Active Uganda Safaris Ltd PO BOX 4640 second street industrial area kinyara building Kampala, Uganda
Active Uganda Safaris Ltd. (sometimes referred to hereafter as AUS) was founded in 2014 and incoporated in 2017 by a young and professional entrepreneur, Mr Deus Ntaganda.
He set up a company with the intention to improve the quality of tour operations in Uganda and the region of East Africa. The company began with little resources, but over the years it has grown and that have seen the company join the ranks of some of the
leading young tour companies in East Africa.
The vision of Active Safaris is to develop an indigenously owned tour company with international partnerships and networks that will operate in the entire East African Region, which includes Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania. AUS seeks to provide first-rate flexible service to its clients and promote the image of Uganda as an unequalled tourism destination in the world
The mission of Active Safaris is to provide first-rate Vacations, tours and guiding services, which promote Uganda as a leading tourism destination. AUS designs flexible packages that suit the all client’s needs and budget.
Ready-made packages are offered, though this does not limit the traveller’s choice. Customers can design their own packages with the personalized assistance of our team.
Care, professionalism and dedication are some of the core values that underpin the business approach of AUS, AUS has established itself as a strong and reliable company that guarantees quality, consistency and competitive prices. Other core values of the company are innovation, flexibility, quality customer service, community benefit and accessibility.
SALES & MARKETING
Active Safaris tour products and services are featured in the Uganda Tourist Board, which is part of Uganda Government Tourist Promotion Program. AUS maintains close contact with the Ugandan Government, UWA and AUTO in order to guarantee quality service, flexibility and consistency. In addition, the company is at the forefront of marketing and strives for expanding its international collaborations.
In 2013, Active Safaris Uganda published its own website: www.activeugandasafaris.com, which now receives over 50 visitors worldwide per month and is still growing. As an integral service to its clients, AUS has twelve-hour web monitoring to ensure enquiries are answered promptly. The website is updated regularly.
Active Uganda Safaris employs a staff of 3 competent office workers, 5 guides and drivers. Self-evidently all employees possess high experience and education qualifications. Many different languages are spoken, including English, Dutch, Swahili and several other local languages, in order to manage clients for optimal satisfaction.
Being aware of the crucial role a guide plays in our client’s vacation, the company makes high demands on her employees. Our 5 full time guides have been working for AUS for years and are highly experienced. Many of them have an extensive knowledge of flora and fauna. The guides attend regular courses of the USGA (Uganda Safari Guides Association) and are members of the Uganda Bird Guides Club and Uganda Wildlife Conservation Society. Most of them have
also participated in courses and projects in Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda.
The company owns 1 land cruiser and Two Minibuses. All vehicles are 4WD, well maintained and
provide a pop up roof for game viewing. Due to the challenging condition of the roads, the safari vehicles are
serviced by AUS company mechanics after every trip. For clients convenience we try to limit the number of people
in one vehicle to 5-6 persons, ensuring that everybody has a window seat and luggage can be stored comfortably.

Active Safaris Uganda is highly conscious of the necessity to protect the natural environment and valuable cultural heritage. Therefore we have initiated different projects, trying to maximize the benefits that tourism can bring to the local communities.
One of these projects is the cooperation with a local family in Nshenyi Village, where guests can learn more about the culture of the different tribes and interact with the local people.
A visit will support community based initiatives, varying from the construction of schools to traditional handcrafts and the supply of clean drinking water.
