Karamoja Tourism Academy

Leveraging culture as a source of livelihood will ease the hostility between culture, development and a “modern” lifestyle and encourage young people in Karamoja to respect, preserve and embrace their traditions whilst also enhancing their opportunities in life.

With the growth currently experienced in Karamoja’s tourism industry throughout Uganda, the demand for qualified and experienced tour guides and hospitality staff is on the increase.


The reality is that the industry is growing faster then the amount of  trained and certified indigenous people. Our Development Programme bridges this gap by training learners in the relevant skills as well as creating the opportunity to gain the necessary experience to enter the market as a qualified Tour Guide and Hospitality Staff.

The Development Programme

This 12 month programme is structured as follows:

Guide courses

During the first six months the candidates will attend registered guide courses with nationally recognised certification.

Additional training

Learners will receive training in additional skills like: First Aid Level 1, Hospitality, Archaeology, Small business management, Leadership and Team Development.

Practical Experience

Six months internship at a lodge or tour operator that will supply free accommodation and meals.
