Kikooko Africa Safaris Ltd. was started from a singular passion growing up: to share the love of Uganda with the rest of the world.
Since its founding in 2013, Kikooko Africa Safaris has grown to become an international brand known for providing immersive safaris that have a positive impact.
We combine expert local knowledge with international standards of service and professionalism to provide safaris in Uganda and throughout East Africa that explore the expansive wilderness in an intimate, thoughtful, and responsible way.
We’ve been treating guests to personalised, 5-star tours since our launch in 2013, and we can’t wait to welcome you next.

East Africa is the only place in the world where you’ll find the rare mountain gorilla. Immerse yourself in the romance and wonder of this encounter in the misty mountains of Uganda and Rwanda, your perfect opportunity to witness these gentle giants up close.
In Rukiga, the local language of the Bakiga people, Kikooko means “animal.”
We chose Kikooko (pronounced “chick-oh-ko”) because the diverse range of animals in Uganda is such an enticing reason to visit and we are passionate about their conservation and protection.
By fostering that connection between the traveler and our home – the people, the land, and the wildlife – we are able to use our trips to make a real impact in East Africa.
Each week, we share blogs to help you make the most of your East African safari, from facts about the wildlife and wilderness to stories about the impact on our community projects.
