Why choose Great Lakes Safaris for your safari to East Africa?

We are a local Ugandan Tour Operator, we are large enough to be respected as a premier safari company in Uganda and still small enough to care about each of our travellers.

Some key points about us and the way we operate:

  • Passionate about Uganda Safaris.

    The bottom line is, our guides are happy with their jobs, love the interaction with people of different cultures, and work hard to make sure that their passengers are satisfied. All of that becomes very apparent when you experience Uganda through their insightful eyes.

  • The guide is the key to a great safari!

    A guide’s knowledge, sensitivity, and good humour are some of the most essential elements of a successful Uganda tour. And quite simply, Great Lakes Safaris guides are the best. We don’t say so. Our passengers do! They rave about every one of them.

  • Our small size gives us the ability to respond to each of our passengers as individuals, with unique needs, wants and desires.

    When you call, any member of our staff will answer your questions with authority and patience. After you book a trip, we’ll stay in contact, providing you with thorough information about your trip. This level of personal interaction continues in Uganda, where our staff is as curious about you as you are about them.

  • We take care of all the details from helping you choose the best trip to match your interests and budget, to advise you on your international flights.

    We are known for our personalized and professional service. Contact us and you will immediately experience the difference.

  • We have the resources and the knowledge to get things done.

    Being experienced locals, we know how to work out all the kinks, and can handle any little bumps along the way with ease and professionalism. That translates into the smoothest and safest possible safari experience for our passengers. Another benefit is that we have long-standing relationships with the Ugandan Government, game wardens, park keepers, the Uganda Tourism Board and the Ministry of Tourism. These friendships are extremely helpful when problems arise, and are essential to the running of safe, successful safaris in Uganda.

  • Everyone who works for Great Lakes Safaris has an enthusiastic commitment to the protection of Uganda’s natural resources.

    We are practicing low impact tourism in Uganda. When you travel with us, you are supporting sustainable and responsible tourism that helps the country.

  • Our Safaris are a Great Value

    Because with us there is no middleman, we can offer higher quality safaris for a better price. Whether you choose our budget camping safaris, or our luxurious lodge safaris you can trust that with us you are getting the best value experience possible.

    Other companies may offer cheaper safaris, but we can promise and deliver superior value. Because we own our own operation in Uganda, we never have to cut corners to offer a great safari at a reasonable price. Just take a look at our safari itineraries and you’ll see the difference. And remember, we take care of all the details including advising you on your international flights to Uganda and providing you with comprehensive pre-departure information so you can be confident that you are well prepared for your gorilla safari or trekking adventure. Once you arrive in Uganda, you’ll really understand the difference. So, contact us and take your first step toward the trip of a lifetime
