Uganda Unplugged on SafariUganda Unplugged on Safari – A Safari is both an inner and outer journey. There is more to a safari in Uganda that can be measured in miles or kilometers. It is not clicking a list of animals and birds we might have seen. It is not ticking off lodges where one has stayed, or the number of parks visited. There is the inner Safari, something that eludes most.

An unplugged Safari is both an inner and outer journey. The Important thing is what a safari does inside of you. The Memories within remain with us long after we have gone back home. The lasting memories are imprinted on the heart. The new friendships you formed, the sights, sounds, smells that you have experienced on your Safari are much more significant than a meaningless like on Facebook.

Africa – it has a ring to it like no other continent. Once you have visited, you will never be the same again. We at Kabiza Wilderness Safaris keep in mind that we are not just putting together a safari. We are not only giving you an itinerary with dates, activities, and lodges. We are keenly aware that your Safari is an inner and outer journey taking you to a continent where the first roads were trodden by Elephants.


Uganda Unplugged on Safari - The Inner and outer JourneyUganda Unplugged on Safari: Say the word Safari and in your mind are the images of endless Savannah Plains. Say the word, and you find yourself trekking through Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, spending that hour with a mountain gorilla family.

A Safari is, however, more than a wildlife tour. Safari is a Swahili word meaning journey. A word that has been hijacked by the travel community for wildlife tours and any other trips. Not just in Africa but in different parts of the world.

To those that live where Swahili is spoken, or Swahili words have been incorporated into the language. To those that live in Kenya, Tanzania, parts of Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Rwanda. When they say Safari – they are talking about a trip, a journey to visit their home village, family, friends, most such trips are relational. The reality is that only small numbers of Africans have gone on a Safari as we know it where you see Gorillas, Chimpanzees, and Wildlife and memory creating sceneries.

Most of us come from societies that are mostly destination orientated.  We measure time – distance – outcome – we become impatient – we want it all now-now. It is like we are standing on a train looking out the window, Uganda Unplugged on Safari - The Inner and outer Journeylooking for the destination missing the Journey itself.

An unplugged the focus is on the moment. It is about time, patience, and allow things to unfold before your eyes naturally. Put the to-do list aside and take in what is before you. Let the experience resonate within and enjoy the gift of the now on your Unplugged African Safari – Journey.

A Safari is both an inner and outer journey. To every outer Journey (Safari) there is an inner journey (Safari). Where you stay while on safari influences that inner Journey. If you stay in a Backpacker place, you will be inundated with the sounds of celebration well into the night. If you stay in a lodge with 30 rooms – the ambiance is quite different from that of a small tented camp or lodge. The place, the surroundings influence your Safari, your Journey.

Imagine sitting on the veranda of your tent. The sounds of the African night come near you. Above you is a canopy of stars such as you have never seen before. The moon is rising and illuminating the night sky. There are no other sounds except that of a drum in the distance. The roar of a lion, the trump of an elephant, blend in. You reflect on today’s safari wildlife drives or primate tracking experiences. You take your journal and write – no longer focused on the destination, no longer seeing how many species of this or that you have seen. You write about your Journey, both outer and inner – the reflections of the heart on Safari.

An African Safari is not so much about schedules, destinations, kilometers. Still, an awaiting for nature to unfold. To unwrap those little miracles before our eyes.  we behold with our eyes, but see things differently with the eyes of our hearts…Enjoy the unplugged Journey in the Pearl of Africa.
