75% of the tour fee goes directly to beneficiaries of the local community and 25% flows back to the social enterprise.

Kara-Tunga is a social enterprise and therefore strives to give back to the community by conducting a healthy and profitable business that’s able to grow and create (job) opportunities for the local community. Therefore the organisation focusses on investing in four pillars:
Due to the decades of insecurity and isolation, the Karimojong were disputed by fellow-Ugandans as uncivilised. Never would they have imagined that people would travel from far to learn about their rich culture.
Today the indigenous community is restoring their cultural pride and learning about its value, opportunities and risks.
Therefore Kara-Tunga strives for tourism development with collective decision making and revenue sharing like the Mount Moroto Lia Parish Community Association we supported to formalise.
