Our Drivers

Since our drivers are also your guides, we refer to them as driver guides which is self-explanatory from the term we use. Our friendly and experienced driver guides are fully prepared to provide you with a memorable and outstanding safari. You are in the hands of knowledge professionals. The guides frequently travel around east Africa to update their knowledge about the localities as well as looking for new destinations.

The experienced driver- guides are personally trained by us and well versed on various parks, game, birds, plants and relevant information pertaining to touring. Our drivers and representatives can draw on their local knowledge to ensure that you get the most out of your holiday when you are in Uganda. They can also give insights in to the real Africa, letting you learn about the country you are in as well as the flora and fauna.

We attract staff that are passionate about Ansima safari’s fundamental defining principles which includes dedication to the following:

  • Care of the land
  • Care of the wildlife
  • Care of the local people
  • Care of the guests

Training is a way of life at Ansima safaris and we have carefully selected driver guides that understand the core value of learning and sharing their knowledge.

Our guests have always provided valuable and positive feedback about our drivers which really reflects on the highest level of training that we have continuously provided to our entire team at Ansima safaris which has enabled the people we employ to truly become an asset for our company. Furthermore, we would like to point out that all of our drivers are permanently hired on a full time basis as opposed to contract basis. The advantage is that our drivers receive a fixed monthly salary together with accommodation and meals that are paid for by us. Therefore, our drivers are happy and in return they provide an excellent service to our clients. Unfortunately other companies in Uganda try to cut costs by having contract drivers who are paid much less and therefore unable to match the kind of service that our full time drivers offer.
