Denis Kigongo Victor

Founder & Managing Director

Team Leader (Head Tour Guide).

Hi! My name is Denis Kigongo Victor, the head tour guide and founder of Msafiri Tours. 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 ten years. I was born in Iganga, I speak fluent Luganda, Lusoga and English and I have expert knowledge on Uganda and its culture.

In 1999, I came to England to study and since then, I have lived and worked between both countries. I started Msafiri Tours to offer an alternative for people who wanted to see Africa, meet the people, see the culture and the wildlife, but also make a difference as they did so.

My team and I are always on the hunt for new destinations and new projects to support and develop, and most importantly, to make a difference. We are pioneering new and exciting travel experiences in Uganda and in East Africa in a responsible and sustainable way.

Msafiri Tours is all about adventure, exploring authentic destinations and sharing exciting life-changing experiences. I look forward to meeting all you on one of our tours – become a Msafiri (An East African traveller) with us today! And i would like to thank you for your continued support and making what we do so very worthwhile.

Stephanie Dao

USA Area Coordinator


Stephanie acquired her Bachelor of Arts in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations and a minor in Anthropology from California State University, Fullerton in Southern California, USA.

During her college career, she found her passion for making things happen on a global and personal level in her work for non-profit and cause-oriented organizations. After graduating with her B.A., Stephanie fulfilled a life-long dream and embarked on a journey to East Africa, where she spent a month working intimately with the local Ugandan community to help develop various community projects and provide supplies for a school, a medical clinic, and a vocational centre for needy African youth.

Upon her return to America, she realized she wanted to continue expanding her horizons by working for a meaningful organization that made a difference in the lives of people. Stephanie joined the Msafiri Tours team as a U.S. Area Coordinator in November 2012 and has been thrilled to find the rewards of advocating sustainable travel and recruiting volunteers.

Stephanie’s passion is found in her desire to explore, learn, and create a meaningful difference in the lives of others. By sharing her experience and knowledge with others, she hopes to educate and inspire more people to do the same

Remmy Kityo

Senior Driver / Tour Guide

Tour Guide.

I am a safari driver and guide in Uganda with Msafiri Tours 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 industrial design degree at Nkumba University in Uganda and over the years, I have acquired lots of skills and knowledge of Uganda, its people and wildlife.

At Msafiri Tours, 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.

Geoffrey Kirunda

Driver / Guide

Tour Guide.

Geoffrey 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 Msafiri
