Matoke Academy

for Guides

As part of the Matoke Academy, Matoke Tours offers in-depth training opportunities for experienced and aspiring tour guides. Our guide training programs are aligned with our initiatives.

Adventure Travel Guide Training Program

Uganda’s tourism sector is currently majorly focussed on primate-tracking activities, making the south-western region a travelers’ center of attention. But, with its incredible diversity of nature, culture and wildlife, Uganda is the perfect destination for authentic adventures – beyond primates. With over 45 tribes, Uganda as well presents a rich cultural diversity and variety in languages and dialects, foods, dressing, customs and beliefs. Unique and responsibly developed activities allow genuine interaction with communities and create unforgettable immersive experiences. Developing and promoting Uganda as an adventure travel destination is one of our approaches to work towards a more inclusive destination with opportunities to participate in and to earn revenue from tourism activities for all regions in Uganda.

Female Tour Guide Bootcamp

Female Tour Guide Training Program

Gender inclusion is an important pillar for Matoke Tours. Cultural, societal and economical barriers often make it impossible for women to consider a career in tourism in Uganda. To facilitate a change in perception, Matoke Tours actively involves women to participate in (tour guiding) training programs and develops female-only initiatives to stimulate dialogue about female participation in the tourism industry amongst tourism stakeholders, aiming to trigger a sector-wide participation in achieving positive social change.
