The company traditionally established in the early 2005 when our reputation was built on privately guided safaris, birding, walking and canoeing trails on Lake Bunyonyi in Kabale. Always on the look-out for alternative safari destinations and adventures across East Africa, Zarcar Safaris has spread wings and today provides Active Amazing Africa Adventure Travel across Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda.

In 2015 we incorporated and registered Zarcar Safaris to launch its operations in tailor-made guided small-group adventures in Uganda and Rwanda – countries where our expertise was already very strong. This has since expanded into Kenya and Tanzania – brining different styles of tailored small interest-group safaris to countries and areas that we know exceedingly well.
