What Our Clients Say About Ssali Billy

Ssali BillyI hired Billy as my guide when I visited Uganda and Rwanda back in January 2011.  While I had little knowledge of Uganda, its infrastructure, language, etc, Billy was honestly the best guide I could have asked for.  Billy was professional, timely, flexible, understanding, enjoyable to spend time with, accommodating, knowledgeable and a hard worker.  When arriving in East Africa, I expected my hike and summit of Mt Kilimanjaro to be the highlight of my trip.  It was not.  My trip to Uganda was definitely my highlight, all thanks to Billy.  I couldn’t have done enough research to understand and navigate this country.  Plus the infrastructure is not such that it would even be possible.  Instead Billy picked me up at the airport and completed my trip while in Uganda and Rwanda to be an absolutely unbeatable experience. He has passion and enthusiasm that complements the traveling experience.  He is a hard worker and will do everything possible to make the trip and experience as memorable as possible.  Billy is known and respected by all of the national parks and hotels that we visited.  I feel like this says a lot about someone’s ongoing character.

I really can’t write enough positive words about Billy’s work ethic and guiding experience.  To the point that I have promised Billy that I would bring my senior parents with me to East Africa next time under Billy’s care.  I wouldn’t even consider using someone else.  It is my recommendation that Billy Ssali is a reputable, trustworthy individual to represent your organization in a very beautiful part of the Africa continent. Everyone should experience the breathtaking opportunity to sit with a gorilla.

If I can be of anymore assistance, please let me know.  Good luck with your business!

Kind Regards,

Kate (U.S.A)
