About Mamaland Safaris

We are a Ugandan tour operator specialised in Uganda safaris tailor-made to your wishes, time-frame and budget. A Uganda safari with us can include game-drives on the savannas, bird-watching, chimps & gorilla trekking, community tourism, relaxation and much more. We can as well arrange combination safaris where Uganda is combined with Tanzania, Kenya or Rwanda.

Why Mamaland Safaris?

– “the Mamaland Way”

We make sure to be out in the field to keep updated on changes in activities, lodges, roads and other essential things that affect your safari. Our director as well as our tour-consultant regularly head out as guides for safaris. In this way we know safari business in Uganda from the bottom up and can assist you with endless knowledge about your destination and we have the experience needed to plan a great itinerary and operate a hassle free safari. We call this “the Mamaland way”.

About Mamaland Safaris


At Mamaland Safaris we are specialised in private safaris so you will be travelling in a private 4×4 vehicle with your own safari guide. All our vehicles have a pop-up roof for game-viewing on the savannah. Your tour guide will take care of all practical aspects during the safari so you can relax and enjoy your holiday to Uganda.

We like to take our visitors on a journey through Uganda. By this we mean that you are not just taken from activity to activity, additionally you will go home having a feeling that you have actually experienced Uganda as well. When time allows we encourage stops in villages, scenic locations and markets along the way as well as trying of local food.

The tempo of your Uganda safari is set by you in the planning stage of the safari. Our Uganda tours can be adapted to the tempo you wish. If you wish to have some free afternoons and slow mornings we plan for that. If you prefer to see as much as possible during the time here we give the safari a higher tempo.

You might have the picture of dusty roads and tuff conditions when you think of a safari in Africa. But the fact is that the infrastructure in Uganda has improved a lot in the last few years. Most longer drives are on comfortable roads where a longer distance can be covered without problem. Within the parks and when going off the beaten trek in Eastern Uganda we will encounter more basic road conditions though. In these situations you can still feel secure we only operate with 4×4 vehicles that are maintained to manage these conditions.

Relax as we handle all!


Short history

Mamaland Safaris is a local tour operator that was born in 2005 after shorter trips around Kampala’s tourist attractions way back in the 1990’s . Since then due to increased demand from our adventurous travellers, we widened our trips outside Kampala, especially to Uganda’s National Parks with game viewing and Gorilla trekking, but also combination safaris including our East African neighbours. As well as budget safaris we arrange luxury Uganda safaris.

Ever since the start, our aim has been to make your trip memorable. If you are thinking about travelling with Mamaland Safaris don’t hesitate to write a proposal to us and we design an itinerary based on your wishes.
