Kenny James Nek – Operations/field guide

Born and raised in Kampala with a God directed life, I am an artist, a worship leader, husband, lover of creation. It has always been my goal to showcase Uganda as a tourism destination and promote sustainable tourism for the future generation. I trained with Steady Safaris and have since joined as an operations manager.

There is nothing more I love than interacting, entertaining, educating and promoting the good reputation of hospitality for people to enjoy a truly African experience not found elsewhere but in the Africa.

With a variety of attractions, accommodation, transport and supporting facilities, Uganda has a lot to offer from the time of arrival to departure day, you will have an experience of a life time.

A strong believer in team work, we go the extra mile to provide quality services to all people from all walks for life! Pack those bags people, you have to see to believe!

Carlos Olaaka – Manager/co-owner – Field guide/Tour manager

I am a Ugandan male, born and raised in Uganda. I am trained as a computer engineer yet practice as naturalist, this I did as a result of my love for nature and what it has to offer.

I am a Christians and I am thankful to God for the gift of creation! I cannot imagine a better continent that God could have chosen to preserve his creation like Africa!

Uganda, is the Pearl of Africa, a nation blessed with beautiful people, wide range of birds, animals and much more! The different attractions like the great beasts, the birds of the air and even the flora, will leave a great impression on you, a great part of which shall never leave you. A visit to the Pearl of Africa is worth more than words can say!

I encourage you to come one, come all - you can be sure that a visit in Uganda is worth a million anywhere in the world. Welcome to the Pearl of Africa!
