WILD INTENSE – Take your Safari or Tour With Trained Local Nature Guides and Directly Support the Communities.
WILD INTENSE may not appear so deferent from all other local tour operators over the internet because we all nearly use the same marketing material. We all use similar keywords for internet marketing which brings about similar ranking in search engines. We photography the same animals, and if some business can not photograph them, they will buy them, so we use the same animals’ photos.
Our strength lies in the prime points that we pay attention to and regularly monitor, and this is how we have been able to register tours and reliable recommendation. Most of our clients have been communicated to by friends and family who have travelled with us. Word of mouth has done us most magic, and this is because our local guides have led outstanding professional quality trips. Excellent guides and not compromising quality for price constitute significantly to our credits.
We do cover the same locations as other operators, but our attention to details and circuit planning is significantly different and unique. This is the only unbeatable part of the competition. WILD INTENSE guides have mastered the skill of being part of nature; when you become part of something, you start to think and perform like, and also respect. This is absolute mastery of nature.
Before our very considerate team came up with WILD INTENSE to offer unique Eastern Gorillas trekking tours and typical African Safaris, they concentrated on the very demanding AVIAN SAFARIS. At AVIAN SAFARIS, we do exclusive birding tours, but while out there observing birds, everything requires attention. For example; a guide has to know what they eat, which trees they love to feed and roost and where they go at what time of the day or year. This kind of skill requires much patience; therefore, some of our clients insisted we would deliver great safari experiences for no bird watchers too. Their non-birding friends and family were WILD INTENSE’S first clients.
Our guides clearly understand the difference between a mammal and nature safari from a birding tour. So for travellers that travel with WILD INTENSE and would love to know a little about birds, they always have that advantage, but the guides tend to keep it to mammals not to bore non-birders.
YOUR SAFARI GUIDE
We believe a professional tour guide is a prime ingredient for any safari; our guides are chosen very carefully from local communities and on merit. They are personable, knowledgeable men and women with impressive academic and professional backgrounds. They have all the skills to conduct an extended tour, professionally and to make sure every individual has a great time.
They have gone through nature and tour guiding pieces of training that have been arranged by local authorities and credible guiding associations. They belong to local umbrella associations like Uganda Safari Guides Association (USAGA).
Our Knowledgeable guides fluently speak English, and there is hardly a question they will not answer. They are linguistic and have the gift to mingle with locals in their areas of expertise quickly. This is ideal in remote Africa where communication can cause significant challenges in case of emergencies.

RELIABLE 4×4 VEHICLES
We have full time 4×4 vehicles, suitable for a variety of road conditions and game drives with ‘pop-up’ tops to maximise birding and game viewing even in the savannah amidst the predators that that travellers tend to favour.
We like to keep participants in a single-vehicle. So, if we have a group of seven, we can run the tour in an extended safari modified 4×4 land cruiser or van. For groups more than that and not exceeding ten, we use the COSTA or ROSA (4X4 busses). All high clearance vehicles with clear sliding windows for wildlife viewing and photography. This way, participants have the comfort of easily seeing wildlife during drives.
All vehicles have seat belts, reclining seats and for the comfort of all passengers, have a ‘no smoking’ policy.
