Wild Frontiers Uganda, based in Entebbe, has been operating safaris in Uganda since 1996 under the operational company G&C Tours Ltd. Its team of carefully chosen local specialists are owner-managed by Paul and Jane Goldring, both born and raised in Africa, and who are committed to its long term future.
It all began with an opportunity in the marketplace for quality, professionally guided, camping and accommodated safaris. Demand for more specialist safaris such as birding and sport fishing allowed the portfolio to grow. In 1998 with the establishment of Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, offshore from Entebbe, the lake based operations grew further providing transport for different tourism activities on Lake Victoria as well as establishing a tented camp on the island.
As further accommodation opportunities arose, Exclusive Camps and Lodges was formed, to manage the camp and lodge portfolio now consisting of: Buhoma Lodge in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Ishasha Wilderness Camp in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Baker’s Lodge in Murchison Falls National Park, as well as a Platinum Camping; a “luxury” mobile camp that is set up on demand in wilderness areas where exclusivity is required.
In 2008, the boat safari operation was launched in Murchison Falls National Park, catering for visitors and sport fishermen requiring boats on the Nile River.
Wild Frontiers’ current varied, but specialist portfolio, has seen the company evolve into one of Uganda’s leading tour operators offering professional services in different areas of the tourism sectors. We now run all of our operations from our support office in Entebbe which includes a dedicated workshop facility with mechanics / engineers who constantly maintain and repair our vehicle and boat fleets as well as fabricating much of the infrastructure for our camps and lodges.
Wild Frontiers is a full and active member of the Association of Uganda Tour Operators (AUTO) Wild Frontiers and has an active Responsible Tourism Policy.
