Our Founder, Samuel Rukundo started his journey as a Potter in one of the mountaineering companies specialising in the climbing and hiking of mountain Ruwenzori also known as the “Mountains of the Moon”. Thereafter Samuel did a professional course in tour guiding and bird watching (Introduction to birding with USAGA) which shaped his way as a  freelancing safari guide for various safari  companies in Uganda, Tanzania and  Rwanda for seven years. However, he felt that the safaris being offered were sometimes too structured and stiff, not giving you the flexibility to venture out and explore the wonders of the African wilderness in different ways. Samuel Also holds a Diploma in Tourism Operations and Management from Nkumba University.

He decided to start his own Safari Company, together with his fellow guides could be creative and imaginative. Hence Primate Journeys Africa Ltd was born from this dream and starting from scratch. Primate Journeys now brings guides together to teach guests about East Africa – Founded in 2013, Primate Journeys Africa is one of the regions largest leisure tour operators, offering packaged and FIT voyages to over 6 destinations in the Our major destinations being Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

It takes time to create something that lasts. We’ve been shaping our business for a decade now, today we proudly support some of the regions most trusted brands in the tour and travel business, hospitality and corporate sectors, we continue to expand our presence beyond Uganda with other offices in Rwanda.
