The Great Trekkers Safaris We a sustainable and fair tour company fronting community based tourism.

The Great Trekkers Safaris was started in March 2016 by 2 dedicated social-entrepreneurs Rogers & Herbert both driven with a genuine passion for tourism and community development. As young entrepreneurs we realized a genuine need of starting up a social enterprise which would not only benefit the company owners but would also benefit and develop the entire communities. We happen to come from Western Uganda widely regarded as a tourism hub with the best cultural, nature and wildlife attractions but we realized that the available tour companies’ only front profit making at the expense of the people in our communities who play the biggest role in nature and wildlife conservation. So we came up with the idea of starting up a community based tour company that fronts Community Based Tourism for sustainable growth and development.
What we want to Achieve;
We intend to raise funds to help us in facilitating the 2 wild life conservation clubs we launched in Rwenjeru and Nyabuhama community. These communities are neighboring Lake Mburo national park in Uganda and well known to be dominated by hunters. From our own efforts we started these wild life clubs to teach people the dangers of poaching and environmental degradation through dance & drama performances. Currently we need to raise 15,000USD to use in acquiring dance & musical instruments, and to construct a community library hall where we can always have our performances conducted from.
