Travel with us



Uganda is one of the most diverse countries on the African continent. With its incredible variety of nature, culture and wildlife, this destination is perfect for an authentic adventure.


If you are looking to add a Great Apes or primates experience to your African trip. Rwanda has rich forests harboring lots of primates with the gorillas and chimpanzees being the major primate species.


The best time to visit Kenya is from June to October when there's virtually no rain and daytime temperatures are not too hot. However, with a diverse geography and a moderate climate, Kenya is considered a great year-round safari and beach holiday destination.

A great Destination all the year

Uganda is a great destination to vist all year round. Low season is considered to be from March to May and September to November and the high season is from June to August and December to February. In general travels are fewer during the low seasons making it a very intresting time to travel.

Driver-Guide & Client's Safety

The assigned driver-guide maintains contact with the park authority in case of any suspicious person(s) trailing him and clients. On the other hand, there’s also routine patrol by armed rangers within the parks in an effort to ensure that both tourists and wildlife are safe.
