The Foundation of Love Uganda Safaris
McMillan Emmanuel founded Love Uganda Safaris in 2014 as a source of funds to help support his orphanage that he started earlier in 2012. In order to fully cater for the children at Love Uganda Foundation, McMillan had to devise possible means with the little he could afford to get. This re-developed his passion in the tourism sector since he had worked as a travel guide for quite a number of years.
With his experience as a travel guide and the passion he had towards wildlife, he decided to start up a travel agency later he incorporated in his Brother Kyeyune Robert Paul. The agency name was derived from Love Uganda Foundation following all the challenges faced; McMillan has always struggled hard to ensure that the company offers excellent services to its clients.
Together we have managed to establish partnerships in various areas including USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, UK, France, Spain, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, Polland Burundi, Tanzania and Rwanda. The company has organized various safari itineraries in East and Central Africa as well Southern Africa.
