Why We Are Different

Experience, Convenience, Satisfaction Guaranteed

For over a decade, Encounter African Safaris has been leading the way in Gorilla trekking and cultural experiences in Uganda and Rwanda, pioneering new travel approaches that guarantee satisfaction and qualitatively superior experience. We don’t sell tours but we tailor tours based on interests, budget and time of our clients. With our vast knowledge based on research conducted in the two destinations of Uganda and Rwanda, you will definitely benefit from our advice if you book a tour with us.

Professional indigenous guides

Encounter Africa Safaris is an indigenous Tour operator and we are fully aware that a guide can make a good trip if he is well trained, professional and conversant with the history, culture, flora and fauna of a given destination. Our guides are some of the best in Uganda and Rwanda, trained by Uganda Safari Guides Association, approved by Uganda Wildlife Authority and Uganda Tourism Board to carry our guiding services in both countries. This is why we are different from those who will instead assign you a driver instead of a guide.

Membership and other Associations

Encounter African Safaris Ltd is a fully registered tour and travel company in Uganda and a member with the Association of Uganda Tour Operators (AUTO). This means that we can get you gorilla permits or chimp permits which sometimes can be very scarce.

Safety and Comfort first

This guarantees maximum satisfaction. Prepare to immerse yourself, secure in your health and safety. Relax and enjoy the experiences of native culture and pristine wilderness environments confident of our exceptional accommodations, transportation, hygiene and security.

Bespoke Itineraries with your say

We customize our tour packages with your involvement. Our travel experts ensure that you get valuable safari experience.

Enjoy highest standards of hospitality

Gorilla and chimpanzee tracking and other tour activities like Nature walks consume a lot of energy. We understand this and make sure that your enthusiasms never get dimmed. We ensure your Gorilla safari memories last a lifetime. We never leave any stone unturned to make it happen!
