Enter Uganda's Paradise Now!

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. 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. We are licensed by Uganda Tourism Board, members of AUTO and represented on


Choose Mamaland Safaris for a Uganda Safari 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.
