Discover Karamoja

Discover Karamoja is aimed at positively impacting the image of Karamoja (northeast Uganda) through photography and raise funds to preserve one of East Africa’s last living Indigenous cultures.

March 2016: Kara-Tunga started the first social tour operator focused on the Karamoja region of northeast Uganda, aimed at sustainable enhancement of community livelihoods through tourism and arts.


Kara-Tunga soon realised that the negative image of the region was an important barrier for people to travel. During the first year of operating numerous western countries advised against any travel through the region and only the most adventurous travellers discovered the beauty of Karamoja.


January 2017: Kara-Tunga embraced the power of social media to positively impacting the image of the region and founded Discover Karamoja. Positively impacting the image of the region and promoting tourism as income generator for the local community.
