Kikooko Africa Safari's Impact

How traveling with Kikooko supports Uganda's communities

At Kikooko Africa Safaris, we believe in supporting the communities that make our country so special. 

We invest to fund and support community initiatives that educate local people about wildlife conservation and environmental protection and facilitate action to put learning into practice.

We are happy to be able to share the success of our projects with you. Because of your trips and travels to and through East Africa, we are able to spread these benefits with the communities we travel to – and the places we’re from.

Kikooko Community Projects

Loan Saving Scheme

With the aid of a Swiss client, we have been able to develop a pilot project that loans community members money at just a 2% rate. So far, the results of this project have been positive and the income has been put into financial community saving groups.

Land Investment

Part of the revenue from Kikooko has gone to purchase land that provides jobs to the community through agriculture projects. This includes farming projects, entrepreneurial activities like bee keeping and goat and sheep rearing, and environmental conservation projects, including tree planting.

Health Centre & Primary Schools

Revenues also go to support a health centre and two primary schools in our founder’s home village.

Kampala Reading Project

We support two villages outside of Kampala with a community reading project. Our goal is to improve the reading culture of our communities with this book-sharing idea. This was especially well received and important during the pandemic when our children were not in schools.

Our Impact By The Numbers

Through tours and our accommodations, Kikooko Africa Safaris directly employs 13 families. That employment includes our drivers, guides, and staff, for an impact on an estimated 150 people.

Through our community projects, Kikooko supports 12 villages and over 5,000 people in South Western Uganda. These include villages in Kiyebe, Mushangye, Kigumira, Mafuga, Kashasha, and Ruhija. Many of our Kikooko clients have been able to share direct interactions with our friends and family here.
