Safaria Tours & Travel is Ugandan adventure registered tour operator companies that mainly focus on extending East Africa adventure experience to potential world adventure seekers, meet our local and well trained young mountaineering guides to Rwenzori Mountains for climbing expeditions. Our formation is with intentions to create awareness to potential climbers and hikers about a snow capped mountain across the equator leading to the mountain exposure as one of the key attractions in Uganda, increase numbers of Mountain climbers and all adventure seekers as well as focus on the quality of other safari tour operation in Uganda and other East African countries. The agency has indeed stretched its wings to Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania.
Safaria works closely with the Ugandan Government, the Uganda Wildlife Authority and the Association of Uganda Tour Operators in order to guarantee quality service, flexibility and consistency. In addition, the company is at the forefront of marketing Uganda and strives to expand its international collaborations.
Our Safaria team is made up of 15 capable and competent office staff and high qualified driver/guides and tour leaders, who all possess the requisite academic qualifications and years of valuable experience. Among us we speak a range of European and African languages, including English, Swahili, Luganda, Kinyarwanda and many other local dialects found all across East Africa, empowering us to manage and handle all of our guest’s tour requirements right from conception to operation to closing, for optimal satisfaction.
Aware of the critical role a guide plays in our guests’ holiday experience, we hire only the best. Of our highly experience full time guides, many used to be national parks rangers with Uganda Wildlife Authority and therefore have extensive local knowledge of the flora and fauna, history, culture, geography. Some avid ornithologists complete our pack.
They also attend regular courses with the accrediting local USAGA (Uganda Safari Guides Association), are members of the Uganda Bird Guides Club and Conservation Societies. In addition, we provide German, Spanish and Japanese speaking Tour Leader/Guides, as well as accompanying translators in any of the other major international languages upon request.
The company owns Toyota Land Cruisers and Minibuses. All vehicles are 4WD, are well maintained and provide a pop up roof for game viewing. For clients’ convenience, we try to limit the number of people in one vehicle to 5-6 persons. This means that every guest can enjoy having a window seat and luggage can be stored comfortably.
The challenging condition of the roads means that safari vehicles are serviced by Riverine Safaris own company mechanics after every trip.
Cultural tours in Uganda
Uganda features four major traditional and well established kingdoms: Buganda, Toro, Bunyoro and Busoga. Additionally, Uganda has many other different tribes-peoples practicing age old cultures, customs and traditions including the pygmy Batwa in Bwindi, the Banyakole famed for their magnificent long horned cattle, as well as the nomadic Karamojong living in the remote, semi-arid North East bordering Kenya and South Sudan. Historical relics including the Kasubi tombs (burial grounds of ancient Baganda kings), the Uganda Martyrs Shrine(a much more modern religious shrine), all amongst reputedly the world’s most hospitable people definitely makes Uganda one of the most ideal cultural tourism destinations in the world.
Our consultants stand ready to work with our guests to create the most fascinating and unforgettable cultural experiential tours.
Adventure tours in Uganda
When it comes to adventure, nothing beats a coming face to face with a giant Mountain Gorilla silverback, eight times the power of a grown man, in its natural habitat. Although an encounter with the over 100 strong families of chimpanzees in Kibale forest National Park must rank as the truest definition of ‘a walk on the wild side’- it could stop your heart! To partake the wildest white water rafting amongst the rapids of the magnificent river Nile, the world’s longest, is the true epitome of an adrenaline pumping river adventure and we think that a bungee jumping thrill over the river Nile must be what real ‘dare-devilism’ is about.
You can climb Claudius Ptolemy’s fabled ‘Mountains of the moons’, the Ruwenzori and marvel at their ice capped peaks astride the equator on a 7-days adventure with experienced guides; or hike the fringes of the famous Mount Elgon on the Uganda/Kenya border. If you take a launch boat on the Nile, in Murchison Falls National Park, come up close to the base of the glorious Murchison Falls itself where the mighty river forces its entire self through a narrow 7m cleft to tumble 43m down in a thunderous show of mighty power; without a doubt some of the most breathtaking sceneries imaginable. You could also take a hike up to the top of the falls and marvel at the falls from above, there just so many things you could do – Uganda must truly be the adventure capital of the world. Please contact us!
Recreation holidays in Uganda
Lake Victoria, the world’s second largest fresh water lake, provides numerous opportunities for beach tourism on its edge in Entebbe as well as at various islands including Ssese Islands and Bulago Island, where one can enjoy walks on the beach, boat rides, lazy bird walks, some water sports, visits to the local fishing villages etc
Relax on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi, enjoy the peace, beauty and tranquility at the source of the Nile in Jinja, and visit the Mahatma Gandhi Shrine, the universal apostle of peace and non-violence; his ashes were immersed in the river Nile in 1948, as he requested. Enjoy launch cruises on the Kazinga Channel in Queen Elizabeth National Park or step out to mix and mingle with local Ugandans on a night outing in Kampala and feel the pulse of this buzzing capital city; Ugandans love to have a giant amount of fun – you’re more than welcome to join!
Special interest journeys in Uganda
Besides the classical safaris, Safaria offers theme-based packages and special interest tours, like golf tours, honeymoons, incentive group tours, tribal and homestead tours, philanthropic tours, school/colleges groups and many more.
Tours in Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya and Tanzania
Safaria Tours has an own fully fledged tour operating office in Kenya and is in the process of establishing one in Rwanda, while in Burundi and Tanzania we use loyal partner operators making us an able and efficient one stop shop for all your Safari and Holiday requirements across East Africa
Safaria Tours is highly conscious of the need to protect the natural environment and valuable cultural heritage. We have therefore initiated a number of projects, to maximize the benefits tourism can bring to local communities. One of these projects is the cooperation with a local family in Nshenyi Village, where guests can learn more about the culture of the different tribes and interact with the local people. A visit will support community based initiatives, varying from the construction of schools to the supply of clean drinking water and the making of traditional handcrafts.
We wish you a memorable safari holiday experience with us
