About us

Nkuringo Walking Safaris Background

Nkuringo Walking Safaris was established in 2007 as sustainable tourism initiative to develop a team of local guides with the premise of establishing a simply gorgeous multiday trek between the hamlet of Buhoma on the north side of the Bwindi Forest National Park and the town of Kisoro in South Western Uganda.

Nkuringo Walking Safaris is a fully registered member of the Association of Uganda Tour Operators – AUTO; a one stop shop with Entebbe Guesthouse / office base with our own fleet of 4×4 safari vehicles to support our safari programs. As a tour operator we are certainly more flexible than most and ready to work in partnership to deliver a fully tailor-made proposal for you.

We operate tours in Uganda and Rwanda. Our range of services include: tailor made Safaris featuring gorilla safaris and chimpanzee tracking; Game viewing; Mountaineering in the Rwenzoris and Elgon; White Water Rafting on the River Nile and historical sightseeing.

Our team consists of passionate Travel Consultants that will share both your enthusiasm for travel and lust for adventure. Because of their own extensive experience in the destinations that we offer, they will assist you in making your safari and travel experience an unforgettable event.
