WANYAMA TOURS – Travel with Professional Nature Guides

Wanyama Tours  – We set out to do something different; to offer travellers vacations experiences that were far from the ordinary, customised, unique, relaxed, energetic, bonding and indulgent vacations for individuals and families. It seems a lot of people like their vacations to be that way. This has made us one of the fastest growing local tour companies in Uganda.

People have trusted us to design exciting, fun-filled vacations for them and others, their families.  We can “tailor-make” a tour that will linger in a lifetime’s worth of memories.
On our tours, you will visit wild places untouched by mass tourism and have lots of fun with new friends from around the world who share your sense of adventure. Take some time and look at the attractive range of the Tours/Safaris and Excursions we offer on our websites. Please email us if you need any additional information. We hope we can be of service to you.

Your guide

At Wanyama Tours, we believe a professional tour guide is a prime ingredient for any safari; our guides are chosen very carefully on merit. They are personable, knowledgeable men and women with interesting academic and professional backgrounds who have all the skills to conduct an extended tour, professionally and to make sure every individual has a great time.

These local guides have grown up in the Ugandan bush hunting birds and small mammals. They have gone through Bird, Cultural, Wildlife, and general tour guiding courses and are members of the Uganda Bird Guides Club (UBGC), Uganda Cultural Guides Club (UCGC) and Uganda Safari Guides Association (USAGA) which is the umbrella association for all guides’ clubs in Uganda.

Our Knowledgeable guides fluently speak English, and there is hardly a question they will not answer.

Personal Friendly Staff

Financial Security

Wanyama Tours is a fully registered company and bonded tour operator, so you can be sure that all payments made to us in advance of your tour are protected. It might be quite difficult to let you know how important it is to book your tours with a reliable company. It may cost a bit more, but a financial failure that leaves you with a severe problem is far less likely.

We are such a credible tour operator company in the country; this is evident from our strong ties with the original stakeholders in Uganda’s tourism industry.  Not only are we corporate members of Nature Uganda (NU)- a branch of the East Africa Natural History Society (EANHS) in Uganda which is the oldest conservation organisation in East Africa, Uganda Safari Guides Association (USAGA)- The umbrella association of guides and guides clubs in Uganda,Uganda Bird Guides Club, Uganda Cultural Guides Club, but also in good books with Uganda Wildlife Authority, Uganda Tourism Board along with several others.

Group Size

At Wanyama Tours, we have the lowest group size limits of any major tour company. Our Off-the-shelf tours of up to 8 individuals only will bread a quality tour since better communication is ensured and there are higher chances of seeing wildlife clearly

Quality Hotels

We operate with a variety of hotels which have been carefully selected on merit and frequently checked to ensure they meet our rigorous standards, many have been chosen for their commitment to sustainable tourism. As well as location, our selection also reflects our personal preference for places with character where the owners and managers like to engage with their guests.

We have contracts with a significant number of Uganda hotels; this means we can pass on substantial savings to our clients and also guarantees us control to ensure the content and quality of your stay is of high class.

Comfortable Reliable 4×4 Vehicles

We have 4×4 vehicles, suitable for a variety of road conditions and game drives with ‘pop-up’ tops to maximise birding and Game viewing even in the savannah amidst the wild beasts. All vehicles have seatbelts, reclining seats and for the comfort of all passengers, have a ‘no smoking’ policy.

Our Vision

We aim at establishing ourselves as a niche player in the private sector of Uganda tourism as well as the East African region at large. By organising trips that give our guests the best travel experiences in the target areas, and continuously focus on the needs of the premium class tourists, we will provide the best value propositions in the market we serve.


Internally we intend to create and nurture a healthy, exuberant, respectful, and enjoyable environment, in which our employees are fairly compensated and encouraged to respect the clients and the quality of the service we intend to provide. Also, follow-up will be mandatory to ensure client satisfaction and make any improvements as recommended by the clients for a better future. We seek fair and responsible profit, enough to keep the company financially healthy for the short and long term and to fairly reward our employees.


We exist to provide a valuable service to our clients, a rewarding opportunity for our employees, and profitability to our shareholders. We believe that success in this endeavour depends on our employees. Satisfied employees lead to satisfied clients, which leads to pleased shareholders. To achieve this, we enable our employees to act with an entrepreneurial spirit, and we value those willing to take responsibility for their actions.

We treat employees as family, which fosters intimacy, informality, healthy relationships, caring attitudes, and it makes work more fun. We treat employees with respect, which encourages them to treat each other and every client with respect.

We want our clients to experience legendary service that makes a lasting impression. Providing exceptional value to clients requires hard work and concentration. Hard work is most effective when processes are simple. Simplicity reduces costs and speeds processes. We believe in doing things right the first time, therefore do not cut corners.

We take pride in our efforts as well as the rewards. Throughout this endeavour, safety will be the over-riding force behind any decision. On our tours, our clients will travel in security and confidence, with professional and personable tour guides. Through their commentary, they should be able to have an in-depth look at the tour activities and the country with its people.
