Our Story


Engagi Safaris is a Ugandan owned tour company with over 10 years’ experience and first-hand knowledge in operating safaris in Uganda, Rwanda and beyond. The company has grown from humbling beginnings when Basiima Robert founded the company in 2010 after working as a freelance guide and driver for over 5 years with multiple companies. From his experience as a guide, he saw what was lacking in other companies and decided to start up Engagi Safaris using his first-hand knowledge and experience of the country. Engagi safaris now offer tailor made itineraries according to your interest, time and budget.

We have carefully selected our guides and drivers who have a wealth of knowledge and experience to make sure that you have a once in a lifetime experience.

In 2016 Engagi Safaris opened a guest resort  on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi in south west Uganda, called Lake Bunyonyi Rock Resort. This Eco-friendly lodge offers a comfortable, affordable and friendly place to stay on your Ugandan safari to south western Uganda. Whether you travel for gorilla trekking in Bwindi forest or Mgahinga National Park, golden monkey trekking, Batwa community visits or just a quiet place to relax and take in the beauty of Uganda, this lodge is the perfect option. Our professional staff (chefs, waiters, waitresses, housekeepers) ensure smooth service delivery
