Special Tour for Ugandan Citizens!

This safari is intended to show Ugandans a view of our country that is usually enjoyed only by tourists.  We will bring you close to nature and to the people and cultures of this beautiful country we are lucky enough to call home. You will enjoy viewing savannah life and seeking out wild animals in our custom-made safari vehicle, a boat safari, hikes, community walks, and so much more.  All activities are set against a backdrop of dramatically beautiful Ugandan scenery, mountains, forests, savannahs, crater lakes, waterfalls, gorges, and, of course, the people.

This is optional, but it’s a rare opportunity to visit with one of the oldest cultural groups on the planet. Let’s not forget a souvenir stop, too.
