Kagera Safaris Limited is an Eco tourism company registered in Uganda with the registrar of companies, conducting tours in Uganda, Rwanda and entire East Africa region. We plan gorilla safaris, wildlife safaris, birding safaris, hiking, cultural & community tours and educational tours for high school and university students. We also provide high quality destination management services in Uganda and Rwanda for travel companies from across the globe.
We are passionate about linking tourism to rural community development so the ‘tourism dollar’ can reach the communities. This ensures communities living adjacent to the park and those along the ‘tourism route’ to get actively engaged in conservation of wildlife because they benefit directly. We encourage our clients to visit communities and ‘home stays’ and or engage in a community activity that lasts from 1 hour to several hours or over nights. The community activities include village walks which often lead to local schools and health centers, cooking and gardening, traditional healers, offering you insight in every day lives of the local people.
Our tailor-made safaris consider the client’s needs, time, and budget offering them the opportunity to appreciate the beauty and diversity of East Africa in comfort and style. All our treks and safaris are Eco-friendly; we respect the environment and culture of the local communities. The itineraries offered on the website act as examples, you are encouraged to create the itinerary of your choice together with our staff.
I love traveling and I enjoy the countryside which usually is less busy than most cities. From an early age I always looked forward to a time of visiting a relative living far from our home which meant traveling for hours – while others dreaded it. I love sharing knowledge of the destinations we work in with visitors who often experience something different from what they read or watched on TV (too bad sometimes media concentrates on the negative). It has been said that people come to Uganda/Rwanda (Africa) for the attractions but leave with fond memories of the people they get to interact with.
In 2012 I started Kagera Safaris from a love of travel and nature and from a love for youth and community development. I are passionate about creating opportunities for others and my desire is to incorporate travel to national parks with visits to communities so that they benefit directly from tourism income.
I and the team have been to all the destinations we share here, several times. We offer a personal touch to every trip – individually tailored with detailed information and respond to your need and wishes as best as we can. We have been involved in putting together great experiences for people exploring Uganda, Rwanda and East Africa in general for over 5 years.
We look forward to creating a distinctive and memorable holiday vacation for you in Uganda, Rwanda or entire East Africa region.
