I come from a humble background in the village of Busumba, in the countryside of Busia, Uganda. From childhood, I was interested in nature and landscapes, and geography was always my favorite subject. Hence, when I was older I ventured into the tourism industry.
Apart from travelling, spending time in nature and finding quiet moments in the jungle, I also love to read. Protecting the natural world that I love is also very important to me and environmental conservation is a priority in my travel planning and execution model.
Since 2011, I have been planning safaris for all kinds of travelers to Uganda, Rwanda, DR Congo, Kenya and Tanzania, which has given me in-depth experience planning day by day and case by case, learning from the needs of different clients. I like paying attention to the details of my clients’ needs, which helps me go above and beyond their expectations. In return, I have satisfied customers!

Joseph's best travel experience
One of the most amazing experiences I have had is gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. The park truly is an amazing place, with a misty jungle covering steep slopes. Gorilla trekking is an adventure, the higher you go the more tasking the experience is, but coming face-to-face with the great apes is an amazing memory I will carry with me for a lifetime. Recently, I was tracking one of the gorilla families, the Rushegura family, in the Buhoma side of the park. A gorilla came close to me and I felt something touch my head — and then I realized the gorilla had run away with my hat! This was an amazing experience.
