Why Ansima Safaris ?
With or without a guide book, the best source of information is someone who has been there recently.
Our past clients are a mine of information and many of them send us feedback on arriving home after a most memorable safari.

Our scope is currently limited to Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda.
This is no coincidence as we purpose to focus on what we know and what we do best. Our guiding principle is to work with each client, family and group in an individual way.
We invite you to work with us, discussing your main interests in our safari destinations, style of travel (family, group or single, budget, moderate or luxury), time frame and any other factors that would influence your trip to come up with an itinerary best suited to you, your family or group.
Our tours offer the best value for your money.

Our Drivers /Guides
We recognize this for a fact! The success of your safari will largely depend on your driver/guide. It is because of this that we have a great team of carefully selected drivers /guides, well trained and experienced and with a vast knowledge of the wildlife and animal behaviour as well as the local fauna and flora. Our driver/guides speak English, Germany and French.
To make it easy and convenient for the traveller, all our safaris can depart daily with a minimum of 2 persons booking. We do this to allow our itineraries/safaris fit into your schedule, and prices are thus based on two persons and will go down with 3 and more participants.
Please provide us with this information during your first enquiry to help us send you a most appropriate quotation.
At the start of your safari, either Catherine Awori, or one of our tour consultants will take time to meet you preferably at our office (whenever possible) to introduce your driver/guide and take you through the safari program explaining what to expect while on the safari, provide background information and materials, discuss the dos and don’ts as well as answer any last minute questions that you may have.
