Uganda has Safe and secure hotels and lodges

Security measures are in place for your protection at any place of interest while on your safari in Uganda. Most lodges and hotels are safe and secure to ensure safety and protection. Most have arrangements with the Uganda Police Forces and others have their own private security staff.


There have been no crime threats yet in the lodges in the recent years, and as a tour operator we use and work with only secure and safe lodges 

Safe and security minded tour guides/drivers

As a tour operator, we use security minded drivers that are well-experienced and customer care oriented professionals. These guides/drivers are a key to secure and successful safari, and your security and safety is always their focus.


They are calm, have common sense and do not require GPS to get them to any place you are going to, they use defensive driving techniques.


Safe Uganda National Parks with security rangers

All our clients go on their tourist activities, e.g., game drives, hikes, and boat safaris, with an armed UWA ranger escort. We value our clients so much that we do not allow any of them to take on a national park activity without armed rangers. This helps us guide our clients against kidnapping incidents and unnecessary miss-outs from the tour activity.
