Clients Reviews

  • Bart Bakker
    I've worked with Encounter Africa Safaris as local partner for a Dutch TV production. We did the research trip in November 2016. Edson and Torbert did the pre-production and took care of all logistic arrangements, as well as scouting locations/stories/people. It was a well organised research trip and I left the country with enough options to fill 3 episodes, if needed. Tolbert travelled with me during the research trip and was fun the have around. He took care of all the arrangements and was punctual and everything one would expect from a producer/driver. I would strongly recommend them for your visit (business or pleasure) to Uganda.

    We have organized a filming trip in the Northern of Uganda (area of refugee camps) very short notice. Edson was very helpful to get everything sorted before the departure of our crew and really thinks ahead. Communication with Encounter Africa Safaris went very smoothly and was very professional. They know what they are doing! On the ground our crew was very pleased with fixer Patrick.

    I have worked together with Encounter Africa Safaris on a Dutch TV production. EAF made all the arrangements like media cards, accommodation, transportation, permits etc. They are reliable and fun to work with. As tv productions most of the time turn out to be a bit hectic, and especially a specific "outdoor/rafting" kind of show like we did, i must say they did very well. Even last minute chances and request were no problem. I would recommend them as a local fixer/production partner.

    I engaged Encounter Africa Safaris to help has arrange various services, including media permits, kit bond (for customs clearance), ground transportation and security for a television shoot in the Kampala area. Right from pre-production, Chris in the office was very helpful in providing information on what permits we would need and the process to obtain these. Communication was very clear and Chris responded to my emails quickly and was always available on the phone. Once our shoot started, the crew were met at the airport by Paul and Tolbert who cleared the kit through customs and drove the team to the hotel. Throughout the shoot they were very helpful and flexible, which is key as a shooting schedule is always changing! I massively recommend Encounter Africa Safaris if you need a fixer in Uganda, my experience with them was consistently professional and efficient!

    As noted we used the "Fixer" portion of their business but Paul was very helpful in navigating the tricky Ugandan traffic. Most importantly we had no problem getting about $70,000 worth of production in and back out of the country without hassle. He was also very patient as many days he was on call for us but we didn't have much for him to do. It was a little hard to pay them initially but once we used Pesapal it was quite easy.

    Encounter Safaris helped us to organise and complete a filming trip to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Communication was quick, efficient and very clear throughout, which made setting up the shoot completely stress-free. The service throughout the shoot was excellent. Tolbert, our guide and driver, was a great professional - both friendly and organised. He is also a very safe driver. Everything went very soothly indeed, thanks to his great work.
  • Scott Horsfield
    From initial contact to dropping us off at the airport, Encounter Africa Safaris were professional and excellent. What's more they are all thoroughly decent chaps you can have a laugh and chat with. We had a two week shoot across two locations for my client's volunteering programme. It involved continuously changing schedules and complexities but Edson and his team dealt with everything with patience and a smile. Mark our driver/fixer was way more than a fixer, he was a fourth crew member. He would watch how we work and seamlessly fit in helping out wherever he could. He shielded us when we had the authorities asking us questions, provided suggestions for shots and got us out off any tricky situations before they got too tricky. What's more he was a thoroughly great guy as interested in telling us about Uganda as he was in finding out about us. He really did become another member of the crew, making the long drives more enjoyable with his knowledge and sense of humour. I cannot recommend them enough.
