The Wilderness Experience

From a traveler's and a natural history’s point of view, no where else in Africa can one see such variety of primates with a lot of easy ranging from the mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, through over ten types of monkeys to the tiny wide-eyed bush baby.

When combined with astonishing game viewing of mixed herds of both forest and savanna subspecies of flora an fauna on an ecosystem representative of the wide East African plains and associated aquatic systems gives a safari in Uganda a uniqueness of lifetime memories to our visitors.

Uganda is located in Eastern Africa. It is a meeting point for the Africa Ecological Zone including; Savana Africa in the North east, Tropical Africa in the south, Equatorial forests in the West, Semi Arid Africa in the north, and because of its relatively high altitude (1500+ meters above sea level) along the equator, one finds mountains ranges with alpine zones and glacial capped mountain tips.

The good climate, ever green environment and a mix of amicable 56 tribes makes Uganda so beautiful, so much that the British Statesman Lord Churchill described it as the “Pearl of Africa”.

Uganda has 10 National parks and 23 wildlife reserves, not mentioning national natural forests, wetlands and bird sanctuaries.

Safari/ travel itineraries to national parks take 3 to 21 days depending on the customer’s travel preferences and time availability.

Cultural, Religious, Coffee Arboretum Trail (on-Farm), Education & Voluntarism

Though Uganda has over 40 tribes presenting a wide variety of cultures, they are all amicable and Ugandans are remarkably regarded by most travelers to be among the friendliest and most welcoming people in Africa, making Uganda one of the best site for cultural and experiential tourism.

We respond to visitors’ demand for experiential tourism by arranging participation in local traditions, traditional dances, preparing traditional meals, Kampala Night life, shopping of souvenirs, activities in carpentry & making of fabrics, classroom environment & pre-safari lectures and discussions.

The origins of the Kampala city go back to 1891 the when Kabaka of Buganda had his court on Rubaga and Mengo hills. The town that grew up achieved municipal status in 1950 and became a city' in 1962. Today, as you stand on the hills, the City' provides magnificent evergreen trees, gently disrupted by red-tiled villas, green iron-roofed bungalows, as well as taller modern city profiles that give way to attractive views of the surrounding country side and nearby Lake Victoria. The City has retained its traditional charm, and remains the greenest in Africa.
