Why Book an African Safari With Us?


When it comes to booking an African safari, you might not know it, but you the customer has a lot of power in your hands. After all, it’s you who gets to choose which company to travel with. Home To Africa is incredibly proud of the range of safaris we have developed over our years in the industry. But we also know pride in our work and our team isn’t going to convince you to book an African safari with us. That’s why we’ve expanded the details on our about us page to highlight the reasons we think you should book an African safari with us and only with us. We hope you agree!

1. We Are Specialists in Our Field

Why travel with an all-rounder or a tour operator who sends customers anywhere in the world when you can book and travel directly with a safari specialist? That’s just one of the things Home To Africa offers all its customers.

We are a specialist in east African safaris, which means we know our countries of operation – Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, and Tanzania better than anyone else.

2. We Are Based in the Region

Our home has always been the Ugandan capital, Kampala. As a result, everyday we live a life similar to what you can expect on safari. We are locals. We know exactly what the conditions on the ground are at any time of year, and are well aware what’s possible and what’s not when booking an African safari.

In short, we have expertise which only comes with being based in our region of operation. Our Kampala base ensures we have close ties with all the hotels, camps, and national parks we celebrate. In turn, this ensures our customers get the best and most authentic experiences they can from the ‘pearl of Africa’ and its neighbors!

3. We Are Backed By the Industry

It’s one thing to say we’re a professional outfit, its quite another to prove it to the point that potential customers will want to book an African safari with us, whether that’s a safari in Uganda or a safari in Kenya.

However, you can book an African safari with us in confidence because our professionalism is demonstrated through our membership and registration with all the relevant industry bodies. Importantly, we are happy to be regulated by the Uganda Tourism Board, whilst being a member of the Association of Uganda Tour Operators, American Society of Travel Advisors, and United States Tour Operators Association.

4. Our Customers Really Rate Us!

The industry trusts us, but what about our previous guests? Yes, they love Home To Africa too! We’ve got hundreds of fantastic reviews for our tours on independent websites including Tripadvisor.

And if that wasn’t enough, Home To Africa was also given a Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award in 2022. These awards were created to celebrate businesses which consistently receive great reviews on the site, and also means we occupy the top ten percent of safari companies listed.

5. We Offer Tours to Amazing Destinations

Few other regions of the world offer quite so much as east Africa. Safaris in Tanzania are known across the globe for their quality wildlife viewing. Not only do safari goers have the chance to catch sight of the Big Five, but also take in the epic trek of two million animals which makes up the Great Wildebeest Migration. And that’s before we highlight the unique aspect of the Ngorongoro Crater or suggest the hike to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.

Then there’s the chance to stand just a few meters from habituated mountain gorillas – an activity that can only take place in Uganda and Rwanda. We also have a range of tours taking in sightings of other primate species including chimpanzees, and no shortage of cultural tours either.

6. We Provide Tailor-Made Experiences

From our Uganda safaris to our safaris in Rwanda, we’ve got itineraries to suit every type of traveler, whether you’re looking to explore the waterways of Murchison Falls National Park, or drift across the waters of Lake Victoria to Ssese Island.

At the same time, should you prefer something a little different, we’re still here to help. We can shape and customize tours to the region to fit exactly what you’re looking for when you book an African safari with us. So why not stay that extra day in Queen Elizabeth National Park or treat yourself to a top-end lodge in Akagera?

7. What You See Is What You Get

All our itineraries clearly show what’s included and what’s not in the tour price with simple bullet point lists. On booking, you’ll therefore know exactly what your money is covering – accommodation, driver-guide, meals, transportation, and park fees are usually covered. Importantly, so are gorilla trekking permits, should you be joining us for some of our most popular tours to see the world’s last remaining mountain gorillas.

8. We Are Easy to Reach

Finally, should there be anything you’re not sure about, we are incredibly easy to reach, and aim to reply to your query as quickly as we can. Our website contains an online contact form, but you can also reach out to us by phone, WhatsApp, and by email.

Whichever way you contact us, you’ll be connected with one of our knowledgeable team, who will go out of their way to ensure you get an answer to your question!
