About Kwezi Outdoors

Kwezi means “moon”. The name is inspired by our trek into the Rwenzori Mountains – Uganda’s highest and Africa’s third highest mountain. Ancient Greek geographer and philosopher, Ptolemy, in his search for the source of the Nile River, called these mysterious ranges the Mountains of the Moon.

About Kwezi Outdoors

Kwezi means “moon”. The name is inspired by our trek into the Rwenzori Mountains – Uganda’s highest and Africa’s third highest mountain. Ancient Greek geographer and philosopher, Ptolemy, in his search for the source of the Nile River, called these mysterious ranges the "Mountains of the Moon".

Wherever we went, we sang praises of Uganda – the land fondly known as the Pearl of Africa. We took inspiration from the vast savannah landscapes rich with wildlife and the numerous lakes and rivers that housed aquatic secrets of the deep. We shared the stories with the world in any way we could, through the media, using photos and even word of mouth. We took students on missions trips and media teams on familiarisation trips to Uganda’s biodiverse national parks. We shared honeymoon ideas with friends and many times just went out to have a great time.

In 2018, Kwezi Outdoors opened its doors to the world as a safari and tour operator in Uganda. Kwezi means “moon”.

Like the moon reflects the light from the sun and illuminates the darkness, Kwezi Outdoors shares the wonders of Uganda with the world through our safaris. Our choice to focus on showcasing Uganda to the world stems from the diversity of natural wonders spread throughout the country. This is the land of our ancestors; this is our home – a place we know well and desire to share with you in positive unforgettable safari experiences.

Today at Kwezi Outdoors, we share a love and respect for the great outdoors and wild places of Uganda. Yet even though we are passionate about the outdoors, we know that there are negative environmental impacts that can stem from our travel and explorations. That is why we support a variety of initiatives that economically and socially empower communities; promote the dignity and honour of the locals; and participate in the ongoing fight to save and improve our planet in whatever small way we can. 

So every time you travel with us, rest assured that your safari experience helps transform the lives of families and communities – positively.
