Andrew “dru” Nyakana was born and raised in Uganda, but has spent most of his life in the United States. His passion for traveling around the world and learning new cultures inspired him to create an avenue that would provide the best safaris with cultural enrichment. Andrew’s international experience coupled with a deep passion for nature is what has enriched his expertise in Tourism.

I have been very fortunate to visit many parts of the world. But Africa has always held a special place in my heart. Africa is such an extraordinary place, filled with wonderful experiences in nature, wildlife and adventure. So, I wanted to create an avenue where my friends across the United States and everyone around the world would get an incredible safari adventure with learning opportunities about this great land.

One of our core values is to ensure that the time our guests spend with us is filled with unforgettable experiences that can be treasured for the rest of their lives.

Andrew is also passionate about giving back to the less fortunate. Part of the proceeds will be used to help underprivileged school children in different parts of Uganda.
