WHO WE ARE
Nkuringo Safaris (also known as Nkuringo Walking Safaris) has been offering sustainable and innovative private gorilla tours and wildlife safaris in Uganda and Rwanda since 2007. Our team of experienced travelers is always ready to push themselves out of their comfort zones to better understand the fascinating world around us. We aim to provide active experiences so transformative that our guests will never want to have an African adventure in any other way.
Our award-winning forest lodge, Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge, is located at the gorilla trekking base in Uganda, while our boutique guesthouse, Papyrus Guesthouse, is situated at Uganda's entry point in Entebbe. We promise adventures that will open your mind with curiosity and connect you with people and cultures.
Apart from our extensive knowledge of Uganda and Rwanda travel logistics, we also extend our well-earned expertise to Kenya and Tanzania while jealously protecting our unique promise of sustainable journeys and community involvement. We have partnered with some of East Africa Safari's best service providers to curate first-rate experiences.
Once you've read our guide and are ready for Africa, our local specialists will gladly help you find the perfect trip without pressure and no commitment to book. And because we are local, we don't charge any commissions, and you know you're always getting the best possible price.
My mom and I just got back from an 8 day trip to Uganda organized by Nkuringo Safaris and it was incredible! When planning our trip we knew we wanted to use a Ugandan based company; I had reached out to 5 or 6 different companies all of whom returned a cookie cutter itinerary--except Nkuringo. Catherine replied and asked pointed questions about what our goals were and then she curated a perfect itinerary for us. She was incredibly patient and answered my many many questions and emails promptly (which is hard to do given the time difference!)
Uganda is our home — we're fortunate to call it that — and we're thrilled to share it with our guests. In 2007, we set up a camp in Nkuringo in the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest that has gracefully grown into a multi-award-winning luxury safari lodge in Uganda.
The camp couldn't survive on the jungle's edge without travelers for long. So we put together a team of local guides and set up our first adventure brand, Nkuringo Walking Safaris, to take travelers to experience our discovery expeditions and beyond.
And we began and built our company here in the beautiful Pearl of Africa. So you see, when you travel with Nkuringo, you're traveling with more than just a Destination Management Company but with a family of ardent local travelers.
True adventures go beyond incredible destinations or inclusive packages. Nkuringo Safaris delivers a sense of possibility across Uganda, Rwanda, and a bit of Kenya and Tanzania.
Since 2007, we have shared our love of leisure travel in Africa. Today our travel collection features comprehensive guided wildlife safaris, gorilla trekking, chimpanzee tracking, guided walking & hiking adventures, small group tours, and family trips.
With Nkuringo Safaris, wake each morning on safari with a new experience in front of you. Best of all – we seamlessly handle the details, and all you have to do is live the experience! And when your head hits the pillow with your hand tucked under and a warm grin washes over your face, you will know it has been a fantastic day.
