnificent mountain gorillas, to the sparkling double chain of lakes in central Kenya which, enriched by minerals, throng with millions of flamingos. The historic towns of Zanzibar, Mombasa, Lamu and Malindi, all conjure images of the past when traders from the east developed and settled along the entire coastal strip.

We have designed our packages to cater to a variety of preferences, ranging from adventure filled trekking safaris to relaxing beach holidays. We can also tailor-make packages in East Africa, as well as a host of other regions, to suit individual requirements.

Whether you want to travel with a large group, or on an exclusive tailor-made safari with family or friends, Global Interlink will ensure that your tour is an unforgettable adventure and the holiday of a lifetime.

And the tour did not disappoint. Bwindi is a beautiful place as was the Chameleon Lodge where I stayed. All the staff were friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent as were the local activities - both relaxing and adventurous...as you wish.

Fantastic journey - Mohit and team, thank you!

I had such a successful safari in Uganda two years ago with my son, including an other-worldly gorilla experience in Bwindi, that when it came time to schedule a visit to Kenya and Madagascar and a return visit to Uganda with my two daughters, Global Interlink was my team. We spent six weeks exploring the three countries and Mohit and his team made all of the arrangements. His expertise is unparalleled, and he is patient in calming pre-trip jitters and answering questions along the way. Global Interlink was recommended to me by a member of the U.S. State Department; now I, in turn, recommended them to everyone I know who is planning a visit to East Africa. Can't wait for our next adventure!

Kidepo Valley National Park

Mohit Advani of Global Interlink Travel Services worked with me to set up a recent safari to Kidepo Valley National Park in northeast Uganda. He was recomneded by a friend, handled all the details by email, and was great to work with, finding us a great deal on our stay at Apoka Lodge with the off-season rates and helping us to navigate the challenging details of transport there and back. Below is my review of our stay. Hats off to Mohit!

My son and I recently visited Apoka Lodge for the first time as the capstone to a spring break trip to Uganda visiting friends serving in the Gulu area. And what a capstone it was! Although I hadn’t been on safari in a number of years, I have traveled pretty extensively in a dozen African countries, and this was without a doubt one of the all-time highlights. (The length/detail of my comments is befitting how highly I rate this experience!)

1) The Setting: it doesn’t get anymore prototypically “wild Africa” than this! Kidepo National Park lies near the crossroads of some of the remotest corners of South Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya. As such, it’s not an easy stop for the casual traveler. But for those who persevere in getting there, the payoff is a vast, unspoiled landscape of rugged beauty, countless animals, and very, very few other people. Indeed, during our three night stay there were only 2-4 other guests besides my son and I and our friends (a family of 4). During two of our six game drives, we never even saw another vehicle! The quiet and immensity of the landscape was magical—and that’s before even mentioning the animals.

A note on travel: through our friends (not Mohit) we hired a driver (200K Ugandan shillings/day + gas and fees) to drive us from Gulu. The roads were a mix of finished tarmac and bumpy gravel, but all-in-all not too bad. Overall travel time was about 5 hours, including a stop for lunch. On the way home, Mohit arranged for my son and I paid the extra fee to charter an Aerolink flight (1.5 hrs direct) back to Entebbe in order to save the 11-12 hour road journey and make our international flight home that evening. You can save on this pretty high cost by flying on regularly scheduled itinerary or sharing the plane with a minimum of four total passengers.

2) The Sights: As part of our all-inclusive package, we enjoyed six different game viewing activities of our choosing: 5 drives and one walking safari, mostly in the Narus River valley near the lodge. We had the same outstanding guide (Patrick) and vehicle (an open-air Land Cruiser with 12 seats) to ourselves throughout. On the very first drive, we saw most of the most prevalent species would we see over the course of our stay (zebras, elephants, warthogs, many species of gazelles/antelope, giraffes, cape buffalo, jackals), but the drives each had their own unique flavor and focus. We had to work harder to find a few lions, and eventually spotted a leopard on our last day. In between, we mixed up the activity by taking a morning game drive out to the very different landscape of the Kidepo Valley, spotting ostriches, and eating breakfast just across the border in South Sudan! Another afternoon we mixed in a visit to a local Karamajong village (where a former Apoka guide from the village led us on a cultural tour) and visited the remains of a vast, partially completed compound built into a rocky hillside by Idi Amin.

3) The Accommodations: As you can see from the Apoka Lodge website, it’s a first-class facility. Perhaps not as completely over-the-top high end as some of the luxury safari lodges in Kenya or elsewhere, but definitely 4-star in my view. The limitations were expected: limited electricity during certain hours only, weak, satellite-dependent wifi connection in the main lodge, and no A/C or fans to take the edge off of the muggy air at bedtime. But those are small (and appropriate) prices to pay for the experience of being utterly surrounded by vast swaths of wild African savannah and mountains. The individual bungalow units are beautifully if rustically appointed, amply supplied with full baths and hot showers, and all situated around the circumference of the property to maximize the sense of having your own private view. There’s even a tub that can drawn with a hot bubble bath to soak in while zebra and other animals walk by in the distance. There’s a game viewing tower, beautiful common area for meals, games, or drinks at the bar, and a delightfully cool pool hewn straight out of the granite rock!

