I founded Ujuzi African Travel in 2008 after a life-changing trip to East Africa. My mother-in-law, who had lived in Uganda, introduced me to places few tourists tread. She took me to breathtaking national parks, of course, but also brought me to a village where she had worked. I helped schoolchildren practice their English and enjoyed meals with her Ugandan friends. It was wonderful learning about their lives.
I created Ujuzi African Travel to give others the same personalized access to African culture and wildlife. Every trip is unique and designed around the interests of the traveler—whether you’re traveling alone, with friends, or with family.
You won’t find prescheduled, cookie-cutter group trips on this site. While prescheduled trips have some benefits, at Ujuzi, we like to plan trips with you in mind. You decide where to stay, how long you’ll travel, how much you’d like to spend, and the experiences you’d like to have.
Going on safari can be a big investment and, for many, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. My passion is creating custom African safaris that meet the unique aspirations of each traveler. I want to create a safari that fulfills your wildest dreams!
