About us

We are a small scale locally-owned tour operator aimed at strengthening community resilience, protecting nature & preserving cultural heritage by regional tourism marketing, developing cultural and nature tours and endorsing indigenous artists.

 

Our team of knowledgable local guides, are eager to sharing East Africa’s last indigenous living cultures and natural resources from Karamoja’s savanna-lands to the lush volcanic mountain ranges.

Local awareness

We are true citizens of our area as we’re are locally owned and hire local talent. We aim at investing in local growth, the well-being of our people and the health of the local economy. Citizenship begins at home.

Participation

Our strength is on sharing and full participation. We stand for a meaningful experience by spending time with the community. Discover the countryside during nature walks or mountain hiking.  Share daily life with the community by spending a day or night in a traditional homestead.

Tourism development

For long, tourism in Uganda has been focused on wildlife safaris and other tourist destinations but community tourism is an opportunity for the local community to participate and benefit from their natural and cultural resources.

 

Tourism development is therefore at the core of our operations. We focus on rural areas affected most by decline in the capacity of agriculture. Degeneration of the countryside is prevented and cultural heritage preserved by raising supplementary family income through tourism.

 

We focus on identifying potential tourism sites and activities, building community capacity through education and creating demand through marketing and packaging.

Safety

We are partners of the Uganda Red Cross Society and our staff is therefore certified volunteers and able to provide First Aid during activities and in the community. The Uganda Red Cross also advices on safety guidelines and emergency evacuation planning.