4) The Hospitality: We felt utterly spoiled by the availability and attentiveness of the Apoka staff, who outnumbered us easily. (I don’t know what it’s like in the “high” season, but the roughly 10 unit maximum makes it likely that it would still be a similar feel). From our faithful guide, to our personal “butler” Alfred, to the assistants who escorted us to/from our bungalows after dark, to Cory the resort manager and the rest of his team, we felt like true guests in the best sense of the word. There was expert guidance to maximize our stay, turn-down and wakeup service in our rooms, special meal requests easily handled, and assistance in troubleshooting travel arrangements. And the food was incredible as well. I’m not sure how they do it, but there were delicious fresh salads, diverse ingredients, artfully prepared soups, and fine cuts of beef and fresh fish (likely compliments of the Aerolink service). 3-course meals with dessert with the norm, and wine/non-permium spirits included in the meals.

In sum, we cannot recommend Global Interlink and Apoka Lodge / Kidepo National Park highly enough! The all-inclusive price for three nights with a special off-season, buy-two-nights-get-one-free offer ($760 US for each of us) felt like a splurge, but also seemed to be a great value in the end. And the travel by road, though long, is not as arduous as it once was. If you can afford to go, I encourage you to visit for at least two or three nights, just to take in the relaxing atmosphere, but even one night here would be a memorable experience.

Mohit Advani, the owner, was extremely helpful in the preparation of the trip, answering many questions and helping us decide the best option. In Uganda, Grace, our driver/guide, was excellent in driving almost impossible roads :) and taking care of everything. We had an amazing time on safari. We were surprised by the Murchison Falls Park, which is very beautiful and less transited. And of course we loved the Gorilla trekking in Nkuringo. It is a 8-10 group of gorillas that are very habituated, so we could get very close to them. There are not as many predators as in other parks, but watching the elephants and giraffes bathing on the Nile was incredible. The experience of driving around the country and seeing thousands of kids going to school and so many people living close to the roads, being able to watch their every day life, was a highlight for us.
All in all, we would definitely recommend Global Interlink to organize a Uganda trip and we recommend Uganda for its combination of beauty, safari options and people.

We just returned from Uganda where we were doing missions and humanitarian work. We had a chance to do a 2 night Safari at Murchison Falls booked though Global Interlink owned and operated by Mohit Adbani. He and his company came highly recommended by a good friend in Uganda and we were not disappointed. We arranged to be picked up at our guest ranch enroute to the Park. Grace, our driver and guide, was on time, professional and very personable. We had the car and driver to ourselves so it turned out to be a private Safari. Very cool. We stayed at the Paara Lodge on the banks of the Nile river, which has great accommodations and is very close to the game drive roads. The park was full of beautiful animals and Grace did an outstanding job spotting game and introducing the area to us. We spotted many of the common animals up close and got to see a Leopard, which I understand, is not easy. Both days we saw lions, once while feeding on a fresh kill. On the afternoon of the second day we did the River Nile cruise to the Falls which is really a “water safari” and enjoyed it very much. All in all it was a great trip that came together very smoothly. I would highly recommend Mohit and his company Global Interlink and when booking ask for Grace. You won’t be disappointed.

Mohit Advani of Global Interlink was introduced to us by a well known Ugandan friend of ours. We were 11 adults in our Party and being born in Uganda wanted to visit Murchison falls and Queen Elizabeth Game parks - something we were not able to do whilst living in Uganda

Mohit Advani with his immense knowledge of Uganda Geography tailor made our Safari for seven days in a way we were able to fulfil our dream. The two Drivers who also acted as our Guides, became more like companions, all spoke very good English and had a very good knowledge of the Roads and parks we visited.

Our party was well pleased with both the Guides and all the accommodation arranged by Mohit who was in regular contact with our Guides during our tour. We were all vegetarians and Mohit ensured that our needs were catered for at all the lodges we visited. we were not disappointed - All the lodges prepared special meals for us. The only disappointment was that at QE and Ishasha we did not encounter much wildlife and didn't see any Lions. Obviously seeing wild animals especially predators is a matter of luck and not in anybody's control

We would have no hesitation in recommending Mohit Advani of Global Interlink and especially after our experience with this trip will certainly use his services to plan any future Safaris not only in Uganda but Kenya and Tanzania as well

Although I have been to East Africa before, but never Uganda. It felt challenging to plan all details In Uganda for a group of visitors, when I myself had not yet been to Uganda. Mohit was so responsive on email, and provided a great itinerary on paper, which also worked perfectly for us once we arrived in Uganda.

Bosco was our driver and Safari guide, and I can't say enough good things about him! Bosco made sure we were always comfortable, he was always on time, he was so knowlegable about the areas we visited and the animals on Safari - he was a true delight!

