The Volcanoes Family

Francis Kiwanuka

Francis grew up in Masaka, a town that sits to the west of Kampala and he has been a guide for over 20 years. He has experienced some amazing things whilst working as a guide; you should really ask him to tell you a few stories from his safaris! Like all of Volcanoes Safaris’ guides, Francis speaks a number of languages including English, Swahili, Kinyarwanda and Luganda.

Francis’ favourite place to take Volcanoes guests is Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. He has often seen the gorillas hanging around Bwindi Lodge and eating the lush vegetation that surround the bandas. Francis not only loves gorillas but he also has a great respect for the elusive leopards that he tries to spot when in QE National Park and Murchison Falls.
