Hornbill Trek & Safaris

"Some safari companies in East Africa pay lip-service to responsible tourism, but at Hornbill Treks and Safaris, travel ethics and support of the local communities are embedded in the very essence of the company.

I highly recommend them to tour operators who want to offer reliably-run trips with a positive impact in Uganda and Rwanda."
