Nkuringo Walking Safaris

About us, our journey and we’re in the business of walking.

Who we are

Since 2007, Nkuringo Walking Safaris has taken travellers on memorable active adventure safaris across Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania. At Nkuringo Walking Safaris, we believe that travelling under your own power and at your own pace opens up an opportunity to connect more meaningfully with the world.

We aim to provide active experiences so transformative that our guests never want to adventure in any other way. We provide outstanding support on meticulously planned itineraries with superb accommodations so you can be completely present when experiencing your adventure. We want our travellers to enjoy nature through authentically rich and adventurous experiences. 

Listening to our customers, we focus on developing walking, biking, mountaineering, birding, gorilla trekking, community exploring, and active adventures, which offer the freedom to travel at your own pace. You can be confident that your adventure has been carefully planned by a company with years of experience and over 40 local experts.

Adventuring under your own power, at your own pace.

“Robert & I founded Nkuringo Walking Safaris in 2007 from a camp on the southern edge of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park after a gorilla trekking adventure, and it has been an exciting journey to get to where we are today—a company of over 40 passionate travel enthusiasts, working together to develop and deliver outstanding active safari holidays. Our headquarters in Entebbe are among the most innovative offices in the city, and our growing team thrives in this unique environment.”

“Our team thrives on making travel dreams come true. By arranging everything from hand-picked accommodations to hassle-free local transfers to precise mapping, we give you unique safari experiences and create memorable moments by taking care of every logistical requirement.”

Our Adventures

When developing our walking safari itineraries, we focus on our core values; to be adventurous, have fun, stay active, keep things personal, and give ‘a shit!’

We want to help you explore the world the active way, going at your own pace, and making discoveries that are personal to you. Our focus is on private travel; most of our safaris are managed by conscious local experts who will guide you through untamed destinations and let you choose your activities based on expert knowledge around the clock.

Our trip planners plan your activities, leaving enough time to allow you to pause when you want to take in your surroundings. They are keen to enable you to explore local attractions at your leisure and enjoy the immense satisfaction of knowing that you’ve achieved something every day. For fallback, you’ll have full phone support from your trip planner available 24/7. Sometimes we offer small group adventures when our guests prefer to travel that way.
