Carolyn M.

Entebbe, Kampala, Uganda

My name is Carolyn. For the past 5 years, I worked as a web developer for a startup in Kampala.

I enjoyed it and learned a lot. Being a perfectionist and into details made the job a perfect fit for me.

When I got married and my health took a turn for the worst, I could no longer keep writing code way into the wee hours of the night. I had to make some serious changes.

I have always loved travel. As a child, my father would often travel together. He was an awesome storyteller who made any journey epic. I feel free on the road and in the great outdoors. Cooking up adventures, and planning the next trip is my drug - something I live for. Naturally, I turned to that.

When planning your visit to Uganda, I will be happy to help put together a memorable tour. While on your Ugandan holiday you will get to learn about our culture and interact with the friendly people (Uganda is the friendliest country in Africa), enjoy tasty freshwater fish by Lake Victoria's shores while getting to know what makes its water green. You will also experience the most serene boat ride on the river Nile, take a wild bodaboda ride and discover what a Rolex is in Kampala. And just so you know, no tour is complete without a wildlife safari.

I like to show travelers how ordinary people live, how enterprising Ugandan people are, and talk about our history and how it has shaped us. I believe in showing all facets of Uganda so you can form a balanced opinion and hopefully fall in love like many others have.

When I am not curating experiences or on a tour, I can be found planning happy couples' honeymoons, my own adventures with friends, reading a book, or on Pinterest lusting after gorgeous home decor.

A Recent Review of this guide

Tour started at 07-45 finished at 00-30. what a day, wonderful city tour of Kampala by Carolyn and James two very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides. They brought everything to life Churches, Mosques, Palaces and the University, walking through atmospheric markets bartering for your goods Fitting in an interior viewing of the Parliamentary Building even though the government ministers were sitting. Great choice of restaurant at mid day, we chose local food, Ending the day at a Cultural Show with a BBQ
