Uganda Safari Guides Association (USAGA)
The Uganda Safari Guides Association (USAGA) was formed in 2000 by tour guides and specialists of tourism sub-activities such as birding, butterflies, reptiles, and cultural tourism, to provide a platform to increase their visibility and recognition as key actors in the tourism industry. USAGA was formally registered as a company limited by guarantee on 14th May 2004, and has since grown in membership and is recognized as the umbrella association of all tour guides and associated clubs in Uganda. USAGA’s organizational structure is governed by the General Assembly whose authority is delegated to the Executive Committee and operationalized through a secretariat based in Kampala. USAGA membership includes ordinary, corporate and associate members, and with 600 individuals currently registered as ordinary members.
