Kabiza Wilderness Safaris – We have created Memorable Safaris for over a Decade:

The number of Safari Tour Operators is simply overwhelming for someone in search of the Right Safari Tour Operator for them.  The internet gives equal presence to the smallest and largest tour operators alike – however, every one of those tour operators attempting to sell you a Safari Tour in the Pearl Africa is at one level of maturity as a company or another, many of them in still in their infancy.

When we started out, though we had Tourism Experience we were still in our infancy, taking Baby Steps in African Safaris in Uganda and Rwanda, a lot has changed over the years.

We have learned through the years, we have gone through puberty in the maturation of a Safari Tour Company, dropped some things and gathered others along the journey to where we are today where the Client was our first priority and not the profit margin.

We are still growing, discovering, becoming, never shedding our Client orientated Core Values and that will never change.  In the vast sea of sameness and your search for the tour operator, we remain uniquely ourselves with one focus – a Hakuna Matata – Worry-Free Safari for you in the heart of Africa…

Kabiza Wilderness Safaris – we know Uganda – the Pearl of Africa – we live and work here.
