East Africa Safaris

Engagi Safaris. The Gorilla Safari.

*As seen in The Logbook January 2019.

Offering safaris in Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Tanzania and the DRC, Engagi Safaris is an African based tour agency with over a decade experience of working in the East African tourism industry. Highly experienced, insightful and affordable they offer all international and national visitors the chance to see Africa at its best.

Engagi means gorilla in the Southwestern Ugandan language of Chiga, and the nearby Virunga Mountains and the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park provide the only natural habitat for this beautiful and very private mountain gorilla.  This forms one of the major tourist attractions in the region.


Engagi Safaris provide more than just a tour, they provide an experience. For over ten years they’ve offered the most knowledgeable, engaging and unobtrusive gorilla tours in the tropical rainforests of Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. They have also been instrumental in raising awareness and appreciation for the thirteen different primate species found within these regions. These include chimpanzees, baboons, colobus, pottos, galagos and many different kinds of monkeys.

While gorillas and the great apes may be the mainstay of their service, Uganda and Rwanda offer so much more in terms of nature and wildlife. Uganda, as an example has a network of over 10 national parks that include vast savanna plains and forests that are home to lions, elephants, antelopes, giraffes, leopards and buffaloes to name but a few. The lakes and rivers that include the Nile, are natural habitats for hippos, crocodiles and other wild animals. And the bird species, drawn here by the vegetation alongside the Nile and the natural abundance of wildlife, are a treat for any ornithologist. 


Unlike the animals found on the savannah, Mountain Gorillas form close family ties and are private animals that need to be approached carefully. Engagi Safaris bring over ten years of experience to bringing people as close to our great cousins as possible without interfering or disrupting their lives. At the same time, they manage the balance between human safety and ape safety.

All of the guides are well trained and knowledgeable and share in the passion for seeing all wild animals and a real love for nature. Also, the business is one of the most professional, understanding that clients, potential, new and current, all have busy lives and need to have enquiries answered fast, bookings made efficiently, and transfers managed smoothly without disruption.
