Human Resources

Gorillas and Wildlife Safaris employs a staff of seven competent office workers, guides and drivers. Self-evidently all employees possess high experience and education qualifications. Many different languages are spoken, like English, Dutch, Swahili and several other local languages, in order to manage clients for optimal satisfaction.

Being aware of the crucial role a guide plays in one’s holiday, the company makes high demands on these employees. Each of our guides has an extensive knowledge of the region in which the company operates. They are all adept in their knowledge of the flora and fauna of Uganda and through their experience they can choose the best spots in the country to visit for each particular need. They have experience ranging from regular touring to mountaineering, sport fishing and bird watching.



Our preferred safari transportation mode is the customized 4x4 land cruiser with a pop-up roof and wide opening windows. All vehicles have air-conditioning for your comfort on dusty roads. We have 4-seats land-cruisers, 5-seats lancruisers, 8 seats landcruisers.

We often also charter planes for our clients whenever the need arises.

We aim for a standard of travel a step above that offered by the general travel industry.

Sustainable Tourism

Gorillas and Wildlife Safaris is highly conscious of the necessity to protect the nature and to make sure that the local community benefits from tourism as well. By offering technical assistance to Ruhija Village, community near Bwindi Impenetrable National Park we are ensuring sustainable conservation as the pressure on the national park, which is also home to the rare and endangered mountain gorilla is significantly reduced.

Besides this, Gorillas and Wildlife Safaris supports eco-lodges like Jacana Safari Lodge, which are built with wood and other materials from the surroundings, doing every effort to conserve the environment with low impact. From its conception, we also use the services of Bigodi Swamp heritage trails and Ssezibwa Falls.
