As the owner and primary tour operator, I began Explorers Biking Safaris out of my personal passion for biking and extensive experience in tourism and hospitality. I have been working in tourism for over 15 years. My background has included being a cook for overland trips and moving on to being the trip-leader for Wildlife Kenya: facilitating camping safaris all over East Africa for 6 years for a New Zealand-based biking company called Escape Adventures. My current position over the last 9 years has been as the Manager of Explorers Backpackers in Jinja, where I have my base of operations for biking safaris. I lead a team of local guides who are experienced and highly trained in travel operation, Ugandan geography and wildlife, cross-cultural interactions, bicycle mechanics, and first-aid.
We offer a variety of biking options, destinations, and tailor-made itineraries. For any experience with our company, we offer all the necessary equipment, transportation vehicles, and all travel logistics. Our trips offer the chance to see the country up close, explore off-road, meet local people, enjoy local food, and understand daily Ugandan life, all while witnessing breathtaking nature and landscapes.
