The Tourist Centre is a specialist safari company offering a wide variety of tours, from gorilla trekking trips to bespoke big game safaris, to a number of destinations in East Africa. Originally founded by a local family in Jinja, Uganda, we have been running tours for visitors from all over the globe since 1996. Since we started, our aim has remained the same: to reveal the natural wonders of East Africa in a way that benefits both our guests and local communities.

Over the years we have taken thousands of visitors to explore the beauty of Uganda (“The Pearl of Africa”), Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda. On these adventures we’ve hosted families, solo travellers, couples, students, groups of friends and specialist wildlife interest groups and are happy to tailor a trip to your particular needs. With such a wealth of experience, we know when and where to go to have the best chance of seeing the unique and stunning wildlife East Africa has to offer.

Come with us to trek for gorillas through the lush tropical undergrowth of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, search for the tree-sleeping lions of the Queen Elizabeth National Park, explore the vast Serengeti grasslands, brave the white water rapids at the source of the Nile or experience the bustle of Nairobi and Kampala. The adventure of a lifetime is waiting!

“Our group had an amazing time on safari. Daudi was excellent, allowing us to tailor the whole trip around things we wanted to do, and ensuring that we got the best price. Ojok was a fantastic guide, getting us as close as he could to some great wildlife….. I would definitely recommend the Tourist Centre for anyone wanting to go on Safari in Uganda. A+”

Some friends and I travelled to Uganda for a holiday earlier this year and we spent the majority of it on a trip organised by The Tourist Centre. Before arriving, The Tourist Centre presented a number of different tour options and we were able to choose one that perfectly fitted our interests, budget and the time we had available. Thanks to the local knowledge of The Tourist Centre guide we saw an amazing array of wildlife, far more than any of us thought we would, including gorillas, a leopard and four separate lion sightings. In addition to having a very keen pair of eyes, our guide Ojok took excellent care of us during the trip and was also great company. I can’t recommend The Tourist Centre highly enough!

Our week long holiday in the Serengeti was the most memorable experience of our lives. Having previously travelled with Tourist Centre we expected excellent service once more, and indeed The Tourist Centre’s attention to detail and the staff’s depth of knowledge made for a priceless experience of enjoying the very best of the phenomenal action-packed calving season. Thank you to the entire team