I would highly recommended Global Interlink, and will use their services the next time I am in Uganda.

When I learned he owned a travel agency in Uganda I told him I'd reach out to him when I was ready to plan my trip to Africa as my 7th and final continent to visit. I can't tell you how pleased I am that I did just that. Mohit was so patient and informative as I explored several options for my trip - finally helping me decide on a 3-part adventure that had me spend 5 days in Western Uganda for gorilla tracking, 6 days in Tanzania (Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater), and ending on the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar for 4 days.

Mohit and the team at Global Interlink not only made sure I had everything I needed prior to departure, they also ensured I was taken care of throughout the trip, even through a couple cancelled / rescheduled flights. All the guides, drivers, airport transfers, etc they set up for me were great and made me feel very safe and comfortable while in country on my own.

I would not hesitate to call on Mohit and his team again for my next African adventure. You will not find a more knowledgeable, professional, and helpful company to work with!

In July 2013, we asked Mohit Advani of Global Interlink to help us plan a one month trip around Uganda and Kenya. Mohit had been recommanded by a Ugandan friend and proved to be efficient and generous in answering our numerous emails, making recommandations and offering options to fit our needs. Our personalized tour started in mid August in Entebbe, then we moved to Bududa (where our daughter was spending a few months), to Murchison Falls Park and to Sipi Falls in Uganda; after that we entered Kenya, to visit the Elemantaita and Nukuru lakes, the Masaï Mara National Reserve, and finally to rest at Diani Beach on the Indian Ocean. Our main interest was bird watching, so we did not go to a gorilla trek. We had a wonderful trip, and the cost was much lower than the estimates we got from our Quebec based recommanded tour operators. The accomodation was excellent and our drivers and rangers were skilled and fun. We saw more than 200 spicies of birds and so many animals, including the Big Five !

The guides took us on drives in all parts of the park as well as in the conservancy next door, where we found a lioness in a tree. Our most phenomenal sighting was a pair or mating leopards who were disturbed by a hyena - not a typical sighting! The birding was also fantastic, including a pair of Verreaux Eagle Owls, various bee-eaters, and a variety of vultures and eagles. We came upon large herds of elephant, topi and Ugandan cob, though the herds are considerably smaller in the rainy season when grass and shrubs are in plentiful supply. From the start of planning through to completed execution the whole experience was fantastic thanks to Mohit's fast and comprehensive responses to all questions. He seeks to effectively and immediately address all needs and any concerns one may have. I was so satisfied that I'm using Global Interlink Travel Services for another trip this month!

Mohit was prompt to respond to my numerous questions by email, providing recommendations to ensure we saw as much as we could in the time allotted without over-committing! The cost estimates came in far lower than any of the U.S. based tour operators and having come as a recommendation, we were sold! What an amazing trip! Our driver was professional and fun, pointing out animals and landmarks of interest! (why did I never write a review in 2007?)

After a wonderful holiday in Uganda in 2007, we were excited to learn Global Interlink could also arrange a safari in Kenya. We prefer to use local operators and contacted Global Interlink and Mohit after they gained our trust on our Uganda adventure. As always, we wanted to see much more than our time allowed and Mohit was professional and prompt in responding to my inquiries, providing several options in Kenya, steering us away from over planning our time. From their recommendations in Kenya, we selected Sanctuary Olonana and we were not disappointed! Mohit treats us like friends each time we contact him and has always been flexible, prompt and professional. I recommend Global Interlink often (I just don't know a lot of people who have the privilege to go on safaris) and highly recommend Global Interlink!

Our accommodatioins in Entebee (Caribu Guest House) and at the Mohogany Lodge were excellent. Good food, friendly staff, and very comfortable rooms.

Our Trekking experience at the Impenetrable Forest was equally flawless. Our guides gave clear direction, accommodated the needs of our group and emphasized the importance of following rules for safety and environmental reasons. It was clear from the beginning that respect for the gorilla habitat was a high priority.

This was a trip of a life time and I highly recommend using Gobal Interlink as a travel agency.

We decided to go on the Gorilla trek after hearing about it from family and friends who had gone on the trek last year. Word around was that there is a waiting list of a year to get the permits. We were pleasantly surprised to get our permits within a couple of weeks to coincide the dates we were to be in Kampala. We took a flight into Kihihi early morning and were met at the airport by a safari van and a very eager driver. The drive to the Buhoma lodge was only 40 kms but it took us an hour and a half to get there as we took in the beauty of the landscape around us. The driver was very learned and knew everyting about the plants, to the birds. Buhomo lodge was fantastic and the food was exemplary. The rooms faced the Mbwindi forest and the views were breath taking. The staff at the lodge were very friendly and helpful. We were fortunate to sight the gorillas within half an hour into the forest and the one hour with them felt too short. The lodge had given us a packed lunch to eat in the forest which was quite nice and we were spoiled with a complimentary massage after our trek to soothe the sore feet. We highly recommend the Gorilla trek and Buhoma lodge to anyone looking for a great gorilla experience.
