Team Leader, Ssamba Foundation

I am Isaac Ssamba, the Founder and Team leader at Ssamba Safaris, Founder and Executive Chairman at Ssamba Foundation and a Travelers’ Host at Ssamba Homestay. I am an adventure travel and road trips addict and so I founded a knit-community of adventure seekers which I named- Vacation Hunters – East Africa. Where I live, I am popularly known as “Master Isaac”, “Councilor Isaac” or “Kyampisi Ambassador”.

If you choose Uganda as your next destination for adventure or volunteer holiday, I would like to be your Personal Guide and Travel Adviser. I was born here and have been a registered guide for the last 10 years. My private and group tours and safaris have been successfully introducing people from all around the world to the wonders and excitement of this beautiful country- Uganda since 2006.

I speak English (and I am learning German & Swahili and recently I picked interest in Spanish) and my tours and trips will show you all the best places to visit both on and off the beaten track. This website will introduce you to many Uganda adventure activities and many ways to make a positive difference. I can easily arrange things for you to do that will accommodate people of all ages.

I organize and arrange volunteer placements for people who are interested in giving back to the communities while on their holiday in Uganda. Programs range from Teaching, Healthcare, Working with Refugees, Wildlife Conservation, Agriculture & Farm work, Environment Conservation, Games and Sports, Construction and so many other projects.

I can organize your airport transfers and ground transport as well as help you with your hotel bookings and even guide you to fabulous nightlife experiences. I offer basically customized tours and volunteer placements and I also offer “host family” accommodation at my home to help you save on extreme hotel bills in Uganda.

I provide you with a service which enables you to enjoy all of your holiday without having to spend your time going to all the travel and booking agents. I take care of everything for you, whether you are here for a few days or a more extended period.

Please don't fail to contact me, if you have any inquiries.
