Our Team of Experts at Gorilla Expeditions – Active African Vacations
Active African vacations team comprises of capable and competent office staff and high qualified driver/guides and tour leaders, who all possess the requisite academic qualifications and years of valuable experience. Among us we speak a range of European and African languages, including English, Dutch, Swahili, Luganda, Kinyarwanda and many other local dialects found all across East Africa, empowering us to manage and handle all of our guest’s tour requirements right from conception through operation to closing, for optimal satisfaction.
DRIVER/GUIDES & TOUR LEADERS
Since we are aware of the critical role a guide plays in our guests’ holiday experience, we hire only the best. Of our highly experience full time guides, many used to be national parks rangers with Uganda Wildlife Authority and therefore have extensive local knowledge of the flora and fauna, history, culture, geography. Some avid ornithologists complete our pack.
They also attend regular courses with the accrediting local USAGA (Uganda Safari Guides Association), are members of the Uganda Bird Guides Club and Conservation Societies. In addition, we provide German, Spanish and Japanese speaking Tour Leader/Guides, as well as accompanying translators in any of the other major international languages upon request.
