I am a Tour and Safari expert, Conservationist, as well as a Wildlife and Nature Lover. Based in Uganda, East Africa, together with my team at Kenlink Tours & Travel, we are able to organise exciting adventures over Easten Africa. Kenlink Tours & Travel is a destination management company (DMC) based in Uganda, arranging Safaris in East Africa, including Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda. We are passionate about travel and taking you on your dream adventure!

Uganda is a land locked country located in East Africa, and covers an area of more than 241,000 square Kilometres. With over 1078 bird species, an abundance of Wildlife including Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo, and many others. Uganda is also home to a number of primates; like the Chimpanzees - you will have a 95% chance of finding and engaging with them during your Chimpanzee Tracking activity.

We can organise combinations of experiences, including; Wildlife Safaris, Gorilla and/or Chimpanzee tracking safaris, Cultural tours, Hiking Tours, Boat Cruises etc.

Supporting the local communities: Our trips do not focus on profit but more so supporting and uplifting the Local Communities. We do this by assisting orphans, with help of school fees, shelter, medication and others facilities. Conservation: Another target is supporting the Conservation efforts in Uganda, protecting the wildlife, animals and trees that I hold so dear.

I believe that, when you travel to new places, you will be permanently changed by both the new environment and the chance to engage with new people. I love to share in these travel experiences with my guests, to watch them fall in love with my country and its people.

I speak both English and Swahili, but between my team - we can accommodate Tours in French, German, Dutch, Italian and Japanese!
