About Home To Africa Tours & Travel

Once Again Jambo ! Welcome

The first thing you’ll notice about Home to Africa is how much we love travel and safari. And, how we love sharing the sights of our beautiful country. You’ll feel the excitement, as together, we plan your visit according to your exact wishes.
When we create your custom-tailored tour, we put our heart into it, so you know we are dedicated to your special requests. Whether you’re an individual, family or group, we will craft an adventure to suit your expectations.

Gorilla Safaris

There are only about 800 gorillas left in the world. But you will find most of them in Uganda. Join us in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, where we will take you trekking to the heart of Mountain Gorilla country.

Your journey through the dense rainforest may be strenuous but your reward can be the sighting of a family of gorillas… as curious about you as you are about them. Like ghosts, they suddenly appear in the lush jungle, eyes wide, staring at you. Then, just as suddenly they can vanish. This electrifying experience is at once, authentic and dreamlike.

Cultural Safaris

Mankind began in Africa. There are so many ancient cultures for you to experience here, rich with color and deep ritual. Join us for our personal tours to authentic villages.

The trips are low-impact so as not to interfere with daily life. But you will be immersed in traditional ceremonies such as weddings, rites of passage and dances. Here you will learn the meanings behind the symbols, dress and movement. Prepare to be transformed.

Daily Excursions

For those here on business with no time for a safari or those who’ve already completed their safari but are looking for more experiences… we offer exciting day trips.

Take a city tour and see the local sights. Explore beautiful Lake Victoria. Or, we can take you and your party for a drive to Jinja for a day of water rafting. There are so many possibilities for a day of fun or relaxation.

Big 5 Safaris

Africa is famous for its “Big Five” game animals – lion, elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros. In Uganda’s parks such as Murchison Falls, you will spot rhinos in their natural habitat, along with elephants and Cape buffalos.

For those who are patient, there are lions and leopards here as well. You will also find Rothschild giraffes, Hartebeests, waterbucks and hippos.

Primate Safaris

The primates of Uganda - gorillas, monkeys and chimpanzees – are accessible through specialized excursions. Go mountain gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

In Volcanoes National Park you’ll have the opportunity to spot the rare golden monkey. And to see the greatest variety of primates and monkeys a visit to Nyungwe cannot be passed up. Here you will find chimpanzees, golden, velvet and silver monkeys and the olive baboon.

Tailor-made Tours

Our specialized tours are curated for you. What does that mean? You have something in mind for your personalized safari, something unique and special. We get that.

And we will carry your ideas to the next step. We’ve got hands-on experience in all aspects of our beautiful country – from its people to the wildlife to the rich landscape. Together we will bring to life your imagined ideas for a perfect safari experience.

Holiday Safaris

Safari Holidays have become an increasingly popular activity. Spend the entire day on safari, taking in the “Big Five” and a variety of other birds and animals.

This is a wonderful opportunity to see many of Africa’s species in their natural habitat.
