WHO WE ARE
We have been a trusted DMC for Uganda and Rwanda since 2007, offering sustainable, innovative, private tours and safaris. Our guests trust us to provide enriching off-the-beaten-track adventures, wildlife viewing safari holidays, and gorilla trekking safaris tailored to their interests, travel dates, and budgets.
Our local safari experts aim to provide active experiences so transformative that our guests never want an African adventure in any other way. With an award-winning forest lodge, Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge, at the base of gorilla trekking in Uganda and a boutique guesthouse, Papyrus Guesthouse, at Uganda's entry point in Entebbe, Nkuringo Safaris promises the best wildlife and primate experiences in the 'Pearl of Africa.'
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.
There is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you had drunk half a bottle of champagne — bubbling over with heartfelt gratitude for being alive.
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 travellers for long. So we put together a team of local guides and set up our first adventure brand, Nkuringo Walking Safaris, to take travellers 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 travelling with more than just a Destination Management Company but with a family of ardent local travellers.
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.
