I am passionate about tourism and conservation in my country Uganda and East Africa as a whole. I made sure i travel to most of the tourism attractions so as to sell them well to the people from the out side world. I love to put together interesting packages for tourists and insuring they have a great travel experience. Also i believe that through tourism one can reach out and empower local people, that is why i partnered up with a local school in my community to do a tree planting and water project and from each trip done, you indirectly support this project .

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"National parks-Game drives,Gorilla tracking,hiking,Mountain climbing
Beaches-Beach relaxation
Local communities-Coffee Experiential tours, community engagements
Lakes and rivers-Water Rafting, Bungee jumping, canoeing,fishing"

How did you get involved in travel?

"I got involved in travel when i was young as my family used to take us to nice places like the zoo, beaches etc and when i grew up, i pursued a tourism bachelors degree and still here as tourism students, we used to travel for a few tourism field trips. Then during my 3rd year of the degree i got a job in one tour company and this is how my career begun, we used to travel anywhere and everywhere across Uganda on famtrips, i grew passionate about travel as i discovered how beautiful and richer my country was. Then from here after 5 years of working for this company. I decided to start up umoja motherland tours ltd."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will never forget my second time of Gorilla tracking. In the beginning it was a little hectic as we walked and penetrated the Bwindi Impenetrable forest, the thick bushes and tall trees , the stinging plants plus red ants this made me paranoid some how. But when we approached a family of Gorillas with a gigantic silver back ,this was over whelming. Seeing the Gorillas feed, the mothers grooming the juveniles and the baby playing and swinging over the tall tress. This was something magical that i'll never forget."
