Founded by Katende James, a Ugandan native, born in central Uganda from a humble family background, raised by loving grandparents and later joined Bulamu children’s Village in 2007 and by then it was under different Dutch group sponsorships.

Whenever we received these Dutch visitors, they had to visit either one of the wildlife national park and I used to ask myself why? By then I was a young boy, until I was told by some Dutch friends that they want to see the beauty of the wild animals in their habitants since in their country it’s not there. Fortunately, one time I got a chance to join them when they sponsored a whole group to Murchison falls and what I saw on that trip triggered my interest, passion and love for nature, the vegetation was different, different scenery, lovely lions, elephants, magnificent waterfalls and many more animals.

I was impressed that Uganda had been so blessed to have such beautiful nature. my passion for nature kept on growing and I had to keep it afloat by pursuing a course which is nature related and that was Tourism. Later in 2014, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in science and Tourism operations Management from Nkumba university. Fortunately, I did my industry training from one of the biggest Dutch Tour Company in Uganda, later I was retained as a full employee for about 5 years which added a lot of experience and brightened my career. I interact with different tourism professionals, networked, traveled to different Uganda’s top tourist destinations, camps, lodges, helping to get hands on information and knowledge in the tourism industry which finally made what I am today!

With all my passion, love and the travel experience of about 6 years in the Tourism industry, my dream came true that now I started up “Bulamu safaris” to share the beauty and knowledge about Uganda to all travelers all over the world at very affordable rates since its one of the problems many visitors face on their travels here!.

I do love my country “Uganda” and want to showcase and share its unique nature to the people around the world. Making and meeting new friends, traveling to New places is my hobby! For the little I have travelled, I think Uganda is the best travel destination around the Globe with its Gorillas, Chimpanzees, abundant wildlife, beautiful landscapes, various lakes, Unique Culture & friendly people, with the world’s longest River “Nile” and many more to discover!

Therefore, when planning your journey to Uganda, just try us for the best Uganda safari experience and my assurance is expecting to be dealing with a reliable, trustworthy, travel Professional who loves what we are doing!
