HISTORY
 
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.

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

VEHICLES   
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.

SUSTAINABLE TOURISM
 
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.
