Stride Take

Founded in 2012 by Miriam Kyasiimire, Kagera offers in depth, locally run safaris and gorilla treks in Uganda and Rwanda.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They add a community touch to all their safaris. Travelers have the opportunity to visit the community on whatever safari they are on, whether gorilla trekking safari, wildlife or birding tour. Cars are safari vans and safari landcruisers which typically carry a maximum of 7 people, for each person to have access to a window. If the group is bigger they use more vehicles or take a coaster bus if they want to travel in one vehicle.

Who Travels With Them?

Customers are usually individual travelers, groups, or families; age ranges anything from 5 years to 70 years. The activity levels differ because some people engage in activities like gorilla trekking which is hectic whereas others stick to only game drives in national park. Most of the tours fall in the category of mid range pricing.

Where Do They Operate?

Uganda and Rwanda

How Does it Work?

Safari cars via road transport. They also arrange internal flights to especially Kidepo valley and Bwindi impenetrable national parks in Uganda. In Rwanda there are opportunities for helicopter rides.

Why Travel With Them?

They are a small independent and local agency that pays special attention to details. They are passionate about responsible tourism and work to provide opportunities for the local communities they work with to earn from tourism. They offer suggested itineraries, but encourage you to tweak for your exact preferences.

From Kagera Safaris

Kagera Safaris Limited is an Eco tourism tour company fully registered in Uganda with operations in Uganda, Rwanda and entire East Africa. We provide high quality safari tours and destination management services in East Africa for individuals and travel companies from across the globe. We plan gorilla tours, wildlife tours, birding tours, hiking, cultural and community tours. We offer authentic gap year opportunities, educational tours for high school and university students.

We are passionate about linking tourism to rural community development so the ‘tourism dollar’ can reach the communities. This ensures communities living adjacent to the park and those along the ‘tourism route’ get actively engaged in conservation of wildlife because they benefit directly.

We encourage our clients to visit communities and ‘home stays’ and or engage in a community activity that lasts from from 1 hour to several hours. The activities include village walks which often lead to local schools and health centers, cooking and gardening offering you insight in every day lives of the local people.

Our tailor-made safaris consider the client’s needs, time, and budget offering them the opportunity to appreciate the beauty and diversity of East Africa in comfort and style. All our treks and safaris are Eco-friendly; we respect the environment and culture of the local communities. The itineraries offered on the website act as examples, you are encouraged to create the itinerary of your choice together with our staff.


Founder: Miriam Kyasiimire

I love traveling and I enjoy the countryside. From an early age I always looked forward to a time of visiting a relative living far from our home which meant traveling for hours – while others dreaded it. I love sharing knowledge of East Africa with visitors who often experience something different from what they read or watched on TV (too bad sometimes media concentrates on the negative). 

In 2012 I started Kagera Safaris from a love of travel and nature and from a love for youth and community development. I are passionate about creating opportunities for others and my desire is to incorporate travel to national parks with visits to communities so that they benefit directly from tourism income.

I and the team have been to all the destinations we share here, several times. We offer a personal touch to every trip – individually tailored with detailed information and respond to your need and wishes as best as we can. We have been involved in putting together great experiences for people exploring Uganda, Rwanda and East Africa in general for over 4 years now. We look forward to planning your tour to Uganda, Rwanda and other destinations in East Africa.
