Churchill Safaris is a leading provider of tailored and group safaris across Uganda and Rwanda. Focusing on individuals, families, and small groups we can cater to any client, providing in-depth product knowledge and personalized service.
“When Sir Winston Churchill termed Uganda in his book My African Journey as “the pearl of Africa” he may have been referring to the windswept plains of queen Elizabeth, or the untouched beauty of the bwindi impenetrable forest.
Whatever his reasoning, it is undeniable that Uganda, and the rest of East Africa has held the world’s imagination captive for decades. Whether you are exploring East Africa for the first time, planning the ultimate romantic holiday, or taking your family on a dream wildlife safari, East Africa holds something for everyone.”
Our company was founded in 2000 by Ether Birungi, a certified accountant who saw Uganda’s potential as a major East African tourism destination. Born and raised in Uganda, Ether’s passion for her country and commitment to detail convinced visitors from all over the world to explore East Africa for themselves.
The company has since grown and established offices abroad while remaining a truly homegrown, Ugandan effort. Churchill continues to excel in providing quality travel experiences to discerning travelers.
As Churchill grew Ether was keen to keep the personal touch that first brought success and so today she manages the day today operations with her dedicated team. Ether’s beliefs are at the heart of everything we do, which is why we are dedicated to the conservation of Uganda’s natural and cultural resources and actively support local tourism initiatives and socio-economic activities both in Uganda and Rwanda. Churchill has a number of projects through which visitors can give back to local communities during their stay. Represented on SafariBookings.com

As indigenous people, we have a very intimate knowledge of the cultures, land and history of East Africa. Ether and the Churchill team have personally visited all the destinations and accommodation we offer and regularly make return trips to make sure everything meets with our high standards. Although we have sample itineraries and group trips, our specialty is creating custom safaris, listening to what you would like to see and experience during your trip and creating a truly unique experience. Our in-depth knowledge allows us to take you off the beaten path, to explore the cultures and lands of East Africa!
At the core of every successful safari is a great guide. The majority of the comments regarding our services are centred on the professionalism of our guides. The majority of our returning clients request the same guide on their second and third trip, and of course we always accommodate! Many of our guides have been with us since the founding of the company, and over the years have become experts in their field. Our guides speak a variety of languages including English, German, French, and Spanish and we can always arrange for other languages given prior notice.
Whether you book through us or piece together your own safari directly through the hotels and lodges you will find the price is the same. Our competitive pricing and extensive contacts throughout East Africa allows us to provide our clients with incredible value. Our dedication to securing the best prices while delivering impeccable service is at the heart of everything we do.
