About Us

Welcome to The Tourist Centre

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 Mr and Mrs Wakudumira, 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. And, whether you are a group, solo traveller, student or couple, we will have a safari that suits your budget as we have a range of safaris from budget camping safaris to more luxurious tailored safaris.

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!
