Driver Guides

Driver guides have a pivotal role to the success of any safari. On this basis, we never assign trips to safari guides who not trained well for the job.

All our guides know very well the destinations, plants and animals, the routes, Culture, accommodations, the geography and all attractions in the country where we operate.

They are members of the Uganda Safari Guides Association (USAGA) and also accredited to many other bodies that strive to improve the quality of guiding services in Uganda.


A safari vehicle can make or kill a safari. With this awareness, we ensure that we assign vehicles to our visitors whose mechanical conditions are very stable. We have got Land Cruisers, Nissan Patrols, Coasters and Minibuses among others. All our vehicles are 4WD and are well-services to meet the tourism standards.
