Meet The Team

Joseph Amooti
Founder & Managing Director

Hi! My name is Joseph Amooti, the head of the Uganda tours team and founder of Zuri Safari Trails Ltd. I was born and educated in Uganda where I developed a love for wildlife and our beautiful culture. I have led cultural and group community tours in Uganda for more than 12 years.

I speak fluent Lutooro, lunyoro, Luyankole, Luganda, Lusoga and English and I have expert knowledge on Uganda and its culture.

Godfrey Gabunga
Tour Guide

Godfrey is a driver/guide in Uganda. He never misses pointing out a site of interest, a beautiful bird in a bush, a chameleon on the road, which we would easily miss, or a lion in the distance, which could only be seen through binoculars!

He will regale you with anecdotes from his extensive travel expeditions and use his experience to show you the parts of Uganda that many do not get to see. He is an engaging and charming guide whose knowledge and experience is greatly valued at Zuri Safari Trails Ltd.

Moses Kiyaga
Tour Guide

I am a safari driver and guide in Uganda with Zuri Safari Trails Ltd team and I have a passion for nature, which helps me to connect people to the jungle life. I feel privileged to take people on safari. I started doing this job as soon as I finished my Degree in International Business at Kampala International University in Uganda and over the years, I have acquired lots of skills and knowledge of Uganda, its people and wildlife.

At Zuri Safari Trails Ltd, we are like one big family, partly because the founder director is my older brother, but also because I love the people I work with, and I love the animals I work around in the field.
